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!

As experience demonstrates, not all off-the-shelf solutions are created the same. A growing number of military, industrial, and federal IT applications now necessitate the need for precise power requirements that are not always easy to come by.
For this reason, API Power & Systems Solutions has created an interactive series of "Design Your Own Tools," aimed to make the custom design process easy and enjoyable for all users, and ensure their unique needs are met without the headache and confusion of intense product search.
The "Design Your Own Rack Mount Power Strip," and "Design Your Own Three Phase PDU," tools were introduced to the SPMS website earlier this year and offer a quick, interactive menu of options allowing the user to select his or her preferences in a number of categories or enter a unique parameter. The tool offers helpful charts and visuals to enhance the process as it moves along, and upon completion, generates a full information table outlining the needs of the user. The table can then be printed and shared or submitted to an SPMS representative who will contact the user to initiate the design process.
SPMS is committed to customer fulfillment and strives to make their client's interactions as simple and satisfying as possible. Please contact an SPMS representative with any questions.
