Can I use anything besides the APC provided mounting screws to rack mount my Rack PDU or ATS?


Issue

Can I use third party mounting hardware to mount my Rack PDU or ATS in my Rack?


Product Line

Rack PDU Models

  • AP95XX
  • AP7XXX
  • AP8XXX

Rack ATS Models
  • AP77XX

Environment 
  • All installation scenarios 



Cause

Using any other screws can damage the internal wiring of the PDU or ATS and can be potentially dangerous to the end-user. This is noted in the user's manual of all Rack PDU or ATS as seen below.




Resolution

If you use screws other than those provided by APC to mount the Rack PDU or ATS, you will void your warranty. Use only the APC supplied mounting hardware on your device and/or adhere to any warnings on the product about screw lengths if the original hardware is unavailable.
