Server Technology Rack PDUs

Server Technology power strategy experts have provided rack power distribution units (PDUs) for labs, data centers, and telecommunications operations for more than 30 years. Top global cloud, fortune 100, and technology startups rely on our rack PDUs and award-winning power management solutions to reduce downtime, facilitate capacity planning, and improve energy utilization and efficiency.

Rack PDU Key Benefits:

  • Quality – Our customers state that quality is the number one reason they choose Server Technology rack PDUs to power applications at the cabinet.
  • Superior Customer Support – We are focused on getting you the solutions you need when you need them. Our team includes the largest number of customer support, engineering, and field-based Certified Data Center Designers (CDCD®).
  • Most Patents in the Industry – Our customer-driven engineering culture has led to innovations like High Density Outlet Technology (HDOT®) and patented HDOT Cx® outlets.

Rack PDU Specifications and Unique Features:

Broad Range of Input Power and Form Factors

Server Technology rack PDUs range from Basic (non-networked) to Switched Per Outlet (networked). Input power options include AC and DC, with input current from 16 Amps to 120 Amps, and voltages from -48VDC to 415V three-phase to deliver power capacity up to 57.6 kW. Our PDU form factors include vertical 0U and horizontal 1U to 4U options

HDOT and HDOT Cx Outlets

When you are short on cabinet real estate and need to power many devices, HDOT offers the most outlets in a 42U tall intelligent rack PDU. Our HDOT Cx Outlet combines a C13 and C19 into one flexible outlet that can accommodate a C14 or a C20 plug.

Alternating Phase Technology

Available on three-phase HDOT and HDOT Cx Outlets, power is wired in an alternating fashion per outlet for simplified load balancing, reduced cord lengths, and better airflow. Alternating Phase Technology helps users reduce costs and simplify the commissioning of three-phase rack PDUs

iX Controller

The iX™ Controller is fully hot-swappable and is the center of intelligence of the new PRO4X generation of rack PDUs. It houses high compute power, Xerus firmware, high visibility display, and multiple connectivity ports. The iX Controller offers industrial-grade reliability and multi-layer redundancy for unmatched failover capabilities. It's the most powerful, reliable, scalable, secure, and easy-to-use controller platform.

Advanced Power Quality Monitoring, Metrics, and Alerting

Server Technology intelligent PRO4X rack PDUs provide revolutionary insights and accuracy (±0.5% metering accuracy) for capacity planning, infrastructure scaling, troubleshooting, and efficiency improvements at the cabinet. With new and industry first capabilities like Total Harmonic Distortion monitoring, Waveform Capture, Voltage Dips and Swells, and Circuit Breaker Trip Forensics, you can confidently reveal and address trends regarding the health and quality of power sources and power to devices at the rack PDU power inlet, circuit breakers, and outlets.

Xerus™ Technology Platform

The Xerus Technology platform is a stack of technologies that range from the PRO4X’s interface and firmware to the hardware that distributes power to your equipment. It delivers security, insights, and seamless interoperability to DCIM and other applications via an open architecture like SNMP, MODBUS, open REST based APIs, and a Redfish® API. The Xerus Technology Platform stack maximizes data center efficiency and uptime by delivering uncompromising security, high compute power, advanced alerting, and complete visibility into your power chain.
