All SmartPDU models are equipped with calibrated current measurement of the most important current parameters. This means that the consumption data can also be used in the Collocation Data Center for legally compliant billing.
The integrated residual current monitoring (RCM) allows the required electrical equipment tests according to DGUV-V3 to be carried out even without shutdown and contributes to higher electrical safety as well as increased fire protection. The SmartPDUs operate according to the server-client principle. This means that one PDU (server) collects all data from the connected client PDU.
In addition, the server PDU can also read out an external main power meter via Modbus Ethernet, thus enabling a direct PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) calculation. Thus, one of the most important energy key figures is available in the data center without external software.
