Power Solutions

Power SolutionsPower inside the enclosure has grown from a simple strip, to the hub of communication for contents and environmental communication inside the enclosure.  Great Lakes partners with major manufacturers of Power Distribution Units (PDUs) to bring the most complete solutions to our customers.

Functionality Of Power Products Can Include The Following:

  • Basic Power Strip
  • PDU Metered
  • PDU Metered and Outlet Switched
  • Outlet Metered
  • Outlet Metered and Outlet Switched

Form factors are either vertical or horizontal for all functionalities

There Are A Variety Of Input Plugs Ranging In Current, Phase, And Voltage With The Most Common Options Including:

  • L6-30
  • L21-30
  • IEC C20
  • IEC Splashproof / Watertight
  • California Style

Each PDU Can Vary In Output Receptacles, With A Number Of Different Combinations Of Quantities, Some Even Capable Of Being Changed In The Field:

  • 5-20R
  • IEC C13
  • IEC C19

Every intelligent PDU has a monitoring device that allows the PDU to be connected to the network. Not only does this allow for remote monitoring or management of the PDU from anywhere on the network, but the same device can often times be used for serial port communication, sensors, displays, and ports used to daisy chain multiple PDUs together. Building Automation Systems (BAS) and Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solutions utilize a variety of sensors that tie into these PDUs. Temperature, humidity and dew point sensors are often integrated directly into the enclosure. Other sensors often incorporated into the system include door contact, smoke alarms/detectors, VDCM, flood, current transducer, leak detection, and power failure. There are even wireless sensors that can communicate back to a central wireless gateway, pre-installed and ready for configuration upon delivery.
