CANFORD MDU AC MAINS POWER DISTRIBUTION UNIT - Current metering models

This range of twelve-way, IEC outlet, AC mains power distribution panels are housed in a compact 1U rackmount case. Loop-out feature models, provide an un-switched, direct loop-through power outlet to supply equipment that must remain powered when the MDU is switched off, or to supply to a second MDU. All versions have on the front panel an illuminated current meter, fuses and LED indication of power status for each of the output channels. Switch option models have an illuminated power rocker switch. Inlet, outlets and Earth connection are on the rear panel.

NOTE: Current drawn from the ‘loop-output’ must be included in the total current calculation. Care must be taken not to exceed the maximum total load of the MDU. See tables below for individual units current rating.

The fuses on the front panel have bi-colour LEDs. Green illuminated indicates that the circuit is powered correctly. Red illuminated (green off) indicates that the fuse has failed.

All outputs are numbered front and rear for easy identification and a designation- strip holder with snap-on cover is fitted on the front panel. The paper strips supplied may be inserted before or after installation; 7.5mm of printable height is available. Templates for printing designation strip labels, available as a DWG file for AutoCAD and compatible applications, can be downloaded from the appropriate product page on the Canford website.

Spare designation-strip inserts (not suitable for printers) 45-3082 and spare clear covers 45-3092 are available.
