Dual-Feed PTXL/PTXM-HD16
Data centers today most commonly standardize on dual-power corded servers and network gear as facility managers continue to push for improved network availability. Regardless of the power input feeds, however, servers and network gear do occasionally lock-up and require a reboot procedure to bring them back to operational status. Data Centers aiming for five 9's availability (99.999% uptime) require a remote solution to reduce Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) to reduce down time and improved productivity and efficiency. The Sentry Dual-Feed Power Tower (PTXL-HD16) is designed for servers and other devices with dual or redundant power supplies. It combines intelligent power distribution, remote management, power monitoring and environmental monitoring into a single solution. The PTXL provides Remote Power Management of each power receptacle, individually or as a selected group, via Web, SSH or SNMP management. Users can individually control each power outlet to reboot network servers and internetworking devices. Or, power-off unused power outlets to prevent unauthorized power consumption on power circuit(s).The exclusive Outlet Group Control feature of the power outlet-receptacles from two diffierent power circuits allows a user to easily reboot a dual-power supply server or other device with a single command. Link an expansion unit, the PTXM, to each PTXL to control multiple power circuits with a single user interface. Input current monitoring measures the aggregate load (in amps) on each power circuit. A digital display indicator on the Power Tower provides on-site verification of the load, and the remote user interface screen reports the same current measurement.
