The APC by Schneider Electric NetShelter APDU9000 Series Switched Rack Power Distribution Unit (PDU) may be used as a stand-alone, network manageable power distribution device or up to 32 devices can be connected together using one network connection. The Rack PDU provides real-time remote monitoring of connected loads. User-defined alarms warn of potential circuit overloads. The Rack PDU provides full control over outlets through remote commands and user interface settings.
• Device power, peak power, apparent power, power factor and energy monitoring.
• Phase voltage, current, peak current, power, apparent power and power factor monitoring.
• Bank current and peak current (for models that support breaker banks).
• Configurable alarm thresholds that provide network and visual alarms to help avoid overloaded circuits.
• Various levels of access: Super User, Administrator, Device User, Read-Only, Outlet User, and Network-Only User (These are protected by user name and password requirements).
• Multiple user login feature which allows up to four users to be logged in simultaneously.
• Remote individual outlet control.
• Configurable power On or Off delays.
• Event and data logging. The event log is accessible by Telnet, Secure Co Py (SCP), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Serial connection, or web browser (using HTTPS access with SSL/TLS, or using HTTP access). The data log is accessible by web browser, SCP, or FTP.
• Email notifications for Rack PDU Network Management Card (NMC) system events.
• SNMP traps, Syslog messages, and e-mail notifications based on the severity level or category of the Rack PDU and NMC system event.
• Security protocols for authentication and encryption.
• Network Port Sharing (NPS). Up to 32 APDU9000 Series Rack PDUs can be connected using the In and Out ports so that only one network connection is necessary.
• NPS guest firmware auto-update feature allows the NPS host to automatically pass a firmware update to its connected guests.
• Log files can be downloaded by inserting a USB Flash drive into the USB port on the Display Interface of the Rack PDU.

You must define three TCP/IP settings for the Rack PDU before it can operate on the network.
• The IP address of the Rack PDU
• The subnet mask of the Rack PDU
• The IP address of the default gateway (only needed if you are going off segment)
