RPDU Instruction Manual XP Series
Specifications
Overview
The XP Series products are Power Distribution Units (PDU) intended for connection to a 30 Amp AC
Mains circuit.* The PDUs are designed to be powered by either a single phase or a three phase
AC input circuit. Three phase units can be configured for either a delta or wye input connection.
XP Series PDUs can optionally be configured with a Geist Current Meter that provides local
monitoring and display of each output circuit current.
*Global Versions of the XP Series are intended to be connected to a 32 Amp AC Mains Branch
Circuit

Installation
Instructions

4.
5.
Using appropriate hardware, mount PDU to rack (see Mounting section for additional
instructions.
Plug PDU into de-energized 30 Amp branch circuit receptacle.**
Connect devices into PDU’s output receptacles. It is recommended that the devices are
turned off until all devices are connected to PDU
Turn on branch circuit to energize PDU.
Power on devices. Sequential power up is recommended to avoid high inrush current.
**Branch Circuit should be sized based on the PDU’s nameplate electrical rating. A 24 Amp rated
PDU is intended for use on a 30 Amp Branch Circuit. For Global Units a 32 Amp rated PDU is
intended for use on a 32 Amp Branch Circuit.

If the PDU is installed in a cabinet the ambient temperature of the rack should be no greater
than 45°C.
Install the PDU such that the amount of airflow required for safe operation of equipment is not
compromised.
Mount the PDU so that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical
loading.
Follow nameplate ratings when connecting equipment to the branch circuit. Take into
consideration the effect that overloading of the circuits might have on over-current protection
and supply wiring.
The PDU relies on the building installation for protection from over-current conditions. A
certified overcurrent protection device is required in the building installation. The overcurrent
protection device should be sized according to the PDU’s nameplate ratings and local/national
electrical codes.
Reliable earthing of rack-mount equipment should be maintained. Particular attention should
be given to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit. The PDU
must be connected to an earthed socket-outlet.***
The PDU is intended for Restricted Access Locations only and only qualified service personnel
should install and access the PDU.
For pluggable equipment, install the PDU so that the input plug or appliance coupler may be
disconnected for service.
Sequential power-up of devices powered by the PDU is recommended to avoid high inrush
current.
Caution: Disconnect all power cords before servicing.
The PDU is intended for use with TN, TT, or IT power supply systems
***XP Series PDUs may optionally be configured as Isolated Ground units. All Isolated Ground
units will be shipped with an enclosure grounding cable. This cable must be connected
between the enclosure and a reliable safety ground.

Optional Local Monitoring
Power Meter
The Geist PM-1 power meter is a low-power, high accuracy meter capable of measuring true RMS
Current, Voltage, Power, and Power Factor. These values are individually shown on an easy to
read, 4-digit LED Display, which continuously scrolls through the four different measured values.
Each one of these displayed parameters is defined below. The Power Meter will automatically
begin cycling through the displayed values when the PDU is connected to AC Mains power.
·
·
·
·
Current: PDU output current draw measured in true RMS Amps
Voltage: PDU output voltage measured in true RMS Voltage
Power: PDU output power measured in Watts – referred to as real or active power
Power Factor: Ration of real PDU output power to apparent PDU output power****
Power Meter Display
****Real power is the power in a circuit that is transformed from electric to non-electric energy,
while apparent power is the total power supplied to the circuit.
Current Meter
The Geist CM-1 current meter is a low-power, high accuracy meter capable of measuring true RMS
Current. The value of current is continuously shown on an easy to read, 4-digit LED Display. The
Current Meter will automatically begin to display value of output current when the PDU is
connected to AC Mains power.
