SOMERSET, N.J., June 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Raritan® — a brand of Legrand, and a leading provider of intelligent data center management and rack power distribution solutions — announced today that it has been recognized by industry publications CRN® and Consulting-Specifying Engineer.
Product-of-the-Year Award Finalist
Editors of Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine have named Raritan's new PX® intelligent rack power distribution unit a "Product of the Year Award" finalist in the electrical category. The magazine will publish the winners in the September issue.
Raritan's PX intelligent PDU (iPDU) was selected for its innovative features. The PX offers more than reliable power distribution -- it's a launch pad for real-time remote power and environmental monitoring, and data center infrastructure management. The new iX7 onboard controller provides the PX more compute and memory power to support new applications and to gather and analyze data on: electricity used by IT equipment, available power capacity in cabinets and data centers, and environmental health. The new iPDU also provides more sensing and infrastructure data collection points to support all kinds of workloads in today's data centers and to spot problems early.
