WORD OF THE DAY:

Switched PDU
A switched power distribution unit (PDU) is a type of intelligent rack PDU that allows for turning individual outlets or groups of outlets on the PDU on and off. With a switched PDU, devices can be power controlled remotely and in a specific order. It also allows for delayed power sequences so that there is no inrush of power, increasing the lifespan of the devices.
