Olson Electronics has a vast range of power distribution units available, but sometimes the exact PDU contractors need isn’t listed.

That is where the company’s bespoke service comes in as Olson can create exactly what is needed. These can be from small alterations to standard products such as a different mains plug or a different length of cable, to a fully bespoke PDU with custom metal work and a choice of sockets, switches, circuit breakers, fuses, neon indicators, meters, RF filters and sequential start.

Options include Plugs such as UK 13A (BS1363), IEC 60320 C14 10A, IEC 60320 C20, IEC309 (BS 4343 / Commando) 16A and 32A, USA (Nema 5-15), German, French, Neutrik 20A, Electrak. There is also a choice of cable length and type such as CY and SY braid armoured, low smoke (LSF/LS0H) or flexible conduit. Contractors can also choose to have no main socket at all, so the unit can be permanently wired on site. Sockets wise, combinations can be made up of UK 13A (BS1363), IEC 60320 C13 10A, IEC 60320 C19, IEC309 16A and 32A, USA 15A (Nema 5-15), Schuko 16A (CEE 7/3), French / Belgian 16A (CEE 7/5), USB, Neutrik 20A or Electrak.

Colours can also be chosen from the standard range, anthracite (RAL 7016), light grey (RAL 7035), light honey beige (BS08B17), yellow, orange, red, green, black, and white, however other colours are available at additional cost or at no additional cost for large orders.

Enclosure types can be horizontal, vertical or desk/wall mounted and accessories such as labels, identity strips, cable supports can also be included.

Staying In Touch

Olson has also recently introduced a new customer facing website to enable online ordering for the first time. The site has been designed to be easy to navigate and find what customers want fast and fuss free. The main challenge is proving a navigable overview of what the company does as the range is so large. However, the site deals with this by breaking the choices down into different choices including the socket, plug/inlet, orientation or switching requirement that is needed. The site can filter for an individual range or display all products and provide search from there.

There is also an advanced search to lookup all of the attributes of a PDU needed and display the results. The new bespoke service is also included as users can message the team direct from the site with requirements.

Get all the information on these important new developments on Stand 122B at ED&I.
