CANFORD MDU2 AC MAINS POWER DISTRIBUTION UNIT Economy - 15x IEC outlet - Powercon inlet with Powercon loop-out

This range of economy, fifteen-way, IEC outlet, AC mains power distribution panels with a 20 amp Powercon inlet and Powercon 'loop-out' outlet, is housed in a compact 1U rackmount steel case. The loop-out feature provides 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, power rocker switch or an un-switched, LED power-present indicator, fuse and bi-colour LED indication of power status for each of the output channels. Inlet and outlets 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.

The fuses on the front panel have an adjacent bi-colour LED. Green illuminated indicates that the circuit is powered correctly. Red illuminated indicates that the fuse has failed.

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.

Standard (MDU2, MDU2S)

The front panel has an illuminated switch or un-switched LED indicator, independent outlet fuses with status indicators. The rear panel has a 20 amp Powercon inlet , 20 amp Powercon 'loop-out' outlet and fifteen 10 amp IEC outlets. An earth stud is fitted.

Features by model

Switched Sequential Filtered

This economy range is only available with Black front panel, with either red or green illuminated switch or 'input power present' LED indicator on the front panel.

Lacing Bars

As IEC cable plugs vary enormously in size and design it is not possible to define a 'universal', wire, connector-retaining clip. To overcome the challenge of securing all IEC connector types both re-wireable and moulded, a single lacing-bar is fitted as standard. The stainless rods may be fitted in a variety of positions to take account of cable connector size. An additional rod may be ordered separately and fitted, which is particularly suitable where connectors of different heights are inserted or where excess cable must be doubled back. An example would be when 'double ended', fixed length, moulded AC mains cords, such as the IEC-Lock types, are used.

Mating connectors are NOT included and should be ordered separately as required.
