Why Choose an iPDU?

by Julie Clark on June 22, 2018

We are quite accustomed to the term, usage of, and need for a PDU, or Power Distribution Unit. More recently however, we've been introduced to the term, iPDU, or Intelligent PDU. Why an Intelligent PDU you ask? Well, Panduit is here to elaborate. 

Why choose an iPDU?

Intelligent PDUs differentiate themselves from PDUs in many ways, and have several advantages over their traditional, unintelligent counterparts. From efficiently managing power and energy to environmental management, the iPDU provides many key benefits to managing the data center. 

Some key features and benefits include:

HotSwappable Controller:

Replace the controller and display module without having to power down the rack

Plug & Play Sensors:

Digital sensors not only allow for multiple sensors on the same bus; but also identify themselves to the controller to simplify setup & commissioning.

Load Balancing:

Monitored through visual display on oLED (for 3 phase units only)

Mobile & Desktop Friendly Web GUI:

The intelligent PDUs feature an enhanced designed web interface which detects the type of device that you are on; and automatically adjusts the screen for an optimal experience.

SZ%20iPDUIIThe Panduit® SmartZoneTM G5 iPDU is more than a power distribution unit and energy meter. These iPDUs monitor the data center power and environment (at the rack or cabinet level), by continuously scanning for electrical circuit overloads, and physical environmental conditions that place critical IT equipment at risk. Panduit’s iPDUs provide comprehensive, accurate, energy measurement data to efficiently use power resources, make informed capacity planning decisions, improve uptime, measure PUE (power usage effectiveness), and drive green data center initiatives to save energy and money.

Making the right choice in IT equipment is essential for a safe, efficient data center operation. Our full range of iPDUs, environmental sensors, and dual locking power cords are the key to fulfilling mission‐critical data center needs.
