Penn Elcom has released its new PDU16-10DJ PDU (power distribution unit) range of 1U rack mounting units which combine all the power and practicality of 10 switchable output sockets - available with different socket outlets - and a range of power ratings between 10 and 16 Amps.
The full catalogue of Penn PDU devices now includes these four new slimline variants plus four other 2U devices, all of which are designed to flexibly assist full connectivity in a wide array of scenarios.
The new slimline PD models are finished in matte black with dark red neon-lit switches. The 1U height takes up half the rack space of previous generation 2U devices.
The PDU16-10DJ range is ideal for numerous installation and integration applications – from live music venues, theatres and studios to clubs, restaurants and bars, plus custom install applications like home automation.
Each of the 10 switchable channels is protected by a thermal current overload trip switch, and each numbered channel has a dedicated rocker switch with a neon indicator light for quick and easy identification, so users can spot immediately whether if a load is present - or not - in both bright and dark light conditions.
Power comes in via a panel mounted C20 socket and is distributed to 10 C13 / IEC outlets.
A thermal overload trip switch cuts the power supply to all sockets if activated, providing the requisite safety standards for general industrial use.
The four standard slimline PD units available from stock via Penn Elcom Online are: the PDU16-10DJ-UK, which offers Type G outlets; the PDU16-10DJ-EU with Type E / outlets; the PDU16-10DJ-US features Type B outlets; and the PDU16-10DJ-AU which is fitted with Type 1.
Each unit is supplied with a 1.8-metre-long power cable, complete with a choice according to country / region.
