In today’s high-tech world, we place a lot of demands on data centers. Not only must they be able to operate around the clock, but equipment increasingly has to comply with global configuration standards. Receptacles, plugs and connectors used in these centers must have the same level of dependability as they provide power around the world-all day, every day-for equipment, such as rack system PDUs, servers, UPS and data storage devices.

If you work in food processing, you already know that every inch of the plant needs to be regularly cleaned and sanitized—but it’s easy to forget about the power equipment. All power distribution components and systems require special measures to function well in washdown environments. Here are three to keep in mind:

The Suspended AMAXX builds on our traditional line of robust power distribution systems. It integrates all the electrical and mechanical features you’d expect to see, including overcurrent protection, various receptacle options and more. Watch our new video to learn more.

Depending on your application or your plant design, having an overhead power supply source comes in handy. Some facilities don’t have columns in the middle of the floor for routing and installation of electrical equipment. This can be for sanitary reasons, to minimize potential for contaminant harborage or to provide unobstructed views of the production areas.
