For a task that I needed to complete, I had to find a custom PDU, because the one I was using had blown out. The PDU was essential to my plans, and without it, I was stuck doing nothing. I had bought the old PDU from a local man who didn’t need it anymore. The PDU had been in use for some years before I bought it, but it was still in good condition. It lasted a long time, but I suppose nothing lasts forever. There wasn’t anyone else in the area that I could buy a PDU from, so I had to go with the custom route. A custom option is better for me because I need a specific amount of power for the task that I have to do. A regular PDU will only provide a certain level of distribution, which they normally aren’t built to handle for a long period of time.
