Visible Light Communication (VLC)

VLCUtlizing VLC, the rack PDU offers a wide range of phase and circuit level information made available on a handheld device using the Geist App. This is a one-of-a-kind metered PDU offering such a high level of granularity.  

This information is typically only available on the unit's web interface or via software provided the device settings and IP address were configured. No prior configuration is required to access this data over VLC nor is any physical connection required. The benefit of being able to populate a rack's power consumption and sensor data at a quick scan is enjoyed by all who have physical access to the rack and want a quick summary of the unit. This allows users to capture critical data without any dependence on network infrastructure, as there is no need for a network connection or IP address, which greatly diminishes any security concerns.

VLC comes standard and the Geist App is readily available via Apple Store. Coming soon on Google Play.
