The Avocent Power Management Distribution Units (PM PDUs) include single-phase and three-phase models that support strip-level metering, outlet-level metering or outlet-level metering and switching. This advanced family of rack PDUs includes horizontal and vertical models for a variety of rack configurations in branch and remote offices.
The Avocent PM 2000 and PM 3000 PDUs support outlet-level metering and switching capability to provide data center professionals the tools they need to monitor, measure, reduce and manage their growing power consumption costs of IT equipment.
Thresholds can be created to allow data center teams to know before problems occur and minimize downtime caused by overloaded circuits. With the ability to support up to 22 kW and support for C19 outlets, the PM 2000 and PM 3000 PDUs are well positioned to support the high rack density found in organizations today.
The Avocent PM 1000 PDUs enable companies of all sizes to accurately measure the current, voltage and power for the entire strip and the circuits within. The PM 1000 PDUs include an LED display and a built-in browser interface for local and remote access to real-time data. The strip-level metering feature, along with the capability to set custom thresholds, allows companies to optimize their electrical infrastructure, without the risk of downtime due to overloaded circuits.
All of these PDUs include advanced features that consist of a built-in network port for access to the browser interface, daisy chain ports for easy installation and expansion and support for external, environmental sensors.
For a total solution, the PM 1000/2000/3000 devices can be used with other Avocent appliances for integrated IP access to the attached equipment, along with power measurement and/or control for improved remote management.
When used with the DSView® 3 management software users gain secure access and control across multiple locations. The optional DSView 3 Power Manager allows real-time and historical reporting of capacity, consumption and cost across single PDUs or groups of PDUs.
