Built-In Failover Power
Advanced Alerting and Intelligence
Circuit Breaker Trip Alarming
Even if one power feed fails, both PDUs in the cabinet maintain network connectivity, and continue monitoring and alerting using the built-in power share capability of our iX7 controller.See it in action
Billing-grade accurate monitoring of user defined thresholds ensure that potential failures are identified far in advance. Real-time alarms notify you of potential risk conditions in the power chain.
Immediately identify faulty power supplies and react to tripped breakers that would otherwise go undetected by building management systems, branch circuit monitoring, or other basic PDU brands.
Employing the most reliable components available, PX Intelligent PDUs with outlet switching (rack switched PDU) consume less energy, protect against in-rush currents, and hold the critical power load even in the event of catastrophic failure.
Rugged Mechanical Design
Full Color Rack PDU Chassis
Redundant Network Connections
Detect hidden problems in your power chain, test for true redundancy, and implement more efficient load balancing with detailed measurements from each server’s power supply.
Easily identify the power source for every AC connection by color-coding your Intelligent PDU. Reduce the risk of unplanned downtime by eliminating human error with full-colored, power coated chassis – not just a small colored sticker.
With a fully hot-swappable onboard controller, PX Intelligent PDUs ensure that servers will never experience downtime when infrastructure repairs are required.
A modern Gigabit Ethernet port, backed up by a second network connection port, ensures monitoring reliability and allows insight to be shared with building management and IT even if they are on two separate networks.
Thoughtful design pays extraordinary dividends. Engineered with electricians, infrastructure managers, and IT experts in mind, PX Intelligent PDUs offer a simple user experience for seamless physical deployment, configuration, commissioning, monitoring, and power delivery.
Color Matrix LCD Display
Sleek and Intuitive User Interface
Zero Touch Deployment
Network Cascading and Built-In Wireless
Far better than plain ammeters, PX Intelligent PDUs simplify commissioning by displaying every voltage, amperage, and energy reading; every alarm; and every configuration setting in a beautiful, high-resolution onboard display. Easy to use local control buttons allow for onsite menu navigation.
CHECKOUT SAMPLE SCREENS
Easily configure hundreds or thousands of individual PX Intelligent PDUs with a multitude of mass configuration options. Methods range from the simple use of standard USB flash drives to sophisticated network-based tools: TFTP, PXE over DHCP, JSON-RPC, and others.
Dramatically reduce the number of Ethernet ports required for deployment by cascading a single network connection across multiple Intelligent PDUs, or by going completely wireless with a Raritan Wi-Fi adapter.
Examine your facility’s energy utilization, hotspots, and PUE in real-time with the insightful yet intuitive integration with Sunbird's® PowerIQ® management interface. Balance heat and power loads, identify stranded capacity, and plan more effectively for future expansion with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Rack power distribution unit hardware will remain in place through multiple technology refresh cycles, often for a decade or more. PX Intelligent PDUs support both your current and future growth demands with the most advanced technology and highest power densities available in the market.
Multiple Connectivity Options
Extensive DCIM Interoperability
Raritan provides the industry’s widest range of designs above 10kW, including rack PDUs rated up to 68kW, allowing you to design enough headroom for both today and tomorrow’s most demanding compute densities.
The Raritan iX7 controller provides a standard gigabit Ethernet for seamless connectivity to modern switching infrastructure in anticipation of future networking topologies.
Compatible with a vast and expanding ecosystem of environmental sensors, PX Intelligent PDUs allow airflow, differential air pressure, temperature, humidity, water/fluid leaks, door lock security, and camera monitoring to be both simple and economical.
