Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, recently launched a new service offering available in the United States that bundles rack power distribution units (PDUs) with services from the original equipment manufacturer to simplify the deployment and management of these critical power system assets.

The Vertiv™ Distribution Assurance Package is ideal for large facilities or organizations with multiple sites who can’t spare valuable IT resources for the installation and maintenance of rack PDUs. Through a five-year protection plan, the package provides lifecycle support for Vertiv™ MPH2, Vertiv MPX and Knurr® DI-STRIP rack PDUs.

“While rack PDU services exist in the market, none of those providers offer the same level of service and expertise that is available with our Distribution Assurance Package,” said Ben Kissell, director of product management and commercial operations, Vertiv in North America. “Our offering goes beyond an extended warranty by including installation, on-site service, repair, and 100 percent replacement of rack PDUs or components performed by the OEM.”

As part of the Vertiv Distribution Assurance Package, customers have the option of relying on critical infrastructure experts for the removal and disposal of rack PDUs per all application regulatory requirements. Additionally, customers will benefit from 24x7 on-site emergency response for maximum availability of critical applications.
