ATEN launched a “green initiative,” releasing power distribution units, sensors and lightweight LCD consoles designed to increase data center energy efficiency. The company’s product suite includes NRGence, a line of PDUs and sensors, and the CL3000N, a lightweight LCD console, serving as a front-end console for KVM switches.
NRGence offers energy-saving efficiency and power management control by allowing IT managers to easily upgrade their IT resources. The sensors, used with the PDUs, let IT managers assess energy savings using a dynamic Rack Cooling Index and Return Temperature Index.
The CL3000N console saves up to 55 percent in power consumption and utilizes LED backlighting for its LCD flat panel instead of the cold cathode (CCFL) technology used in other LCD displays. The CL3000N’s offers a thinner panel, lower energy consumption and more efficient heat dissipation.
