The benefits of intelligent rack PDUs are not limited to traditional IT and Data Centre installations. Cities and building design have evolved to become smarter, with intelligent infrastructure playing a vital role. Within new office and mixed-use buildings, including the spectacular high-rise towers under development in many cities, intelligent power strips can be found supporting professional Audio-Visual equipment, CCTV, Access Control, network infrastructure and lift control.
Rack Power Management
InfraPower Intelligent rack mounted Power Distribution Units (PDUs) can be found supporting professional Audio-Visual equipment installations around the world. As such installations can encompass high value equipment, consideration should be given to powering them with PDUs featuring individual socket fusing to provide an additional level of protection. Socket switching functionality would also enable equipment to be bought back online gradually and without overloading systems.
Horizontal rack PDUs with multiple socket configurations including UK, IEC and Schuko sockets to suit various equipment (as well as multiple sockets per individual power strip) are available from Austin Hughes. Intelligent PDUs including Switched Sockets and Monitored Strip available with Surge Protection.
IP Dongle required for remote management and provides IP remote access to the PDUs by a true network IP address chain. Only one network IP is required for up to 32 x enterprise level intelligent PDUs in a single daisy chain by Cat5/6 cable, significantly reducing the number of ethernet ports used in deployment. Features remote level and ID setting for cascaded Intelligent PDU’s. Austin Hughes InfraPower Intelligent rack PDUs are supplied with SNMP or FOC management software.

MiniBoot – Reboot & Monitor Your Device Over IP
MiniBoot provides a simple and easy way to reboot a hardware device remotely over IP when a complete restart is required. In addition to manual on/off, MiniBoot provides 3 kinds of auto outlet control: IP-Ping automatically detects a failed system for timely reboot, Outlet on/off by sensor condition, and Outlet on/off scheduling.
Enterprise Level IP Authentication via Active Directory (AD), Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAPv3 / LDAPS). Remote Access Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) protocol, or local credential database. Strong passwords and granular user/user group permissions. Power Monitoring via Network and Local Meter. Remote Management utilising the built-in Graphic User Interface (GUI) or via third party DCIM via SNMP V2 / V3. Users can try to recover the crashed device by remote reboot, reducing the need to send engineers to site, improving uptime and productivity.
Options include diversified inlets and outlets, sensors, plus a WIFI option.
Unlike traditional rack power strips – mounted inside server rack enclosures, the MiniBoots smaller form factor brings innovativeness in power distribution outside the rack. The MiniBoot is designed to meet the needs of a variety of industries in a variety of environments – Transportation (Air, Land and Sea), Broadcasting, Entertainment, Advertising, Manufacturing, Mining, Satellite, Defense, Education, Telecommunication, Finance & Banking, Commercial, and more.
