Gateview Introduces SWITCHLOK Cords to Enable a Scalable Solution for Individual Outlet Control on POWERLOK PDUs

WAKE FOREST, N.C. – August 18, 2021Gateview Technologies, an industry-changing creator of advanced rack power distribution solutions for mission-critical applications, announces its innovative new SWITCHLOK cords that make it possible to add switching capability to individual outlets on the company’s Switched Ready™ PowerLok rack PDUs (rPDUs).

“Rather than purchasing bulky, expensive rPDUs that incorporate switched outlets within the rPDU, users can install SWITCHLOK cords as needed on only the outlets that require control. Depending on how many switched outlets the user needs, this can save money while maintaining the receptacle and power density of an unswitched rPDU for easy rack placement,” explained Frank DeLattre, Gateview’s Executive VP of Sales and Marketing. He continued, “This is one of the most innovative features added to an rPDU product in years. It allows PowerLOK to keep the high-density form factor for which it is known but also be a true cost saving, scalable solution to data center operators who wish to have control and monitoring capability at the individual receptacle level.”

Available in 5-foot lengths with either 16Amp IEC C13-C14 or 20Amp IEC C19-C20 plug types, SWITCHLOK cords can include either integrated metering or switching capabilities (or both) and can be added to PowerLok’s Switched Ready™ rPDUs at any time for a truly scalable solution that maintains the rPDU’s high receptacle density. The individual cords can be remotely managed with the PowerLok PDU interface which provides visibility and control for switched and monitored receptacle functions.

Made in the USA in an AS9100 aerospace standard facility, SWITCHLOK cords are TUV certified, listed by UL/CSA, conform to FCC Class A, and comply with RoHS requirements. They feature a 3-year warranty and are available now with prices starting at $49 and available for shipment at the start of Q4 2021.
