I am also looking for a way to measure other devices than computers
and I want to collect this information to the centos server. But I
guess it doesn't matter what kind of device I connect to the PDU, it
still can measure its power consumption and report it somehow?

Can you recommend any cheap model? I was aware of these PDU's
existing, but I haven't really considered them as they probably are
quite expensive as they do also many other things (monitor the load of
the server etc)...
