Marway power management with Ethernet switching and monitoring.

Optima RCM Networked PDUs

The Optima RCM series of products are a pre-designed range of Ethernet® networked PDUs for single-phase and three-phase applications in various enclosure forms. We’ve selected several of the most commonly requested features from our custom products, and packaged them into standardized product lines. Then we added the most commonly requested network capabilities such as power monitoring and remote outlet switching over a variety of protocols. Below are some highlights of the RCM software capabilities, and the various series:

  • Remote control of outlets (manual and scripted)
  • Inlet current and voltage monitoring
  • Event alerts for startup, user login, outlet state change, EPO, power setpoint excursion, and configuration changes (via SNMP, email, SMS)
  • HTTP and HTTPS for web browser access
  • Telnet and SSH for command line access
  • SNMP monitoring, control, and alerts
  • RESTful API over HTTP/S to script outlet automation
  • Multiple users with independent login credentials
  • On-board activity log (SNTP time stamps)
  • Inlet power monitoring and outlet switching models
  • Outlet switching only models

820 Series

1U Single Phase

The 820 Series 1U single-phase PDUs consolidate the most commonly requested 1U features and options into an array of over 60 standard models.

  • 120 Vac, 200–240 Vac, or 100–240 Vac 1Φ.
  • 12 A, 16 A, and 24 A continuous duty ratings (15 A, 20 A, 30 A max).
  • 5-15R, 5-20R, or high-tension C13 outlets (1 on front, 8 on back).
  • Main power circuit breaker, indicator, and surge suppression included in all models.
  • Optional EPO and EMI filter package.

833 Series

3U Three Phase

For higher power requirements, we have the 833 Series 3U three-phase PDUs which provide the space needed for twist-lock connectors and individually breakered circuits.

  • All models are 120/208 Vac 3Φ wye, 24/30 A, with an L21-30 inlet.
  • Standard main power circuit breaker, phase power indicators, surge suppression, EMI filtering, and remote EPO control.
  • Options for location of the inlet on the front or rear panel and a variety of outlets (5-20, L5-20, L5-30, L6-20, L6-30, L21-30).

829/839 Series

0U Single/Three Phase

When space is at a premium, the vertically-mounted 829/839 Series 0U models are installed at the back of the rack without using any of the traditional rack-mount spaces.

  • Single-phase in 120 Vac, 200–240 Vac, or 100–240 Vac.
  • Three-phase in 120/208 Vac wye.
  • 12 A, 16 A, and 24 A continuous duty ratings (15 A, 20 A, 30 A max).
  • Full-rack and short-rack models.
  • Outlet types including C13/C19 combinations, 5-20R, and 5-15R.

Custom Optima with RCM

The Ethernet-based remote control and monitoring technologies which power the standardized Optima RCM networked products are also available for custom Optima PDUs.

With customized Optima RCM products, there’s greater flexibility in the PDU itself, and in the mix of RCM capabilities. Visit the Custom PDUs for Industrial, Military, and OEM Applications page for more details on PDU customization. Specific to the RCM capabilities, the custom options include:

  • Inlet monitoring of current only (amps) vs. power monitoring (amps, volts, watts, and more).
  • Inlet monitoring without the LED display and keypad (leaves more room on the panel for breakers, indicators, and other features).
  • Multiple-circuit power monitoring (monitoring branches of up to 50 A, 240 Vac).
  • Up to 120 switched outlets in high capacity, large enclosures.
  • Switching of a variety of ac and dc voltages and currents by using RCM pilot relays to drive power-control contactors or specialty relays.
