Increasing Data Center Efficiency by Using Improved High-density Power Distribution
North American server installations are uniquely inefficient because of multiple circuits, use of floor space and weight, and more. A new approach to power

amp connectors  For example, assume 20 amp circuits are provided to the load in either case. The power capacity for the 120 V line to neutral distribution method is calculated as (20 amps x 120 V x 3 = 7.2 kW), while the capacity for the 230 V line to neutral distribution method is calculated as (20 amps x 230 V x 3 = 13.8 kW). Given the same circuit current rating, the 230 V distribution provides 92% more power than the 120 V distribution. This increases the power density capability per rack without adding extra

But this is also changing. I had a back-to-the-future experience during a recent tour of Ford's first North American supplier park, scheduled to start production next year. Read More
