Remote Power & Environmental Monitoring with Super Accurate Tracking. This PDU Family Has It!

Guest blog written by David Chetham-Strode, HP WW Product Manager


HP’s Remote Monitoring PDU family is ideal for IT and facility managers tasked with:

  • keeping a tight watch over energy consumption
  • managing space constraints
  • viewing rack temperature and humidity readings
  • providing highly accurate bill-back information for co-location services or departmental resource usage


In line with HP’s goal of making every aspect of the data center work for the customer, these PDUs are simple yet effective solutions which are easy to use and make a real impact on the bottom line.


HP Remote Monitoring PDUs feature billing-grade accuracy of 99 percent for precisely allocating data center expenses. The built-in remote capabilities simplify and allow for remote power monitoring and management of the PDU and individual load segments from anywhere on the network. Ranging from 2.8kVA to 22kVA, with available single and three-phase models, the HP PDUs come in a new slim profile design for easy maintenance activities in the rear of the rack.


An optional environmental sensor enables temperature and humidity readings in the rack environment. To reduce data center cooling costs, the HP Remote Monitoring PDUs can operate at temperatures to 60C. For additional cost savings, the ability to daisy chain two units from one IP address eliminates network connection expenses. We’ve even gotten rid of the need for extension bars and extra cables.


Did you know that the ProLiant CarePacks in the same rack cover all PDUs and Rack options? That’s a real benefit!
