12-Port Power Over the NET™ (PDU) Discontinued
ALTUSEN PN5212 Power Over the NET™ is a Power Distribution Unit that offers outlet level control combined with remote access to give IT administrators the ability to power control devices attached to the unit from practically any location via a TCP/IP connection. With support for power status measurement, PN5212 enables administrators to monitor the current, voltage and power consumption of their IT equipment at the PDU level, minimizing the power cost of running their equipment; and ensuring high levels of system availability for server rooms of all sizes.

The PN5212 PDU is highly suitable for server rooms or data centers with high-density server deployments. It features a space-saving 0U design that allows it to be mounted vertically on the outside of the rack, resulting in a more efficient use of server room space, and the elimination of the usual cable clutter.

A measuring feature, coupled with a threshold alarm, keeps you informed of the operating status of all your attached equipment. Warning messages regarding triggered alarms can be sent via an SMTP server. IT administrators are able to easily and conveniently monitor and power control connected devices – remotely if necessary – by means of a browser-based UI, thereby minimizing maintenance costs and ensuring 24/7 reliability for their server room operations.

The PN5212 can be daisy-chained to manage even more devices, so your server room management can expand in step with your company's growth. For ease of management, when PDUs are deployed in conjunction with other ALTUSEN products*, administrators can access them all from the same user interface. When a PDU is integrated in a CC (Control Center Over the NET™) management software installation, the power outlet of an IT device can be associated with its KVM port and displayed on the same CC web page. This allows IT administrators to completely control an IT device from a single user interface.
