Greening the Datacenter: Tectrol Announces Power-efficient 1800W Front End for Ethernet and VoIP Applications

In this era of more efficient energy use, the greening of the datacenter is the goal of many CIOs and large and small companies. Individual server deployment, where one server is responsible for a finite number of machines, is considered woefully inefficient. That’s why virtualization and, to a large extent, the cloud have both been attractive to users and companies alike. Administrators have other options for reducing costs, consolidating infrastructures, and maintaining more efficient power consumption.

That’s why the latest modules recently introduced by Tectrol are significant. The TFE-1800 series of 1800 watt Hot-Swap power modules are the newest additions to the high-density hot-swap/redundant package. The supply is designed to fit a wide range of standard applications, including networking equipment, telecommunications and industrial/test environments,  and can be modified or configured for deployment in "Customer Specific" applications.

For administrators and executives, maintaining a balanced outlook on the benefits of maintaining adequate power consumption levels is essential. Power impairments occur more often than is generally realized, from simple user/system issues to full-blown data center outages. For example, if a company’s power system is disabled, the ramifications can be widespread. The loss of critical business processes can cause impaired productivity, missed or delayed business transactions, and dissatisfied customers. All of these issues can place a heavy burden on having the best capabilities for powering a datacenter.

Established in 1968, TECTROL has earned a worldwide reputation for designing and manufacturing power supplies, power conversion products and power systems that support demanding requirements from 10 to 30,000 watts. The TFE-1800 supply features Universal AC input with Active Power Factor Correction; typical efficiency of 90 percent; Digital I2C Interface; analog status and control functions; fan-speed control; and secondary isolation for Power-Over-Ethernet and VoIP applications.

Unified Communications (News - Alert) (UC) are a set of programs, protocols and hardware (including VoIP) that allow users to contact each other using a range of different media platforms and systems at any given time. It brings together diverse communication devices, from video conferencing to telecommunications, to establish streamlined connectivity between users.

All of this requires the kind of efficient power infrastructure that will deliver always-on, stateless power capabilities while also delivering savings. To that end, Tectrol has earned a worldwide reputation for delivering reliable, cost-effective power solutions and providing outstanding customer service on a global basis.
