The PDU is IP addressable, so using a browser each outlet can be independently turned ON/OFF or cycled for power-on reset. The IP Power can also be controlled over the serial port when connected to an Opengear console server.
The IP Power is generally connected to the 10/100 local network and controlled using a standard web browser. Once the security login is approved, power at each of the outlets is controlled with a simple click in the browser.
Servers and network devices at local and remote sites can be rebooted - saving time and the cost of a remote site visit. Configurable timer options allow you to schedule powering remote appliances off and on. These schedules can be reprogrammed at any stage locally or remotely.
Each outlet can supply up to 6A of 120VAC or 250VAC power, using standard IEC 320 Inlet/Outlet power connectors. The power status is clearly displayed on the front panel and each outlet can also be manually controlled from there. No complexity. No software skill required.
Console server power control The Opengear console server integrates tools to monitor and control the widest selection of power devices (including IP Power PDUs). So when coupled with a console server the IP Power solution enables system administrators, network manager and Help Desks to monitor and fully control all the computers, routers, switches and devices in their branch offices and distributed customer sites.
Remote out of band access A console server can be remotely accessed in-band or out-of-band through an external modem. All these connections are secure using robust encryption and a selection of filtering and logging facilities. So in event a recalcitrant firewall, switch or management server prevents regular broadband access at the remote site, the console server can still be accessed out-of-band ... and through it, the IP Power can power cycle the recalcitrant device.
Hotkey power cycling Opengear console servers provide hotkey support for thousands of PDUs (including the IP Power). Imagine yourself having out of band access to a dead communications device that is entirely locked up in a frozen condition ... simply hotkey via SSH or telnet to launch our power menu to check power status, power cycle, turn off or on.
