Caution - PDU installation and configuration must be done by qualified personnel with experience installing similar hardware.
Caution - Before installing and using the PDU, check it for any external damage. If the PDU is damaged, do not install or operate the PDU and contact your service representative.
Caution - The PDU, and any electrical equipment connected to it, can be damaged by power load ratings above the values listed in Standard PDU Electrical Specifications.
Caution - Do not use the PDU in damp rooms. If a liquid spills on the PDU, or if the PDU becomes damp from condensation, immediately disconnect the power input lead connector from the AC power supply. Contact your service representative before using the PDU again. You might need to return it for inspection.
Caution - Choose the maximum permitted fuse/circuit breaker load in the building according to the values listed in Standard PDU Electrical Specifications. Observe all national and local regulations, safety provisions, and fuse load variations.
Caution - Never bend, or rest any object on, a PDU's power input lead.
Caution - Ensure that the total power consumed by all of the connected equipment does not exceed the respective nominal power rating of the PDU.
Caution - Always provide an easily accessible safety disconnect for units with fixed connections.
Caution - When connecting equipment to the PDU, ensure that you install the most symmetrical load to all of the phases as possible.
Caution - Elevated Operating Ambient – If equipment installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment might be greater than the room ambient. Therefore, consider installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer.
Caution - Reduced Air Flow – Install equipment in the rack in a way that does not compromise the amount of air flow required for the safe operation of the equipment.
Caution - Mechanical Loading – Mount equipment in the rack to prevent a hazardous condition due to uneven mechanical loading.
Caution - Circuit Overloading – When connecting equipment to the PDU, consider the damaging effect that overloading the circuits might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Always review the equipment nameplate ratings when considering circuit overloading issues.
Caution - Reliable Earthing – Always maintain the reliable earthing of rackmounted equipment. Give particular attention to supply connections other than the direct connections to the branch circuit (for example, when using power strips).
