Power Distribution Unit : PDU
The Power Distribution Unit (PDU) is a device that controls and distributes electricity to computer intalled in a rack in data center. The BLUELINE Power Distribution Unit (PDU) is an intelligent power strip that can be used not only to distribute power to other devices but also used to display the power consumption status of the computer equipment installed inside the Rack over the Internet to analyze and manage power usage of each device connected to the output of the Intelligent PDU. The data can be analyzed to calculate the Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) which is the standard for the indication of efficient electric consumption in the data center.
PDU (Power Distribution Unit) is a single-phase unit that connected from the UPS. It can monitor the power status of the computer equipment installed in the rack through LCD display.
