The first Rack PDU with high power density and switchable outlets
APC’s Switched Rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) are premium solutions to many of the power management problems seen in today’s IT environments. Some of the problems are unauthorized use of power outlets, locked-up equipment, in-rush current, overloaded circuits, and the need of remote access to power outlets in the rack. The Switched Rack PDUs address these problems through individual outlet control, power on and off delays, current monitoring, alarm thresholds, and network management. Individual outlet control allows users to turn outlets on, turn outlets off, or recycle power to equipment, which can reboot locked-up equipment and avoid unauthorized use of outlets. Power delays allow users to determine the order in which equipment is powered up or down. Utilizing the power delay feature will avoid in-rush current, which can cause overloads. Monitoring the current draw at the rack level is key to avoiding downtime due to overloaded circuits. The Switched Rack PDUs provide an aggregate current draw, which can be viewed remotely or locally, via digital display. In addition, alarms will be generated based on user-defined thresholds to alert users of potential circuit overloads (NOTE: Currently available on select models only. Please see feature list for availability per SKU). Users can access, configure, and control the Switched Rack PDUs through Web, SNMP, or Telnet Interfaces.

Features & Benefits
Availability
Local Current Monitoring Display The aggregate current draw per power distribution unit is displayed on the unit via a digital display. The local digital display helps installers avoid overloaded circuits by providing a visible warning when the current draw is close to the maximum amperage draw of the strip. (Available on designated SKUs only)
Alarm Thresholds Define alarm thresholds in order to avoid overloaded circuits. Network and visual alarms inform the user of possible problems. (Note: Only available on units with the current monitoring capabilities. Please see SKU specifications for availability)
Network Management Full-featured network management interfaces that provide standards-based management via Web, SNMP, and Telnet. Allows users to access, configure, and manage units from remote locations to save valuable time. Associated with this feature is the ability to quickly and easily upgrade the firmware via network download to installed units for future product enhancements.
Remote Individual Outlet Control Remotely manage outlets so users can turn outlets off that are not in use (prevent overloads) or recycle power to locked-up equipment (minimize costly downtime and avoid travel time to equipment).
Power Delays Allows users to configure the sequence in which power is turned on or off for each outlet. This helps avoid in-rushes at start-up, which can cause overloaded circuits and dropped loads. Sequencing also allows users to predetermine which piece of equipment is turned on first so other equipment dependant on that unit will function properly.
InfraStruXure Manager compatible Enables centralized management via APC's InfraStruXure Manager.
Load Indicator LED Indicates overload and warning conditions based on the user-defined alarm thresholds. Alerts users of potential overloaded circuits.
 
Agility
Rack-Mountable Includes horizontal, vertical, and toolless-mount varieties. Puts power where it is needed most - in the racks near the equipment.
Wide range of input and output connections Product family includes a variety of input and output connections to distribute 120V, 208V, or 230V power to multiple outlets. Having a variety of inputs and outputs allow users to adapt to varying power requirements. APC offers units that bring up to 12.5kW using a single branch whip.
