Bypass PDU Recommended for Maintaining Continuous Power During UPS Maintenance
Keeping mission-critical data center equipment operating at its optimal level often means scheduled maintenance. But what if you are unable to afford the costly downtime involved in powering down for regular upkeep? This 200–250V 16A single-phase hot-swap rack PDU (rPDU) works in conjunction with your UPS system to keep everything running 24/7/365. It allows you to manually transfer connected equipment to utility power via the PDU’s bypass switch, permitting maintenance or equipment replacement with no interruption of performance.

Features Dual Inputs and a Manual Transfer Switch for Uninterrupted Operation
The PDUBHV201U features two C20 inlets that connect to separate UPS and utility input power sources with user-supplied power cables or the included C19-to-C20 cables. The manual transfer switch allows PDU output power to flow from either input. Flip the switch to Bypass to replace the UPS and flip back to Normal once the maintenance or UPS replacement is complete. Equipment connected to the outlets will continue to operate without interruption.

Optional ECO Switching Feature Enables Cost-Cutting Power Savings
By enabling the ECO power saving feature, you can power off a single bank of four controlled C13 outlets all at once when the devices connected to the master C13 and C19 outlets are powered off or go into a low-power consumption mode. 

Mounts into 1U of Rack Space or on a Wall
Use the included mounting hardware to install the PDUBHV201U’s all-metal housing into 1U of space in an EIA-standard 19-inch rack. You may also use the mounting brackets to secure the PDU to a wall.
