Use New Tools to View Features, Select Right Product

ECONNECT-PDU-MAIN-RGB72.jpgWESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Feb. 4, 2014 – Chatsworth Products (CPI) recently expanded its eConnect® line of intelligent power distribution units (PDUs) to include high-density PDUs in 50A and 60A 208V that meet power loads of up to 17kW per PDU.

This new addition addresses the growing industrywide demand for High Performance Computing (HPC), virtualization and cloud computing. High-density eConnect PDUs with six built-in circuit breakers are also the answer to customers predicting two- to three-year power growth deploying blade servers, network switches and cabinets with over 30 servers.

  • PDU linking or IP consolidation up to 20 PDUs
