This is what I usually buy for rack power lately.

Nothing in it but a circuit breaker and a bunch of outlets. I personally love having convenience outlets on my racks and these give me a bunch.

Looks awesome. If they added a voltage meter to the front, it would be even better. I'm so used to now being able to double check line voltage before flipping the switch, I don't know that I could go without.  Add a current meter too, and it would be epic!

mpja.com has a real good selection of panel-mount digital AC voltmeters, amp meters, and combination volt/amp meters at really good prices:

Wouldn't be hard to put a voltmeter or three in a single space blank. Could do all kinds of other displays too. Temp, fan speed, amperage, etc.

Of course it's not hard to add a meter, but factoring in labor to do it, it would be much cheaper if the manufacturer just did it when it was being made!

At least QSC puts stuff inside their amps :)

Figured better to share this here than starting a new thread, but opened up a CX254 for some cleaning the other day and took a smidge of video.
