How to Achieve Lower PUE in Your Data Center

How to Achieve Lower PUE in Your Data Center

PUE or Power Usage Effectiveness indicates the ratio of a data center’s energy usage to the amount of energy consumed by the center’s IT equipment alone. The ideal Power Usage Effectiveness ratio is 1.0. This is due to the fact that a data center’s central objective is to provide IT resources for an organization or consumers. Ideally, all the energy used up by a data center goes towards the center’s IT equipment.

That would mean no

WEG's Hydraulic Units Offer Energy-Reducing Power Solution

WEG’s Hydraulic Units Offer Energy-Reducing Power Solution

As manufacturing professionals can tell you, hydraulic-powered equipment actually requires a certain amount of electrical energy to run. The electric motor helps circulate the hydraulic fluid. When the equipment does not need to move, the electric motor keeps circulating the fluid at rated speeds. This causes excessive wear and tear on the motor and can heat the hydraulic fluid up.

The Solution

WEG has developed energy-reducing power solutions for hydraulic equipment. This solution involves adjusting the
