“Server Technology has developed a PDU that truly reduces the need for IT managers to constantly purchase new power units in support of ever-changing rack power requirements, while also simplifying the decision of what C13/C19 combinations are needed to support different rack-mounted equipment," said Calvin Nicholson, Senior Director of Product Management Power, at Legrand, Data Power and Control Division. “We are proud that HDOT Cx continues to be validated by data centre managers as well as esteemed publications as the best and most flexible PDU offering on the market, and look forward to this year's voting results."

The Cx rack-mounted PDU outlet is a UL tested hybrid of the C13 and C19 outlets. All HDOT Cx modules utilize Cx outlets that can accommodate either a C14 or C20 power cable without the need for additional parts or adapters. The HDOT Cx is available in Server Technology's complete line of Smart, Switched, and POPS PDUs. HDOT Cx lengthens the PDU life span, reduces the number of PDU SKUs required and provides the peace-of-mind that data centre professionals can support any new hardware configurations thrown their way.About Server Technology
