The new Eaton G3 Managed ePDU models offer advanced power management (metering) and precision control (switching), including ability to measure power consumption at the outlet level, turn off unused outlets, remotely manage equipment and obtain level 3 PUE (power usage effectiveness). Eaton Managed PDUs allow you to monitor and control critical factors such as voltage, current and power factor. This level of information allows you to make the right decision when it comes to energy consumption in your data center. Integrated with Eaton's management software, you can control these units from any computer.
Outlet-Level Switching: Remotely control devices by powering on or off individual outlets. Save time and operating costs by rebooting machines from your control center without costly site visits. Turn off unused outlets - Secure and protect your environment by easily turning off unused outlets.
Outlet-Level Monitoring: Acquire more accurate and detailed data by measuring power at the outlet level, section level, or pdu level. Gain energy analysis at a deeper level to make informed decisions and assist with effectively deploying equipment.
±1% Billing Grade Accuracy: ePDU G3 provides one percent revenue-grade power monitoring for higher accuracy in department billing or collocation data centers. You are able to effectively measure power usage to all outlets and identify open capacity, resulting in full-power utilization. Utility rebate programs also require measurements that meet revenue-grade standards.
Advanced LCD Pixel Display: The new ePDU G3 LCD pixel display simplifies local setup and trouble shooting. It also allows you to view voltage, power, total input, meters, LCD orientation and alarm history. In addition, the menu-driven display changes from blue to amber during an alarm situation, visually alerting you of a problem.
Network Management: Manage ePDU G3s using a web browser or via SNMP integration into monitoring or DCIM software. Simplify management by using the daisy-chain capability to manage up to four ePDU G3s with a single IP address. Avoid costly site visits by remotely rebooting and monitoring the site, allowing more time to manage other critical tasks
Daisy chain IP addresses: Eatonís new patented daisy chain is available on all network-connected ePDU G3 models. This feature allows four ePDUs to share the same network connection and IP address, resulting in a 75 percent reduction in network infrastructure costs, compared to competitor rack PDUs that require a dedicated IP address.
Hot-swap Meter: Eatonís new hot-swap eNMC (ePDU Network Management and Control) module can be replaced without the need to power down your rack. As a result, you not only increase uptime, but also enhance serviceability and save money on an unnecessary service calls.
Environmental monitoring (Optional) The optional environmental monitoring probe connects to the serial port and enables you to collect temperature and humidity readings in the rack environment to monitor environmental data remotely. You can also monitor the status of two contact closure devices, such as door switches.
High Operating Temperature: All ePDU G3 models are fully functional in high operating temperature environments up to 140įF (60įC), 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 116įF, a higher operating temperature is needed for most modern hot-air containment solutions.
Outlet Grip Plug Retention: Eatonís new IEC outlet grip secures plugs in place with a lever actuated grip thatís integrated into each outlet. Once the levers click into the grip position, the plugs are secured from accidental disconnect.
Color-coded Outlet Sections: Each color-coded outlet section matches a corresponding circuit breaker. 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 donít 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.
