Power Outlets

Power outlets represent the outlets on a power distribution unit (PDU) or other device that supplies power to dependent devices. Each power port may be assigned a physical type, and may be associated with a specific feed leg (where three-phase power is used) and/or a specific upstream power port. This association can be used to model the distribution of power within a device.

For example, imagine a PDU with one power port which draws from a three-phase feed and 48 power outlets arranged into three banks of 16 outlets each. Outlets 1-16 would be associated with leg A on the port, and outlets 17-32 and 33-48 would be associated with legs B and C, respectively.


Like most device components, power outlets are instantiated automatically from power outlet templates assigned to the selected device type when a device is created.



The device to which this power outlet belongs.


The installed module within the assigned device to which this power outlet belongs (optional).


The name of the power outlet. Must be unique to the parent device.


An alternative physical label identifying the power outlet.


The type of power outlet.

Power Port

When modeling a device which redistributes power from an upstream supply, such as a power distribution unit (PDU), each power outlet should be mapped to the respective power port on the device which supplies power. For example, a 24-outlet PDU may two power ports, each distributing power to 12 of its outlets.

Feed Leg

This field is used to indicate to which leg of three-phase power circuit the outlet is bound. (This should be left blank for single-phase applications.)

Mark Connected

If selected, this component will be treated as if a cable has been connected.
