MBP30A5

Maintenance Bypass PDU Series


MBP30A5 | Maintenance Bypass PDU Series
Allows seamless transfer of an electrical load from UPS power to utility power for connected equipment

Product Overview


The CyberPower MBP30A5, a 5-outlet (rear), 1U Maintenance Bypass Power Distribution Unit (MBP PDU), provides 100-120 VAC 30A output (derated to 24A) to 5 NEMA 5-20R receptacles. Designed for datacenters and other electrically demanding applications, the MBP30A5 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.

A 6-foot AC cord connects to utility power; a 3.3-foot AC cord connects to the output power of the UPS. The UPS draws input power from the MBP30A5 through a dedicated NEMA L5-30R separate from the outlets for connected devices. When the switch on the front of the MBP30A5 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 MBP30A5. With a 1U form factor, this PDU can be mounted in a standard server rack. Its mounting hardware also enables it to be connected to a UPS for tower configurations. The MBP30A5 is UL and RoHS compliant. A three-year limited warranty covers the PDU for three years and connected equipment for as long as you own the product.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 1U Form Factor & Mounting Hardware
    The 1U form factor is made to be mounted in a standard server rack. Mounting hardware allows the PDU to be connected to a UPS for tower configurations.
  • 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.

Understanding PDUs

Power Distribution Units (PDUs) by CyberPower are engineered to distribute reliable network power to multiple devices. A PDU does not generate conditioned power, but delivers AC power from a UPS (uninterruptible power supply), a generator, or utility power source to servers, network/telecom equipment, and other devices. Selecting the best PDU for your needs depends on the output voltage required, the number of outlets needed for connected devices, plug and outlet types, and mounting options.

Versatile. CyberPower PDUs are designed with as many as 38 outlets. Offered in 0U, 1U, and 2U form factors, each PDU includes the necessary hardware to be mounted vertically or horizontally inside densely configured rack enclosures. The PDU can also be mounted on a wall or under a shelf.

Scalable. In smaller networks, conditioned power can be distributed through a single PDU from a UPS, while a complex data center might require the connection of multiple PDUs to a large-capacity UPS system.


Different PDU Series for Different Needs

CyberPower offers multiple offerings of power distribution units (PDUs): Basic, Metered, Metered ATS, Monitored, Switched, Switched ATS and Maintenance-Bypass. Each series serves a specialized purpose. Models within the same series have similar features and capabilities.

Basic PDU Series: Reliable and unfiltered AC power distribution from a UPS system, generator, and/or utility source to multiple connected devices.

Metered PDU Series: Network-grade power distribution plus load meters (amps) to prevent overloads and safely optimize load levels.

Metered ATS PDU Series: Redundant NEMA plugs. Dual power cords can be plugged into separate power sources. If power for the primary source exceeds the lower or upper thresholds, or if power fails, the PDU will switch to the secondary power source to ensure continuous operation.

Monitored PDU Series: Network-grade power distribution with remote monitoring through an SNMP network interface and local management via a digital meter display to prevent down time due to overloads or other power events.

Switched PDU Series: Intelligent, network-grade power distribution and the ability to control outlets individually or collectively to solve power issues such as shutdowns or to plan scheduled rebooting. A digital meter provides information on load and voltage, as well as local control of the outlets. An SNMP connection enables remote monitoring and control of the outlets to ensure complete control regardless of location.

Switched ATS PDU Series: Individual management of switched outlet receptacles. Remote and local control of outlets. Redundant NEMA plugs. Dual power cords can be plugged into separate power sources. If power for the primary source exceeds the lower or upper thresholds, or if power fails, the PDU will switch to the secondary power source to ensure continuous operation.

Maintenance-Bypass Maintenance Bypass PDUs allow 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.
