Following in the footsteps of numerous PowerPak designs EatonI is proud to release PowerPak 2, the most versatile and safest PDU on the market today. Designed and engineered to meet the exact needs of our clients, PowerPak 2 PDU brings with it a powerful combination of flexibility and modularity.

With hundreds of possible configurations, PowerPak 2 PDU is the smallest power distribution unit with true front access in today’s market. A patent pending 3D access window allows true front access (TFA) for service and maintenance of the transformer while offering panel board and/or sub-feed distribution in the main cabinet. PowerPak 2 offers up to a 400 kVA DOE 2016 transformer and incorporates compartmentalized design in order to isolate controls and high voltage components.

  • Five tier true front access (TFA)
    Five tier true front access (TFA) enables operation, maintenance and service from the front of the PDU maximizing safety.
  • Smallest foot-print in the industry
    The PDI PowerPak 2 PDU can accommodate up-to a 400kVA DOE2016 transformer while maintaining a true front access (TFA) main cabinet size of 42” width.
  • Up-to 400kVA DOE2016 transformer
    PDI PowerPak 2 offers DOE compliant transformers in sizes up to 400 kVA.
  • Front access infrared scanning
    A patent pending 3D access window and specialized transformer designs enable infrared scanning from the front of the PDU.
  • Flexible distribution options
    The PDI PowerPak 2 PDU offers multiple distribution panelboard and sub feed options in-cabinet and in optional side cars.
  • PDI WaveStar Infinity monitoring
    PDI WaveStar Infinity provides facilities and businesses with the most advanced power distribution equipment monitoring and metering solution to help them make prompt and informed decisions to support fault detection, energy management and tenant billing applications.


Five-tier True Front Access

Five-Tier True Front Access (TFA) maximizes operator safety, increases security and allows for maintenance and service from the front of the PDU. Each tier provides locked access to the PDU through secured software or keyed access.

Smallest footprint

The PowerPak 2 PDU can accommodate up-to a 400kVA DOE2016 high efficiency transformer while maintaining True Front Access (TFA) and a cabinet size of 40" deep by 42" width. This reduced footprint allows the operator to maximize space required for power transformation and distribution.

Power compartmentalization

In order to simplify maintenance and increase safety of operators, the PowerPak 2 PDU features isolated controls and high-voltage compartments within the main cabinet. Compartmentalized components include high voltage input breakers and panelboards as well as controls and logic printed circuit boards and displays associated with the WaveStar Branch Circuit Monitoring System (BCMS).

WaveStar intelligent power monitoring

PDI’s Branch Circuit Monitoring System (BCMS) allows for the pro-active management of power usage and availability ensuring maximum uptime and reliability. BCMS monitors server loads locally via a 7" touchscreen display or remotely by multiple open protocols including Modbus, SNMP and TCP/IP. Power data includes current, voltage, voltage L-L, L-N, kW, kVA, kVAR, kWH per panelboard.

Front access infrared scanning

IA patent pending 3D access window located in the bottom left-hand high-voltage compartment and specialized transformer designs enable infrared scanning from the front of the PDU. The combination of these features result in the smallest PDU footprint in the industry and maximize space utilization.

Up-to 400 kVA DOE 2016 transformer

On January 1st, 2016 the Department of Energy mandated that distribution transformers must meet a new, more stringent energy efficiency standard. PowerPak 2 supports this new standard and offers DOE-compliant transformers from 100 to 400 kVA.

  • Transformer sizes (kVA)
    400, 300, 225, 200, 150, 125, 100
  • K-factor rating
    Standard K13, optional K4, K9, K20
  • Temp rise
    150°C (standard), 115°C (optional)
  • 8-10x in-rush, 2.5–5% impedance
  • Winding
    Copper (standard), aluminium (optional)
  • Other options
    Quad Wye, delta zig zag, 208V primary, 600V primary adder

Flexible in-cabinet and side-car distribution options

The PowerPak 2 PDU is compatible with multiple panelboard and sub-feed breaker manufacturers and styles which allows you complete flexibility in distributing power. Single, inline and finger safe panelboards and sub-feed breakers are available in-cabinet and in optional front and side facing side-cars.

  • In cabinet and side-car distribution
