Tripp Lite's 120V 15A metered PDU system with Automatic Transfer Switching (ATS) is an 8 outlet PDU with a digital display to indicate total PDU power consumption in amps. Outlets are factory programmed for sequential turn-on at 250 milliscond intervals when the PDU is first energized to prevent inrush-related equipment interaction on startup. Installed web/network monitoring card enables remote power monitoring and control. Remotely displays status of input power, load capacity, and outlet power condition via secure network or web browser interface. Offers individual outlet control to power on, off, or cycle AC output to regain control of locked-up servers and other network devices. Load ramping and shedding provides programmable power management to any type of network configuration. Supports notification and logging of input power status, event notification, output power and PDU loading conditions. Supports 1U rackmount installation in a 2 or 4 post racks. Included are 8 NEMA 5-15R outlets and two 12 ft. 5-15P optional-use dual cords for auto-transfer switching (ATS) option.
Optional integrated ATS / Auto-Transfer Switch provides a redundant power option for networking and server applications with non-redundant internal power supplies. In ATS mode, the attached power cord serves as the PRIMARY input and the included detachable cable serves as the SECONDARY input to the ATS. The ATS will normally maintain continuous output to all outlets as derived from the primary input cable. If the primary power source becomes unstable or fails altogether in relation to the secondary, the ATS will switch over to the secondary power source until the primary input is restored and stable. Super-fast switchover between primary and secondary power sources occurs within 2-7 milliseconds. ATS functionality is supported by any two 120V AC power sources, regardless of phase angle, to offer support for a variety of advanced redundant power networking applications. Enables fault tolerant hot-swappable UPS protection when used with a single UPS and fully redundant UPS protection when each cord is connected to a separate UPS system. In a two-UPS environment, the primary input cable must be supported by a full time sine wave online UPS. Tripp Lite SmartOnline series is highly recommended for use as the primary UPS in a two-UPS application. ATS configurations utilizing separate mains circuits, backup generators and even separate utility power grid feeds are fully supported. On-board ATS processor constantly evaluates power quality on both input sources to prevent transfer to the secondary source when unavailable or of lower quality than the primary source. Front input LED's display primary or secondary power availability.
