I have a 200 amp single phase service setup just for mining and was wondering what PDU would be recommended for setting up 20 Antminers S2.

IMHO go with whatever you find cheapest. My two suggestions:

1) L6-30 outlets and PDU. 30A gives you about 5kW of safely usable power. i suggest buying the outlets ($50 new) on ebay for <$20.

2) use regular 120V components but swap a neutral for a hot. Its the absolute cheapest and easiest way and is safe for hardware (not sure if its safe for a surge protector?). However, this is very much against code. if someone plugged in a 120V appliance not knowing it was a 208V circuit they would explode. or whatever happens when a basic 120V appliance is extremely overloaded in a split second...

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461 also selling 6" M-F-M PCIe splitters and PCIe-PCIe
No longer a wannabe - now an ASIC owner!

For 120v I'm using Web Power Switch and Ethernet Power Controller II from http://www.digital-loggers.com/

For 240v I'm using an APC 7911A.

These are all switched/metered.  You'll save a bundle if you don't need management features.


OP, you mentioned PDU.  For 20 OC'd antminers, you're going to need PDUs - plural.
