PXE Value Rack PDUs

PXE is a family of Intelligent Rack PDU’s for an entry level iPDU solution to gain more insight into power consumption and environment monitoring. With several off-the-shelf popular configurations to choose from, PXE is a reliable choice to start monitoring now.

PX Inline Meters

Raritan’s PX-3000 Series Inline Meters are a new line of intelligent inline power meters that easily add power, energy and rack environment data collection capabilities to stand-alone IT equipment and basic or dumb rack power distribution units (PDUs).

Rack Transfer Switches

Raritan’s hybrid rack transfer switches use electromechanical relays and silicon-controlled rectifiers (SCRs) to transfer a load between two sources. The result is performance and reliability that exceeds that of standard automatic transfer switches (ATS) at a lower price point than static transfer switches (STS).
