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. 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.

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.

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.

Smart Cable Models

Smart Power Cables support the full range of IEC, NEMA, specialized and regional connectors. There
are more than 50 standard models, and custom cables can be made on request.


S Cable

Single­-phase circuits from 10A to 32A
