For Optimized Energy Consumption
In order to reduce the energy costs of datacenters, it is necessary to set up performance indicators which allow real time monitoring of equipment consumption and, consequently, of overall consumption.
Overall Datacenter Consumption for All Power Usage Effectiveness Categories
This solution is used to measure the total energy consumed by the datacenter (in the technical room). The measurement of the consumption must be included in the TGBT (general low voltage switchboard), thus allowing to reduce the losses of the Uninterrupted Power Supply, the power consumed by the cold production and the consumption of the computer equipment.
ASI Consumption Downstream for a Category 0 or 1 Power Usage Effectiveness
Whether it is at the level of the divisional switchboards or the ASl, it is a question of measuring the energy consumed per phase to know the energy performance of the UPS despite the heterogeneity of the Information Technology equipment, In order to enable phase rebalancing maintenance, it is interesting to include measurement modules in the divisional electrical boards in the rooms, with a direct display of the intensities per phase. Also, through the internal electronic cards of the Uninterrupted Power Supply, it is possible to bring back the energy consumption data in order to calculate the Power Usage Effectiveness.
Overall Consumption of a Rack or a Server
It is a function of measuring the energy consumed by computer systems. This monitoring requires innovative solutions. To meet this specific need in data centers, Legrand offers: Power Distribution Unit (PDU) solutions, intelligent hybrid rack transfer switches and monitoring solutions, whether it be Branch Circuit Monitoring (BCM) or Datacenter Infrastructure Management monitoring.
