Powering IT With Visibility and Scalability

Power IT

Rack power distribution units (rPDUs) are the “last mile” in the IT power chain. They not only expand the number of devices a rack can support, they can provide insight into power usage and enable remote outlet-level control of equipment power.

Selecting the Right rPDU for Your Edge Site

With a myriad of options available, choosing a rack PDU for your application can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s how to ensure you select what you need:

  1. Define total power requirements

    Determine the total kilowatts (kW) for the server rack where the rPDU will be installed.

    Make sure you have desired power capacity available. Some sites have capacity that is limited by power availability.

  2. Determine device requirements

    Identify the amperage, voltage, and receptacle type for the equipment you will be connecting to the rPDU.

    If you’re unsure about the requirements of future sites, but want consistency across the network, Vertiv™ Geist™ Universal rPDUs are a smart choice.  

  3. Select the level of intelligence your application requires


    Reliable power distribution without monitoring or switching


    Reliable power distribution with local power monitoring


    Reliable power distribution with local and remote power monitoring


    Reliable power distribution with local and remote power monitoring and ability to switch outlets on and off

    For distributed edge applications, Monitored and Switched rPDUs deliver high value by enabling remote, centralized power management. Learn more about the different types of rack PDUs.

  4. Select your configuration and outlet needs

    Horizontal rPDUs have 8-16 outlets. Vertical rPDUs have up to 54 outlets and do not consume any rack space.

  5. Choose a stock configuration or configure to order

    We have a broad range of rPDUs in stock but also offer configure-to-order solutions that allow you to define chassis color, outlet and plug type, intelligence, and cord length for your rPDUs.

    Configuration Options
    Chassis Color
    Outlet & Plug Type
    Chord Length
