HP Basic PDUs are designed for simple installation, reliability and cost effective power distribution. They come in a variety of form factors and outlet configurations to meet the needs of today's high-density data center rack environments. With effective power distribution supporting from 12 to 42 outlet receptacles and power levels ranging from 1.9 kVA through 19.9 kVA, HP has the Basic single or 3-phase PDU for any application. The low profile single piece design on these PDU's provides ease of access to rear devices for maintenance consideration and provides multiple mounting options. They are designed for HP racks but will also work in a large variety of third party racks. They can be installed on either side of the rack with outlets facing the back of the rack for easy access and improved clearance. For higher power density they can be installed side by side on both sides of the rack with the outlets facing in towards the center of the rack.
