4-Port Remote Power Switch - Phone Control + Web Control
This premium network-controlled power switch provides remote/central management of AC power distribution through LAN, WAN/Internet or telephone.
It is designed for power tasks such as distant power reboot, equipment power on/off control, web/network administration, power event scheduling, power event alerts.
Other benefits from employing this intelligent power distribution system including:
- reduction of server/data center downtime and labor costs with remote power control.
- remote power source management and power reboot of crashed systems
- network equipment monitoring and power rebooting through auto-ping setup
- real-time power consumption monitoring
- setup of power event alert message sent through emails, SMS text messages or SNMP trap notification
- avoids power surges and UPS overloads by controlling power-on and power-off sequences.
- auto-reboot the failed network devices.
Administrators can control network devices or power equipments from any locations within local network or internet and saves trips of technical personnel. Eliminate service calls, system blackout down time and increase reliability.
Control of Power Ports
Each AC power outlet can be independently powered on, off or power cycle for an immediate reboot, time-delayed reboot and power event scheduling.
Users can have complete control of when and how powered equipments are restored restored with a time delay or scheduled for On/Off shutdowns to conserve energy in the data center.
Designed for high voltage resistance and protection for leakage of electrical currency with 15 Amp total max current output.
Power Control By Web + Phone Keypad + RS232 Console
One major advantage of this remote power is its telephone control function. When networks lock up or no internet connection, users can still control the power switch using the phone keypad to command the connected power devices. Administrators can always gain access to their powered devices by calling into this remote power switch from anywhere in the world.
Other than the Ethernet and PSTN phone line connection, this power controller also offer RS232 console port for using the HyperTerminal protocols to control control power on/off/reboot.
Remote Control Mode
- Web control through intuitive web browser Interface.
- Telephone control through phone keypads with control access.
Local Control Mode
- Master power on/off button allows manual override from the local site.
- Console Control - the built-in RS232 console port can be connected to a local terminal for controlling the switch when network connection not available.
Switch On/Off Powered Device Via Phone
This intelligent power controller is also a telephone-controlled remote AC power switch. Anyone from anywhere in the world can call into this power controller for operation and work through using telephone key pad.
When the network service is down or not available, this smart power controller can still turn power on/off or reboot the connected powered equipments by calling into the power switch for full operation.
Administrator can assign security pass codes to any authorized personnel to have phone control over the the power switch.
This power switch will pick up the phone after a pre-defined number of rings. Entering the pass code on the phone through the keypad after being prompted, users can perform the following 4 tasks:
- Controls the 4 power outlets' operation (ON/OFF or reboot) by pressing "1" from the phone keypad.
- Reports the total electrical current load by pressing "2" from keypad.
- Reports the temperature by press "3" from the keypad.
- Reports the current IP address of the remote power switch by press "4" from the phone keypad.
Each command entry by phone will be confirmed with machine voice to echo back the user's selection and the current outlet power status after entry made.
Detailed Web-Based Control Operation
Its intuitive web control panel provides various important power control functions including remote power scheduling, remote power setting and remote power status report, which can all be accessed via internet or local network:
- Advanced Power Operation Scheduling
This unit can perform power operation at any specific moment or on daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. For instance, users can program the connected power device to be turned on/off or rebooted performed daily at 11:00 AM, weekly on every Sunday at 7:00PM or yearly with specific month, day and time programmed in advanced.
- Arrange Power-Up Or Shutdown Sequence
With Timed Delay
Supports power cycling sequence with priority so each power outlet can be turned on/off or rebooted with timed delay in seconds or minutes to prevent all power devices from starting up simultaneously to cause sudden overloading or dropped loads.
- Auto Ping For Automatic Reboot Of Crashed
The auto-ping function will automatically check the monitored network device's IP address periodically or any public domain address such as 4:4:4:4. Once the network equipment failing to respond the ping request over the user-defined event counts and preset time period, the programmed power action will be executed, which can be a timed reboot and alert email sent.
- Secure User Access Control
This intelligent power switch supports multiple users access with password security. Manager can assign permissions for each user to access all or only the power outlets assigned.
- IP/Mac Filter Protection
This unit also supports firewall function by providing both IP and MAC address filters to prevent unauthorized user from gaining access to the switch and devices connected through the network.

Monitoring Power Load And Device Temperature
As data servers added to the setup, power requirements and heat output are also on the rise. This remote power management unit allows remote monitoring of total amperage draw on power devices connected and the surrounding temperature.
Both the temperature sensor and AC (RMS) electrical current meter are built into this power manager unit so no external sensor probes required. Its intelligent load current meter and temperature monitoring function helps administrators greatly to keep track of total electric current reading from power outlets and device temperature in order to prevent system overload in advance with better power management.
This power solution is SNMP-based so that alerts can be sent automatically by email or SMS text, if SMS server is deployed, to manager when amperage or temperature levels exceed established thresholds.
Multiple Safety Self-Protection
This intelligent power switch provides 3 different system shutdowns for safety measure:
- System Shutdown By Current Overload: this remote power switch will be automatically shut down by its internal circuit breaker for responding to a current overload or short circuit condition.
- System Shutdown By Temperature: ths remote power switch has a temperature sensor built in for detecting the surrounding environment temperature.When the temperature reaches the preset value and lasts for preset time interval, the power switch will be shut down automatically. Also this power switch can be automatically turned back on again after it cools down to preset temperature point.
- System Shutdown By Manual Push Button: A master power on/off button on the switch box itself for local operator to override the remote control mode and take control of this power switch in an emergency.
Power Event Alert Notification
Warning alerts can be programmed to be sent out right after critical power conditions occur so manager can take preventive measures if needed.
Alerts will be sent in response to the following power events:
- Ping failure on the network devices
- Device temperature rising above the preset value
- Electrical short circuit and current overload
The event log can be viewed directly or archived by downloading from the web page in .csv file format and saved into the hard drive.
