Next Generation Power Distribution

With AC power distribution being at the heart of any modern event, Swedish-based StageSmarts AB developed the smartPDU to provide a new level of exceptional functionality, intelligence, quality, reliability and safety.

It helps users to keep track of the load situation at any moment, protecting their connected equipment and crew and, when needed, assisting them in quickly diagnosing and sorting out problems.

For users' complete clarity and peace of mind, it provides simple and highly accurate real-time load monitoring at any time and from any location, of each individual circuit - either via status indicators on the unit itself, or remotely via any device with a web browser. Users can therefore identify a potential problem before the circuit breaker trips. Safety features include individual RCDs fitted to all outputs, to maximise electrical safety whilst also minimising the impact of any electrical fault. In addition, loss of neutral protection prevents costly damage to connected loads caused by over-voltages.

Other features include industrial grade magnetic circuit breakers for reliable operation even in the harshest weather conditions, and an 'off the shelf' standard design available in 36, 48 and 72 channel versions, which can be configured for a wide range of applications and connector preferences thanks to its easily swappable output modules.

The smartPDU received a PLASA Award for Innovation based on it offering "a simple time and space-saving power distribution solution that will be welcomed by many rental companies".

Magnetic hydraulic RCBO -

A better breaker

The smartPDU series uses magnetic hydraulic RCBOs on all outputs. Unlike the thermo magnetic breaker, which are used on most other power distribution systems, the magnetic hydraulic breaker holds its very precise specifications in a very wide temperature range. Due to its superior design it is also better at handling transients and complex loads, making it a better choice for the demanding stage and event markets. Combine this with individual earth leakage protection on each output and you are set to handle even the most complex power scenarios with ease.


Load monitoring -

Monitor all your currents and more

The smartPDU series gives you the ability to know what's going on in your system, so you can take the guesswork out of the equation. It gives you real time load monitoring on all channel outputs and comprehensive monitoring on total power consumption, efficiency, frequency, neutral currents and voltages. Keep an eye on show critical components, balance your load between phases, and stay on top of problems even before they can impact your show.


Modular outputs -

Adapt to your needs in minutes

Taking a new approach to the power distribution market, the smartPDU series let you customise your system over time instead of only at the time of purchase. All channel outputs are modular and give you the ability to adapt your output needs to any given situation, combine Socapex, Harting and patch outputs to your hearts and your customers' desire in minutes. Should you by accident break a connector, you can fix it in minutes and send only the broken bits to the repair shop, not the entire PDU.
