Panduit: Game-Changing 4-In-1 Outlet G5 iPDU

October 11, 2023

In the realm of data centers, the constant challenge is not just about keeping up with the accelerating pace of technology but about anticipating future needs. One such area that calls for constant foresight is power distribution. It’s no longer just about delivering power, it’s about flexibility, scalability, efficiency, and future-proofing your operations. Enter the Panduit G5 Intelligent Power Distribution Unit (iPDU) featuring 4-in-1 outlets – a game-changer designed to revolutionize power distribution in data centers.

The Power Challenge in Data Centers

As the nerve center of IT operations, data centers house an array of devices – servers, storage systems, networking equipment, and more.  Each of these devices requires a constant, uninterrupted power supply to function optimally. The challenge arises when data centers grow or evolve, requiring more outlets to accommodate new equipment. It’s a struggle between scalability, outlet density, and infrastructure capabilities, leading to a frantic search for more outlets.

The traditional approach of adding more PDUs is a temporary fix at best, leading to increased complexity, higher costs, and management issues. It’s like trying to fix a highway traffic problem by adding more lanes – eventually, you run out of space. What’s needed is a smarter, more efficient solution.

Introducing the 4-in-1 outlet G5 iPDU

The G5 iPDU is an advanced, high-capacity power distribution unit that’s set to redefine how data centers manage power. It’s not just an iPDU; it’s a four-in-one solution, offering a level of flexibility and scalability that’s unheard of in conventional PDUs. Its unique design features combination outlets that can function as C13/C15/C19/C21 outlets, giving your data center an unparalleled level of connection flexibility.

This means the iPDU can adapt to a wide range of devices and power needs without requiring multiple PDUs. Its single receptacle can power a variety of equipment, ensuring connection types are available when needed most.

The Power of High-Density Outlets

A standout feature of the iPDU is its high outlet density. Each unit features combination outlets, providing a dense power supply solution that keeps pace with the most demanding data center environments. This high-density approach delivers an efficient power distribution platform that supports more equipment than ever before from a single PDU.

By incorporating this high outlet density, the iPDU allows you to do more with less. Instead of multiplying PDUs as your data center expands, you can rely on the high-density outlet design of the iPDU to cater to your expanding power needs. This is power scalability at its best, allowing for streamlined operations and efficient use of space.

Future-Proofing Power Distribution

One of the most remarkable advantages of the G5 iPDU is its future-proof design. The 4-in-1 combination outlets ensure that whatever device you add to your data center, this iPDU can handle it. No more worrying about whether the PDU will support the new server you just purchased or if it will cater to the latest networking equipment. The G5 iPDU is ready for it all.

Moreover, the unit is equipped with dual-locking power cords, eliminating accidental disconnects, and ensuring uninterrupted power supply. And with the ability to operate at full load at 60° C, it’s ready to perform even in the most challenging environments.


In a world where data center efficiency and scalability are paramount, the G5 4-in-1 iPDU represents a significant leap forward. Its high-density combination outlets offer unparalleled flexibility and scalability, enabling data center managers to maximize their infrastructure’s capabilities while keeping pace with technological advances.

Rather than multiplying PDUs as your data center grows, the G5 iPDU allows you to scale power distribution efficiently, reducing complexity, saving space, and paving the way for future growth. It’s not just about powering your equipment today—it’s about being ready for the devices of tomorrow.
