The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
8NM1U. Switched PDU
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
EAN/UPC code :
European Article Number (EAN) and Universal Product Code (UPC) are better known as the barcode on a product's packaging to uniquely identify a product in a shop or logistic process. One product data-sheet can have multiple barcodes depending on logistic variations such as packaging or country.
Category :
A power distribution unit (PDU) is a device with multiple outputs designed to distribute electric power, especially to racks of computers and networking equipment located within a data center.
power distribution units (PDUs)

High availability

Input Current monitoring of the connected equipment in the rack cabinet can significantly enhance- IT & network equipment uptime. Each Intelligent PDU includes a digital display indicator for local, real-time reading of the aggregate current used by the connected devices. NM (Network-Managed) versions add remote in-band or out-of-band supervision.

Setting up the alarm threshold of the PDU input current will provide a safety margin. This will dramatically reduce the risk of upstream protection tripping due to:
◗ Overload. For example, installation of new servers is routinely needed but they may exceed the rated power draw.
◗ Inrush current generated by simultaneous device start-up when installed in the same cabinet. Switched PDUs allow for sequencial start-up to prevent this.

Supervision and remote maintenance

70% of locked-up server issues are solved through a power reboot. Switched PDUs can achieve this task remotely to save time and money. MGE designed the Ampmeter PDU 12 NM 2U for dual power supply devices like blade servers. NM models provide 2 ports for connection of temperature/humidity sensors to simultaneously monitor the environment conditions at the bottom and top of the rack enclosure. Status, conditions and thresholds of NM versions can also be monitored and controlled from a web interface. These products can also be integrated with MGE Enterprise Power Manager supervision platform or any NMS by means of their SNMP protocol.

Safety and reliability

Safety of the PDU remote operation is ensured by:
◗ Encryption and authentication (SSL/SSH).
◗ Different administration levels allowing to lock some strategic outlets.
◗ "Out-of–band" administration to manage the PDU remotely even in case of a network failure.
◗ Cable lock system for inlet and outlets.

Easy installation
Based on the PDU model, mounting options include horizontal (1 or 2U) or vertical (0U, labelled as "V").
