PX Intelligent Rack PDUs

Switched PDUs with Outlet-Level Metering

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.

What are the features of the PX-5000 family of switched PDUs?

Like all PX rack PDUs, the PX-5000 family provides:

  • Sensor support for temperature, humidity, airflow, differential air pressure, leaks, vibration, and proximity to help safeguard mission critical equipment.
  • Contact closure sensor support for use with third-party sensors, webcams, and door locks that add an additional layer of physical security.
  • USB port support for Wi-Fi networking, PDU cascading, webcams, set-up and configuration, and at-the-rack display.
  • Support for a proprietary SecureLock outlet and cable system, along with two additional methods which involve retention clips and button locks.
  • Your choice of ten full color PDU chassis that help reduce human error and lessen downtime by making it easier to identify redundant power feeds. 

What makes the PX-5000 family of switched PDUs unique?

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.
