Different PDU Series for Different Needs
CyberPower offers multiple offerings of power distribution units (PDUs): Basic, Metered, Metered ATS, Monitored, Switched, Switched ATS and Maintenance-Bypass. Each series serves a specialized purpose. Models within the same series have similar features and capabilities.
Basic: Reliable and unfiltered AC power distribution from a UPS system, generator, and/or utility source to multiple connected devices.
Metered: Network-grade power distribution plus load meters (amps) to prevent overloads and safely optimize load levels.
Monitored: Network-grade power distribution with remote monitoring through an SNMP network interface and local management via a digital meter display to prevent downtime due to overloads or other power events.
Switched: Intelligent, network-grade power distribution and the ability to control outlets individually or collectively to solve power issues such as shutdowns or to plan scheduled rebooting. A digital meter provides information on load and voltage, as well as local control of the outlets. An SNMP connection enables remote monitoring and control of the outlets to ensure complete control regardless of location.
Switched Metered-by-Outlet: Monitor the power consumption of individual outlets in real-time over the network, or locally using the PDU’s interactive digital display. Outlets can be switched on and off remotely for unscheduled reboots, automated load shedding, controlled power-cycling and more.
Metered ATS: Redundant NEMA plugs. Dual power cords can be plugged into separate power sources. If power for the primary source exceeds the lower or upper thresholds, or if power fails, the PDU will switch to the secondary power source to ensure continuous operation.
Switched ATS: Individual management of switched outlet receptacles. Remote and local control of outlets. Redundant NEMA plugs. Dual power cords can be plugged into separate power sources. If power for the primary source exceeds the lower or upper thresholds, or if power fails, the PDU will switch to the secondary power source to ensure continuous operation.
Maintenance-Bypass: Maintenance Bypass PDUs allow the seamless transfer of an electrical load from UPS power to utility power for uninterrupted operation of connected equipment when performing maintenance, replacing batteries, or installing a new UPS.
