Hi,

I am looking into UPS Backup Power from APC and i have a few questions.  I have 2 Dell Servers and A network switch etc.  The switch is in a Cabinet with its own PDU.  How do i connect the PDU to the UPS so that the power sockets from the PDU are powered from the UPS.  I live in the UK and the UPS have IEC sockets.

Regards,
Anthony

Hello d10u4v,

What PDU's do you have - HP/Compaq MPDU's will not plug into an APC UPS - but if you can put a standard IEC sockets on the MPDU then they will plug into the APC UPS (check it has enough wattage to supply all this stuff!)

If your in the UK then the standard IEC socket you will understand when I say (Kettle Lead) you will need a female end to go into the UPS and a male end for the switch - you can get them to "Wire on" I carry a couple in my tool box forthis very reason - or simply wire one onto the PDU

When you say wire on, where do you get the wire on version from?

Great Thanks!  So technically i could wire my PDU sockets into the UPS with these IEC's?  By the way, my PDU is just a standard rack mout version (like a extention socket with 4 plugs on it.)  I just need to keep my switches and modem alive so tha my Servers (connected to a diferent UPS) can shut down succesfully :)

Yes - providing the combined wattage of everything you are going to plug into the UPS doesn't exceed its capacity :)
