Looking for a PDU to fit your project’s requirements? Needing something a little different than the normal off-the-shelf solution? Yes, there are manufacturers that are able to tailor a solution that can fulfill your particular requirements. What are the key questions to ask a PDU manufacturer when looking for this type of solution?
- What are your company’s capabilities?
- Does your company complete the design and engineering work in-house?
- Is your company experienced in providing both AC & DC solutions?;
- Are your products UL listed?.
- Does your company have a minimum purchase amount for a customized solution?.
- Can your company provide examples of customized solutions that you have manufactured?
It’s important to remember that there are companies such as API Power & Systems Solutions that have the engineering and manufacturing capabilities/expertise to provide solutions that are designed to fit your needs rather than you trying to fit someone’s off-the-shelf solution…..always be sure to weigh your options and don’t settle for less!

It is estimated that companies could save billions of dollars each year by using all DC distribution in their data centers and servers. Utilizing direct current power eliminates the conversion process of AC to DC power, ultimately, reducing electricity consumption and conserving greater energy.
API Power Systems & Solutions is proud to have been included in Project GreenLight's recent DC energy studies conducted at the University of California, San Diego. With the help of Direct Power Technologies, the 74D-160FRLGN-00 380V DC Rack Mount Power Strip was featured as an energy saving DC solution in the experiments.
