Zonit Data Center Power Distribution System - zPDS

Zonit zLock™


























You’d do anything to protect your business and provide the electrical power needed…shouldn’t you have reliable power distribution system with integrated phase-balancing, stabilize over 90% of your cabling infrastructure, or compliment busway systems with automatic phase balancing...?

Failure rates? “ONE” zPDU™ has had a warranty call in eight years!

The Zonit Data Center Power Distribution System (zPDU™) delivers an ultra-reliable, turnkey power distribution system for modern high-availability mission-critical data centers. It simplifies the distribution, phase balancing and delivery of power between data center Power Distribution Units (PDUs) and end-user racks, cages and servers. It enables quick and easy deployment and re-deployment of data center resources while eliminating the source of errors that result in downtime and unbalanced use of power phases.

Technically the Zonit zPDU System offers unique patented functionality, high power density, complete power redundancy and unmatched reliability backed by a 25 year warranty.

Automatic Phase Balancing
The zPDU family is the only power distribution solution in the industry that has patented power phase load balancing and addresses the problem of neutral harmonic currents (NEMA reference: NFPA 70 NEC, Article 400-5). Ensures optimum load balance, lowers site electrical cost, full utilization of site PDU’s, and faster device installation and equipment upgrades.

WHIP & Cord Tangle Eliminated
The zPDU significantly reduces wiring and cordage from the power panels, to PDU, to within the rack/cabinet.

  • Branch circuit wiring is reduced up to 80%
  • Saves up to 40% of PDU breaker space
  • Better airflow resulting from fewer power panel-to-rack WHIPS and fewer cords within the cabinet.

Interoperability With Busways, EMT Conduit, and Raceways
The zPDU works well with all commonly used power distribution methods, such as traditional EMT conduit, raceways and busway systems. Click here for more detail on how the zPDU enhances these power delivery methods and reduces the total cost of ownership for any of them. It balances three-phase power delivery from any of these sources and reduces the domain of failure when branch circuits are overloaded. It also enables unique patent pending build-out methods using pre-fabricated components that can save up to 50% of the electrical build-out cost when building or renovating a data center.

The Zonit Data Center Power Distribution System eliminates the ongoing cost of changes to the power distribution system which industry studies show can be over $200 per rack per year. The savings for even small to medium data centers can be over 1/2 million dollars during a 20 year lifecycle.

The zPDU has been in the market over six years and is used by organizations such as Eastman Kodak, Desert Reseach Institute and Colorado State University.

The zPDU provides:

  • Build-as-you-go
  • 25 year warranty
  • 180 Amps
  • Redundancy
  • 3 Phase load balancing & phase balancing
  • Streamlined Power Planning and activation of circuits on-the-fly
  • Wiring WHIP changes are greatly reduced

The zPDU features a dual-feed, 208-vold, 30-amp, WYE-configured 3-phase unit (21,600 watt capacity) and separately sold 3-phase vertical PDU/power strips. The PDU’s are designed power strip supplies twenty (20) 120-volt single-phase recepticals.
