Raritan® — a brand of Legrand, and a provider of intelligent data centre management and rack power distribution solutions — has announced its next-generation intelligent power product portfolio. Powered by the new iX7™ advanced controller, a new series of Raritan’s intelligent rack PDUs (iPDUs) now provides additional smart management capabilities that help future proof data centre infrastructures.
Besides distributing power efficiently and reliably, Raritan intelligent rack PDUs with the new iX7 onboard controller provide more compute and memory power to support new applications and to gather and analyse data on electricity used by IT equipment, available power capacity in data centres, and cabinet environmental health. The new iPDUs also provide more sensing and infrastructure data collection points.
The new iPDUs deliver new uptime capabilities — including redundant networking and power sharing — and cost-cutting features, such as expanded iPDU cascading to reduce network implementation costs and costly IP ports and drops.
