It’s no secret that the high-tech reality we exist in today often requires us to complete a wide variety of tasks and services on a high-speed network; however, with growing concern about energy and power conservation, it’s important to ask questions about when, where, and how our power is being distributed. As we continue to march towards the future of cleaner technology, how can we monitor and manage our power usage to both match user demands AND lower financial, labor and environmental costs? Schneider Electric offers a sustainable solution with their newest APC Netshelter Switched Rack PDUs.
Rising power densities demand an always “on” IT infrastructure, and that’s why APC has delivered a Switched Rack PDU, designed especially for data centers and remote edge computing environments. IT devices in these environments need certainty, and APC NetShelter 9000 Series Switched PDUs provide just that, with features making them faster to deploy, easier to rely on, and better to manage onsite, or remotely anywhere in the world, with EcoStruxure IT.
What makes these features more sustainable, and why are they important?
Focusing on the environmental impact of data centers across the globe requires innovation and consistent updates to the standardized units commonly used today. With industry-leading reliability, manageability, and security, APC Switched Rack PDUs include advanced load management, on/off outlet level power cycling, and sequencing control. These future-proof elements are important because they enable customizable power control, active monitoring, as well as remote outlet level control for on/off power cycling, allowing us to remotely reboot equipment and restrict unauthorized use of individual outlets to reduce downtime. New 9000 series Switched Rack PDUs also include Gigabit ethernet, 1% Metering accuracy, 60C Operating temperature (select models) with new C13/C15 and C19/C21 hybrid outlets, ability to share 1 network port across 32 PDUs, and enhanced cybersecurity.
Options such as these give us the opportunity to make the most of our energy, further addressing our industrial and environmental priorities that will continue to grow throughout the upcoming years in technology.
