Five key elements to selecting a PDU

Five key elements to selecting a PDU
Electricity is like air and water, something that we have all come to take for granted. But there is now clear evidence that we cannot assume our energy sources can be forever guaranteed. Data centres rely on a stable electricity supply 24/7, but our future supply is far from assured.  By Mark Guest, Rittal’s Product Manager for IT Power Distribution

Controlling industrial robots with edge-based 5G network

Controlling industrial robots with edge-based 5G network
It has been estimated that, by next year, 3.1 million industrial robots will be deployed in factories around the world. Connectivity, controlling and maintenance operations pose major challenges for manufacturing companies. Local, private 5G networks in combination with edge computing permit secure, near real time communication networks that can be run where production takes place.

Make improvements now to be ready for summer

Make improvements now to be ready for summer
The temperatures may be feeling quite mild, but even if the thermometer hasn’t yet regularly dropped below zero, you’re probably no longer hearing the alarms on your cooling units. While this is likely to mean you’re spending less time maintaining overheating panels, it would be a mistake to forget about climate control.  By Karl Lycett, Rittal UK’s Product Manager for Climate Control

Cable management & future rack developments

Cable management & future rack developments
There are a number of key areas for IT and data centre managers to consider when it comes to planning future rack developments. One of the most critical is deciding the precise configuration of the internal components. This typically underpins the success of the whole project, especially when IT racks are not installed in a standardised data centre environment.
