Basic PDUs are easy to plug in and use. These devices supply electric power to IT devices and the Telecom infrastructure. Depending on the power consumption requirement, one can select from a wide range of input and output connections while being available in horizontal and vertical mounting. These devices offer highly reliable power distribution within the equipment cabinet, ranging from 2-22kW per cabinet. Some of the brands provide in-built energy metering helping organisations to generate comprehensive energy measurement data for reference. In addition, some models might be available with mechanical cable locking mechanisms that can reduce accidental cord disconnections.
