The Advantages of an Uncluttered Rack, Part I

Posted by RJ Tee on Feb 15, 2018 2:52:00 PM

Alternating phase power distribution technology from Server Tech is one of my favorite subjects. It has benefits that extend well beyond the electrical distribution world. In fact, it is one of the few power products whose secondary benefits meet and sometimes exceed the fundamental purpose of a three-phase distribution product. I discussed it in a previous post.

We’ve extolled the virtues of single phase 60A power distribution to the rack.  But there are still may situations in which a three phase deployment is required to power the needs of racks that consume 12kW or more.  In other words, situations that begin with ‘high’ and end with ‘density.’

Load Balancing Made Simple

Whether you’re deploying fully populated or partially filled racks, keeping loads balanced is important from both a power and networking perspective. But getting loads balanced can be difficult. You could try to plug in the same number of devices per branch, but that assumes all equipment is pulling the same load. Or you could install the equipment; power up your PDU and pull up branch load information; then go unplug equipment, find the right length of power cord, and re-plug in the equipment to rebalance the loads.
