Has that predictive data that you’ve collected and are using changed how Eaton's partners do business?
It has in the large-scale data centers. We'll be developing those algorithms for some of the smaller solution providers. We could run a solution like that for a hospital tomorrow. It's not just large data centers.
PredictPulse could be sold through channel partners. We've even done a rollout to a large retailer where there's over 200 small retail stores that have the 9PX UPS, power strips, ePDUs, and PredictPulse, and a service agreement. They have critical loads. They don't want to go down. But it's not around the complexity of knowing six months before a failure. It's more about the fact that they have a store manager there, or a retail clerk, and if the infrastructure goes down, they don't want to lose a whole day's worth of sales … It's a managed service where the customer doesn't have to do anything. That's a solution provided by our partners.
What is ePDU?
Rack power distribution. That's our brand. We use "ePDU" to represent the difference between a floor-standing model vs. a rack-mounted power distribution strip.
