Flexibly distribute power to racks

Blade_RPM_71273.jpg

With Eaton’s rack power module (RPM)

Partner the BladeUPS with an RPM to create a highly flexible, adaptable power delivery architecture at the rack level. The RPM delivers up to 36 kW of power in an organized manner to loads of various voltages, power cords and layouts.

The 3U RPM can be deployed in the same rack with the UPS and IT equipment; there’s no need for a dedicated infrastructure rack. The resulting architecture has fewer cables to manage, fewer distribution points to monitor and greater flexibility for IT personnel to make changes without an electrician.

Consider a Tier II data center with 42 racks at 5 kW per rack: the BladeUPS with RPM can meet power requirements with half the number of racks, 60 percent less rack space, 45 percent less cabling and 41 percent less square footage than other vendors’ power distribution products that require dedicated racks.

These advantages make the BladeUPS with RPM ideal for distributed protection in small to mid-sized data centers, or to add zone protection in large data centers that have centralized UPSs.
