Customers can now easily understand the cost savings of deploying Secure Array™ IP consolidation technology thanks to a new online estimator introduced by Chatsworth Products (CPI).
The cost of instrumenting cabinets in the data center can be significantly high because of the number of additional network ports and IP addresses needed to network sensors. Traditional networks typically require one connection for each PDU, environmental appliance and electronic access control system per cabinet.
Secure Array, an award-winning eConnect feature, reduces costs and decreases installation time by allowing customers to link up to 32 eConnect PDUs under a single IP address using standard Ethernet cables. Additional features include outlet grouping, data logging, threshold alarms and PDU cloning. Adding a second IP address provides failover capability, which allows functioning PDUs to continue communicating if a PDU in the array loses connectivity.
