We recently moved our server equipment into a newly constructed room and the electrician powered up the room with an L15-30R receptacle.  We didn't know it at the time but we had an L14-30R plug on the end of our Power Distribution Units, and it allowed us to plug in the plug even though it went it hard.  When we plugged it in and turned on the bypass switch to the UPS it blew a 30 Amp circuit and smoke started coming out of our PDU.  How can we tell if it ruined the PDU?

If it was smoking, it is ruined. Best to have it repaired before you try to use it again.

I agree, you need to have it professionally serviced before trying to use it again. the network card if removable may be salvagable.

I hope this helps !
