Efficient DC Power Distribution in Data Centres

The consistent use of direct current in a data centre makes sense. Losses can be massively reduced. On the power side, the IEC has defined the frame with TS 62735-1. Now it is the turn of the device side. AC and DC are supposed to coexist in a transition phase.

The telecom and data industries are powerful drivers for making direct current viable again. The approach of supplying a data centre with DC voltage is obvious. If the servers are already working with direct current, it would only be sensible to process it in the same way throughout. From the network to the chip. The DC architecture contains significantly fewer components which makes it cheaper and less susceptible to faults. The elimination of various transformations and conversions also results in significantly improved energy efficiency.

The availability of pure DC components is still in its very beginning. It would be helpful if parts of the existing infrastructure could continue to be used. DC connectors differ technically in some points from their AC counterparts. Especially with regard to the dangers of mechanical separation under load.

Safe power supply has top priority. Whether it is AC or DC. Mechanically coded connector systems are used to ensure that the power supply in the device is tapped correctly. Only the hybrid device plug accepts both AC and DC sockets.

With the GP21 plug connector and the GS21 socket-outlet, SCHURTER launches the world’s first UL approved IEC TS 62735-1 standardized DC coupler system designed to enable efficient DC power distribution in data centre power distribution strips and UPS.
