Power Distribution Rack_ from HP
May 1, 2008
HP’s Power Distribution Rack provides high-capacity power distribution and management in a single 42U rack. The HP Power Distribution Rack (PDR) improves power management in the data center by moving power distribution to the row level. Decentralizing power improves cable management, decreases diagnostic time for problems, and saves installation costs by reducing the size and number of long power feeds required to reach from large wall-mounted distribution units. Housed in a single HP 10000 G2 42U rack, the PDR also saves floor space and allows you to move heat robbing transformers off the data center floor improving cooling. Capable of delivering 400 A redundantly, the HP PDR can power several high-density racks with shorter cable runs than conventional site level power distribution systems.
