shipped with two IEC C19 to C20 jumper cables. Connect the C19 plug to the enclosure’s power
supplies and the C20 plug to the power distribution unit (PDU) in the rack cabinet. For power
redundancy, split the power connections from each enclosure into separate PDUs and connect
the PDUs to external power receptacles on different circuits. The enclosure supports only 200 V
to 240 V input sources.
