Contact us for availability


Dual-power Switched Power Control via IP, 32 outlets with LED input current displays, branch circuit protection and IP monitoring; high-density.

The Switched CDU 32V combines remote configuration and management with power distribution, power monitoring and environmental monitoring. Reboot a single or dual-power server with one command. Receive SNMP alerts when power or environmental conditions exceed thresholds. Assign users specific access rights to designated outlets or groups.

Only our Switched CDU products provide the flexibility needed for all data centers and remote sites; including support for 20-amp or 30-amp power input; 100-120V, 208-240V or European 230V configuration; UL 60950-1 branch circuit protection; SSL & SSH security; and SNMP-based input current monitoring. For cabinets with mid-density servers, this cabinet distribution unit delivers unparalleled remote management solutions.

Our Switched CDU also supports Enterprise View PDU Manager. This gives the engineer the ability to manage a large installation of Networked CDUs from one location, view and access up to 1,000 Switched CDUs from a single web interface.

20 or 30 Amp Power Input Support

20-amp power input support - IEC320/C20 power inlet receptacles supports any power cord with IEC320/C19 power connector (PTCORD-XX). 30-amp power input support provides hard-wired 10' cord and appropriate L5-30 or L6-30 plug type.

24-character Outlet Receptacles Names

Use the firmware interface (Web or serial) to edit individual outlet receptacles. Identify each receptacle with the device's serial number, ip address, asset allocation #, department or any other method to individually name outlets.

Add a Second Tower

Connect an Expansion Module to any Smart or Switched CDU to control two power input circuits and 32 managed outlets (individual or groups) - our exclusive strategy for managing dual power-supply servers.

Firmware Flash Upgradeable

Access new firmware updates via FTP for new firmware features and code releases. An update to the firmware does not affect the status of the power outlets.

HTTP/HTTPs Web Configuration & Control

Use the Sentry Web interface to configure each unit, including network settings, outlet naming & grouping, SNMP traps for environmental & power thresholds and firmware updates. Also use the Web interface to control individual or group outlets and monitor key values, including amperage load(s), temperature/humidity and other environmental conditions. SSL security provides a secure HTTPs connection.

Integrate Environmental Monitoring

The EMCU - Environmental Monitor integrates easily with the Power Tower XL, or other Sentry Remote Power Manager. Locate the EMCU in the equipment cabinet with a PTXL, link it to the PTXL and view temperature, humidity, water sensing and dry contact closures from the same PTXL interface you use to manage and monitor the power.

Integrated Temp/Humidity Probes

Two (2) RJ-style connectors located on the face panel of the PDU's enclosure provide support for two (2) Integrated Temperature & Humidity Probes with ten-foot (10') cables provide real-time measurements in the data center cabinet.


LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is a software protocol for enabling anyone to locate organizations, individuals, and other resources such as files and devices in a network, whether on the public Internet or on a corporate intranet. Sentry firmware code 5.3b and newer  includes support for LDAP v3 and is configurable to operate with any Directory Service. It has been tested with these Directory Services: Microsoft’s Active Directory, Novell’s eDirectory, OpenLDAP

Load Sense

Individual input current monitoring ("Load Sense") provides real-time power measurement of the load in amps on each power inlet, accessible via firmware interface.

Remote Power Control

Individual or group outlet remote power control to cycle power and reboot any selected server(s) or other network device(s).  Use TCP/IP (HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, Telnet, SNMP) or RS-232 to communicate with each Sentry and rectify locked-up network devices. Assign outlets to a group for control of dual-power supply servers and other gear with a single command.  Create an unlimited number of groups with any combination of outlets associated to each group. Reduce Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) of a failing server by controlling individual power outlet receptacles to reboot any selected server or other device.

RS-232 Control

Serial control via any device with a bi-directional serial port, including a PC, laptop, KVM switch, Console Port Access switch, or terminal server.

Secure Access - SSH or SSL Protection

Secure Shell (SSH), sometimes known as Secure Socket Shell, is a Unix-based command interface and protocol for securely getting access to a remote device.  Sentry supports SSHv2. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a commonly-used protocol for managing the security of a message transmission on the Internet. SSL is an integral part of most Web browsers (clients) and Web servers.  Sentry supports SSLv3/TLSv1.

SNMP Management & Event Notification

The Sentry family of products supports the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). This allows network management systems to use SNMP requests to retrieve information and control power for the individual outlets. The Sentry includes an SNMP v1 agent supporting standard MIB I and MIB II objects. A private enterprise MIB extension (Sentry3 MIB) is also supported to provide remote power control. SNMP traps can be generated for various events, including Input Current Load Thresholds (min & max), Temperature Thresholds (min & max), Humidity Thresholds (min & max), water indication, closed contacts (cabinet doors open/close), as well as notification of any time an outlet status is changed (on/off).

Zero U Enclosure

A vertical enclsoure that occupies Zero Vertical U of rack space in the equipment cabinet. It mounts on the back rails or in the cavitity space of the cabinet.
