Connect to a Network

A major benefit of having our engineers handle tech support is customer feedback quickly turns into product improvements. 

In legacy PDUs, a recurring theme for tech support is helping users determine the PDU's dynamically assigned IP address. SynLink PDUs were designed to address this issue by displaying the assigned IP on the front panel.

Choose between DHCP and STATIC assignment with a few button presses.

Buttons with dynamic functionality make it easy to set an IPV4 static IP address.
