​The MPE Rack PDU is a power distribution unit for data center applications. It provides all the requisite functionality of a rack-based power distribution unit and ensures that power is distributed reliably. It can be connected up to all manner of IT equipment and other sensitive devices.
  • Operating temperature up to 60°C
  • Ultra-small yet robust aluminum housing
  • Input cable with an extra-large wire diameter
  • 20 A overload switches on all 32 A models
  • Anti-removal safeguard on all IEC60320 outputs
  • Simple tool-free installation in server racks

​Focus on high availability:

  • Specially developed for high power density and very high operating temperatures.
  • Prevents early shutdowns at high temperatures and in the event of peaks in starting current.
  • The IEC60320 connecting cable cannot be pulled out accidentally.
  • Robust aluminum housing boosts the PDU’s mechanical stability.
  • The use of cables with an extra-large wire diameter prevents an overload on the neutral conductor.
Faster installation and lower operating costs:
  • Simple physical and electrical installation helps reduce costs.
  • The unit can be supplied preinstalled in a rack, meaning no additional work is required on site.
  • A flexible cable infeed makes it easier to install the unit in a rack.
  • Its very flat design, including for the overload switches, leaves as much space as possible for installing other components and more space for airflow in the rack.
  • Fixed-connection models enable the input cable to be connected up at the customer’s premises to suit specific requirements.
  • “SpeedMount” function for installation in a Knürr DCM/InstaRack saves time and money when installing on site.
  • Wide variety of models, with infeeds up to three-phase 32 A and a range of different outputs. Country-specific variants also available for Schuko, the UK and Switzerland.
