HPE Intelligent Power Distribution Units (PDUs) provide monitoring of power consumption at the core, load segment, stick, and outlet level with precision and accuracy in a core and stick architecture. Remote management is built into the PDU core for power cycle ability of individual outlet on the Extension Bars and high-precision monitoring of current, voltage, wattage, and power that is 99 percent accurate across the C19 outlets.

Enables world-class management and control to rack-mounted PDUs in order to prevent overprovisioning of power that restricts further growth in your data center. HPE Intelligent PDUs incorporate Power Discovery Services, which when combined with HPE's line of Platinum or Platinum Plus high efficiency power supplies, communicates with the attached servers to collect asset information for the automatic mapping of the power topology inside a rack, speeding implementation time and greatly reducing the risk of human errors that can cause power outages.

Features

Accuracy in Power Monitoring

HPE Intelligent Power Distribution Units automatically detect and map servers and BladeSystem Enclosures to specific power outlets for balanced power usage.

Effectively measures power usage to all outlets on the core and the Intelligent Extension Bars and identifies available power capacity to add more servers.

Gathers information from all monitoring points at half-second intervals so the latest data is collected.

Measures power consumption below 100 MW and lets you know when a server is plugged in and not just powered on.

Greater Flexibility

HPE Intelligent Power Distribution Units have multiple mounting options saves valuable rack space. Flexible mounting of extension bars eases cable management.

Mix different kinds of extension bars on an iPDU core for a variety of configurations.

Displays power consumption for the core, stick, and outlet levels at the rack or remotely from standard web browsers.

Remotely control power per outlet or even per pair of outlets for redundantly powered equipment.

Superior Protection

HPE Intelligent Power Distribution Units have individual breakers for each load segment prevents a problem in one segment from causing a power outage on the entire PDU.

SNMP and email alerts notify operators of impending issues that could cause a power outage.

Remotely locking-out individual outlets on the Intelligent Extension Bars prevents unauthorized equipment from overloading PDUs or circuits.

Automatic redundancy checking detects power configuration errors automatically and notifies IT administrators/operators.

Simple and Easy to Use

HPE Intelligent Power Distribution Units - Simply assign an IP address to the iPDU and it is ready to use.

Automatically detected by HPE OneView, HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM) and Insight Control Power Management software.

Users can be assigned full or restricted access levels as required.
