Data center power distribution
Unmatched power technology for unmatched results
Improve your data centers’ energy efficiency, climate footprint, and uptime. With Danfoss, you get unmatched expertise, experience, and an end-to-end product portfolio of power distribution solutions, units, insights, and support.
How sustainable power distribution helps reach your performance goals
Data center power distribution is not just about finding the right power distribution units. With Danfoss' advanced data center equipment, you can do much more than provide power to your racks:
Our DC Grid solutions help overcome the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources, supporting energy-neutral operations. Our DC grid systems offer exciting opportunities for easy integration of alternative energy or redundant power sources.
And with our innovative and economic redundancy system, we can help ensure a consistently reliable power supply and significantly reduce capital investment. They also facilitate transmission of relevant data for increasingly complex power management systems which use artificial intelligence and machine learning to optimize PUE.
We can support you in improving power usage effectiveness (PUE) through reduced power distribution losses. And facilitate intelligent and reliable back-up supply in the event of power outage, ensuring Tier 3 or Tier 4 protection for stable operation of servers and systems.

What power distribution aspects would you like to explore?
From power supply to rack and back: Danfoss' power distribution units can handle all demands regarding your data center's electrical power system. We can help you design and install power distribution systems and connect new technology that spends less energy while ensuring reliability and uptime.
Most data centers today run on AC distribution. However, DC grids offer exciting opportunities for easy integration of alternative energy or redundant power sources. Danfoss DC systems ensure reliable power conversion in smart distribution grids and DC grids with energy storage.
Peak shaving using energy storage smooths the peaks and troughs, so the grid supply can operate consistently at the average power demand, which is usually relatively low.
Smart grids are evolving due to the new demands on our power supply. With integrated power storage, smart grids facilitate energy supply time shift to overcome the intermittent nature of many renewable energy sources.
They also provide backup supply in the event of power outages and handle peaks, allowing designers to downscale equipment to lower ratings to cope with regular loads, not peak loads.
Harmonic distortion, which generally results from nonlinear loads in the power system, poses one of the greatest threats to power quality. Harmonics can cause malfunctions in your server rack, reduce reliability, increase downtime, and increase operating costs.
Danfoss can deliver solutions that allow you to connect large loads to your power supply without fear of creating an unacceptable distortion level. Under certain conditions, our solutions can actually ‘eat’ existing harmonics.
Keep your servers humming with advanced equipment and services
Danfoss power distribution equipment for data centers facilitates ideal thermal conditions around server installations while keeping power consumption and CO2 emissions at a minimum. Optimize the capacity of your IT equipment and prevent expensive downtime while increasing efficiency and savings.
VACON® NXP DC Guard™
Utilizing a DC grid in a data center brings several benefits, notably easier integration of renewable power sources and reduced loss of power. However, it does require sophisticated protection technology—like VACON® NXP DCGuard™. This semiconductor protection device detects and cuts off faulty DC currents within 5 microseconds.
