Power Distribution Unit (PDU)


What is a power distribution unit (PDU)

Well in it's simplest form a power distribution unit or PDU is designed to distribute electrical power to multiple devices from an uninterupted power source. A PDU is highly reliable and is used as basic hardware in functions such as:

  • Telecom equipment
  • Data centres

A power distribution unit (PDU) can be rack mounted, ranging from 1U and up, or come as a standalone cabinet, where a large number of racks or rows of racks require a controlled source.


Why is a power distribution unit (PDU) necessary?

This may depend on the type of PDU in use.
In its very basic form a power distribution unit or PDU is used for providing enough outlets to supply other electrical devices and the use of dual input power sources are often used to ensure vital equipment always has a power supply. In a metered PDU, the power distribution unit can also be used to track and control electrical distribution and can be used by the network manager to determine their capacity.

Also by simply changing the rating of the circuit breakers or fuses, many types of equipment requiring different currents can be powered from the same source with peace of mind that all equipment will have full protection.
