Raritan’s PX series features four families of intelligent rack PDUs. The PX-5000 family features switched PDU functionality at near billing-grade accuracy. These models are available in form factors ranging from Zero U to 3U. They support input voltages range from 120 to 400V; single or three-phase.
Like all PX rack PDUs, the PX-5000 family provides:
If you’re serious about increasing uptime and saving energy, the PX-5000 family will help you do that in two ways. First, it offers outlet-level metering so that you’re able to see the power draw of every device in your rack. This helps you to prevent unbalanced loads and utilize stranded capacity, and allows you to find ghost servers more easily.
Second, it offers outlet-level switching for remote power management. With our outlet-level switching, you’re able to reboot hung servers or provision outlets for new devices without ever having to step foot in the facility. Sophisticated outlet sequencing capabilities make it possible to power-on equipment in a set order to minimize circuit breaker trips from inrush currents. But most importantly, you can keep outlets switched off to prevent unauthorized access, ensure proper provisioning, and avoid tripped circuit breakers.
