000U PDU for server rack U PDU for server rack

Current PDUs in production used only fill the need of basic power supply or other value added features like power monitoring , but they do not solve the issues on

-Cable management

-Mixed cable environment such as C19/C13

The cable management is a common issue across data centers no matter the density of servers mounted in rack. And current data centers always have mixed cable environment.

To resolve these two problems, this disclosure is intended to simply the cable management by changing the shape of PDU itself and changing the line cord.

The new type of 0U PDU is:

1. Side mounted to the rack,

2. 40U in height,

3. 40*2 power outlets, 2 power outlets per 1U,

4. with 40*2 C19/C13 power line cords,

5. 2 power sources supplied to the PDU, power outlets in each 1U are supplied by different 2 power sources

6. dedicate power switch to every 2 power outlets per 1U

The new type of 0U PDU should be mounted in the back of the rack. It provides flexible sockets on demand, and easy cable management capability.

The simple diagram shows the result after the rack mounted.

The new PDU designed with two 32A 3-phase input power sources for physically redundancy. Each input power sources supply the 40 outlets horizontally.

And there is a dedicated powe...
