Switched & Metered Power Distribution Units


Within the active PDUs, a distinction can be made between switched and metered PDUs. These power strips are also often referred to as smart PDUs.

         

  1. Switched PDU  

    This type of PDU disposes of switching capabilities that allows the connected devices to be switched on and off. An integrated watchdog function enables automated and case-specific switching sequences. In practice, the quality of the integrated switching relays plays a key role here.

  2. Metered PDU 

    This type of PDU disposes of metering capabilities that measures the consumption of connected devices. This may include measuring of electrical dimensions such as voltage, current, phase angle, power factor, frequency, effective, apparent and reactive power. In addition, a configuration of threshold values ​​for the measured dimension is possible, enabling e-mail alerts if they are exceeded.

    There are three types of these PDUs:

    Unit-Metered PDU
    The measurement takes place at the input side or per bank of the PDU                                          
         Outlet-metered PDU
    The measurement takes place at each output of the PDU, i.e. per connected consumer
         Inline-Metered PDU
    The measurement takes place within the PDU. It is installed before the power distribution to equip passive PDUs with measurement capabilities

In practice, a power strip that integrates both functions is often required: a switching and measuring power distribution unit.

An overview of the switched and metered PDUs available at GUDE is provided in the following. They combine the two feature sets described above. Further information can be found on the detail pages of the respective PDU. A comparative overview of the features of the smart power distribution strips can be found in these comparison charts. The tender specifications for Expert Power Control 1202-1, Expert Power Control 8221-1, Expert Power Control 8031-3 and Expert Power Control 8316-1 are also available.
