Frequently Asked Questions

Q
What type of readings does the Switched Upgradeable rPDU provide?
A
The Monitored Upgradeable rPDU provides Input Power Monitoring (A, V, VA, kWh, PF) and Circuit Monitoring (A) where applicable determined by the base rPDU model.
Q
Do the Switched rPDUs monitor power usage at the input and circuit level?
A
Yes, the Switched rPDUs monitor and display the input/circuit power readings for the rPDU where applicable determined by the base rPDU model.
Q
What is the benefit to monitoring at the outlet level?
A
Monitoring at the outlet level allows you to pinpoint system-critical failures and take preventative measures. For example, a gradual rise in a server’s current draw over time might indicate a failing power supply. Outlet level monitoring can also track where power is being used for departmentalized power billing in large companies.
Q
What is the accuracy rating of the power readings at the outlet?
A
Outlet Power Measurements Compliant with ANSI C12.1 and IEC 62053-21 at 1% Accuracy Class Requirements.
Q
How many and what type of environmental sensors can be connected to a Switched rPDU?
A
Up to 16 external sensors can be connected to the Switched rPDUs. These sensors can include: Temperature, Temp/Humidity, Flood, Smoke, Door Position and more.
