Geist has announced the release of Geist GU2, its highly anticipated next generation of upgradeable rack PDUs. The Geist GU2 family establishes a robust power infrastructure foundation for mission-critical facilities and introduces an evolutionary design platform that simplifies upgrades to technology advances as business needs evolve. Geist GU2 is available immediately in all regions where Geist products are sold.

The new line of Geist intelligent, upgradeable rack PDUs improves the user experience by allowing customers to more easily adopt new technology by hot-swapping modules that update intelligence within previously installed rack PDUs. These updates can occur on the fly and without the need for downtime. This upgrade capability future-proofs critical power distribution infrastructure while simultaneously reducing the risk of product obsolescence or under-performing power components as data centers change. In combination with expanded power monitoring and control features, the highly flexible Geist GU2 family represents the highest value, lowest cost of ownership rack PDU on the market.

Geist GU2 rack PDUs are available in outlet-level monitored, switched and switched with outlet-level monitoring configurations, all of which can be customized. All models offer the following standard features: high-density outlet options, smart latching relays (switchable rack PDUs) which significantly reduce power consumption and increase fault tolerance, fault-tolerant daisy chaining, certified high-temperature grade (60 C), wireless options, a slimmer PDU profile, and visible light communication (VLC) technology, which enables the quick scan and tracking of power metrics from a mobile phone or tablet.

All Geist rack PDUs provide reliable, rack­mount (zero U), locking receptacle, single or three­-phase power distribution options and can be customized for specific requirements and configurations with the industry’s fastest design-to-delivery turnaround.
