Power Distribution Unit cables are essential for keeping your home or business data center operating at optimal capacity. Cables.com stocks a broad range of PDU power cables for numerous data center applications, and we're confident that we have the right one for you. 

Whether you're shopping for your office suite or just looking to power up your home network, having the right power cable is essential. Are you running your business from your home garage, or managing servers halfway across the world? Whatever the size of your data center, you can rely on Cables.com for the right cables for your operation.

But what exactly is a data center? In short, a data center is a site responsible for storing and sharing the applications and data that make up an organization's lifeblood - that is, its data infrastructure. Without this essential location and its operations, key day to day functions would be impossible. It makes no difference if your business outsources data storage and processing, hosts external websites, or has built a data center or centers from the ground up - the data management infrastructure inside the building is every bit as important as integrated building systems, such as power, cooling, and fire protection.  You simply can't afford to have your data center running off of anything less than the very best equipment, and that includes your power cables. That’s where Cables.com comes in.

PDU Power Cables

When it comes to data center applications, IEC320 power cables are meant primarily for connecting a PDU (power distribution unit) and a server. An IEC connector refers to a type of cable that meets the International Electrotechnical Commission standards. These cables typically consist of a "male end" with a C14 or C20 plug partnered with a "female end," commonly a C13, C15, or C19 plug. The cables you'll find on Cables.com are all UL listed, meaning that they've been tested by UL Solutions and found to meet all requirements for data center functions. 

The cables and cords you choose for your data center will determine how well it runs, so it's important to source them from reliable sellers like Cables.com. Cables.com stocks the Datacomm cables you can rely on for your network. Starting with the basics: your power cords. You'll need a sturdy connection between your server and your PDU, so take a look at our C14 to C15 PDU to Server 15 Amp Power Cord. The equipment end of this power cable features a thick-insulated IEC320 C15 female connector, while the supply end is fitted with a securely-sleeved IEC320 C14 male plug.

Another good example of this would be our C20 to C21 PDU Power Cord. It features a 20 Amp rated jacket for optimal performance under critical conditions, and can manage up to 250 volts for proper load handling.

Finally, consider investing in a locking data center cable when you need to secure the power supply to important electrical equipment such as servers and computers. The "locking" feature is enabled when used with Rack PDUs or IT equipment. These locking connectors reduce the probability of accidentally disconnecting cords and causing power to be cut from vital components. Our locking C19 to C20 power cords will fit into any standard IEC receptacle or power inlet.

We offer the standard 18 AWG, 10 amp, 250 volt cables in a variety of colors as well as angled plugs and connectors for easier use in cramped, tight spaces where you might expect your cable to have to share room.
