Geist power monitoring provides site manager with a comprehensive view of power usage in a data center. Local and remote power monitoring display options offer quick access to the PDU's current, volts, real power, apparent power, power factor, and kilowatt hours. By monitoring these critical variables, data center managers can evaluate energy usage trends and ensure maximum uptime.
 

Upgradeable Unit Level Power Monitoring
[Upgradeable Unit Level Monitoring]


The Geist Upgradeable adapts to your business well into the future. Simply choose the functionality that suits your requirements today with the flexibility to install technology as needs evolve.

To establish this extraordinary upgrade path, Geist incorporated an Interchangeable Monitoring Device (IMD) into its robust PDU design. Geist’s rugged power strips last for years and with the new IMD users can install the latest technology without replacing the power strip. The hot-swappable IMD can be changed in a few simple steps without interrupting power to critical servers.

With remote power monitoring, data center managers can receive notifications of current threshold breach, preventing unnecessary downtime. Data from the unit can be accessed through any Web browser, without requiring external software. Data can be integrated into Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) systems for remote notification, and the intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) allows managers to quickly access pertinent information.

Upgradeable Local/Remote Power Monitoring

upgradeable local/remote power monitoring IMD-02XV (Vertical) or IMD-02XV (Horizontal) The IMD device delivers a comprehensive view of power usage in a data center. It is a hot-swappable replacement or upgrade solution allowing new technology to be applied as it is developed. The IMD offers on-board and web power monitoring display options with quick access to the unit’s current, volts, real power, apparent power, power factor and kilowatt hours.

Upgradeable Local/Remote Power Monitoring Remote Sensing

Upgradeable Local/Remote Power Monitoring Remote Sensing IMD-02EV (Vertical) or IMD-02EH (Horizontal) The IMD-02EV Interchangeable Monitoring Device Remote Sensing delivers a comprehensive view of power usage and environmental conditions in a data center. To be used with the modular design of the Upgradeable PDU, it is a hot-swappable replacement or upgrade solution allowing new technology to be applied as it is developed. The unit’s environmental sensor port gives data center managers the ability to track critical climate variables like temperature, airflow, humidity and dew point with the use of a Geist remote sensor.

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.

Input Power Monitoring 1% Accuracy (ANSI and IEC standards)

Allows data center managers to accurately reconcile power usage.

High Temperature Grade

60°C working ambient variants for high temperature environments.

Fault-Tolerant Daisy Chaining

Simplifies intelligent PDU connectivity and ensures data is reported even with a break in the chain.

Low Profile Breakers

Low Profile Breakers Geist’s low profile breakers reduce the PDU depth by over 40% compared to traditional breakers. The slimmer design protects against electrical overloads and allows the PDUs to be easily installed in data center cabinets with limited space. Geist offers low profile breakers as a standard feature on select basic and intelligent PDU configurations. Customers may choose to incorporate the smaller breaker design on applicable custom PDU orders.

 

U-Lock Receptacles

U-Lock Receptacles Geist offers IEC C13 and C19 receptacles with an integrated locking feature built within the receptacle housing. The locking mechanism is protected against vibration and external elements that can easily dislodge external locking clips or guides. This self-contained locking mechanism works with any standard IEC plug. Locking receptacles come standard on some units and are available for custom orders.

 

Colored Chassis

Colored Chassis 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.

Monitored PDUs FAQs

Geist's FAQ section aims to answer specific questions related to this product offering. If you need further support, please contact Tech Support directly.


What type of readings does the Monitored Upgradeable PDU provide?
 

The Monitored Upgradeable PDU provides Phase (X, Y, Z) Monitoring (A, V, VA, kWh, PF) Phase Power measurements compliant with ANSI C12.1 and IEC 62053-21 at 1% Accuracy Class requirements, Circuit/Breaker Monitoring (A), Circuit/Breaker Current measurements (independently tested and verified at 2% accuracy).


Can the upgrade process take place with the PDU powered?
 

Yes, the PDU power can remain on during the removal and/or installation of the Interchangeable Monitoring Device.


What is the benefit to monitoring at the outlet level?
 

Monitoring at the outlet level allows you to pinpoint system-critical failures and take preventative measures. For example, a gradual rise in a server’s current draw over time might indicate a failing power supply. Outlet level monitoring can also track where power is being used for departmentalized power billing in large companies.


Can I monitor at the input or circuit level too?


Yes, the Outlet Level Power Monitoring units will also monitor and display the input/circuit power readings for the PDU.


What is the accuracy rating of the power readings at the outlet?
 

Outlet Power Measurements Compliant with ANSI C12.1 and IEC 62053-21 at 1% Accuracy Class Requirements.


How many and what type of environmental sensors can be connected?
 

Up to 16 external sensors can be connected to the Outlet Level Power Monitoring unit. These sensors can include: Temperature, Temp/Humidity, Flood, Smoke, Door Position and more.


Do I have the option to purchase PDUs in various colors?
 

Yes, Geist offers its power distribution units in various colors to:

  • Identify input feed A/B, for racks with multiple connected PDUs
  • Identify which phase/circuit a single phase PDU is connected to
