Designed for datacenters and other electrically demanding applications, the CyberPower MBP63A2 Maintenance Bypass Power Distribution Unit (MBP PDU), allows the seamless transfer of an electrical load from UPS power to utility power for uninterrupted operation of connected equipment when performing maintenance, replacing batteries, or installing a new UPS. The MBP63A2 provides 208V nominal output to (1) NEMA L6-20R, (1) NEMA L6-30R and (1) Hardwire Terminal Block receptacle.
Depending on UPS model, either a 3.3-foot AC cord or hardwire terminal block connects to the output power of the UPS. The UPS draws input power from the MBP63A2 separate from the outlets or terminal block for connected devices. When the switch on the front of the MBP63A2 is turned from Normal to Bypass, or from Bypass to Normal, the power that the MBP supplies to connected devices moves from one input power source to another. The LED display indicates which power source is active.
Rugged, industrial-grade metal housing protects the MBP63A2. With a 2U form factor, this PDU can be mounted horizontally or vertically in a standard server rack, on a wall or in a tower configuration. The MBP63A2 is UL and RoHS compliant. A three-year limited warranty covers the PDU.
- Power Distribution
Delivers AC power to servers, equipment, and connected devices via a power distribution unit.
- Maintenance Bypass
Qualified personnel can use the bypass feature to disconnect the PDU from the UPS without disrupting power to connected equipment. This feature allows connected equipment to operate seamlessly during maintenance periods, battery replacement, or UPS installation.
- Manual Bypass Switch
When the Manual Bypass Switch is turned to Normal, connected equipment is supplied by UPS output. When the Manual Bypass Switch is turned to Bypass, connected equipment is supplied by utility power.
- MBP Detection Cable
Communicates directly between the UPS and Maintenance Bypass PDU to safely coordinate the bypass switch operation. When the PDU bypass switch operation is initiated by removing the cover, the MBP Detection Cable sends a signal to the UPS to internally transfer to bypass mode to prevent UPS damage.
- Network-Grade Plugs and Outlets
Highly durable construction ensures the efficient distribution of power in demanding IT or industrial environments to servers, equipment, and connected devices.
- 2U Form Factor & Mounting Hardware
The 2U form factor is made to be mounted horizontally or vertically in a standard server rack, on a wall or in a tower configuration.
- Durable Metal Housing
Protects internal components and resists damage from impact or abrasions within challenging industrial environments. Also extends the life of the product.
- Three-Year Limited Warranty
Covers defects in materials and workmanship in the product under normal use and conditions. See warranty for details.
