What do I need to know when choosing a PDU?


Before choosing a power distribution unit, it's helpful to understand the application and have answers for the following questions:


  • Do you need an enhanced metered, metered or basic PDU?
  • Will the PDU be mounted horizontally or vertically?
  • Is the input voltage 120v or 208v / 3 phase?
  • What is the input amperage and plug style?
  • Is the output voltage 120v, 208v or 208v 3 phase?
  • What is the output amperage
  • What is the plug style?
  • How many receptacles?
  • Is overload protection needed?
