Intelligent PDUs

Control up to 48 power outputs from one remote network port

When it comes to power management, control and monitoring are two of the most important issues facing systems administrators today. With many installations spread over different locations, the need for a simple, centralised control solution that can manage every aspect of performance, from controlling individual outputs to monitoring alerts has never been greater.

Our third generation of eMU Intelligent PDUs build on the success of their predecessors to not only offer an ergonomic web interface portal, but also now seamless integration with our IDS eco-system allowing both remote control and monitoring.

Up to 4 eMU units, either the single input eMU3 or the dual input auto-changeover eMU3ACO can be linked together and controlled from a single network port.

Key benefits

  • Power management for critical and remotely located equipment
  • Real-time monitoring and control via WAN/LAN, SNMP alarms
  • Effective power managment to help reduce overall costs
  • Suitable for the broadcast, digital signage, industrial, IT and data centre industries

Intelligent, expandable distribution - Our PDUs have an embedded web server for complete control

Our intuitive web interface provides quick and easy access to control and configuration facilities. Monitor the health of racks, see the status of every output and receive email alerts if pre-set limits are exceeded.

System status

At-a-glance system status. Monitor every output on every connected PDU. All PDUs are continuously polled for status. Configure individual PDUs and outputs. On ACO units, each input is monitored and the active input clearly displayed.

Network settings

Configure network interfaces including IP address, subnet mask, gateway and API port numbers. Set SMTP server and email addresses so that your systems admin can receive pre-set email alerts.

PDU Settings

Set master parameters for the PDU such as name, start-up sequences, enabling email alerts and temperature ranges. Send email alerts on the detection of a UPS GPI (on and off), fuse failure (and restore), and critical temperatures.

Output settings

Configure settings for each output such as name, load shedding, status and cycling. Shed load when UPS active, restore when GPI is removed. Control ACO inputs. Power up from the browser. Switch outputs on and off manually or set to cycle.

Hassle free energy management

Extendable rack-mount solutions that provide continuos real-time information about your system, while delivering a reliable power supply or instantaneous switching between primary and secondary power supplies. Designed for critical applications.

IDS integration

In addition to the eMU3 Web portal, use an IDS system to remotely control or monitor your eMU3s. Information from gathered from GPIs and environmental sensors connected to your eMU can be passed on to your IDS system for displaying as part of your IDS content management.

Likewise, use your IDS touchscreen within IDS system to control & monitor the individual ports on your remote eMUs as part of wider control system, along with, for example, controlling the DMX lighting and the motion parameters of your remote cameras.

Building on the success of our EMU2 range, we went to market and listened to the feedback from our diverse range of global clients. Resisting the temptation to reinvent the wheel, we took the already stable foundation of the EMU2 and added industry leading features to the new EMU3 range of power monitoring units.

Our new intelligent EMU3 are now available with Automatic Change Over (ACO). All units now come with an embedded web server that enables continuous remote control and monitoring. They can be daisy-chained to other EMU3 units to provide up to 48 outputs via a single IP connection.
