The SCHROFF RackPower platform is designed for broad customization to address customer requirements and may be easily configured. An intuitive online configurator is available to guide PDU specifiers through the configuration process. Users can easily select form factor dimensions, power input, connectors, functional elements and a wide range of country specific outlets, as well as flexible bottom or top power feed entry, single or three phase with outlet to circuit level switching, metering or combined switching and metering configurations.

RackPower’s RMS current meter includes a 2.8-in colour touch display that provides ultimate metering accuracy of +/- 1 percent and is field replaceable without service interruption. The modularity enables up to three different outlet types on a single PDU. Optional colour-coding of outlets and chassis provides visual separation of power chains to simplify installation. An optional dual power feed version combines two PDUs in one mechanical housing. To protect mission critical equipment from unplanned downtime, socket switching is controlled by latching relays to ensure ‘always on’ operational performance while supporting sequential start and remote power reboot.

IP connectivity hardware enables remote access and management of the RackPower PDUs. Up to 16 PDUs can be cascaded and shared over a single IP address to reduce the number of required data ports and network IP addresses. Users have the option to create energy reports with data provided by the free of charge RackPower Management Software, or through integration with a third party DCIM software.

nVent is the electrical and power spinoff of Pentair and includes the SCHROFF, RAYCHEM and HOFFMAN brands.
