Schneider Electric, Microsoft Unveil Universal Rack Power Distribution Solution based on the Open Compute Project

ANDOVER, MA -- Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today announced a partnering with Microsoft on the design of a Universal Rack Power Distribution Unit (UPDU). The co-engineered solution offers a single UPDU to simplify rack power system procurement, inventory management and deployment processes for data center operators managing large, hyperscale and colocation data centers.

The UPDU's flexible input connector allows data center operators to use a single power distribution unit across their rack system architecture, which eliminates the need to employ an array of remote power distribution units (rPDUs) with differing densities and geographies. The UPDU also supports a wide range of input power ratings including: 16A 3Ph 400V, 30A 3Ph 208V, 32A 3Ph 400V, 50A 3Ph 208V.
