CUPERTINO, Calif. - April 5, 2024 - PRLog -- Power metering has become an important part of many businesses. To improve operational efficiency an insight into how power is being used within your facility is essential. In data centers, calculating PUE is impossible without accurate power metering. For a colocation data center facility, the ability to bill clients based on their individual power consumption is needed. Having data for individual circuits gives a granularity that enables analysis of power use at rack level.

Intelligent PDU's are an expensive solution, as are traditional power meters if required at each rack. Introducing the AKCP powerProbeX+ (PPX+) for power monitoring of up to 48 individual circuits. The PPX+ is based on the popular sensorProbeX+ (SPX+) device, so the user interface will be familiar to existing users. 48x current inputs connect to current transformers of an appropriate size for the circuit to be measured. Arranged in eight blocks of 6x inputs, each block can be assigned to one of three voltage pickups. This means if monitoring three phase power, you can bring in three voltages, one from each phase, and assign under software control which block of current inputs are using which voltage pickup.

The PPX+ is available in custom configurations from 6-48 current inputs in multiples of 6. Starting as low as $700 for the 6 channels including 6x 120 Amp CT's, it is a cost effective way to monitor individual circuits in your facility with billable grade accuracy.
