The PX4 Rack PDU - The Intersection of Innovation and Proven Performance

Posted on June 21, 2023 by Gento

The PX4 Rack PDU is a state-of-the-art solution designed to help data center professionals solve today’s power needs and anticipate tomorrow’s rack power distribution challenges. With the industry's ever-changing landscape, it's essential to have rack power distribution equipment that can adapt to the changing environment. The PX4 offers a range of industry-proven hardware and outlet technology features that make it a perfect tool for maximizing space utilization, improving operational excellence, and ensuring security

According to a recent survey by the Uptime Institute, many data centers are struggling with space constraints for new IT deployments. The PX4's High Density Outlet Technology addresses this challenge by providing the most outlets per PDU form factor to support high-density rack requirements, enabling data center professionals the ability to connect more devices to the PDU. 

The PX4 Rack PDU also features the patented Cx Outlet, a hybrid IEC C13 and C19 outlet, making connecting various equipment to the PX4 easier without worrying about the outlet type. The Cx Outlet helps ensure ultimate density and flexibility while reducing the complexity and costs of purchasing new PDUs when future equipment updates occur. 

The 45-degree angled infeed of the PX4 makes connecting the power cord to the unit easier, reducing strain on the cord and improving its longevity. The alternating branch power distribution of the PX4 provides a more balanced load on the power circuits, improving efficiency and reducing the risk of overloading a particular circuit. 

The PX4's RamLock Mechanical Locking feature adds an extra layer of security, ensuring that equipment stays connected to the PDU’s outlet by preventing accidental disconnection —protecting valuable data and equipment, reducing downtime, and improving productivity. 

The PX4 Rack PDU is a powerful, forward-thinking tool that propels businesses to outpace the pace of progress and stay ahead of the curve. If you're looking to improve the efficiency of your IT infrastructure, reduce downtime in your data center, or protect your valuable equipment and data, the PX4 Rack PDU is the ideal solution.
