LCD Panel

The LCD panel on the front of the PDU allows you to quickly access information about the PDU and its outlets. When you power on the PDU for the first time, the EnGenius logo will appear, followed by a QR code. You can scan the QR code to access the PDU quick start guide.

To access the Home page, long press the bottom of the control buttons beside the LCD panel. The Home page shows the current PDU usage, including the usage percentage, wattage, electric current, and voltage. The usage percentage is divided into four levels to indicate the overall power consumption status:

  • Green: Low usage.

  • Orange: Moderate high usage.

  • Red: High usage.

  • Dark red: Critical usage.

You can check the usage of each outlet by pressing the upper control button. Pressing the upper control button again will show the usage of the next outlet. The following screenshot shows the Outlet 6 details of an EnGenius switch (the model name is ECS1008P) that is plugged into the PDU.

The next time you power on the LCD panel, the Home page will be displayed automatically.
