Light Pipes for Status Display

Light Pipes for Status Display

SCHURTER improves upon a classic product: the new 6600-5 series IEC outlets are available with integrated light pipes. An intelligent, space and cost-saving solution for PDUs used in data centers and other multi-distributed power applications.

PDUs often use LEDs mounted in between outlets to display a current status. The high packing density of servers in modern data centers demands the same of power distribution units. With SCHURTER's appliance outlet, the integrated light pipes provide space and assembly cost savings over conventional strip designs. Service technicians are able to clearly see which systems are working properly, or respond to required maintenance adjustments. The triggering of the LEDs is freely configurable, wherein each state can be clearly and independently represented. An outlet could, for example, signal an outage with a red LED, or a critical power consumption pattern with a yellow LED.
