Spectrum Power

AC Switched Power Distribution Unit

The AC SMARTStart® is a multifunctional AC power distribution unit designed to control eight AC loads and monitor vital parameters. This product is available in 15 Amp, 16 Amp, and 20 Amp total load capacity models. In addition, we offer output configurations that use screw clamp terminal blocks, in lieu of IEC or NEMA connectors, for industrial applications.

All models have the ability to power-on or power-off any or all loads in any sequence over a wide range of time intervals. The PDU automatically sequences each output. This significantly reduces the total inrush current and limits the possibility of equipment damage due to the combined turn-on transient of several loads. The sequence order and delay is user defined at setup.

  • Output Sequencing
  • Remote Reboot
  • Power Monitoring
  • Remote Operation and control capabilities via Telnet or Web interface
  • Emergency Power Off (EPO) Configuration available
  • Optional Front Or Center Mounting Brackets For Variable Installation
  • Output configurations offered using screw clamp terminal blocks in lieu of IEC or NEMA connectors
