Multiple output options are available that distribute 120V, 208V or 230V to rack mounted IT equipment, ranging from 1.8kW to 7.36kW. With greater accuracy of ±1 per cent, metered PDUs provide visual monitoring capability through a built-in LED meter that displays real time power data. All PowerMax PDUs are available in horizontal and vertical styles and feature a smooth powder coat finish and robust construction with soldered connections for maximum reliability. Horizontal PDUs mount easily in any standard 482.6mm rack, whilst vertical PDUs can easily be mounted within a cabinet’s vertical zero-U space.

The decision engine – ‘Cloud Intelligence’ – caters for technical and nontechnical visitors, ensuring visitors are able to find the information that meets their needs. The configuration tools separates technical users familiar with the technology landscape from those less knowledgeable, like procurement personnel tasked with researching technical solutions. It then guides these different visitors down paths customised to meet their requirements. Pulsant has recognised that buying behaviours in the corporate world are changing as a result of the way in which researchers and IT decision makers are consuming are information.
