Vertiv Introduces a New Remote Power Panel and a Busway System to Standardise, Simplify and Scale Data Centre Operations

These easy-to-install systems provide packaged power distribution that is compact and flexible enough to meet constantly changing demands

LONDON, United Kingdom, September 6, 2021/APO Group/ —

Vertiv (https://bit.ly/3tqIPuY)(NYSE: VRT), a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, today introduced two new power distribution systems to simplify data centre management and scalability. The Liebert® RXA remote power panel (https://bit.ly/38LEbxS ) (RPP) is a flexible and safe solution for high-density power applications in one of the industry’s smallest footprints, while the Liebert® MBX busway (https://bit.ly/3leOMrh) system allows reliable overhead power distribution in data centres of any size, leaving floorspace available for equipment. Both products are now available across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). 

Many data centres traditionally use purpose-built electrical power distribution systems to feed energy into the server racks. However, custom solutions require longer lead times and are not pre-certified by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), which could create complications when servicing.

A proven alternative to custom-made systems, in particular for high-density applications, is a standardised RPP, such as the new space-saving Liebert RXA, which can be flexibly placed in data centres, server rooms or network closets. Prebuilt and configured, certified and tested, the Liebert RXA provides out-of-the-box electrical distribution once connected to branch circuits, simplifying facility startup, expansion and overall management of larger data centre networks. The solution offers flexible features and multiple configuration options to accommodate different site needs and future growth, while optimizing floor space. In addition, this new generation of standardised RPPs provides embedded intelligent monitoring capabilities, and through Vertiv Liebert® DPM intelligent power monitoring and system control can respond faster to any load imbalances, increasing the availability of critical systems and preventing issues that could harm valuable server equipment and cause unplanned outages. Thanks to its innovative design, the Liebert RXA offers one of the industry’s  smallest footprints, while finger-safe features provide heightened safety for operators.

When floor space is simply not an option, the Liebert® MBX busway represents a versatile over-rack solution to provide reliable and scalable power distribution in any sized data centre, with the inherent benefit of also maximising cooling airflow. This premium modular busbar system offers a variety of capacity and connection options that support enhancements and adaptation with minimal outside support needed, allowing businesses to cost-effectively optimise and adapt power distribution infrastructure over time. The hot-swappable tap-off boxes and adaptive busbar maximise flexibility and availability with continuous power delivery to critical loads even during upgrades and layout changes. The light and robust aluminium busway track chassis is IP2X certified and IEC 61439-2 compliant, with integrated finger-safe capabilities and ground-first/break-last design to ensure maximum safety while servicing.

“With data centre space at a premium, the influx of more devices and the move to higher densities, there is increasing pressure being put on data centre power infrastructure to be safe, scalable and quick to deploy,” said Giovanni Zanei, senior director for Vertiv’s AC power global offering and EMEA AC power business leader. “These easy-to-install systems provide packaged power distribution that is compact and flexible enough to meet constantly changing demands. By deploying Vertiv’s power distribution systems, colocation providers and data centre managers can help ensure uptime thanks to high-quality equipment that is built and certified by a global manufacturer.”

Liebert RXA and Liebert MBX join Vertiv’s broad, industry-leading power distribution portfolio (https://bit.ly/3yHLq4E), which includes room-based power distribution units (PDUs) and Geist rack PDUs.
