Did you know that 70% of data center downtime is caused by human error?* Color-coded power cord plugs and plug inserts take the guesswork out of your data center and ensure that staff always know the priority of power connections.
- A device connected to a RED power cord plug is mission-critical and should never be unplugged
- Equipment connected to a YELLOW power cord plug should not be unplugged without management confirmation. The device may be mission-critical with a redundant power supply, allowing one input cord to be disconnected as long as the other is still connected.
- A device connected to a GREEN power cord plug is not mission-critical and can be unplugged temporarily if necessary.
Color-coded Plug Inserts are also available and prevent accidental power cord disconnections. Watch the video!
