Basic PDU units are available from many different manufacturers, but there are a few that include more functionality than the rest. The Remote Power Switch AC can have both PDU and RTU functionalities in only one metal box.
The PDU functionality allows you to control power, while the RTU capabilities allow you to monitor discrete and analog alarm data from your important equipment.
For added environmental visibility, this rack-mounted power distribution unit also monitors the internal and external temperature, as well as current draw for each input power. This is especially critical at your unmanned sites, where you need to detect and respond to network issues remotely.
Discrete alarms: 16
Internal Temp Sensor: 1
There are specific specifications for this PDU, but some build options are available:
Build Options for the Remote Power Switch DC: 8 OR 16 DC power inputs / outputs
50-pin Amphenol connector for 16 discretes, 4 analogs, and 2 controls
33.6 Telco modem for backup remote access
1 RS485 expansion port for daisy-chaining additional switches
1-Wire jack (RJ11) for external temp probe
1 Internal temp sensor
A 66 block is a simple way to use wire-wrap connections with DPS RTUs. When telcos really want connections to stay in place, they use wire wrap. You'll simply punch down your alarm, analog, and/or control relay wiring to the 66 block, then connect the 66 block to the RTU using a standard amphenol cable (also available from DPS).
