Customizable rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) enhance data centre power efficiency by providing the right outlet, place, and time.
Elcom International Pvt. Ltd. has launched the ELCOM – ELGO line of Power Distribution Units (PDUs), which the company claims to be non-intrusive and field-customizable, empowering data centre operators to enhance power usage efficiency (PUE) by providing the appropriate outlet types for servers and networking products at all times. PDUs offer data centre managers enhanced power distribution flexibility. According to the press release issued by the company, the PDUs allow for effortless changes or reconfigurations of electrical outlets, even during operation. This flexibility ensures that data centre operators always have the available outlet options, facilitating hot-swapping of outlets as needed.
The company claims to offer a seamless plug-and-play solution, enabling users to customise their own PDU without prior outlet specifications effortlessly. Apart from its remarkable flexibility, the PDU delivers several other advantages. These include the capacity to upgrade outlets as required, swap connectors as desired, and a finger-safe safety cage compliant with IEC-61032 standards. The PDU allows for outlet upgrades to meet high-temperature requirements. The ability to swap connectors on-site ensures convenient maintenance without any downtime. Safety is a priority, and the finger-safe safety cage provides a secure environment.
At the Data Center World conference in Austin, TX, Elcom Chairman & Managing Director Dr. Girish Vaze said, “We are incredibly proud to announce this innovation in rack PDUs. ELCOM – ELGO extends PDU investments and will save countless hours of downtime that would be otherwise required to deploy new PDUs when equipment changes are made. ELGO will benefit our partners as they will no longer need to stock many different PDU models; instead, they will only need to stock the core PDU chassis, which they can easily configure to any specific requirement, reducing their inventory costs while also eliminating product delays that can occur when a specific configuration is requested that is currently not on hand. Overall, this is a significant win for our partners and their clients.”
