 Martin In-Row Power Distribution Enclosure (PDE): with Integrated Wire Management


Data center managers, facility managers and design engineers now have a new power distribution system available that will reduce circuit costs, increase flexibility and compliment reliability improvements. The Martin Power Distribution Enclosure (PDE) with integrated wire management reduces sealtight cable costs and the need for external raceways. The wire management is located in the lower front and rear of the PDE and server cabinets for easy access to power circuits. You can easily add additional enclosures to an existing row. Traditional bottom or top cable landings serve non-adjacent Martin Enclosures, various brand enclosures and stand alone systems. The Martin PDE with integrated wire management can be installed in raised floor, reduced height floor and non-raised environments.

Incorporates either one or two 42-pole Square D panel boards into a standard sized equipment enclosure which will reside within the row of cabinets, typically near the center of the row. The 208/120V 225A or 400A Main Power Feeds are brought to the panel boards in the PDE from the PDU or other power source. There is a 400/230V solution also available. The branch circuits are then distributed from the PDE to the other enclosures in the cabinet row. PDE's include optional features such as Single or Dual Feed, Main Breakers, Branch Circuit Monitoring, Input Power Metering, Remote Monitoring via Modbus or SNMP, and TVSS and EMI Line Filtering.

Power Distribution Enclosure (PDE) in server cabinet environment:


Integrated Cable Wireway

From each pole position, circuits are routed to each of the adjacent equipment cabinets via the integrated wireway which is installed at the front and rear of every cabinet.


Single or Dual Circuit Primary Power is delivered, from above or below, directly to the PDE cabinet in each row of enclosures. Power is terminated at a set of terminal blocks or main breakers within the PDE which feed (2) (42)Pole Panelboards.


The Integrated Cable Wireway provides a convenient and cost effective method of distributing power within a row of cabinets without having to run expensive SealTight cable to each enclosure. Removable cover plates allow easy access to cabling. End caps are used at the ends of each row.

Covers to close Wireway at Ends of Rows Quick-Release Cover Plate over Wireway with Security Screw Conduit Mounting Holes for Branch Circuit Wire Entry Integrated Wireway at Front and Rear Typical Branch Circuit Wiring entering PDE Wireway Integrated WireWayat Front and Rear of all Enclosures

Cable Access is provided via the Front and Rear Wireway Channels. Conduit Holes are provided Front and Rear on Inside of Wireway for Cables entering Cabinet from the Wireway.
