The original PDU metering unit allows you to monitor the current being used by equipment connected to a standard PDU. You can monitor the current in person by viewing the LCD screen on the PDU itself or remotely from a system on the network.
Using the metering unit's HTML and SNMP interfaces, you can set threshold and alarm levels that you can monitor remotely. You also can configure the metering unit to send messages to systems on the network.
