Avocent Power Management 10/20 Series
Distribution Units (PM 10/20 PDUs)
Integrated Remote Power Management and Distribution for Use in
Branch and Remote Offices
Quick Facts
• Power control over remote IT assets from
anywhere on earth
• Seamless integration with other Avocent
appliances and with the DSView® 3
management software
• Proactive fault management and isolation
• Fault notifications via e-mail, SMS page
and SNMP traps
Benefits
• Restore practically any IT asset without
dispatching service personnel
Avocent PM 10 Horizontal PDU
Avocent PM PDUs enable remote power control and system management of IT assets in
branch and remote offices. When used in conjunction with Avocent ACS advanced console
servers, MergePoint Unity® KVM over IP and serial console switches or DSR® KVM over IP
switch appliances, the Avocent PM PDUs offer quick problem resolution through an integrated management interface. With one or more outlets positively associated with a particular
device, users may control power “in line” through a user-defined “hot key” or by using an

Avocent NEMA PM PDU models are equipped with 5-15R power outlets and fixed power
cables. These units are available in 15A, 20A and 30A capacities with optional twist-lock input
plugs. Each model includes two RS-232 ports: one for management and the second for daisychain expansion. Daisy chaining allows an operator to control up to 128 power outlets as a
single device. The NEMA models are designed to operate in 100-125 VAC environments.
IEC Models
Avocent IEC PM PDU models are equipped with IEC320-C13 power outlets and either
IEC320 modular inlets or fixed power cables. These units are available in 10A, 15A, 16A,
20A, 30A and 32A capacities. Each model includes two RS-232 ports: one for management
and the second for daisy-chain expansion. Daisy chaining allows an operator to control up to
128 power outlets as a single device. The IEC models are designed to operate in 100-240
VAC environments.
An LED display shows the real-time, true RMS current draw. Each PM PDU may be configured to sound an alarm during an overcurrent condition, and if it is connected to an Avocent
ACS console server, the PDU may also send notifications via e-mail messages, Short
Message Service (SMS) pager messages and SNMP traps.
