Geist announces the launch of the Geist Upgradeable power strip. This innovative solution offers scalable monitoring features that evolve with the demands of a data center. The unit may be installed initially as a basic power strip and upgraded at a later point in time to add power monitoring capabilities. Alternatively, it can be purchased with intelligence already included.

To incorporate the upgradeability feature, Geist engineered an Interchangeable Monitoring Device (IMD) in its standard power strip design. The IMD is hot-swappable and can be changed out while maintaining power to critical servers. An industry-leading five year warranty accompanies both the power strip and the IMDs.

Geist Upgradeable power strips have been third party tested to ANSI and IEC standards confirming their power and voltage readings are accurate to 1%. They can be daisy chained using standard Ethernet protocol to minimize the usage of expensive switch ports. The units include an easy to read rotatable LED display, locking receptacles to protect against vibration and low profile breakers for installation in tight spaces.

Gordon Hutchison, Vice President of International Operations said, “Considerable thought has been put into the design of the new Geist Upgradeable range, and we know it offers a number of significant advantages to the data center manager: It allows a level of future proofing in that an “intelligent-ready” power strip can be installed at the outset, with the ability to upgrade later as needs of the data center evolve.”

Geist Upgradeable power strips are available in a wide range of standard offerings. In addition, custom configurations can be designed to meet customers’ specific requirements.
