PDUMV20 4.5 5 2 2
Helps to manage load, easy install, and helps to keep racks tidy. We use these in several locations and they have been rock solid. The LED display is nice and the ability to run shorter power cables makes for a nicer installion of equipment; especially in older racks. September 16, 2013
Easy of use and management Makes it easy to add equipment to power in PDU and can choose how to distribute the load to the UPS. May 29, 2013

Extension Cord

I need a PDU with a 25' supply cable to get back to my UPS but they don't seem to exist.

If I got this unit with the 15' cable I will need approximately 10' more. I am thinking of a 10' extension cord using 12/3 cable with L5-20R on one end and L5-20P on the other.

Do you think this would be an acceptable solution?
