Besides kWh and current remote monitoring, the ability to switch on / off per outlet is another key requirement for intelligent PDU. Especially for the data center with 24/7 operation, it needs the remote outlet switching function so that the unresponsive IT equipment can be rebooted remotely to minimize the downtime.
As a result, switched PDU is an essential cabinet component for mission critical data center. InfraPower WS includes all the power monitoring features of W model. In addition, it allows individual outlet switch on / off remotely through the InfraPower management software. By applying the top edition of IPM-03, outlet switching on / off scheduling can be achieved for an advanced switching management.
This also allows remote monitoring with the use of an IP dongle via a simple, secure web based GUI management interface. WS PDU can be cascaded up to a maximum of 16 PDUs using a low cost Cat6 patch cord allowing access control and monitoring via a single IP address over an Ethernet network.
All W Series (W, WI, WS and WSI) Austin Hughes PDUs will require 1x IP dongle (AH-APDUIPD02S) per 16x cascaded PDUs. Sold Separately.
Austin Hughes IP Dongle with SNMP for all W Series PDUs
For IP PDU access, simply connect 1 x IP Dongle for all daisy chain PDUs to save IP network address. Each IP Dongle allows access to 16 PDU Levels. Patented IP Dongle provides IP remote access to the PDUs by a true network IP address chain.
The real time monitoring provided by the WS PDU cannot only help by reducing manpower and related travel costs, but can also help users with capacity planning and improving the overall efficiency of the data center.
Power Efficiency Management
With today’s increasing demand for high technology power management solutions, PDU kWh measurement and the associated software allow data center managers to make key decisions regarding the most efficient use of power. The need to maximize power efficiency to reduce cost is high up the corporate agenda. For 24x7x365 operation, a small increase in efficiency can result in major savings in running cost. W series PDUs provide the kWh measurement for an effective planning on the power capacity. Models with outlet level kWh measurement are also available.
Uptime and Productivity Improvements
Uptime and productivity improvements are achieved through the remote management. W series PDUs support daisy chain connections allowing up to 16 PDUs to be cascaded via Cat6 cables. All the PDUs are remotely accessed via only one network IP address. The GUI software provides easy-to-learn tools for the PDU remote management. It is simply accessed via the web browser to access all the connected PDUs in anywhere around the world. Ultimately, this can help reducing manpower and travel costs by negating the need for staff to actually be at the equipment location.
Green Data Center Movement
Growth of data center development increases power requirements and hence causes not only operation cost issues but also environmental concerns. It needs to monitor, measure and manage power consumption in order to get you on the path toward power saving for green data center operation.
The kWh energy consumption measurement provided by W Series PDU solutions helps driving the green data center movement by enhancing the power distribution management on data center.
Field Replaceable Metre
The 1.8" LCD colour display provides a sharp and highly visible reading of energy consumption, power, current, temp-humid, etc. Local setup can be made by using a membrane switch indicating ‘up’, ’down’, ‘enter’ and ‘back’ options. The field replaceable display design helps eliminating maintenance downtime by simply replacing a possible defective meter without a service interruption. The connection ports for the PDU daisy chain as well as the temperature & humidity sensors are conveniently positioned for easy access.
* For selective high density outlet & 63A configurations, 2.8" touchscreen display will be applied
Reduce IP Address Costs within the Network
The patented hot pluggable IP dongle provides a highly cost effective method to access W series intelligent PDUs.
It is designed to support daisy chain connections allowing up to 16 PDUs to be cascaded via Cat6 cables - all the PDUs are remotely accessed via a single network IP address Ultra Density PDU Management
W series PDUs are designed to support daisy chain connections, up to 16 PDUs can be remotely accessed via one single IP.
InfraPower Manager, IPM-04, supports up to 50 IP groups, and hence centralized management for 800 PDUs can be achieved. Software Functionality
Free IPM-04 allows an advanced PDU remote management for up to 800 PDUs. Features include kWh / Amp monitoring, outlet switched on / off, outlet measurement, outlet scheduling, temp & humid monitoring, reporting, alarm setting, etc.
PPS-02-S preloaded by the IPD-02-S provides an easy and simple PDU monitoring for PDU technical management. Broadest Portfolio of Intelligent PDUs
In addition to supplying cost-effective standard PDU models with a great delivery schedule, competitive custom PDU configurations for specific user requirements are also available on short lead-times. Coloured PDU Casing and Power Cords
Coloured PDU casings and power cables provide the simplest way to enhance the cable management and visualize the power sources.
Users can simply distinguish the PDU from which power source according to the colour of the PDU casing or power cable. Options available on request. Short Length Vertical Casing Design
The short length vertical casing design of InfraPower maximizes the number of outlets.
W series PDU with standard 1650mm / 65 inches casing supports 20 x UK outlets ( 1425mm / 56 inches for 20 x Schuko ) thus saving space within the rack. Wide Range of Configurations
The PDUs range from 6 to 20 UK or 8 to 20 Schuko outlets giving customers the flexibility to meet budget and application demands 63A PDUs
In part due to the popularity of ultra-thin blade servers, sometimes a tremendous amount of computing power is required for equipment mounted in a single rack.
63A models are available for such high power usage requirements. * Only available for 230V W Monitored models PDU Mounting Options
InfraPower PDUs are supplied with 2 types of mounting kits; Vertical Button Mounting Kit & Vertical Bracket Mounting Kit.
The tool-less kits can be used on the majority of global branded racks
