Increasing power demands and density in the equipment cabinet requires new functionality from your cabinet PDU.The Sentry Cabinet PDU product family uniquely meets these demands.
The Sentry Cabinet or Rack Power Distribution Unit (CDU) is an intelligent PDU with local LED input current monitoring, allowing network engineers to utilize the Cabinet PDU's True RMS Power Monitor to precisely measure the current (in amps) that network devices are drawing on the power circuit. As new equipment units are added to the power drop, immediately observe its impact on the cumulative current draw. This allows the engineer to safely load each circuit to its maximum allowable load capacity without the danger of overloading the power circuit.
This Cabinet PDU meets new UL 60950-1 Branch Circuit Protection requirements. Each branch circuit utilizes a Bussman® SC fuse as an Overcurrent Protection Device (OCPD).Now you can safely run 30-amp power drops to your server cabinet where individual outlet receptacles have lower output ratings (i.e., 20-amps).
