Computer Cables

UL Listed Cables/Breakers

UL Listed Cables/Breakers
UL Listed Cables/Breakers are shielded in a flexible, steel conduit encased in a copper shield to prevent electrical noise (EMI) from other cables and equipment in your data center. By labeling each cable at each end, your site manager/contractor can easily and efficiently pick out how your computer equipment is cabled. Additionally, by color coordinating the cables, you can make the initial installation and future upgrades easier and more efficient.

Inverters

S4 Inverters

S4 Inverters
PDI’s inverters are the industry standard for telecom and critical environment power protection. At the heart of the S4 are scalable 3.5 kVA inverter power modules which can be stacked in a N+1 redundant configuration up to 21 kVA. This modular scalability makes the S4 ideal for overlay applications where future power growth is anticipated. All modules are packaged into a receiver cabinet allowing rapid and safe exchange of any component without interruption to the critical load.

S5 Inverters

S5 Inverters
PDI inverters are the industry standard inverter for critical environments in the telecom and data center industries. The PDI S5 uses high density circuitry to provide 1500 Watts of power into a slim 1U rack mountable enclosure. DC noise filtering circuits on the S5 practically eliminate ripple current (<30 dBNRC and less than 2mV psophometric), a by product of most inverters that can potentially damage even large DC battery banks. The S5 can be paralleled for capacity or redundancy using “plug and play” synchronization cables.
