Switched PDUs

switched pdu  

Geist switched PDUs provide hands-on control, even from miles away. While monitored PDUs can display information remotely, only switched PDUs offer the ability to use that data and disable individual power outlets. Manage critical issues that arise with the click of a few buttons on a smart phone or computer. Disable problem equipment by cutting power to specific outlets, reboot equipment remotely by cycling power, and save time and money by avoiding sending technicians to the source of the issue.


 

 

Outlet Status Feedback


Geist’s proprietary feature enables real-time feedback of each individual outlets status. Through the power strip GUI you receive a warning if the actual status of the outlets is different than the one being shown. Visual confirmation of a relay’s failure to change state is given so you can be sure that the outlets are indeed On or Off.
 


User-Friendly Web Interface


Geist’s Monitored PDU’s help users keep an eye on remote conditions from a secure web interface. The web interface provides an overview of your environment using real time data. All measurements are logged allowing users to collect data for trending and capacity management. Monitored PDU’s have flexible access rights and security settings with up to three access account levels, as well as LDAP support for easy integration into existing user access management procedures. It offers secure access through the web and supports HTTP and HTTPS protocols.
 


Customizable Alarms with Escalation


Geist’s Monitored PDU’s can trigger escalating alarms if temperatures, or other environmental variables fall outside a specified parameter. Receive SNMP, email to text message alert notifications when user-adjustable thresholds are exceeded.
 


Environmental Monitoring


Monitoring PDUs have two environmental sensor ports with the ability to track climate information: temperature, airflow, humidity, dew point and additional environmental variables. This data is available through any web browser and is SNMP and JSON API compatible for easy tracking of critical data, without the use of any external software. It is simple to capture all the data, analyze trends and resolve issues immediately. Pair with Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software for a comprehensive, single-pane-of-glass view of your entire data center infrastructure.
 


Colored Chassis

[Colored Chassis for Power Distribution Units] Geist offers colored chassis options to help data center personnel easily identify the input feed of each PDU, helping create proper load balancing of attached equipment and minimizing error that could lead to accidental downtime.





 


Switched Outlet Level Monitoring

LIVE DEMO - coming soon!


While monitored PDUs display information remotely, only switched PDUs have the ability to control individual power outlets. In addition to its switching capabilities, the outlet level monitoring PDUs track granular power consumption data of all equipment. The Max Group Amps (MGA) feature offers an extra level of protection, preventing circuit overload by letting users set the threshold for maximum number of amps.

Simply capture the data needed to analyze trends and resolve issues before they lead to costly downtime. With a click of a few buttons users can disable problem equipment by cutting power to specific outlets, rebooting equipment remotely, and avoiding the need to send technicians to resolve issues onsite, saving time and money. With flexible access rights and security settings, create and manage user accounts to promptly handle issues when they arise.


 


Switched Unit Level Monitoring

LIVE DEMO - coming soon!



With a click of a few buttons users can disable problem equipment by cutting power to specific outlets, rebooting equipment remotely, and avoiding the need to send technicians to resolve issue onsite, saving time and money. Create and manage user accounts to promptly handle issues when they arrise with flexible access rights.

Switched PDUs provide a comprehensive view of power usage in a data center. The monitoring display offers quick access to the PDUs power readings: Current, Volts, Watts, Power Factor and kWh’s. By monitoring these critical variables, data center managers can evaluate energy-usage trends and ensure maximum uptime.
