PDU Overview

This document provides instructions for both original PDUs and enhanced PDUs. You can install up to two PDUs in one Oracle Rack 1242 cabinet.

  • The original PDU metering unit allows you two ways to monitor the current being used by equipment connected to a PDU. You can monitor the current in person by viewing the LCD screen on the PDU itself or the Current Measurement page using HTML interface.

  • For enhanced PDUs, there are four ways you can monitor how much power, energy and current the equipment attached to the PDU uses, as well as the voltage level powering the equipment, the PDU's LCD screen, the Monitoring Overview page using HTML interface, the RS-232 interface, or the SSH interface.
