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) makes it possible to carry out the required electrical device tests according to DGUV-V3 even without switching off 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 an external main power meter via Modbus Ethernet, enabling direct PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) calculation.
Thus, one of the most important energy key figures is available in the data center without external software.
