Raritan's Power Business

Raritan was the first to develop and market an intelligent rack PDU, so that power and energy could be better monitored in data centers. It introduced the PX iPDU in 2007.

Today, with more than 625 unique models, Raritan's rack iPDU portfolio is the largest in the industry. To meet the needs of diverse IT environments, the portfolio includes single-phase, three-phase, high power (400V), outlet-metered, outlet-switched, and unswitched rack PDUs and inline power meters.


  • Intelligent rack Power Distribution Units (iPDUs) -- provide real-time remote power monitoring of current (amps), voltage, power (kVA, kW) and energy consumption (kWh) with +/- 1% billing-grade accuracy, even at individual outlets.
  • Environmental Sensors -- monitor temperature, humidity and more.
