Understanding PDUs

Power Distribution Units (PDUs) by CyberPower are engineered to distribute reliable network power to multiple devices. A PDU does not generate conditioned power, but delivers AC power from a UPS (uninterruptible power supply), a generator, or utility power source to servers, network/telecom equipment, and other devices. Selecting the best PDU for your needs depends on the output voltage required, the number of outlets needed for connected devices, plug and outlet types, and mounting options.

Versatile. CyberPower PDUs are designed with as many as 38 outlets. Offered in 0U, 1U, and 2U form factors, each PDU includes the necessary hardware to be mounted vertically or horizontally inside densely configured rack enclosures. The PDU can also be mounted on a wall or under a shelf.

Scalable. In smaller networks, conditioned power can be distributed through a single PDU from a UPS, while a complex data center might require the connection of multiple PDUs to a large-capacity UPS system.
