How difficult are Liebert MP Advanced Power Strips to install and setup?
With both in-rack and vertical power strips, single-phase or three-phase inputs, and a variety of output plug types, the Liebert MP Advanced Power Strips will work with almost every manufacturer of power, rack or cabinet systems. The Liebert MP Advanced Power Strips come with an easy-to-use â€œQuick Startâ€ guide. Most people have no problems with installation.
What makes Liebert MP Advanced Power Strips worth the extra money compared to a standard strip?
Liebert MP Advanced Power Strips are more than several times the value of ordinary power strips that do nothing more than distribute power. They can monitor power use at the strip level and can control power at the outlet level. The Liebert MP-M Series Strips provide real-time local and remote display of total strip volts, amps and true RMS watts, with renameable receptacles for inventory tracking. The Liebert MP-C Series Strips have the same monitoring capabilities and can be used to switch power on and off to individual plugs, preventing unauthorized connections.
Most data center customers realize a payback in under a year from reduced administration and problem prevention. And customers with remote locations can get full payback on their investment by preventing a single service call.
What makes these better than others Iâ€™ve seen for sale?
For greater reliability, Liebert MP Advanced Power Strips use â€œPCB distributionâ€ to connect receptacles to the power bus. Other types of connections used by competitive units, such as punch-down connectors, provide far less reliability over time, because they may fail more often.
