Monitoring energy in a
networked world
The PXGX 1000 is the primary
data acquisition solution for
Eaton power distribution units
(PDUs) remote power panels
(RPPs), rack power modules
(RPMs), power distribution
racks (PDRs), and energy
management system upgrade
kits (EMSs). Data from the
downstream devices are time
stamped and stored in nonvolatile memory. This interval
data can be stored or uploaded
to a destination of the user’s
choice through CSV files. Data
can also be accessed through
any Web browser directly on
the PXGX 1000 down to the
individual breaker level. Users
can move data into Power Xpert
Software, BMS, NMS, building
dash boards, custom software
applications, or virtually any Web
interface. An integral part of the
Power Xpert Architecture, which
provides end-to-end power chain
management, the PXGX 1000
provides a central point to connect distribution products to an
Ethernet network.
Network managers can view
critical downstream device information, such as status, energy
and power quality data with an
easy-to-use interface.
Securely view critical
power data how and when
you choose
Eaton provides the information
needed to make critical power
management decisions to keep
the organization running effectively and efficiently.
You can rest assured that your
information is secure when
employing the PXGX 1000. It
provides password authentication to keep access to configuration separate from general use.
For those seeking additional
security, the PXGX 1000 supports secure, Web-based communication via SSL.
Remotely configure and edit
panel and breaker settings
from your desk
Improve productivity with
Eaton’s ability to remotely
configure or edit panel and
breaker settings in your PDU,
RPP or RPM with the on-board
configuration pages that guide
you through the process.
Additionally, the ‘Save and
Restore’ feature provides an
effective method to reproduce
the configuration if needed at a
later time.
Samples of on-board Web pages
PDU/RPP system and panel summaries
RPM panel summary screen
Intuitive, on-board Web pages provide system summary information
all the way down to breaker information for a given panel. Supports
up to 8 panels and one mouse click takes you to the next panel.
The breakers are graphically displayed in vertical columns. The
phases for each breaker are also displayed. Similar to the
PDU/RPPs, the breakers can be either single-pole, two-pole or
three-pole breakers. The configuration field will automatically adjust
for multi-pole breakers.
Alarm information displays
in red text: alarms are always
visible even when menus are
Active alarm summary page
One page summary that displays active alarms that have not been
closed. This pages allows you to close and acknowledge the alarms
and include a note on both actions. The note will then be captured
in the event log file.
The breakers are displayed in 2 columns, with the odd numbers
breakers on the left and even numbered on the right. The phases are
also displayed. You have the option of naming the breakers for easy
identification and displaying on the PXGX1000 card.
Save and restore settings
Configuring a PDU system can take valuable time – now the configuration can be saved for later use, if needed. This feature is useful for
systems that have multiple panels that will be configured the same.

Remote EMS configuration
Generate Modbus register maps
You now have an option to configure the settings remotely using
the Web interface of the PXGX1000. A panel map will be presented
for easy set up of panel names, rating, warning threshold and alarm
threshold percentages.
All of the data specific to your PDU/RPP/RPM/PDR/EMS system
configuration is immediately available via Modbus TCP/IP to support
building management systems or other analyzer programs. Generate
the register map on the fly with one click of the mouse.
PXGX1000 Easily Installs in the PDU/RPP/RPM/PDR/EMS
The PXGX1000 card is hot-swappable – therefore it can be installed
without turning off power to the unit or disconnecting the load. Just
slide the card into the slot in the unit and secure with 2 screws. The
card draws its power directly from the unit. Then you can begin configuring the network settings using the menus.

View history
Email messages
Monitor the environment
Data history logs, interval logs
and event logs can be viewed
via Web browser, downloaded
for review in MS Excel, or
emailed to others for further
analysis. In addition, the data
can be viewed in Power Xpert
Software, Power Xpert Reporting
and third party ModbusTCP software systems.
You have the ability to customize and direct email notifications
to anyone in your organization.
Select from alarm notifications,
data logs and heartbeat emails.
This provides yet one more way
to effectively and proactively
manage your power system.
The Eaton Environmental
Monitoring Probe (EMP) option
is also supported via the PXGX
1000. The temperature, relative
humidity, and status of two
contact closures can be viewed
in addition to the PDU and
RPP data.
