    I feel I'm missing something on this one but with only a 16A breaker protecting each bank on a AP8853 what is protecting the 10A rating of each C13 socket?  Or indeed if a device says "fuse at 5A" how does that work when plugged into a PDU like this?

    Thanks for any insight into this

    Other than the bank breakers, the individual outlets on the AP8853 do not have additional protection, apart from the requirements that apply to C13/C14 connectors and cables. C13/C14 connectors/cables are standardized at 10A so devices with a C14 input connection would not pull a higher than 10A current.

    A device that says "fused at 5A" typically has a 5A fuse built into its power supply circuit to limit its maximum current draw to 5A.
