By replacing the space wasting cabinets that offices are currently using with the new GE Edge Cabinet Power Distribution Unit (PDU) The back of the cabinet can be used for the rectifiers, which can be directly integrated into the available slots on the Power Distribution Unit (PDU) allowing employees to have a manageable and tidy work area.

When an employee cannot focus on their work due to a distraction then it should be remedied. That is why the GE Edge Cabinet Power Distribution Unit (PDU) is a perfect solution.
