Monitoring of Power and Environmental


Chicago, IL (November 4, 2009)–Tripp Lite
has added seven new Monitored models to its
extensive line of network-grade Power
Distribution Units. These new Monitored PDUs
provide a network interface (RJ45 Ethernet)
for remote monitoring and remote condition
reporting of power and environmental
conditions via SNMP, Web or telnet. A digital
meter locally displays the connected
equipment load in amps, which eliminates
guesswork when installing new hardware. Two
horizontal and five vertical models are
available. Horizontal models are optimized
for 1U rackmount installation; vertical
models are optimized for 0U (vertical)
rackmount installation.

“Tripp Lite’s new Monitored PDUs ease the
task of remote power monitoring,” said Rich
Feldhaus, Tripp Lite Product Manager. “They
offer reliable power distribution plus the
ability to monitor power conditions
remotely–a critical capability for
applications that demand maximum uptime. By
warning of potential overloads before
critical circuit breakers become overloaded,
they help IT managers avoid situations that
can lead to costly system downtime.”
