Sustainability in Rack PDUs

Did you know that all APC NetShelter PDUs offer Green Premium transparency?

The APC Intelligent PDUs take this even further by enabling the reduction of Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions in four ways:
1. Reduces the overall embodied carbon of the PDU itself
2. Make improvements through tracking energy use at different granularities in real time as well, as historically. This can also help you when you are reporting to stakeholders.
3. After identifying energy wasters you can turn off these devices either remotely or onsite.
4. Reduce the emissions and inefficiencies related to travel and onsite support with remote monitoring and management.
