As data centers continue to surge in popularity, their energy needs are escalating as well. In fact, many large data centers require as much electricity as an entire city! According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, U.S. data centers guzzled down 91 billion kilowatt hours in 2013, and our annual consumption is projected to increase by 47 billion kilowatt-hours by this year. As one of the largest and fastest-growing consumers of electricity in the United States, data centers require reliable and efficient equipment. And Positronic is ready to assist engineers with dependable, economical, and modular connectors.

How Positronic Meets the Needs of Data Centers

Economical, Efficient Power Connectors

Companies operating massive data centers are always looking for ways to improve their efficiency while reducing costs. Even a minor improvement in equipment design can have major repercussions, producing energy and cost savings. So despite its small size, a power connector can have a valuable impact on a data center’s performance.

Data center power engineers know that they can rely on Positronic power connectors. Featuring the most versatile power/signal connectors on the market, the Scorpion series is a popular choice for data centers. These industrial connectors provide a lower cost per rack and lower cost per server, feature optimized power utilization, and are able to serve in an open standard.

 

Compliance with Safety Standards

When power connectors fail to meet safety standards, they threaten the functionality of the entire facility. Despite their small size, connectors can cause incidents that necessitate costly and time-intensive downtime. All Positronic power connectors meet applicable safety standards and provide a secure connection, ensuring reliable and consistent performance.

Changing with the Times

Data centers are constantly evolving and expanding to meet the needs of large, high-speed networks that require greater power consumption. To keep up with the ever-changing technology of data centers, Positronic’s connectors evolve in design and function over time. Inaccessible data translates to lost time, finances, and productivity, so we never skimp on performance or reliability. And as data centers grow more complex, we’re prepared to develop innovative solutions to support the industry’s need to grow more powerful and agile.

Modular Designs for Versatility

blankA unique data center requires a unique power system, and modular designs can help engineers satisfy their most singular, complex requirements. Modular design refers to the use of standardized parts (or independent units) to build more complicated structures. The concept of modularity is used in a variety of industries, including the design and manufacture of electrical connectors.

With its modular design, Positronic’s Scorpion series can be tailored to each customer’s goals. Within some defined product parameters and limitations, these connectors are customizable. Engineers have the freedom to adjust their connectors’ voltage, current, circuit, and size to ensure they meet the needs of the data center. They can achieve the ideal size, weight, and power (SWaP), choosing from over a million combinations. In fact, the Scorpion series offers the widest range of contact sizes and voltage options in the industry.

A Community Member of the Open Compute Project

In May 2019, Positronic announced that it had joined the Open Compute Project (OCP) as a Community Member.

Founded by Facebook in 2011, the OCP is a global community that aims to “design, use, and enable mainstream delivery of the most efficient designs for scalable computing.” By openly sharing ideas and intellectual property, the companies involved believe they can promote efficient, economical, and sustainable innovation in the IT industry. Positronic is proud to be a part of this optimistic, collaborative project and continues to renew its Community Membership.
