PDI’s PowerWave 2 busway system with Quick Connect Tap Off Box represents the next generation of flexible data center power distribution for any mission-critical facility. Unlike more rigid overhead power busways, PowerWave 2 with Quick Connect Tap Off Box allows for:
 
  • Multi-range ampacity in 250 Amp, 400 Amp, and 800 Amp systems to fit a wide-range of mission-critical power loads.
  • Various mounting styles, oriented vertically or horizontally, to custom fit over rack or underfloor power distribution space constraints.
  • Superior safety with an aluminum housing that prevents any form of contact with live conductors during installation and removal of Tap Off Box units from live busrails.
  • Intelligent power monitoring with end-feed monitoring for proactive management of power usage and availability as well as an eye-level monitoring screen for local power data displays to alert potential issues.
 
 
“The time has come to rethink the way mission-critical power distribution is deployed and managed in data centers,” said Michael Condon, Global Product Manager, PDI. “No longer should the Tap Off Boxes on the overhead busways be difficult to install, dangerous to maintain and provide imprecise operational status. With the introduction of the Quick Connect Tap Off Box, PDI has effectively brought power distribution into the 21st Century with infra-red scanning windows to safely measure internal thermal signatures, smallest “Keep-Out” area in the industry and automatic latching.”
 
In addition, the Quick Connect Tap Off Box has been designed for lighter weight and faster and safer installation, with industry standard revenue grade monitoring accuracy and capabilities.
 
The Quick Connect Tap Off Box will be available for order Q4 2017.  To learn more about the unique features, drop by PDI Booth at #40 at Datacenter Dynamics Colo+Cloud.
