Polar PDU Local Features and Display

Polar PDU Local Features and Display

A centrally located LCD screen displays critical data such as voltage, current, power, power factor, line input, and alarm notifications. Initial deployment of the PDUs is made seamless by immediate availability of data via the LCD screen for IP setup and load balancing. The LCD’s text rotation feature allows vertical PDUs to be installed with input cords at the top or bottom of cabinets.

1. Proprietary auxiliary ports for use with Cabinet Access Control.

2. Temperature and humidity monitoring ports for use with optional environmental probes. When in use, temperature and humidity settings are displayed on the LCD screen.

3. Network connection on Monitored and Switched models can be accessed remotely to monitor and control power usage using a web browser.

4. USB port for firmware imports.

5. Serial ports for linking up to 32 PDUs. Once connected, all PDUs with the Secure Link are automatically discovered by the primary unit.

Key Features of Polar PDUs

Key Features of Polar PDUs

Secure Link
Secure Link consolidation technology reduces costs and decreases installation time by allowing you to link up to 32 PDUs under a single IP address using standard Ethernet cables. Enjoy features such as outlet grouping, data logging, threshold alarms, and PDU cloning. Adding a second IP address provides failover capability, which allows functioning PDUs to continue communicating if a PDU in the array loses connectivity.

High Ambient Temperature Rating
Designed to withstand the heat loads of any vertical exhaust duct or hot aisle containment environment and allows full implementation of the newest ASHRAE recommendations. Perfect for installation in high-density application cabinets, all Polar PDUs are optimized for use in ambient air temperatures up to 149°F (65°C) at the input power rating (kW), ensuring that they will perform reliably in any hot aisle environment. In addition, Polar PDUs feature a low-profile design that does not block airflow.

Locking Outlets
Polar PDUs with IEC outlets come standard with locking outlets. This feature fastens straight equipment power cords to the PDU without the need for proprietary accessories, allowing you to save on additional accessory costs.

UL Listings/Circuit Protection
All PDUs are UL® 60950 listed and CE marked. They utilize100% rated, slim-profile hydraulic magnetic breakers to minimize nuisance tripping due to temperature variations and minor overloads.

Cabinet Access Control with Polar PDUs

Cabinet Access Control with Polar PDUs

Polar PDU Cabinet Access Control provides an easy-to-use and economical networked electronic lock solution for data center cabinets. Integration with Polar Power Distribution Unites (PDUs) removes the need to power and network the locks separately. Use a single network connection to deliver power, environmental monitoring, and access control.

All PDUs with auxiliary ports (manufactured after March 2017) support Cabinet Access Control. This allows Polar PDUs to provide a networked locking solution for cabinets. Users can remotely control and monitor cabinet access and keep a log for security requirements. One network connection can support up to 16 cabinets or 32 locks.


Key Features

  • Electronic swing handle with integrated sensors for lock and latch status, monitoring and alarm functions
  • Power for lock operation delivered through Polar PDU
  • Remote unlock capability
  • User-configurable unlock time delay
  • High-security lock with mechanical key override
  • Reader recognizes existing employee 125kHz or 13.56 MHz RFID cards
  • Bi-color LED (blue/magenta) to indicate lock and handle status
  • Event logging for auditing purposes, regulatory compliance
  • Integration with LDAP and Radius for added security
  • High temperature rating supports use in hot aisle environments
  • Must be used with Polar PDUs that have auxiliary 1 and 2 ports (PDUs manufactured after March 2017)

Rack Hygiene – Stop the Madness!

Rack Hygiene – Stop the Madness!

We’ve all heard of personal hygiene, and perhaps you’ve heard of mental hygiene, but what about rack hygiene? Please don’t look this up in a dictionary it will only confuse you. The word hygiene is now associated with data center cabinets or racks; which is a good thing. Why? Because the word hygiene makes people think of practices that maintain health and prevents disease. The word cleanliness also comes to mind. We all want clean bodies and minds. What about your data center racks?

Think about it this way… What happens to your mental state when you must make a cable change and the cable management system looks like a bowl of spaghetti? How’s your mental health now? Is it possible that your thoughts are moving to the dark side, unclean? Would you like to meet the guy in purchasing that saved the company $200.00 per cabinet who has no clue about the time lost in network cable mining?

Stop the madness! Rack hygiene is a must for every data center. Saving a few dollars on cabinets without cable management systems is nothing short of crazy.

The time wasted on unmanaged cable during the life of the cabinets will easily outweigh the additional costs for cable management.

What we’ve learned over the years is that asking technicians to mastermind a cable management program without the proper tools is like going into battle with a slingshot instead of a rifle.

My mom use to say in her lilting voice, “A place for everything and everything in its place.” Mom was borrowing an expression that came from the 1800s that has been attributed to many sources. My favorite is the quote from Masterman Ready, or the Wreck of the Pacific in 1842 that uses the expression in a nautical context “In a well-conducted man-of-war every thing is in its place, and there is a place for every thing”.

Boats don’t have much room, so its imperative to stow everything is such a way that it can be easily found and ready for use.

The same can be said for cabinets, there is no room for clutter. A properly organized cabinet goes a long way in new equipment deployment, as well as tracking down outages.

The point we want to make is that rack hygiene and cable management begins during the purchasing phase of the racks and the cabinets. Not all cable management systems are created equal, nor for the same purpose. Here are some important variables to consider:

• Vertical cable managers
• Horizontal cabling systems
• Backbone cable installations
• Copper
• Fiber
• Maintenance holes
• Bonding & grounding
• Support facilities such as raceways, cable trays holes coring, slot and sleeves
• Fastener types
• Wireless systems

Take the time to design a cabinet that makes cable hygiene easy. Without it your technician’s mental health will be anything but clean!
