This manual is intended to assist in the installation and setup of NSM PDU’s. It is recommended that the user follow all safety guidelines and installation instructions.
PDU Safety Guidelines
Read the following before installing or operating the Power Distribution Units (PDU). Failure to do so may result in death or serious injury.
- Electrical Hazard: This PDU contains high voltages. Authorized service providers should only perform repairs and service to this PDU. This includes installation, testing and maintenance of internal and external parts.
- The PDU must be plugged into a three-wire, grounded outlet on a circuit that is protected by a fuse or circuit breaker.
- For our Basic PDU please use a 30A circuit protector.
- Connection to any other type of power outlet may result in a shock hazard.
- If a socket-outlet is not accessible to the equipment, a socket-outlet shall be installed. Test all outlets for proper polarity and grounding.
- Do not use extension cords or adapters with this PDU.
- PDU is intended for indoor use only.
- Never install a PDU or associated wiring or equipment during a
- Do not work alone under hazardous conditions.
- Make sure the utility power outlet is in good condition.
- Ensure that the power cord, plug, and socket are in good condition.
- Make sure the power unit is disconnected before physically mounting or moving the location of this product.
- To prevent the risk of fire or electrocution, this PDU should be installed in a temperature and humidity controlled indoor area free of conductive contaminants. Do not install this PDU where excessive moisture or heat is present.
Basic PDU Electrical Installation
Make all connections to the PDU prior to connecting PDU to power.
Step 1. Turn off breaker for outlet that PDU will be plugged into.
Step 2. Receptacle evaluation: Ensure that the plug type of your PDU unit matches the wall receptacle type that you are using.
Step 3. Attach equipment: It is extremely important not to exceed the PDUs maximum
current load. New School Mining Basic PDU load maximum per plug is: 15 Amps
Step 4. Connect PDU: Plug the PDU into the wall receptacle.
Step 5. Turn on breaker for outlet that PDU was connected to.
DANGER! The PDU must be plugged into a three-wire, grounded wall receptacle only. The wall receptacle must also be connected to an appropriate branch circuit/main with fuse or circuit breaker protection. Connection to any other type of wall receptacle may result in a shock hazard.
Reminder: Turn off breaker for outlet and disconnect the PDU from the power outlet before you install or connect equipment to reduce the risk of electric shock. Reconnect the PDU to the power outlet only after you make all connections.
