Chatsworth Products (CPI) proudly announces Power IQ®, a software solution compatible with CPIeConnect® Power Distribution Units (PDUs) for advanced data center monitoring. Power IQ for eConnect is a co-branded collaboration with Sunbird Software, an innovator in software solutions that simplify data center management.
This joint solution provides data center managers with a robust yet simplified monitoring capability, allowing them to optimize power efficiencies and metrics such as Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE), bill for energy and power capacity.
Power IQ for eConnect provides a single pane of glass to make it easier to automatically manage the condition and capacity of data centers via monitoring critical infrastructure devices including CPI's eConnect PDUs, as well as many other manufacturers’ CRACs, UPSs, PDUs, RPPs, meters, branch circuits, racks, rack PDUs and environment sensors.
Additionally, Power IQ supports CPI’s Secure Array™ IP Consolidation, which allows users to link up to 32 eConnect PDUs under a single IP address using standard Ethernet cables, reducing time and costs. Power IQ for eConnect software can be easily deployed as a standalone Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution.
