Switched Rack PDUs

You’re viewing Server Technology’s family of Switched POPS PDUs. These Switched Per Outlet Power Sensing PDUs feature highly accurate, outlet-level power monitoring for your data center power needs. Switched POPS PDUs are expandable and offer optional temperature and humidity probes. They also feature rack level power management, input power monitoring, environmental (temperature and humidity) monitoring, outlet groups and alarms.

With Per Outlet Power Sensing, you can see measurements for load (in amps), voltage, active power, apparent power, crest factor, power factor and power consumption (measured in W-hrs). Certain models also feature retractable fuse or breaker branch circuit protection. With POPS technology, outlets may be linked to one or multiple groups without loss of control of that individual outlet. SNMP trap email alerts give you automated warnings for power and environmental conditions. POPS units are also expandable, with the ability to add additional outlets through the link unit without additional IP address. The optional humidity and temperature probes are attached to 10-foot cords that allow for measurements in various locations within the cabinet. You can then view the values from the rack PDU interface or send out trap email alerts to warn when certain thresholds have been met or exceeded.


Outlet Groups:
- Control user-defined group(s) of outlets
-Grouped outlets can still be individually remotely controlled
-See outlet status, control state

Input Power Monitoring:
- View input power feeds by branch/phase
- Input load and power

SNMP Traps and Thresholds:
- With POPS, you can configure SNMP traps for outlets and power input feeds
- Define your high and low loads
- Configure your traps for environmental monitoring (humidity and temperature)

More about POPS:
- Simple, secure, integral web interface GUI configuration tool
