2x 6-fold switched and metered PDU

Expert Power Control 8221-1 for more operational security and energy efficiency in 19-inch installations
  • Fewer and shorter failures of IT and AV installations
  • Detect AV and IT problems at an early stage: Proactive power and environment monitoring
  • Increased energy efficiency (Green IT and AV): Reduction of electricity costs and CO2 emissions
  • Integrate anywhere: Quickly and easily integrate anywhere with API interface: REST API, https, SNMP, Telnet and MQTT
  • Fix AV and IT problems quickly and effectively: Reboot remotely, directly on the device or with an automatic restart thanks to integrated watchdog
Massive time and cost savings through plug-and-play drivers from our technology partners
Key Features
  • Event and schedule controlled switching
  • Total switching power: 7500 W
  • Precise current metering of up to 9 units and residual current
  • 2 connectors for plug-and-play sensors
  • Fast and easy installation
  • NTP function can be activated
  • Integrated overvoltage protection type 3
Switching function
  • 2 independent banks of 6 power ports each (dual-circuit)
  • Each power port can be switched via HTTP/S, Telnet, SSH, SNMP or command line interface, as well as via serial interface
  • Programmable on/off sequences for remote reboots (Remote Reboot)
  • Power ports can be switched when preset sensor thresholds are exceeded
  • Self-healing function thanks to 12-channel watchdog: The power ports can be assigned its own Watchdog (ICMP/TCP), which initiates an automatic restart if necessary
  • Pairwise switching of power ports possible, e.g. power port 1 of bank 1 simultaneously with power port 1 of bank 2
  • Switching state and switch-on delay up to 9999 seconds (166 minutes) individually adjustable for each output port after power failure
  • Current peaks due to increased inrush currents are automatically prevented by sequential switch-on with a latency of 1 second

Demo

Metering function
  • Power consumption metering (kwH) with 2 energy counters: one counter counts consistently, the other counter is resettable
  • Metering of current (A), voltage (V), phase angle, power factor, frequency (Hz), active power (W), apparent power (VA) and reactive power (VAr)
  • 2 connectors for combined plug-and-play sensors (temperature, humidity and air pressure)
Security
  • Integrated type 3 overvoltage protection prevents damage to the device and connected loads (L-N, L/N-PE), status retrievable via network
  • Long-life High-Inrush Relays prevent welding of relay contacts during inrush current peaks
  • 2 independant mains connections at 230 V for the same or different phases
  • Generation of status messages (e-mail, syslog and SNMP traps)
  • Encrypted e-mails (SSL, STARTTLS)
  • Access protection by IP access control
  • Encrypted communication through SSH
  • Secure Login via SSL
  • Beeper for audible alarm when sensor limits are exceeded/deceeded
Operation
  • Per bank an easy-to-read LED display for displaying total current, IP address and sensor values
  • Firmware update via Ethernet during operation (no restart required)
  • Simple and flexible configuration via web browser, Windows or Linux program
  • Dynamic assignment of an IP address via DHCP or manual assignment of static IP address
  • Convenient control on the go via free GUDE Control+ app (Android and iOS)

Description

The Expert Power Control 8221-1 is a network-compatible power distribution unit with 12 power ports on the back. The connected loads can be switched on or off as required and the total power consumption can be monitored, making the PDU a must-have in AV and IT installations, as well as small data centers.

The power ports of the Expert Power Control 8221-1 are combined into two independent banks with 6 power ports each. The PDU has two integrated energy counters per bank, whereas one counter is resettable. The metering of a wide range of electrical variables enables the user to identify and exploit power-saving potential in the IT environment for every connected individual load. In addition, the user receives warning messages when fault currents occur (residual current measurement type A). Two separate supply lines can be used to switch 32 A or 7500 W via the device (dual circuit). The power ports can be switched separately via a web interface, via the serial interface, via SNMP or via the button on the device. SNMPv3, SSL and IPv6 as well as Telnet, Radius and Modbus TCP are supported.

Thanks to sensor connectors, environment temperature, humidity and air pressure can be monitored with plug-&-play sensors. The connected loads can be switched by the IP watchdog when preset sensor or current thresholds are exceeded.
