Low Cost Power Distribution for Server Racks, Server Rooms & Data Centers
A rack PDU is a power distribution unit designed to fit into a server rack in either a vertical (0U) or horizontal (1U or more) position. You can basically think of them as industrial-grade power strips that have the potential to power multiple servers. Basic rack PDUs provide power to the IT equipment without any advanced features such as metering, monitoring, or remote access functionality.
Rack mount PDUs are offered in many sizes and configurations depending on voltage, current, number and type of connections, as well as remote access and monitoring functionality.
Basic PDUs offer:
- Low cost power distribution
- Horizontal or vertical mounting
- A variety of inputs and outputs: 120V, 208V Single Phase, 208V 3-Phase
- Varying power capacities from 15 amps to 50 amps
- Some models offer tool-less mounting ability
