Rack Power Distribution
Switched Rack PDU
Giving you the control of your rack IT equipment
APC Switched Rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) place rack equipment power control in the hands of the IT Manager. Remote outlet level controls allow power on/off functionality for power recycling to reboot locked-up equipment and to avoid unauthorized use of individual outlets. Power sequencing delays allow users to define the order in which to power up or down attached equipment. Avoid circuit overload during power recovery and extend uptime of critical equipment by prioritizing the load shedding. Current metering provides real-time remote monitoring of connected loads. User-defined alarms warn of potential circuit overloads before critical IT failures occur. Users can access, configure, and control Switched rack PDUs through secure Web, SNMP, or Telnet Interfaces and is complimented by APC Centralized Management platforms using InfraStruXure Manager, InfraStruXure Central, Capacity Manager and Change Manager.
Metered Rack PDU
Metered Rack PDUKeeping your eye open for unplanned overloads
APC Metered Rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) provide advanced warning to protect against unplanned power overloads. User-defined alarm thresholds mitigate risk with real-time local and remote alerts of potential unexpected circuit overloads to your mission critical equipment. Metered rack PDUs provides power utilization trends allowing Data Center Managers to make informed decisions on right sizing IT environments to lower total cost of ownership. Users can access and configure Metered rack PDUs through secure Web, SNMP, or Telnet Interfaces and is complimented by APC Centralized Management platforms using InfraStruXure Manager, InfraStruXure Central, Capacity Manager and Change Manager.
Basic Rack PDU
Metered Rack PDUBest value for simple power distribution
APC Basic Rack PDUs provide reliable power distribution via a single input with multiple output receptacles and distributes power from low amperage single phase circuits to higher-power 3-phase solutions.
Rack Automatic Transfer Switch
The only manageable transfer switch in 1U
APC Rack Automatic Transfer Switches (rack ATS) provide reliable, redundant power to single-corded equipment. The rack ATS has dual input power cords supplying power to the connected load. If the primary power source becomes unavailable, the rack ATS will seamlessly source power from the secondary source without interrupting critical loads. Networked units have built-in network connectivity, which allows for remote management via Web, SNMP, or Telnet interfaces.
Rack PDU Accessories
Rack PDU AccessoriesAPC Rack PDU Accessories contain bracket kits specifically designed to mount many of the APC vertical Rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) into third party racks or enclosures as well as a cord retention bracket to help retain power cord connection to the Rack PDUs. Specially designated SKUs in the Basic, Metered, and Switched Rack PDUs can utilize these bracket kits. See features list to see if your Rack PDU is compatible with these brackets.
