ENCLOSURE POWER DISTRIBUTION UNITS (ePDU™)

Core Power is the exclusive representative for Eaton Eaton in Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern Jersey, and Delaware.

epdu powerstripsEaton offers a complete suite of Eaton Enclosure Power Distribution Units (ePDUs) to help IT managers meet their rapidly escalating power requirements. These PDUs complement your Eaton or third-party UPS systems, distributing power to up to 24 or 45 receptacles in high-density rack environments— or anywhere conditioned power must be distributed to multiple pieces of equipment.

Eaton is unique in the industry for providing a tiered set of PDU product families along two dimensions—tiered both in power capacity and in functionality. That means you can precisely match up the combination of features and power rating needed for each application.

The portfolio includes nearly every combination of power rating and functionality level. You are not forced into a high-capacity solution just because they need remote monitoring or other high-end features. Nor are you constrained to buy high-end functionality just because you need high capacity.

Eaton ePDU families by functionality

Basic

Reliable and cost effective power distribution from the UPS to up to 24 receptacles in a rack or wiring closet, substantially reducing the number of plenum cables from input source to each rack.

   

Monitored

Designed for high-density, mission-critical server applications, provides maximum power for both standard and blade servers. Monitored ePDUs provide the circuit level amperage metering through both a local digital meter and Ethernet network capabilities.  This technology allows the data center manager complete access to power information

   
Advanced Monitored Outlet level monitoring of voltage, current, power and energy (KWH).  Provides necessary measurements to calculate Level 3 PUE and to run capacity/usage
   
Switched For receptacle level control, allows the user to remote reboot or lockout individual receptacles. Switched ePDUs also employ local meters as well as networking capability via either Ethernet or serial connections.  Local LEDs show the status of receptacles and an accessories port allows for temperature and humidity probes to manage local environmental conditions
   

Managed

Includes outlet level switching to power cycle (reboot) locked servers or turn off unused outlets.  Outlet level monitoring of voltage, current, power and energy (KWH).  Provides necessary measurements to calculate Level 3 PUE and to run capacity/usage

   
Automatic Transfer Switch eATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) and STS (Source Transfer Switch) ePDU is designed for switching non-phase synchronized AC power sources.  The eATS intelligent circuitry monitors both inputs, providing a fast switch transfer from primary to secondary power critical equipment without interruption,

Features and Benefits

  • Plug-and-power architecture effectively distributes UPS power throughout high-density racks or wiring closets
  • Options available for single-phase and three-phase applications up to 17 kilowatts (KW), flexible enough for blade server and switchgear applications
  • User-selectable combination of NEMA, IEC and hardwired inputs and NEMA and IEC output receptacles
  • Protects against overload conditions and tripped breakers with continuous monitoring
  • Branch circuit protection standard, with UL 489-listed circuit breakers
  • Enhances power availability by using separate circuit breakers for groups of receptacles (most models) to limit the impact of overload conditions
  • Supports remote monitoring and management at the outlet, branch circuit and PDU level
  • Supports scheduled or on-demand turn-on/off of individual outlets to start/reboot remote servers (many models)
  • Saves valuable rack space with flexible mounting options, including 1U, 0U, wall and floor mounting
