I've got a local network rack with:
- 24 port switch
- 2x voip dect bases
- 2x modems
- 1x load balancing router
- 1x wifi access point
- 1x 2bay Synology nas
At the moment these are all powered via 2x 1U 6 socket surge protected PDUs.
I want to add a UPS into the rack but the ones I was looking at in terms of power / battery output only have 4 power ports on the back. Can I plug the PDUs into the UPS to get around that or would that cause an issue?
The reason I ask is because I've heard that if you daisy chain 2 surge protected extension cords you negate the surge protection, so I was wondering if I plugged the PDU into the UPS if it would have a similar effect?
