Safety and Grounding Read the following information before installing or operating your APC Power Distribution Unit (PDU): • The PDU is intended only for use with four-wire grounded connections on APC Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs). Do not plug the PDU into an electrical outlet or other device. • This PDU is intended for indoor use only. • Do not install this PDU where excessive moisture or heat is present. • Never install any wiring, equipment, or PDUs during a lightning storm.
How to Shorten the Power Cord Only certified electricians can perform the following procedure. Warning Plug layout Remove the plug Cord sleeve Strain relief Plug case Plug face 1. Loosen, but do not remove, the four captive screws from the plug face until it is detatched from the plug. 2. Loosen, but do not remove, the four screws from the sides of the plug until the cord easily slides in and out. 3. Slide the plug case down the cord to your desired length.
How to Shorten the Power Cord Cut the cord 1. Cut the outer cord sleeve to the desired length. Be careful not to cut through the four wire bundles. The cord must remain at least 4.9 feet (58.8 inches) long from unit to end. Remove the cut sleeve from the wire bundles. 2. Cut each wire bundle, making sure each is approximately 1.5 inches from the end of the cord sleeve. 3. Strip approximately 0.5 inches of insulation from each wire bundle. Reassemble the plug 1. Twist together any loose wires. 2.
How to Shorten the Power Cord Test the plug for AP7580 or AP7583 For AP7580, verify that all circuit breakers are in the ON position. Note Use a multimeter and the following graphics to verify continuity between the test points on the AP7580 or AP7583. Continuity is achieved with a measurement of less than or equal to 1 Ohm.
How to Shorten the Power Cord Test the plug for AP7581 or AP7584 For AP7581, verify that all circuit breakers are in the ON position. Note Use a multimeter and the following graphics to verify continuity between the test points on the AP7581 or AP7584. Continuity is achieved with a measurement of less than or equal to 1 Ohm. Use the probes of the multimeter to verify continuity between the following points on the plug prongs and the slots on the outlets: • X ([) on the plug and X ([) on the outlet • Y (\
How to Shorten the Power Cord Test the plug for AP7582 Verify that all circuit breakers are in the ON position. Note Use a multimeter and the following graphics to verify continuity between the test points on the AP7582. Continuity is achieved with a measurement of less than or equal to 1 Ohm.
How to Install the PDU Mounting options Install the PDU in the bottom 2U of a NetShelter® or any standard 19-inch EIA-310-D rack or enclosure, using the mounting brackets (provided). The PDU can be installed in one of two ways, with the outlets facing out of the rack or toward the roof of the rack. Note The PDU is intended only for use with an APC UPS. Do not plug it into an electrical outlet or another device. Note Bracket-mounting 1.
How to Install the PDU 2. Choose a location for the PDU. The PDU occupies two U-spaces. The numbers on the enclosure’s vertical rail denote the middle of a U-space. Note 2U a. Insert a caged nut (provided with the enclosure) above and below a notched hole on each vertical mounting rail in your chosen location. b. Align the mounting holes of the brackets with the installed caged nuts. Insert and tighten the screws. Connect to an APC UPS 1.
