Compaq Computer Announces New Power Distribution Units

January 25, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

Compaq Computer Corp. (Houston, TX) PDUs offer power protection and distribution for rack-mounted telecom equipment, servers, storage and other options. Compaq PDU products manage power distribution in rack environments without consuming valuable rack U-space. The new PDUs have a smaller form factor, which allow them to be mounted in either a zero-U or 1U configuration, depending upon customer preference. Compaq PDUs provide up to 12 output receptacles that distribute power within the rack cabinets.

Compaq's single-input PDUs are available in both high- and low-voltage models.

Features include single-input PDUs with small form factor, flexible mounting options, easy installation, PDUs ranging from 16A to 40A capacity, 12 output receptacles (the 40A model has nine output receptacles), spike and surge protection, and three-year warranty protection.
