I have a home server setup that is drawing 20.5A from a dedicated 30A line. The power is supplied via a PDU rated for 30A (240V). The PDU's plug runs a bit hot, and I'm nervous if it would be safe to use this setup.
Here're some facts:
- The PDU has L6-30P plug. It's temp is stable at 65°C.
- The server room's ambient temperature is about 35°C.
- The supply wire (10 AWG) or the rest of the PDU's cord isn't that hot (about 40°C).
Is it a good idea to keep this setup? Or should I split the load to another PDU on a separate line?
