Raritan - Cabinet Distribution Units (CDU)


Power Distribution Units (PDU) / Cabinet Distribution Units (CDU)

Raritan’s power management solution provides highly accurate, detailed information about the power in your data center.

In data centers and IT labs everywhere, facilities are approaching operational capacity limits. Power resources are increasingly constrained. And the cost of energy is spiraling out of control.

You need to know how much power your operations are using. And how much more you have available to work with. And where you can improve efficiency to save money and continue to grow.

Raritan’s power management solution offers you the features and functionality to operate your data center or IT lab more intelligently.

Our solution consists of three major components:


The role of power and energy management in your data center or IT lab (4min)

intelligent rack PDUs (iPDUs), sensors
and power management software.

Raritan’s family of intelligent PDUs includes:
outlet metered/outlet switched
outlet metered,
unit metered PDUs, and
inline meters.

All of Raritan rack PDUs and inline meters offer you accurate power information with billing-grade, real-time kWh data, as well as current, voltage, active power and apparent power. They also come in the industry’s widest selection and configurations, so you can choose the model that perfectly meets your needs.

Raritan's environmental sensors track humidity, temperature, contact closure, air pressure and air flow. There are even sensors that track IT assets.

Our Power IQ® energy management software provides easy-to-use, real-time, accurate energy information. It offers vendor-agnostic centralized power monitoring, along with features like agentless, graceful OS shutdown, outlet control and thermal and energy analytics. It also provides kWh per rack usage and energy costs per customer, department or application, line loads for balancing capacities, rack inlet temperatures and even carbon footprint.

Together, this award-winning solution gives you the information you need to:

  • Assess how much power you’re using at a moment’s notice
  • Use the power you have more efficiently
  • Improve server uptime and reliability
  • Allow higher rack densities

Raritan’s IT Infrastructure Access and Control solution features one of today’s most comprehensive and secure product lines.

Today, your needs are as varied as the technologies you manage. Your data center access and management solution must be secure, cost effective and versatile. You need flexibility and ease-of-use, along with maximum responsiveness, efficiency and operations uptime. And you need a broad range of features to meet today’s management demands.

In short, you need Raritan’s IT Infrastructure Access and Control solution. It allows virtually any device that has a KVM or serial connection, or embedded technologies such as Dell® DRAC, HP® iLO and IBM® RSA, to be managed remotely down to the BIOS level for total control. And it enables you to work flawlessly with your stand-alone, blade and virtual servers, and serial-controlled network devices.

Because security is always a primary concern, our KVM and remote access management solution also provides you with many advanced technologies that go well beyond simple login ID and passwords. We’ve built LDAP, RADIUS and Active Directory® integration, FIPS 140-2–certified encryption and smart card/CAC support into many of our products, giving you secure access from anywhere in the world.

Data Center Infrastructure Management

Today's labs and data centers encompass a vast set of devices, technologies and applications. A typical environment may include:

  • Physical and virtual servers
  • Embedded service processors such as iLO, DRAC, RSA and IPMI
  • Network devices such as routers and switches
  • PDUs

To provide efficient and effective services and problem resolution, IT administrators need in-band and out-of-band access, power control and a variety of costly point solutions for different technologies, vendors and product generations. This means deploying convenient, fast and secure ways to locate, view, access and control all the devices in your server rooms and data centers.




dcTrack® is an all-in-one, easy-to-use solution that provides efficient data center infrastructure management throughout facilities, networks and IT. dcTrack enables you to maintain accurate, real-time views of your data center servers, blades, virtual servers, network devices, applications, data connections and power chains.

dcTrack also provides up-to-the-minute views of your center's power consumption, heat dissipation, raised floor space and rack elevations, allowing you to optimize your current operations, assets and infrastructure.




Intelligent Asset Tagging

With Raritan’s unique Asset Management Tags (AMTs) and Asset Management Sensors (AMSs), data center operators can now have an accurate, automated, real-time inventory of all IT assets and their locations, down to the 1U level. AMT and AMS can be combined with Raritan’s dcTrack® data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software which is designed to track assets, determine capacity in a number of areas and manage changes.
