A data center electrical installation is often accompanied by many questions regarding the IT equipment. If answers to those questions aren't easily found in the manufacturer's documentation, there's a strong chance that any assumptions made can lead to potential downtime or worse, to IT equipment certification violations. This presentation addresses those risky assumptions, and shows how you can avoid exposing your electrical installation to unnecessary risk. Real-world examples will illustrate the answers to the questions commonly asked by data center planners.

Learning Objectives:
1. Discuss what to do (and what not to do) when planning your next electrical installation of IT equipment
2. Learn how to apply the different voltage and current ratings on IT equipment
3. Understand the different IT equipment connections to the utility supply and the limitations
4. Review basic certification concepts and their application to IT equipment cabling
