PowerMax

Power Distribution Units

Siemon's PowerMax line of PDUs range from basic and metered for simple and cost-effective power distribution, to a full line of intelligent PDUs that deliver real time power information with varying degrees of intelligent functionality for valuable troubleshooting, control and monitoring of power usage, capacity and environmental conditions.

With an industry-leading accuracy of ±1%, an operating elevation range of 0 to 3000m (0 to 9842 ft.) and highly robust construction with soldered connections for maximum reliability, Siemon's line of PowerMax Intelligent PDUs are ideal for reducing energy costs, managing and optimizing power capacity, and identifying and preventing potential problems to ensure uptime and improve power usage effectiveness (PUE). All PowerMax PDUs include a 3-year warranty and come in both horizontal and vertical styles. Horizontal PDUs mount easily in any standard EIA 19-inch rack, while vertical PDUs are ideal for mounting within a cabinet's Zero-U space, such as the Zero-U space offered with Siemon's VersaPOD® and V800™ cabinets.

Metered PDUs

pdu-monitored

Metered PDUs provide local visual monitoring capability through a built-in LED meter that displays real-time power data. Metered PDUs are a cost-effective alternative for providing more intelligence than basic PDUs.
