Power distribution units difference

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Valentin Kozlov on 2019-07-25


Hi Team!

Could you point me if there some significant difference between power distribution objects in DCO?

Basically we have Generic PDU, Generic Power Panel, Generic Remote Distribution panel with 1-phase and 3-phase options.

is there some difference between them when DCO proceed power dependency?

May be each of them have unique features?

 

Or this different types was made only for user convenience and are the same from DCO point of view?

Hello Valentin.

Its my understanding most of the above power devices you asked about are provided for the customers convenience so that item names/types align with the equipment in their actual data center.

They are in general similar in capabilities. They all have breaker panels, support a single input feed and can distribute to multiple devices. One difference to note is that PDU's and Power Panels also give you the ability to specify an output voltage so pdu's and power panels can be configured as a step-up or step-down device from a voltage standpoint.

Remote distribution panel voltages are set based on the device which feeds them. Here's a sample power properties view for a three phase remote distribution panel.

where as a pdu/power panel allows the customer to define its input feed as well as its output power. Here's a sample power properties view for a pdu.

 

Also, given you are allowed to define the input voltage and breaker settings on devices like PDU's this means these devices can be the first device on a power path. A UPS does not have to be the first device when those settings are provided.

 

Regards
