Power Distribution Equipment

 

Acquire Global Corporation implement higher voltage power distribution to the end equipment AC power supplies at an increasing rate. Bringing higher AC voltages to the data center rack equipment power supply modules will maximize device energy efficiency.

AC power supplied equipment will operate more efficiently using the highest supported voltage available.
Provisioning for increased power demand using minimal power feeds into the rack requires increased voltage, current, or both. Using an example of a rack with a power requirement for up to 17kW of continuous current redundant power, we can determine how many power feeds to the rack (and upstream Remote Power Panel circuit protection points) would be necessary based on the power delivery system parameters (voltage, amperage, and phase). Referencing the table below, we can see the higher the voltage and / or amperage, the greater the power availability using less conductors (power feeds into the rack).
