Over the Last Decade 32,000 Power Outages Impacted Multiple Campuses Across the United States
Unplanned power failures can happen almost anywhere and at any time on University and college campuses. That’s why you can find more than one Zonit product in use at any given time on campuses across the country.
From data centers to generators, Zonit has a solution to help you maintain and improve your critical power uptime – while saving valuable space and money.
1. In the Data Center
5 Cabling Issues That Can Cause Power Failure in the Data Center
- Tightly packed cable bundles
- Human error
- Kinks or bends in the cable
- Poorly constructed cables
- Using the wrong connectors
“All cables will need to be no longer than what is needed to reach the equipment and run to the next place of connection (i.e. cables will not be allowed to be coiled up inside or outside of the racks).”
Cables Designed for More Than the Data Center
Yes, Zonit dual locking cords are perfect for campus data centers, but they’re also really useful in small MDF / IDF closets found in nearly every building on campus.
“One of the biggest fears of any Laboratory Manager or Research Scientist is the thought of a power outage. A power outage creates the potential for loss of valuable specimens and years of research.”
Phil Cundiff Manager of Claims and Loss Control – Yale University
2. In Research Facilities and Labs
Eliminate Downtime Risk in Research Facilities and Labs
The Z-ATS Industrial is a “Cut and paste” solution designed to provide dual power redundancy in closets and critical automated control panels such as:
- Environmental monitoring, and more…
Did you know one of the world’s largest OEMs has already ordered thousands of Z-ATS Industrial units to be installed in the HVAC control panels across multiple hyperscalers?
Now you can install Z-ATS Industrial units across your campus.
Z-ATS Industrials are now on campus
Don't Wait Until the UPS Fails
With a defacto maintenance bypass, you can save thousands by performing maintenance on your schedule while keeping the systems up.
With a wide operational temperature range and DIN rail mounting that allows installation inside and outside existing control panels, the Industrial is a small and rugged, dual power ATS that’s ready to go out of the box.
“We don’t live in a room with AC and now we don’t have any access to our fans, so it’s just been miserable.” ~ R. Jackson student
“I’ve used my car [to adequately charge devices needed for class], which I know is not something that every student has access to.” ~ E. Teitsch student
3. In the Dorms
Reduce Power Failures in the Dorms
The Z-ATS instantly converts single corded devices into a dual power solution that is:
- Fast – securing the load in less than 11ms
- The world’s smallest – no bigger than in iPhone
- Is Zero U – taking up next to no space in the rack, and more…
The Perfect Solution for Single Power Devices in the Rack
The less efficient, but common method to solving single corded challenges in the rack, is to consume multiple U with an expensive, multi-plug ATS that is rarely fully populated. The Z-ATS is the easiest and most cost-effective way to solve this challenge threatening power reliability.

4, 5... Campus Wide
A PDS Designed for Any Location
The Z-PDS is the Swiss army knife of power distribution for smaller spaces. That’s why it’s broadly deployed across governments, retail, the space industry… and perfect for lecture halls, campus grounds, or anywhere you need single or 3-phase power to feed 1-6 racks.
“… We find that costs of power outages pertaining to staff, students and faculty in certain departments to be significantly high and propose a set of remedial recommendations… The study also provide a range estimate of $5 million to $15 million for the total annual losses accruing to Carnegie Mellon.”

Power path reliability (PPR) outside of the data center
Establishing Power Path Reliability for IDF/MDF 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 utilizing 208V, 415V and 480V
