PDU Packs Remote/Sequencing Skills

The Smart Switched power distribution unit (PDU) features outlets that can be sequentially started, controlled, and monitored remotely. The PDU monitors devices plugged into it and sends an e-mail alert if an anomaly occurs. Installable in any 19-inch rack, the Smart-Switched PDU is reportedly the lowest cost unit of its kind on the market. It is available in horizontal and vertical models that feature a digital true RMS current meter and remote power monitoring by meter, web, and SNMP. Prices start at $330 each. ORION FANS, Dallas, TX.
