Eaton Revamps ePDU Product Line

Eaton introduces new rack power distribution unit portfolio with IEC outlet grip feature.

Eaton has launched the Eaton ePDU third-generation (G3) platform, its newest portfolio of rack power distribution units (PDUs) with a new patent-pending IEC grip feature. The ePDU G3 is designed to streamline the power distribution needs of today’s IT and data center managers with next-generation power monitoring capabilities. The rollout of Eaton’s new platform will begin with Basic and Metered Input models, which are currently available in the Americas.

The ePDU G3 features a new IEC outlet grip designed to eliminate the problem of plugs falling out of IEC outlets due to bumps or vibrations. Eaton’s patent-pending solution can protect data center managers from incurring additional expenses related to cable trays or special power cords, which can increase rack PDU purchase costs.

“Validating Eaton’s commitment to innovation, our new ePDU G3 platform boasts a variety of technological enhancements aimed to deliver the flexibility and reliability that data center and IT managers need, balanced with a value-oriented pricing structure,” says Hervé Tardy, vice president and general manager of Eaton’s distributed power quality division.

Eaton’s ePDU G3 product line pairs its grip feature with energy efficient technology aimed to reduce cooling costs and extend the life of hardware for added reliability. Eaton’s ePDU G3 models have a high operating temperature, up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, which helps data centers meet new temperature guidelines for cooling set by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers. ePDU G3 Metered Input models also offer a hot-swap network meter module so that, in the event of a failure, users can replace the module without shutting down servers.

Network connected ePDU G3 models allow users to monitor multiple ePDUs through virtualization platforms like VMware vCenter Server with Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software. In addition, the platform offers installation with tool-less mounting options and provides a low-profile form factor compatible with a variety of rack enclosures. Additionally, ePDU G3 models have color-coded outlet sections that match their corresponding circuit breakers for easy load balancing. The ePDU G3 Metered Input models include a menu-driven LCD pixel display for easy setup and troubleshooting.
