Influenced by this trend and Cyclades' reputation for dependability, our surge in sales of the AlterPath(TM) PM8 IPDUs further encouraged us to create these new models.
All AlterPath PM IPDUs have daisy-chaining capabilities, allowing users to increase capacity by connecting the control interfaces of several AlterPath PM units in series.
The IPDUs can be used as a power distribution and protection device with any terminal server, but when used with Cyclades console servers, they deliver easier out-of-band management capabilities and faster problem solving by integrating console access and power control into one single interface.
With daisy-chaining capabilities to link several units, the IPDUs allow for increased scalability while preserving central-management functions by linking the control interfaces.

eBay -- which monitors data center energy and temperature with Raritan's iPDUs and sensors -- used Raritan's Wi-Fi solution to eliminate two Ethernet drops per cabinet, reducing network CAPEX and cost of Ethernet cabling installation and maintenance.
Our new Wi-Fi solution is designed to provide more flexibility and ease in deploying energy-monitoring iPDUs and sensors in racks, so that data centers can take advantage of DCIM capabilities to optimize data center performance," said David Wood, Director - Power Business Unit, Raritan.
Availability Available worldwide, the Raritan Wi-Fi kit - DPX2-WIFI-KIT - is supported by Raritan PX2 iPDUs and EMX Smart Rack Controller.
Monitoring High-Power Racks The intelligence in Raritan's PX iPDUs provides real-time monitoring of the data center environment to maintain health of IT equipment and the rack.
Raritan offers optional sensors -- which plug into iPDUs and don't require additional network connections -- to track temperature and humidity at the rack.
The three-phase iPDUs monitor the three lines and send alerts if the lines become unbalanced.
Power IQ collects a wide range of information from a variety of IT equipment -- including all IT equipment connected to Raritan iPDUs and third-party Ethernet-enabled PDUs, as well as routers and disk arrays connected to rack or floor UPSs.
