The power distribution unit (PDU) used in data centers has improved through its original design. Many functions have been integrated into the ever-evolving Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry. In addition, the popularity of personal computers and the Internet has created a tremendous need for data centers, including the power supply of all hardware devices. So the clever power management of power lines meant the lighting of the staff of the ICT staff in the development of better practices for the implementation and control of electrical equipment.
PDU is called the "rack mount power supply" for the "ICT industry". The nameplate is used because the PDU is mounted on an internationally standardized cabinet enclosure that matches the same rack size. For example, cabinet installations such as servers, network devices and other energy-related equipment are manufactured for specific rack sizes. In addition, a common rack is 19 inches wide (482.6 mm) wide where the measurement is performed.
The 19-inch rack connector has power cord outputs for connecting power cords from servers and network devices. In addition, the power supply can power 6 power outputs or even 20 outputs in the power supply. In addition, these units are horizontal, vertical and floor mounted. The data center may require features such as overcurrent protection, thermal magnetic fuses, and built-in power meter monitors for monitoring purposes
The remote device manages day-to-day power management in data centers and server venues. Authorized ICT staff can obtain remote access and control over the PDU in order to maximize the availability of computer network devices. In addition, remote power management allows personnel to alert promptly to problems. In addition, power consumption can be monitored for analysis, stability, capacity planning and reporting for top management. The collected information can provide valuable insight into the network's energy consumption.
Power supply strips in the PDU provide individual performance in some countries; therefore this should be checked before the hardware connection. The power strips used in cabinets with multiple servers can raise high current. Voltage, power and current ratings require attention during the design process. In addition, despite the fact that manufacturers become more environmentally friendly, the actual power consumption of hardware in data centers is high.
Power strips can have mixed output connectors, such as IEC sockets and GPOs. Some suppliers can customize the PDU in special arrangements for large orders. IEC power supplies are ideal because they require a separate connection type for connection. IEC power cables can be connected to a suitable IEC power supply, UPS (UPS) and a server.
Some power strips on both sides, ie on the front and rear surfaces. In addition, there are power supplies of 10 amperes and 15 amperes. You find that the grounding pin on the 15 amp connectors can be of different sizes, for example, the 15 A grounding pin will be larger.
There are smart power supplies on the market that can improve network stability and save money on daily energy costs.
