Data Center Power: Server Technology Sheds Light on 'Revolutionary' New Product
Data center power monitoring leader Server Technology (News - Alert) has had a lot to share with the world recently – with its release of the Sentry Power Manager 5.0, its ability to create custom PDUs and brackets and its DCIM partnerships – but this week the company is spreading the word about its “revolutionary” new product, POPS Smart CSG-24VD/VY 50/60A 12xC13 & 12xC19 with PIPS.
“The CSG-24VD/VY combines our high-end power monitoring features with high amperage,” Brandon Siri, senior marketing representative for Server Technology, told TMCnet in a recent interview. “Our original Per Outlet Power Sensing technology (POPS) and Per Inlet Power Sensing (PIPS) technology are built into this product which supports 50 and 60 Amps. This means that you can deliver a huge amount of power while receiving the most granular rack-level power measurements on the market.”
“You’ll be able to view the power being delivered to cabinet, the total IT equipment load, and the individual device’s power draw,” he added. “This information can be used to make critical decisions regarding your facility and help calculate metrics like PUE.”
For over 25 years, Server Technology has provided the biggest companies in the world with data center power management solutions Server Technology is a global leader in power distribution products and power monitoring software.
Its most recent brand is the latest way the company is distinguishing itself as a market leader.
The CSG-24VD/VY is the first CDU to incorporate POPS/PIPS technology and high amperage (50/60A) along with the reliable always-on outlet state of the Smart CDU product family.
“We’ve seen lots of organizations, such as financial, healthcare and government organizations, requesting the POPS feature but with our Smart CDU technology,” said Siri. “We have previously launched a line of Switched POPS CDUs that allows for outlet ON (News - Alert)/OFF/REBOOT states. Many organizations can’t risk an outlet accidently being reset or powered down, and that’s why the Smart POPS CDU was developed.”
This Smart POPS/PIPS CDU provides reliable power distribution combined with local and remote power and environmental monitoring via IP. The network interface can be used to view power, temperature and humidity levels via Web browser, or receive SNMP-based alarms when conditions exceed defined thresholds.
Moreover, the power information per individual outlet includes: Current Load (A), Voltage (V), Power (W), Apparent Power(VA), Crest Factor, and Power Factor. Power information at the infeed level includes: current, voltage, power, apparent power, crest factor, reactance, power factor and accumulated energy. This information replaces branch circuit monitoring devices typically installed in the power distribution panel or remote power panel (RPP) with higher accuracy and lower cost monitoring of each circuit attached to the CDU.
“The unit has 12 C13 outlets as well as 12 C19 outlets as well as breakers,” Siri said. “Combine that with everything else that it offers and you are looking at a best of breed solution for someone using 50 or 60 Amps. It’s rich with features and functions. If you combine this CDU with our Sentry Power Manager (SPM) for global power monitoring and trending, you are looking at a comprehensive intelligent power monitoring solution fit for a state of the art data center.”
"We've developed the Smart POPS product family to meet the needs of data center managers who need individual device level power measurements with secure outlet power that is always on,” added Brandon Ewing, president of Server Technology. “Our POPS technology is the most accurate, granular, device level power monitoring available in the CDU market today.”
The CSG-24VD/VY with 50A or 60A, 3-Phase 208/240V Wye-Delta, with (12) C13 and (12) C19 outlets, Per Outlet Power Sensing (POPS) and Per Inlet Power Sensing (PIPS), is available either directly through Server Technology or one of its Channel Partners.

As the need to balance current and future IT requirements against resource consumption becomes more urgent, the data center industry increasingly views capacity planning as a way of achieving a critical component to planning a new build or retrofit. Data center capacity planning can be a complex undertaking with far-reaching strategic and operational implications. DCD Intelligence has therefore compiled this White Paper in order to share some industry insights and lessons on the practical steps that are needed to develop a successful power and capacity planning strategy.[Read More]
Server Technology had the recent opportunity, along with other partner companies, to participate in discussions across the globe with data center IT and facility managers as part of a road show seminar: Data Center Energy and Operational Efficiency.[Read More]
The demand for more power in the computer cabinet has led many data centers to upgrade to three phase power distribution. Proper three phase power distribution has traditionally meant dividing up power up into multiple branches within the rack PDU (Power Distribution Unit). In this paper we will explore the advantages of a new, less common approach to PDU design by means of alternating each phase on a per-receptacle basis instead of a per branch basis.[Read More]
Increasing powering and cooling demands within the data center have been the topics of choice for Data Center (DC) and Facility Managers for several years now. Increased power demands are a result of the need for more compute power and higher density devices have resulted. These high density installations include stacks and stacks of servers and the trend of implementing blade servers within these server "farms." Cooling problems are a direct result of the increased power demands based on the simple fact that more power increases the demand for cooling.[Read More]
