Judges were impressed by the PDU’s power density, uptime, capacity planning, and remote power management capabilities as well as its versatility to meet the needs of any size data center, edge-compute locations, and dense IT cabinets, offering multiple innovative features combined into the smallest form factor.
For three consecutive years, Server Technology’s PDUs have been chosen by the DCS Awards judges as among the best power devices in the data center industry. This year, the PRO3X PDU takes center stage with unique features such as its 2-in-1 HDOT Cx outlets which standardize a single PDU for multiple applications due to its ability to act like a C13 or C19 outlet, its RamLock outlet retention mechanism, built to secure the broadest range of C14 and C20 plugs, and its firmware powered by the Xerus™ Technology Platform that delivers unsurpassed security and visibility into the power chain.
“Mission-critical IT connectivity needs are rapidly changing to hyper-converged facilities, artificial intelligence (AI), and ever-increasing rack densities with higher power requirements,” said Henry Hsu, VP of Strategy and Marketing for Legrand North America’s Data, Power & Control Division. “We are proud that our innovations are in lockstep with the industry’s connectivity needs and humbled that our family of solutions continue to be highlighted by DCS as the best in the market.”
