How do I connect an HP c7000 blade enclosure to a Symmetra LX 16kVA unit?

I have 2 x HP 40A Core Modular Power Distribution Unit 252663-D75 units that must be connected to the Symmetra.

Thanks!

From looking at HP's site this distribution unit's input requirements are: Input: 3.6m Attached Input cord, Non-NEMA Locking CS8265C, 50A. APC does not have any type of receptacle for this plug. You would either need to swap the input plug on the power distribution units to something smaller like a 30 amp plug, ie L6-30. Doing this would in turn downgrade the capacity of the PDU's to 30 amps vs. the 50 amps the device appears to be capable of pulling. I think the best option would be to have someone hardwire the output of the UPS to accomodate for the CS8265C plugs. An electrician can create a distribution panel with whichever outlets you desire to connect other devices as well. This would allow you to take advantage of the full capacity of your PDU's.
