The 1U C13/C19 IntelliCompak is a monitored, horizontal PDU with 6 X IEC C19 and 8 x IEC C13 sockets on the front and rear of the unit. It is ideal for use in 600mm cabinets where there is no space at the sides for zero-U vertical PDUs. The socket arrangement is optimised for 2 IntelliCompaks to provide A & B feeds to two 6-PSU blade chassis using the C19 outlets and for associated ancilliary equipment to use the C13 outlets.
MPL uses a daisy-chained industrial RS485 data connection to connect up to 256 IntelliCompaks to a central IntelliPoller unit that acts as both an interface to an IP network and a power supply for the monitoring logic in the IntelliCompak. This design both minimises the number of IP connections required for monitoring and ensures that if the power fails in a cabinet that the logic board remains powered and able to report the failure.
