HP unveiled the HP 8.6-kVA and 11-kVA three-phase modular power distribution units (PDUs). These PDUs are perfect for blade systems and find and ideal application among customers with a dense data center environment requiring rack-mount power distribution. They address the lack of sufficient outlet receptacles and space in the rack, the difficult to access PDU outlets, as well as the high amperage needed to support blade systems. Each unit uses a standard three-phase input plug and has six IEC C19 outlets. The three-phase PDUs use HP’s unique modular architecture, which is designed specifically for data center customers who want to maximize power distribution and space efficiencies in the rack.
