Introduction

The 1U Switched and Monitored Power Distribution Units (PDUs) make it quick and simple to deploy, protect, and manage your high-availability rack environment. These space efficient and power dense PDUs come in two unique 1U designs, either nine IEC-320-C19 (16A) and three IEC-320-C13 (10A) or 12 IEC-320-C13 (10A), with single-phase 30A, 32A, 60A, 63A and three-phase 32A and 60A solutions available to meet the requirements of your most power-demanding systems.

The receptacles on these PDUs are switched for additional intelligent power management capabilities. They provide on and off functionality to allow for power sequencing and to help prevent unintended overloading. The PDUs are shown in Figure 1.

Did you know?

These PDUs also combine receptacle density with advanced intelligent power management capabilities that can be remotely monitored and managed via a web interface. Switched and Monitored PDU models don't just monitor the incoming power of the PDU, but also provide a more granular and precise view of power usage at the individual receptacle level.

Part number information

Table 1 lists the four available switched and monitored PDUs. Two require that a separate line cord be ordered from Table 2, and two have a line cord permanently attached.

Introduction to PDUs

A power distribution unit (PDU) is a highly reliable, multiple outlet power strip designed to consolidate line cords within the rack and distribute conditioned power from a UPS or utility power to servers and other IT equipment. The PDU efficiently distributes power within the rack and provides fault-tolerant power redundancy for high availability requirements.

There are three types of PDUs available from Lenovo: basic, monitored, and switched and monitors. The PDUs covered in this document are of the switched and monitored type.

  • Basic: The simplest and most cost-effective power distribution. Available with various outlet configurations and line cord options to support differing systems and load requirements.
  • Monitored (also known as PDU+): Provides the same benefits as a Basic PDU, but adds additional advanced PDU power monitoring down to the load group. This enables businesses to have a cross-platform rack level power and thermal view for trending analysis to improve power management.
  • Switched and Monitored: These are next-generation advanced power management solutions, providing power monitoring at the outlet level, with increased accuracy at low amperages, for more precise views of power consumption down to the individual component/server level instead of at the consolidated load group. These PDUs also offer management via a web-based interface which includes individual outlet switching (on/off).  Outlet switching allows for remote power sequencing and helps prevent unintended PDU overloading.

The Environmental Monitoring Probe has the following features:

  • Temperature and humidity sensor enables you to remotely monitor the temperature and humidity and status of two contact devices in the rack
  • Hot-swap feature simplifies installation by enabling you to install the probe safely without turning off power to the PDU or to the loads that are connected to it
  • Measures temperatures between 0 and 80°C (32 and 176°F) with an accuracy of ±1°C
  • Measures relative humidity between 10 and 90% with an accuracy of ±5%
