RENO, Nev., Jan. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Server Technology, experts in producing the highest quality rackmount power distribution units and power monitoring solutions, announced today the PDU Power Pivot™, a patent-pending new data center PDU feature with a 90 degree rotatable power cord.
"This is a huge leap forward in data center PDU innovation," said Brandon Ewing, president of Server Technology. "The PDU Power Pivot feature is a game changer for the data center industry. The flexibility that this innovation brings to the PDU market is remarkable – for installation and mounting options and for multiple racks and multiple facilities. We see data centers standardizing on the PDU Power Pivot feature going forward simply because of the flexibility and cost savings. This is a PDU that can adapt as a company grows or changes its data center," said Ewing.
The PDU Power Pivot is the latest in an almost 30-year history of power distribution innovation for Server Technology, a company well known as the inventor of the intelligent PDU. The PDU Power Pivot is unique in that instead of having a static power cord, it has a 90 degree rotatable cord that can be positioned in a variety of ways. "Whether your data center has a raised floor or an overhead busway or any other way to bring power to the rack, the PDU Power Pivot can rotate for optimal configuration. Plus it can install easily to support racks from multiple vendors," said Steve Hammond, product manager at Server Technology.
Secondary innovation in the PDU Power Pivot
The PDU Power Pivot also has an LED screen with an "auto-flip" display that actually inverts depending on the position of the PDU. "The auto-flip display works just like your Smartphone so the customer doesn't have to tilt their head to read what's on the PDU," said Hammond. "When you combine the auto-flip display with the PDU Power Pivot, you really have a data center PDU that you can use anywhere," added Hammond.
The PDU Power Pivot will be offered initially in four new products: three new 30-outlet PDUs in the basic, metered and smart PDU categories and one 24-outlet switched PDU, offering on, off and reboot capabilities.
