We are ordering a 42U rack for the office here and getting ready to move to our new office in the next few months.

Here is the network setup.
1x Cisco ASA 5505 FW
1x Cisco 3550 Switch
1x Dell R310 (Dual Power)
1x Dell R320 (Dual Power)
1x Dell R610 (Dual Power)
1x Dell R610 (Dual Power)
1x Dell MD1200 DAS (Dual Power)

Looking for a networked PDU to mount to the rack. Let me know what you recommend that would work well and handle the load properly. Thanks!

We are running two http://www.raritan.com/px-5000/dpxs20-30l/tech-specs/ for redundancy purposes.  Each device with dual power supplies has each supply pluged into a separate PDU.

These should support your environment with at least a little room for growth. You should have each PDU capable of handling the entire load so they should normally not exceed 50% load.
