UL 60950 PDU plugging into a UL 1778 UPS

Discussion created by Matt Burkle on Aug 18, 2016

I know that RPT (Relocatable Power Tap) units (power strips) have to be plugged into a permanent receptacle per this link.

NFPA 1:  Electrical Fire Safety and Relocatable Power Taps (power strips), #FireCodeFridays

 

However, what is the policy for connecting a PDU (Power Distribution Unit) UL 60950 to a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) that UL 1778?  I can't find anything specific in the documents that address this.  Basically I have an application where I need more receptacles than the UPS has so I want to deploy a PDU to address the issue.
