The stability of the mains power supply is desirable in many applications, including data centers and telecommunications. Any fluctuations can adversely affect the performance of devices and equipment used in these areas. Unfortunately, you cannot expect to always have a stable power supply to your premise. Even if it is a DC source, you can always expect variations. That is why we have power interface units.
Cisco Nexus power interface unit has high efficiency of about 91%. This shows how the input power is converted to useful output power while minimizing losses. With such an efficient PIU, you can expect low thermal heating within the unit. As a result, cooling also becomes more efficient, giving you fewer worries about utility bills.
Each power interface unit provides information about power consumption. In other words, they act as energy meters to help you keep track of power usage within the system. This capability is ideal if you want to control the electrical units you use over a given period.
A power interface module makes it possible to hot-swap the power supply unit without causing service interruptions. That is necessary for mission-critical applications that require constant uptime. Sometimes you don't want your system to fail, as that can result in immeasurable losses.
Cisco's power interface module has temperature sensors as instrumentation tools. The internal temperature is constantly monitored, and the entire power system is switched off if it exceeds the tolerance level. That is necessary to prevent severe damages to the internal components of the power supply.
Faults are rare to occur in such a complex device, but you cannot eliminate them. They can take the form of a short circuit or hardware failure. When a fault is detected, the unit is shut down. The mixed operation of power interface units makes it possible to work with both AC and DC powers and facilitates AC to DC power conversion.
