Product information for the IBM 0U 24, 1U 9, and 1U 12 Active Energy Manager PDUs


Planned availability date:


The new IBM Active Energy Manager (AEM) power distribution units (PDU) make it quick and simple to deploy, protect, and manage your high availability IBM System x and BladeCenter rack environment.

IBM AEM PDUs come in both a space efficient power dense 1U design, with 9 IEC-320-C19 (16A) and 3 IEC-320-C13 (10A) or 12 IEC-320-C13 (10 A) receptacle models, and Zero U full rack form factors with 24 IEC-320-C13 receptacles. These models are equipped to meet the requirements of your most power-demanding and highest availability systems with single-phase 30A, 32A, 60A, 63A and three-phase 16 A, 30 A, 32 A and 60 A solutions available.

IBM AEM models also combine receptacle density with advanced intelligent power management capabilities that seamlessly integrates with IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager. IBM AEM PDU models move beyond monitoring solely the incoming power of the PDU, reaching down to each individual receptacle to monitor the status of your mission critical

When installed in a IBM System x and BladeCenter rack cabinet, AEM PDU Models are designed to collect energy usage information on attached rack-mount products, and report the information to IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager over an attached customer-provided LAN. Using AEM PDU Models and IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager, you can gain a more complete view of energy used within the datacenter.

Active Energy Manager is an extension to IBM Director and is designed to provide simplified management of power consumption across multiple IBM systems. A version of Active Energy Manager is available for IBM System x and BladeCenter systems. The Active Energy Manager offering has both no-charge (free) monitoring functions and optional chargeable (fee-based) management functions. Active Energy Manager monitoring functions are available at no charge. Monitoring functions include power trending, thermal trending and intelligent PDU support. Fee based Management functions include power capping and power savings mode.

IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager measures, monitors, and manages the energy management components built into IBM systems while enabling a cross-platform management solution. It also provides a source of energy management data that can be exploited by Tivoli enterprise solutions such as IBM Tivoli Monitoring and IBM Tivoli Usage and Accounting Manager.

IBM AEM PDUs also come with switched receptacles for additional intelligent power management capabilities. Switched receptacles provide on, off, reboot, off delayed, and reboot delayed functionality to allow for power sequencing and to help prevent unintended over loading. These units come with receptacle indicator lights to display status or in the Zero U three-phase models LED displays for intuitive at the rack load balancing.
