Product News

Unipower Corporation has announced a new series of rack-mount AC PDUs (Power Distribution Units) that will find wide applications in mission critical networks. The Vigilant Series are 1U high and designed for 19in. rack systems and capable of providing AC power distribution at the rack or system level.

Each Vigilant PDU is capable of providing local True RMS Current Metering with a front panel LED. Remote Total Power Monitoring is also provided using software included for this purpose.

In normal operation these PDUs provide distribution for up to 8 AC loads through IEC (230VAC nominal) or NEMA (120VAC nominal) connectors. Remote Power On/Off with sequencing can be user defined to sequence equipment turn-off and turn-on.

Other system features of the Vigilant PDUs are remote individual outlet control, user-definable alarm thresholds and the ability to set-up remote “Event Alerts” via E-mail or SNMP Alarm Traps as well as providing local audible alarm.

“These Smart PDUs provide capabilities needed in today’s sophisticated networks and allow our power customers the ability to one-stop shop for all their power needs,” said
