Popular Outlet-Level Feature of Switched PDUs Now in Monitored Units
Chicago, IL (September 10, 2020)—Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, makes it easy to determine the power usage of network devices connected to its new monitored power distribution units (PDUs).
For use in data centers, computer rooms and other IT environments, Tripp Lite’s new monitored PDUs have a popular feature found in many Tripp Lite switched PDUs: outlet-level current monitoring. With this feature, the power consumption of an individual connected device can be monitored locally and remotely in real time. Per-outlet monitoring can be especially helpful for comparing the power needs of network devices and determining exact power usage in co-location environments and other shared spaces.
Available in single-phase and 3-phase models, the monitored-by-outlet PDUs have an HTML5-based LX Platform network interface for remote monitoring. A digital ammeter (single-phase models) or a touchscreen LCD (3-phase models) enables local monitoring. In addition to per-outlet load information, the PDUs provide the total load and the load level per bank (where applicable) of connected equipment.
"Outlet-level monitoring makes it possible to determine the operating costs associated with each piece of network equipment," said David Slotten, Vice President of Product Marketing. "Tripp Lite’s new monitored per-outlet PDUs are a great solution for customers who don’t need outlet switching, but want to use outlet-level information to maximize the efficiency of their installations."
