The RPDU is designed to provide power to a row of racks (up to 14 racks). The input power connection consists of one input circuit. The output distribution circuits are plug and play receptacles located on the back panel. The user will save time and reduce cost by eliminating running conduit and receptacles to each individual rack. The internal load distribution breakers correspond to receptacles mounted on the back panel. In addition, the RPDU has many extra circuits as spares for external use. (Such as in conventional PDUs)

Example for RPDU cost savings:

This example shows MTTI’s variable estimate of power distribution cost savings to 32 - 48 racks in an average raised floor computer room.

Installation of Conventional PDU MTTI RPDU
Description Estimated Average Cost MTTI Average cost
Input Wiring $ 1,000- 4,000 $ 1,000 - 3,000
Output Wiring of 32- 48 circuits,
raised floor IT room
$ 12,000 to 17,000 $ 0.00, None
Output wiring labor $ 2,000 - $4,000 $ 0.00, user plug and play
Project completion time 5-9 Days One day
Total $ 15,000 – 25,000 $ 1,000 – 3,000
Total Savings  $ 14,000 – $22,000

Please note that additional savings such as unit price, real estate, air conditioning, fire suppression, flexibility, relocation, and project completion time is not calculated in this comparison.Note: All figures and prices are an example only and are based on MTTI’s average variable estimates of general electrical wiring and products. Prices may vary per project, supplier, site location or equipment brand.
