The ones I used were from APC and are under the product line of Metered Rack PDU, u can find them on the apc website. Here are a few product numbers from that line(APC7800,801,802) they all have web, snmp (u can graph with MRTG, or whatever), Telnet access, etc.. they start at about 300USD from what I've seen.

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)...
