I need to replace an APC Symmetra LX UPS. The model has NEMA L5-20R outputs that PDU's are plugged into. The PDU's are feeding the rack equipment which uses NEMA 5-15 outputs.
In looking at replacements all the models have NEMA L6-20 or NEMA L6-30 outputs. So I'll need new PDUs to connect to the new UPS. The PDU's also have different outputs C19 and C13 which is IEC not NEMA. So I'll need new power cabled for the rack equipment to plug into the PDUs.
Is the fact that the old UPS has the L5 connections just because its older technology? Or is the L6 conneciton needed to handle additional load? Or is it something else.
Will my servers work with the C19 and C13 connections. I'll need different power cables for the servers and other equipment but I'm assuming it will still work.
