Posted on May 24, 2024

West Hartford, Conn. (May 24, 2024)Legrand, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, is proud to announce that its Raritan brand’s PX4 Intelligent Rack Power Distribution Unit (PDU) has been honored with two prestigious industry awards at the recent Data Centre Solution (DCS) Awards and Electrical Review and Data Centre Review Excellence Awards.

The innovative PX4 intelligent rack PDU was selected by the DCS Awards as Data Centre Power Distribution Unit of the Year. Winners were established by receiving the most public votes from the readership of the Digitalisation World and Data Centre Solutions stable of publications, announced on May 23, 2024, at London’s Leonardo Royal St Paul’s Hotel.

This recognition follows another major accolade for Legrand, with its Raritan brand’s PX4 intelligent rack PDU also winning the Electrical Review and Data Centre Review Excellence Awards for Data Centre Power Product of the Year on May 16, 2024, at the ceremony held at London’s Christ Church, Spitalfields.

These awards recognize and reward the best of data center industry innovation and outstanding achievements. This year’s awards celebrated companies and individuals who are shaping the data center sector with forward-thinking design and implementation, and championing the highest environmental, safety, and energy efficiency standards.

The PX4 intelligent rack PDU has earned its top spot for its industry-proven, flexible outlet technology and innovative continuous power quality monitoring capabilities. These unique features provide a granular level of real-time power quality measurement data needed for rack power optimization to ensure uptime. The PX4 revolutionizes rack PDUs with advanced features, including total harmonic distortion measurement at both cabinet and device levels. These PDUs offer data center operators highly accurate (+/- 0.5 percent) internalized power quality monitoring and metrics with waveform capture capabilities. The visibility of peak and min/max power measurement values aids in capacity planning and failover planning, while Circuit Breaker Trip Forensics with Waveform Capture assists facility managers in pinpointing the exact outlet and potential cause of a trip, with power quality data to aid in preventing future occurrences. 

“We are thrilled that the PX4 intelligent rack PDU’s innovative outlet technology and groundbreaking intelligence features have been honored with these two prestigious awards,” said Joe DeLong, VP/General Manager, Legrand’s Data, Power, and Control division.” The PX4 Rack PDU exemplifies the pinnacle of advanced power quality monitoring, providing unmatched density, flexibility, reliability, security, and precise data collection, empowering data center operators to achieve operational excellence.”
