RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) -  Power Distribution Inc. (PDI), a leading provider of mission critical power distribution equipment for data centers, today announced the addition of the 400 amp Powerwave Bus System™ to meet strict requirements of international data centers, industrial and commercial power applications. Available worldwide, the Powerwave Bus System is a flexible, reliable overhead power distribution system that eliminates energy waste while maximizing data center server floor space. All Powerwave Bus Systems are available with international voltages and breaker configurations.

"Traditional busway systems applied to the data center have not been designed to handle today's critical power loads," said John Day, executive vice president of sales for PDI. "PDI's Powerwave Bus System optimizes both power and space in today's mission critical data center installations. The simple, flexible and efficient design helps our customers minimize costs and increase productivity, while meeting sustainability goals." 

The Powerwave Bus System addresses all requirements of the dense power applications faced by today's data center managers who must conserve energy and space while guaranteeing high uptime. Features include:

  • PowerWave Toughrail Techology™: UL and ETL tested at up to 200% of rating, this system is built to last.
  • Total Flexibility: The Powerwave Bus System can be reconfigured and customized to any data center environment. Move it, re-use it, add to it, or change direction -- all this without any waste, and all with minimal disruption.
  • Energy Efficiency: Heat is an electrical systems killer. The Powerwave Bus System is designed to reduce heat concentration so heat is more easily distributed throughout with no hot spots.
  • Green Design: The Powerwave Bus System is made of 99% recyclable, environment-friendly components, which helps customers meet their environmental sustainability goals in a cost-effective way.
  • PDI Q - Integrated Communications Management: The Powerwave system offers an integrated communications solution through the patented Branch Circuit Monitoring System, allowing for instantaneous reporting and management of a myriad of power quality parameters, including amperage, voltage, power factor and kWH.

PDI will present information about the Powerwave Bus System at the London Datacenter Dynamics show on November 9-10, 2010. For more information, please visit:
