Extended IT rack power mapping possibilities with Raritan’s locking solution

Posted on October 23, 2019

Schiedam, the Netherlands (24 October 2019) Raritan, a brand of Legrand, today added two extra colors to its portfolio of popular SecureLock® cables. In addition to black, blue, and red colored cables, customers can now also choose from green and white cables. 

The decision of adding additional colored SecureLock cables was made after data centers increasingly color code their multiple cabinet power distribution chains, thereby requiring an increased number of colors.

The locking cables fitted to SecureLock-ready outlets on intelligent PDUs, such as those from Raritan and Server Technology, prevent mission-critical IT equipment getting disconnected unwantedly from electricity. The SecureLock solution not only reduces the risk of downtime due to accidental unplugging of cables during data center maintenance tasks or vibration in the rack; it is also a simple but effective way of visualizing power paths in IT infrastructures.

Other than visualizing A and B feeds using two different colors as best-practice datacenter design, there is also an increased requirement to distinguish between the different types of equipment connected to PDUs, visualization of pre-set power paths of different customer configurations (i.e. in co-location facilities), and to easily identify between either different plug types or single and 3-phase connections. Another important application is color coding of multiple UPS power paths, which can be found in data centers looking for extra levels of redundancy.

The CE certified locking cables with a maximum temperature rating of up to 70ºC /158 F. are available in different cable lengths (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0 meter) and different plug types for all kinds of IT equipment including C14/C13, C20/C19, but also C14/C15 connectors with flexible rubber sheeted jackets for high-amperage, high heat devices from vendors such as Cisco®, Dell® and HP®.

This smart uptime-aiding locking solution works both with Raritan PX® intelligent PDUs, transfer switches, and Sever technology PDUs. SecureLock cables come in packs of 6 and are now readily available from stock.
