Eaton releases high-density rack power distribution unit
February 11, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
February 11, 2019 – Eaton has launched its high-density rack power distribution unit (PDU) platform in North America.
The high-density rack PDU offers improved outlet counts and the addition of 11 colour options for identification of A/B power feeds. Providing 11 different outlet module options, the high-density rack PDU allows configuration for up to 54 outlets per PDU and unlocks over 20,000 configurable options for users. Alternative phase outlets simplify load balancing and improve airflow by putting outlets where they are needed, which the company says reduces the potential for tripped breakers.
Additional benefits and features of the high-density rack PDU include improved cord entry position; selectable cable lengths and 21 input plug options, including IEC, NEMA, locking and hardwired; bus bar design to implement more outlets in less space; and low-profile circuit breakers, enabling full rack unit access and bolstering airflow management.
Eaton’s high-density rack PDU is currently available in a managed version, providing individual outlet switching and outlet metering.
