Panduit Corp. announces the launch of its new next generation advanced SmartZone G5 Intelligent Power Distribution Units (iPDUs).

The Panduit SmartZone G5 iPDU provides best-in-class outlet density, optimal form factor, and superior reliability to monitor the data center power, environment, and security (at cabinet level), by continuously scanning for electrical circuit overloads and physical environmental conditions that place critical IT equipment at risk.

The SmartZone G5 iPDU provides comprehensive, accurate, energy measurement data to allow data center operators to efficiently use power resources, make informed capacity planning decisions, improve uptime, help measure PUE, drive green data center initiatives to save energy and costs, and provide physical security to prevent unauthorized cabinet access.


There are five families of the G5 iPDU:

  • Basic PDU

  • Monitored Input (MI) Series iPDU

  • Monitored Switched (MS) Series iPDU

  • Monitored per Outlet (MPO) Series iPDU

  • Monitored and Switched per Outlet (MSPO) Series iPDU


SmartZone G5 iPDUs interface with the Panduit SmartZone Intelligent Software and Hardware Solutions and fit into all Panduit cabinets and all industry standard cabinets.
