Power Distribution Best Practices

Vertiv provides leading power distribution solutions across the entire power path, from the floor to the rack. The trend for larger sites has been to adopt two stage distribution that better supports the growing number of circuits in a data center.

Power Distribution Best Practices

No Raised Floor? No Problem.

Just select the top-exit option. By placing the input and output conduit connections at the top of the unit, the top-exit Liebert PPC brings the benefits of high quality packaged power systems to non-raised floor applications. Plus, the unit retains the normal bottom output cable exit for easy relocation and expansion flexibility.

Ideal for slab data centers, off ice environments, laboratories, manufacturing technology, process control rooms, medical imaging suites and more.

Configurations for Large Deployments:

Meeting Demands for Capacity, Footprint, Flexibility and Cost

The Liebert PPC can be configured in various distribution configurations to meet specific application requirements for larger capacity demands. Each is optimized around key factors, such as footprint, flexibility, safety and scalability, while providing reliable, cost effective power distribution. These are usually applied using 300kVA systems and above most used in two stage distribution.

Meeting Demands for Capacity, Footprint, Flexibility and Cost

Large Liebert PPC Options

I-Line Panelboards
Using I-Line panelboards offers excellent power flexibility. Most of the time that added agility requires a relatively larger footprint and a higher cost.

Fixed Mounted Breakers
Projects driven by footprint and economics should consider fixed mounted distribution breakers. Vertiv offers several options that can save footprint and money over traditional solutions.

Narrow Profile
For an advanced, forward thinking configuration the Narrow Profile Liebert PPC uses a rotated transformer section to reduce the footprint significantly. From that configuration we can offer either fixed output breakers or our innovative compartmentalized isolated distribution system. Perfect for safe, “live” circuit installs and maintenance.
