Monitoring is already part of the everyday routine in most data centers when it comes to system availability. For this reason you may decide to install new systems for socket strips/PDUs with integrated monitoring (Managed PDUs or Adaptive PDUs). But what do you do with existing systems in which socket strips/PDUs are usually installed without measuring functions?
Emerson Network Power's solution for this is called IMS (Inline Metering System). These modules allow existing racks with installed basic power distributors to be upgraded accordingly. As almost all server racks are supplied with an A and a B-feed, later installation is possible without interruption. The IMS modules can also be installed space-savingly inside or outside the rack, e.g. in false floor.
