According to Uptime Institute, 15% of outages cost more than $1 million - an increase from 11% in 2019
Power failure in the data center isn’t going away, in fact, the impact and cost of outages is only growing. And while some of the causes of power failure are changing – think software and networking – human error, faulty equipment, and UPS failures continue to be the main culprits. This is true for edge, core, enterprise, or colocation data centers.
Regardless of the environment you’re operating in, you can find a place for one, or all of the products developed by Zonit. From our Z-LOCK dual-locking cords to the Z-ATS Industrial – our newest product that provides dual power redundancy for critical automated control panels.
Save that Money and Time with Zonit
Z-LOCK was designed to help eliminate human errors and connectivity issues.
- Securely locks on both ends regardless of the brand of PDU, or manufacturer, of IT hardware.
- Eliminates accidental, vibration, and nuisance disconnects
- Lowest cost option for securing critical power paths
“At 33%, on-premise power failures cause the most outages [in data center environments], but network and connectivity issues come in a close second at 31%.”
For Data Centers of All Types
Not only do our dual locking cords come in handy in an Enterprise data center, but they’re also ideal for MDF / IDF closets and Edge.
And they also address 5 common cabling issues:
- Tightly packed cable bundles
- Human error
- Kinks or bends in the cable
- Poorly constructed cables
- Using the wrong connectors
According to the Uptime Institute, proper training and process improvements can address roughly 70% of the Data Center power failures caused by human error.
One easy to deploy improvement is using Zonit dual-locking IEC power cords in all your data centers.
Redundant Power Guaranteed
The Z-ATS Micro was designed to automatically switch from the primary power source (A) to the backup source (B) as needed.
- It’s fast…in less than 14ms the load is secure
- Takes up ZERO-U in the rack
- No programming, software, or firmware updates
- Cost-effective 1-to-1 solution
Not only has the duration of unplanned outages lasted twice as long as partially planned outages, but their duration has also increased over the last 10 years.

A Better ATS for the Data Center
Stop consuming multiple U with an expensive, multi-port ATS that is often under utilized. The Zonit Z-ATS Micro is simply the easiest and most cost-effective way to minimize downtime and provide redundant power at all times.

“We have a copy/paste design solution that we don’t have to tweak from project to project.”
Eliminate Domains of Failure While Saving Time and Money
The Z-PDS is the Swiss army knife of power distribution that reduces breaker positions and whips by up to 2/3.
Easy receptacle changes can be made by technicians rather than electricians using standard, NEMA twist-lock plug adapters. Now you can save on capital and operational costs.

Power Path Reliability (PPR)
Establishing Power Path Reliability requires flexibility and optimization. This is why the Z-PDS shines:
- A+B redundantly powered 3 phase RPP / PDU
- Requires only 2U in the rack
- Circuit breaker protection for each phase of each output
- Ability to pull single phase, split single phase, or 3 phase power in 208V, 415V and 480V flavors
Backup Power When You Need It
Equipment gets old, UPSs fail, and breaking heat records are the norm. If any of these scenarios keep you up at night, the Z-ATS Industrial is the Zonit product for you.
- Protects against UPS failures
- A defacto maintenance bypass
- A “cut and paste” solution
- Provides dual-power redundancy…
Several of the world’s largest automated control panel manufacturers have already installed thousands of Z-ATS Industrial units inside their hyperscale client’s critical HVAC, fire panel, and environmental monitoring controls.
Preventing Common Data Center Outages
Ups failures, voltage spikes, cooling failures, unplanned maintenance… all of these issues can be addressed with the Z-ATS Industrial.
With a 3″ x 6″ x 1-1/2″ form factor and integrated DIN rail mounting – it’s small and can easily fit inside any control panel enclosure.
In 2022, Amazon, Oracle, and Google data centers dropped offline due to cooling issues.
Don’t lose sleep, deploy the Z-ATS Industrial in your HVAC control panels and generators to get the power redundancy you need and deserve.
