Metered 30-Amp Horizontal PDU, 12-Outlet (IEC C13 [2 x 6])
Installation Steps
1. This PDU is designed for indoor usage and should be mounted horizontally into a standard EIA 19” equipment rack. The unit
should be attached via mounting brackets behind, beside, or on the vertical rails with proper screws. Placement of the PDU is
dependent upon customer preference.
WARNING: Failure to properly ground this PDU by not tightening the rack screw fasteners or fully inserting the PDU into the
equipment rack can create a hazardous condition to the installer and to the equipment.
2. Attach the equipment loads into the matching receptacles. The total combined load must be less than that specified on the
WARNING: Prior to connecting input power cables, ensure that the circuit breaker is turned off and that the input power to the
PDU is turned off.
3. Attach the power source to the input receptacle(s) on the PDU.
4. If the PDU is equipped with LEDs, verify that the LED indicator lamps illuminate.
WARNING: Elevated Operating Ambient Temperature: If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient
temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient temperature. When installing equipment, be sure to
consider the ambient temperature range of 32 to 77° F (0 to 25° C), or 32 to 131° F (0 to +55° C) for non-metered units.
Reduced Airflow — Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of airflow required for safe
operation of the equipment is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading — Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not achieved from
uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading — Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect
that overloading of the circuits might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment
nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern. For North American permissible loads, refer to Article 210.23 of
the National Electric Code.
Reliable grounding of rackmounted equipment should be maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connections
other than direct connections to the branch circuit.
- Output connector voltage rating is 200–250V ~
- Maximum current rating is located on the product label.
Meter Usage — Upon power-up, the meter will perform a self-test routine and then continuously display AC volts with the
VOLTS LED illuminated. The display will remain in VOLTS mode until the SEL (select) button is pressed.
Press the SEL button to view each of the other metered settings: VOLTS, AMPS, WATTS, and PF (power factor). As the unit cycles
through the display options, each corresponding LED will be illuminated on the meter.
Auto Cycle Mode — Hold the SEL button down for three seconds to place the unit in auto-cycling mode; the display will scroll
through all four measurements, with each measurement being displayed for three seconds. Press the SEL button again to return
the unit to the fixed VOLTS reading.

Safety Instructions
Before installation, read these instructions carefully and completely. These installation instructions cannot cover every possible
installation, operation, or maintenance situation.
This Power Distribution Unit (PDU) is constructed and approved in accordance with the safety requirements of IEC/EN60950 and
FCC emission standards.
Warning: Never work on the PDU if power is applied.
Before any installation, maintenance, or modification work, ensure that the power source is switched off and properly secured to
remain off. Touching any live components or improper handling of this PDU can result in death, severe personal injury, or substantial damage to property. Safe operation is dependent upon proper storage, handling, installation, and operation.
Compliance with the relevant national regulations in the U.S., Europe, or other countries must be ensured. Before operation is
started, the following conditions must be observed:
• Connections to main power supply must be made in compliance with national regulations (NEC, NEMA, VDE0100 and
• When using stranded wires, all strands must be fastened in the terminal blocks (to avoid the potential danger of contact with
the enclosure).
• The power supply and main cables must be sufficiently fused.
• The degree of protection is I to IEC536. The non-fused protective ground connection must be connected to the Field Ground
• All output wires must be rated for the output current of the PDU, and must be connected with the correct polarity.
• The main socket-outlet should be installed near the equipment and should be easily accessible.
