Numerous options allow customers to support power needs for most combinations of connected equipment:
* Metered or unmetered;
* 120V or 208V single-phase, or 208V three-phase input voltage
20, 30, or 50 amps;
* Circuit breaker overload protection (20A units also available without circuit breakers);
* Multiple NEMA and IEC plug and receptacle styles;
* 3 to 15-foot cord lengths.

In addition, Leviton Smart Meter Technology adds sophisticated power monitoring, such as: display amps, volts, or watts; auto scroll on 3-phase units displays readings for each load bank and total +/- 2% amp and watt accuracy(+/- 1% voltage accuracy); gravity sensor that detects PDU orientation and auto-inverts display; blue LEDs designed to increase visibility and minimize current needed for display.

Other features include 18-gauge cold-rolled steel construction, DP-rated cords (NEC 645-compliant), mounting kits that support installation in a variety of rack and cabinet applications, labeling kits for outlet and circuit labeling, and a grounding stud.

Each PDU is built to customer specifications, and most configurations ship within three business days. Units can be configured with the assistance of the company's customer service team, or online.
