Eaton Enhances Data Center Rack Power Distribution Line with Hot-Swap Fuse Capability for High-Density Applications

Rounding out its ePDU G3 platform, Eaton’s new fuse disconnect models offer an advanced solution for high-fault currents present in 400-volt and higher power applications.

Power management company Eaton has introduced a new patented fuse disconnect option with its ePDU third-generation (G3) platform in North America. The new fuse disconnect power distribution units are designed to address a common challenge of 400-volt power distribution – offering higher amp interrupt capacity and the ability to clear higher fault currents. Eaton fuse disconnect models provide up to 100 Kilo Ampere Interrupting Capacity (KAIC) fault current protection and a current limiting capability.

To date, many data center and information technology (IT) managers have utilized circuit breakers exclusively because traditional fuses require PDUs to be unplugged when changing or replacing, says Eaton. The ePDU G3 fuse disconnect models aim to resolve this issue by using the company’s Bussmann low profile Compact Circuit Protector (CCP), enabling end-users to safely replace the fuses without removing power.

Offered in conjunction with Eaton’s Basic,†Metered Input,†Metered Outlet,†and†Managed models, the new fuse disconnect option includes all of the same features of ePDU G3 and provide power distribution in applications ranging from small/medium businesses to enterprise data centers. Additionally, Eaton ePDU G3 models are optimized to work with the company’s Intelligent Power Manager software, offering an integrated power management solution to monitor multiple units through virtualization systems like VMware vCenter Server.

With the ePDU G3 Managed and Metered Outlet models, data centers can meter power consumption at the outlet level with one percent revenue-grade power monitoring. Network connected ePDU G3 models can also daisy chain with other PDUs, so that eight devices can share one network port and IP address. All Eaton ePDU G3 models feature an International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) outlet grip, which is designed to hold plugs in place and prevent accidental disconnect.
