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. For a shorter task, the PDU can take on the power, as long as it has a bit of time to cool down in between uses. A heavy duty custom option is made for extended use without the need for cool down periods.
A shop on the Internet gave me the PDU for a fair price. It was closer to the amount that I had paid for from the local man, but it was brand new. The PDU fit perfectly with my plans and gave me just the amount of power I needed without any problems. A new problem did arise however, when one of my other pieces of equipment decided to stop working. For this, I just went to the local hardware store and found a replacement. It was a good thing I went when I did, because it was the last one in stock.
