- Improved data center management
Intelligent PDUs include features that aid with data center management, such as metering and remote capabilities.
- Energy Monitoring Function
It can provide abundant functions such as energy usage, efficiency and environmental monitoring in data center etc. The input voltage and current of each circuit can be measured by intelligent PDU, and the usage of power can be calculated in watts or kilowatts. The total energy usage can be calculated, from which the operators of data center decide whether they need to add PDU or not.
- Reduced energy consumption
Monitoring power consumption enables organizations to better gauge power usage. Devices can also remotely turn off outlets when not in use to save power.
- Environmental Monitoring Function
Environmental monitoring and management can be carried out through the existing data center LAN by new generation of intelligent PDU. Intelligent PDU integrates multiple temperature and humidity/moisture sensors. Intelligent PDU can track environmental factors and issue warning timely. In addition, the administrator can also compare the environment data with the energy consumption data to confirm the energy consumption of the server, and inspect actual effect of the temperature control measures for inner rack.
- PDU Access and Network Function
Intelligent PDU can be connected through the LAN form, and be flexibly managed through a Web browser or command line interface (CLI).lt makes the administrator easily access the data, for real-time monitoring.
- Energy consumption data
Intelligent PDUs can monitor energy use and provide data on where and how energy is consumed.
