The Anord-Mardix Group has unveiled Databar— the industry's “first intelligent datacentre busway solution”— and the first product to be launched by the firms since their merger earlier this year.
Group CEO Kevin Finegan claimed Databar is “the most versatile over-rack power distribution solution on the market”, offering higher efficiency, lower costs, more flexibility and “safer than conventional busway products”.
According to the group, the connector design of the integral coupling system makes Databar “the fastest, least-expensive” busway solution to implement. Datacentre operators can extend and adapt the busway design as needed with a universal rail and innovative tap-off features that can change as the datacentre and rack setup evolve, the company said.
In addition, Databar’s hot swappable design “can simplify installation and add safety protection for workers”.
Anord-Mardix VP Alexis Stobbe said: “The pace of deployment for IT systems gets faster every day, and that requires critical power systems that can keep pace with how quickly companies need to deploy new racks.”
The group was formed in January when US-based Bertram Capital said it was investing to bring together UK critical power equipment manufacturer Mardix with Bertram’s existing portfolio business— Anord Control Systems. The move created what Bertram said was “a global provider of critical power solutions for an array of markets spanning datacenters, renewable energy, building services, infrastructure and industrial applications”.
