Metered Power Distribution Units

With metered PDUs to demonstrably higher energy efficiency and fewer IT failures

Within active PDUs, a distinction can be made between switched and metered PDUs. These power strips are also often referred to as intelligent PDUs. Read more detailed information about these terms.

Protect your IT and AV installation with GUDE’s intelligent power distribution strips. These PDUs have extensive metering functionality.

The right metered PDU for every application

This PDU has a measuring function that can be used to measure the consumption of the connected devices. These can be measurements of electrical quantities such as voltage, current, phase angle, power factor, frequency, active, apparent and reactive power. The measurement of fault current, which is important for operational safety, can also be recorded. In addition, it is possible to configure limit values for the measured quantities, which, if exceeded, result in an immediate alarm via e-mail. There are three types of current measurement:

Unit-Metered PDU (input side)
The measurement is performed at the input or per bank of the PDU

Outlet-metered PDU (output side)
The measurement is made in relation to each output of the PDU, i.e. per connected load.

Inline-metered PDU (intermediate)
The measurement is made inside the PDU. It is placed before the distribution to provide passive PDUs with metering functionality.
