A Basic PDU with 8 C13 locking outlets and a 3m mains power cable for horizontal (1U) installation in a server cabinet, rack or frame.

X198EL Basic PDU Options
This power distribution unit is made in the UK to order and is available with a number of standard and custom options.
Alternative socket outlets types include C19 and BS1363 UK square pin or a mixture of UK BS1363, C13 and C19. Prices for these are available upon request.
Surge and EMC Filter Modules
The surge module provides protection from high energy spikes locally by electrical motors or a nearby lightning strike. The EMC filter module screens out electromechanical energy generated by fluorescent lights flickering and mobile phones, that can disrupt some sensitive loads. One of these options may be preferred if the PDU power cable is not supplied from a power protection source (e.g. an uninterruptible power supply) and is connected directly to the mains power supply.
RCD Circuit Protection
An RCD (residual current device) module is available as an option for sites whose wiring circuit does not provide this protection in the form of an RCBO (residual current circuit breaker with overcurrent protection) or a combination of an RCD and MCD (miniature circuit breaker) in order to comply with the latest edition of the IEE wiring regulations.
Neon power indicators and ON/OFF switches are also available.
