Designed for reliable and cost effective power distribution, Eaton Basic ePDUs have the form factor and receptacle choices to meet the needs of the demanding data center architect. With power levels ranging from 1.4 kW all the way to 17 kW, Eaton has the right Basic ePDU for any application. The new ePDU G3 Basic models feature Eaton’s patented IEC outlet grip plug retention, color-coded outlet sections, a low-profile form factor and a high operating temperature.
High Operating Temperature: All ePDU G3 models are fully functional in high operating temperature environments up to 140°F (60°C), resulting in reduced cooling costs. Since ePDUs are located in the back of the rack where server exhaust can elevate temperatures to as high as 116°F, a higher operating temperature is needed for most modern hot-air containment solutions.
Outlet Grip Plug Retention: Eaton’s new IEC outlet grip secures plugs in place with a lever actuated grip that’s integrated into each outlet. Once the levers click into the grip position, the plugs are secured from accidental disconnect due to bumps or vibrations.
Color-coded outlet sections: Each color-coded outlet section matches a corresponding circuit breaker in the new ePDU G3 models. This coding allows you to easily identify which circuit breaker feeds which outlets, and prevents unbalanced loading that could trip a breaker.
Low-Profile Form Factor: The width of the new ePDU G3 Basic and Metered Input ePDUs has been optimized for side mounting, resulting in zero interference into the rail space so you don’t block hot-swap fans or power supplies. Some models feature low-profile circuit breakers to reduce interference when the ePDU is mounted with outlets facing the rail (center of the rack).
Ease of installation: Patented clip feet allow for various mounting methods. Mounting buttons come pre-installed to reduce installation time. Optional side mounting button locations to mount ePDU G3s at a 90-degree rotation in the rack, preventing interference with hot-swap fans and power supplies.
