Accurately captures energy information in real-time
Smart Power Cables deliver true plug-and-play power monitoring
Smart Power Cables revolutionize branch circuit monitoring. Other solutions can be costly to implement, complex to install and difficult to scale. Packet Power Smart Power Cables avoid these issues by incorporating metering in a power cord and accessing the energy usage data via a wireless network. Since the cables can be used with any device with a plug, there’s no need to uninstall existing equipment, and you can have one monitoring system that works across all your devices.
Smart Power Cable Benefits
Make any PDU a smart PDU
Why buy a smart PDU when it is faster and cheaper to make your existing PDU smart? To get your rack ready for a smart PDU, you need to remove the existing gear, run an Ethernet cable, allocate the switch port, and assign an IP address. The associated costs are often more than the cost of a Smart Power Cable before spending anything on the smart PDU itself.
With Packet Power smart power cables, you simply unplug the PDU, add the smart power cable and instantly begin monitoring.

When we say we make monitoring easy, we really mean it.
FEATURED CASE STUDY
Fujitsu U.K.'s innovative use of Smart Power Cables reduced monitoring costs by 35%
Packet Power's remote monitoring system is the smart way to monitor power and environmental conditions. Fujitsu was "wowed" by the simple installation, low cost and instant insights.
Grow Fast or Grow Slow
Even the most cost-effective monitoring solution can present a budget challenge. Smart Power Cables mitigate that by making it easy to grow your monitoring deployment over time. Simply start with the circuits that need monitoring the most and grow from there. There’s no need to tie up money monitoring circuits that are a low priority or aren’t even in use.
Monitoring that’s easy on IT
Monitoring networks can encompass thousands of devices and as part of the facility infrastructure must be secure. Smart Power Cables provide a solution that minimizes IT time by utilizing a selfforming and selfmanaging wireless network. And they maximize security by segregating monitoring units from primary data networks on to a proven and highly secure purposebuilt monitoring network.
