The Expert PDU Energy 8311 is a network-compatible power distribution unit and enables power distribution and metering of energy, current and voltage via a TCP/IP network. On the front side of the unit are 7 power ports with safety socket type F connection. At the same time, the Power Distribution Unit has SNMPv3, SSL and IPv6 capability and supports Telnet, Radius and Modbus TCP.

The metered PDUs feature two integrated energy meters. Measurement of a variety of electrical variables enable users to identify and exploit power-saving potential in the IT environment. An easy-to-read illuminated LCD display (two lines) provides information about all relevant information of the device. Thanks to sensor connectors, environment temperature, humidity and air pressure can be monitored with plug-and-play sensors. In addition, the user receives warning messages when fault currents occur (residual current measurement type A). This enables preventive maintenance measures to be taken even before downtime occurs.
