Eaton has introduced new customization capabilities for its ePDU third-generation (G3) platform in the Americas. Building on its portfolio of rack power distribution units (PDUs), Eaton’s customizable ePDU G3 models are designed for fast turnaround of outlet and cord plug configurations, providing the flexibility for data centers and colocation facilities to address their specific power distribution needs.
“Many data center managers are constantly expanding and transitioning to new equipment, which requires implementing power distribution solutions with the flexibility and speed to meet diverse requirements,” says Hervé Tardy, vice president and general manager, Eaton’s Distributed Power Quality Division. “Combined with Eaton’s engineering innovation and fast turnaround, the latest custom-built ePDU G3 portfolio provides flexibility and drives business value for customers.”
Highlighted by enhanced technological features, the ePDU G3 is built with an aluminum chassis that is strong and lightweight. Network connected ePDU G3 models can daisy chain with other PDUs, so that four devices can share one network port and IP address, resulting in a reduction of network connection costs by 75 percent, according to Eaton. Additionally, the ePDU G3 features a new patent-pending IEC outlet grip designed to eliminate the problem of plugs falling out of IEC outlets due to bumps or vibrations.
Eaton ePDU G3 models EMI319-10 and EMI320-10 offer customization capabilities for 400-volt power distribution, designed for optimizing energy efficiency in three-phase data centers and colocation facilities. Engineered for smaller data center deployments and medium-to-high-density IT equipment in computer rooms, Eaton ePDU G3 model EMI200-10 offers 120- and 208-volt distribution from the new Eaton 9PX SP split-phase uninterruptible power system (UPS).
