Kindly, one way of getting IT load if there are no intelligent pdu is to use the ITOptimize and get the server power consumption directly.
However how can I add this data to my PUE calculator on the IT load section.

Based on some tests I ran this morning I would say its not possible to use ITO to feed power data from sensors to the PUE calculator. My ITO server does not appear as a source for sensor data for PUE.
I assume the power devices upstream from the racks are not monitored?
It is possible to use an ETL import database as the source for power data in addition to using a tool like data center expert. In this case though you'd need to come up with a mechanism to transfer power readings into the import database.
