This Sentry POPS Switched CDU provides the capability to securely monitor power per individual outlet/ device. Power information per individual outlet/device or outlet group includes current, voltage, power (kW), apparent power, crest factor, accumulated energy, and power factor. POPS Switched CDUs combine networked configuration and management with power distribution and power and environmental monitoring.
Per Outlet Power Sensing and Control Power monitoring and information per individual outlet/device. POPS units can also be controlled on an per outlet basis - assign outlets to a group for control of dual-power supply servers and other gear with a single command. Create an unlimited number of groups with any combination of outlets associated to each group. Power information includes:
Current Load (A)
Apparent Power (VA)
Power Factor per outlet
Using our grouping technology, using clustering power information is available per device, groups of devices (application), individual CDU or cabinet. kW and kW-hour power information that can be utilized for billing, power monitoring, SNMP trending and power reports. Use the firmware interface (Web or serial) to edit individual outlet receptacles with a 24-character outlet receptacle name. Identify each receptacle with the device's serial number, IP address, asset allocation #, department or any other method to individually name outlets.
Combine the Sentry POPS Switched Cabinet CDU with the Sentry Power Manager (SPM) software tool to cluster outlets and gain power usage information across multiple Cabinet CDU's individual IP address - Easily establish PUE and DCIE efficiency ratings.
Network Access and Per Outlet Control Individual or group outlet network access power control to cycle power and reboot any selected server(s) or other network device(s). Use TCP/IP (HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, Telnet, SNMP) or RS-232 to communicate with each Sentry Cabinet PDU and rectify locked-up network devices. Reduce Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) a failing server by controlling individual power outlet receptacles to reboot any selected server or other device.
Integrated Temp/Humidity Probes & Environmental Monitoring Two (2) RJ-style connectors located on the face panel of the PDU's enclosure provide support for two (2) Integrated Temperature & Humidity Probes with ten-foot (10') cables provide real-time measurements in the data center cabinet.
An optional EMCU-1-1B Environmental Monitor allows up to (2) additional temperature & humidity probes (EMTH-1-1), (1) water sensor (EMWS-1-1), (4) dry contact closures, (1) analog-to-digital contact sensor. Includes (1) temperature/humidity probe with unit.
Expansion Tower PDU Connect an Expansion Cabinet power distribution unit to any POPS Cabinet PDU to control two power input circuits and manage outlets (individual or groups) under 1 IP address - our exclusive strategy for managing dual power-supply servers
Communications RS-232 serial control via any device with a bi-directional serial port, including a PC, laptop, KVM switch, Console Port Access switch, or terminal server. Use the Sentry Web interface to configure each unit, including network settings, outlet naming & grouping, SNMP traps for environmental & power thresholds and firmware updates. Also use the Web interface to control individual or group outlets and monitor key values, including amperage load(s), temperature/humidity and other environmental conditions. The sentry family of products supports Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Version 3 including LDAPS (LDAP over TSL/SSL). This support enable authentication with LDAP servers; user accounts do not need to be individually created locally on each Sentry device.
