Power Rack for High Capacity Power Distribution
The Hewlitt-Packard Co. introduced its power distribution rack (PDR) that improves power management in the data center by moving power distribution to the row level. Housed in a single HP 10000 G2 42U rack, the PDR also saves floor space and allows the movement of heat-robbing transformers off the data center floor, improving cooling. Capable of delivering 400A redundantly, the PDR can power several high density racks with shorter cable runs than conventional site level power distribution systems. Fully redundant inputs and outputs provide dependable power, while protecting IT hardware with high quality circuit breakers. Individual branch circuit monitoring and redundant management modules provide the status and power consumption of each attached rack.
