New from Gude Systems: Switched and metered PDU with Integrated Over Voltage Protection

News / 25.01.22

The new Power Distribution Unit (PDU) from GUDE allows control, energy measurement and monitoring of up to 21 connected devices with AC and DC voltage. 

With the Expert Power Control 8291-1, GUDE Systems GmbH presents a power distribution system that can be used in professional installations with direct current (DC) voltage requirements. The switchable LAN socket allows the connection of up to 21 AV and IT devices. Four different voltages can be operated: 17 switchable load outlets with DC voltages of 24 V, 12 V and 5 V and 4 switchable load outlets of 230 V (AC.).

Due to the different connections on the back of the device (IEC C13, terminal clamp and USB type A) and the different supply voltages, a large number of AV and IT consumers can be connected. The integrated industrial power supply makes the often unreliable plug-in power supplies of the end devices superfluous, but thanks to its compact design in a stable metal housing, the PDU occupies only one height unit in 19-inch cabinets.

Pick your choice of connectors and voltages for your AV devices. 


Once in operation, users benefit from the following advantages with the AC/DC power distributor:

• Switching network or media technology devices through media controls of well-known AV manufacturers (Atlona, Barco, Crestron, Extron, Savant)
• Restart PCs, servers, routers, and switches remotely
• Reduce power consumption of standby devices through schedule control
• Network monitoring through integration with monitoring software (PRTG, Icinga, Nagios, Power IQ, Tivoli)
• Switch and control servers and IT equipment in server rooms and data centers
• Environmental monitoring by connected sensors (temperature, humidity and air pressure)

• AV environments: huddle rooms, conference rooms, theaters, auditoriums, LED walls or digital signage systems
• IT installations: Engineering rooms, data centers, 19 "cabinets or server rooms
• Industrial environments: Production facilities, warehouses or workshops
