Burland Solutions, the specialist division of Aphel Limited- the UK & US

based designer and manufacturer of high quality power distribution systems, in

collaboration with their Indian partner, Fraser Techno Circuits, has launched

newly designed module at Connect 2004 in Chennai.

Company officials informed that With the ever increasing density of servers

that need to be accommodated within 19" enclosures, there is the subsequent

demand for greater power supply within the cabinet as well as greater numbers of

receptacles (power sockets) to cope with not only the number of servers, but

nowadays each server has two power input feeds.

All this has arisen with no space allocation for the power provision. Aphel

have been selling their HPDM module (flyer attached) in the UK and USA for some

months now satisfying a huge demand.

The unit is mounted within the vertical frame so takes up no horizontal

server space, the unit has two independent power supplies, each of which is

monitored with high visibility LED ammeters, and four banks of 12 IEC socket

outlets are pro-tected for overload or short circ-uit by a 16A MCB. As a result,

power load on each supply can be divided equally, hence the full load is evenly

distributed into two, and in the case of a power outage on either supply, the

servers will still draw power from the alternative source.
