What you need to know when selecting a PDU - Power Distribution Unit for your data center racks: Most common things you will need to know when buying a PDU (also called power strips and Power Distribution Units, CDU and Cabinet Power Distribution Unit) for your data center racks. What type power do I have coming to the rack? 110 volt or 208 volt? What type of inlet cord set will I need to plug the PDU into the outlet circuit on the wall? NEMA non-locking 5-15P, 5-20P or NEMA locking L5-20P, L5-30P, L6-20P or L6-30P? What type of outlets will I need for my PDU to power my devices in the rack? NEMA Non-locking 5-15R or 5-20R or IEC 60320 C13 or C19? These are questions you will need to know if you are looking to aquire PDUs for your data center or network closet.

How do I determine how much amperage my PDU can handle? Do I have room in the rack to mount a horizontal 1U PDU or should I use a vertical 0U PDU that will mount on the back side of the rack? What are the different types of PDUs that are used in most data centers and network closets? What is the difference in 3-phase vs. single phase power PDUs? Which PDU manufacturer should I select and why? If you do google searches you will find dozens of manufacturers that build PDUs claiming their PDU is the best.

There are also may different types of PDUs in the data center, they include basic rack mount PDUs, rack mount metered PDUs, rack mount smart PDUs, switched PDUs, which can remotely turn on or off an outlet used for remote rebooting servers and network devices, and most currently there are POPS PDUs that enables you to monitor the electrical current being used by each outlet. The POPs PDUs are useful for data centers that want to charge customers for electric usage. This is a great resource for them to measure power usage per outlet or customer

A number of high quality rack mount PDU or Power Distribution Unit models have functions including remote energy monitoring as well as electrical power condition control down towards the device or even specific outlet stage. Selected brands also consist of environmental monitoring by means of RS485, USB, Dallas 1-Wire or even Serial ports. The electrical power outlets by themselves tend to be generally IEC-C19, IEC-C13 or NEMA 5-20 model outlets. There are many rackmount PDU solutions for data centers, so you will have to do your homework when selecting a PDU
