Increasing Data Center Efficiency by Using Improved High-density Power Distribution


North American server installations are uniquely inefficient because of multiple circuits, use of floor space and weight, and more. A new approach to power distribution for high-density server installations saves floor space, simplifies power cabling, saves capital cost, reduces weight, and increases electrical efficiency. Learn more about how this distribution architecture can provide you with numerous benefits.

server rack enclosure  Figure 1. High density server installations where racks can draw from 10 kW to 40 kW per rack place significant strains on this standard power distribution system. This increased rack power density is causing: Multiple branch circuits per rack, with corresponding breakers and cabling PDUs to become up to 30% of the floor space PDUs to become up to 30% of the floor weight loading More PDUs installed per IT rack, driving up capital costs However, these problems are unique to North America.
