3 Phase Modular Power Distribution
The SentryTM Modular Cabinet Power Distribution Unit (PDU) family is designed to take a 3-Phase in-feed and distribute single phase power via Basic PDU's that can be placed anywhere in the cabinet rack.
Each Master and Expansion contains qty (3) LED amp meters for simple load balancing, one temperature/humidity probe input, serial connection, IP connection and exclusive link port to connect the Expansion Cabinet PDU for linking Cabinet PDU's on different power circuits together.
For ease of installation, each Basic unit comes with a detachable connector with a strain relief. Basic units are available with a variety of outlet and cord length options. Branch circuit protection is provided within each Basic Cabinet PDU.
Additional Features and Specifications
Remote Power Monitoring
Monitor input power via IP or serial interface.
HTTP/HTTPs Web Configuration & Control
Use the Sentry Web interface to configure each unit, including network settings, outlet naming & grouping, SNMP traps for environmental & power thresholds and firmware updates. Also use the Web interface to control individual or group Outlets and monitor key values, including amperage load(s), temperature/humidity and other environmental conditions. SSL security provides a secure HTTPs connection.
SNMP Management & Event Notification
The Sentry family of products supports the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). This allows network management systems to use SNMP requests to retrieve information and control power for the individual Outlets. The Sentry includes an SNMP v1 agent supporting standard MIB I and MIB II objects. A private enterprise MIB extension (Sentry3 MIB) is also supported to provide Network Access power control. SNMP traps can be generated for various events, including Input Current Load Thresholds (min & max), Temperature Thresholds (min & max), Humidity Thresholds (min & max), water indication, closed contacts (cabinet doors open/close), as well as notification of any time an outlet status is changed (on/off).
Add a Second Tower
Connect an Expansion Cabinet PDU to any Switched Cabinet PDU to control two power input circuits and manage Outlets (individual or groups) under 1 IP address - our exclusive strategy for managing dual power-supply servers.
Zero U Enclosure
A vertical enclosure that occupies Zero Vertical U of rack space in the equipment cabinet. It mounts on the back rails or in the cavity space of the cabinet.
Secure Access - SSH or SSL Protection
Secure Shell (SSH), known as Secure Socket Shell, is a Unix-based command interface and protocol for securely getting access to a network device. Sentry supports SSHv2. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a commonly-used protocol for managing the security of a message transmission on the Internet. SSL is an integral part of most Web browsers (clients) and Web servers. Sentry supports SSLv3/TLSv1.
Integrated Temp/Humidity Probes
Two (2) RJ-style connectors located on the face panel of the PDU's enclosure provide support for two (2) Integrated Temperature & Humidity Probes with ten-foot (10') cables provide real-time measurements in the data center cabinet.
Firmware Flash Upgradable
Access new firmware updates via FTP for new firmware features and code releases. An update to the firmware does not affect the status of the power Outlets.
The sentry family of products supports Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Version 3 including LDAPS (LDAP over TSL/SSL). This support enable authentication with LDAP servers; user accounts do not need to be individually created locally on each Sentry device.
individual input current monitoring ("Load Sense") provides real-time power measurement of the load in amps on each power inlet, accessible via firmware interface.
Serial control via any device with a bi-directional serial port, including a PC, laptop, KVM switch, Console Port Access switch, or terminal server.
24-Character Outlet Receptacle Names
Use the firmware interface (Web or serial) to edit individual outlet receptacles. Identify each receptacle with the device's serial number, IP address, asset allocation #, department or any other method to individually name Outlets.
