ePowerSwitch 4

Description

The ePowerSwitch 4 offers numerous usages to control, manage and monitor any device. The configuration of the sockets via the integrated webserver is flexible and comfortable.

The sockets are available for nearly any european standards (SCHUKO, FR, CH). The 19″ device can be installed as required. By using an optional mounting kit, the wall or floor mounting is guaranteed.

 
   
Connection features  
  • Status-LED for all sockets
  • RJ45 connection
  • RS232 connection
  • 4 sockets (SCHUKO, FR, CH)
 

Power Distribution

Each socket can be switched on/off and restarted via IP or RS232 interface. This can be done by the web interface, a KVM switch, SNMP, or any serial interface. They can also be switched single or as individually created group of outlets – including connected expansion units. The sequential on and off switching of each outlet prevents resulting peak loads within the IT environment.

The sockets are equipped with extremely robust HiAmp relay for high inrush currents. Individual delays (1-255 seconds when you next switch, 1-3600 seconds when restarting) can be configured for the switching process.

Monitoring

Device Monitoring
The monitoring of connected devices is realized through the use of a ePowerSwitch Master. It can monitor up to 40 IP addresses with ping or scan commands and send a message (SNMP trap, e-mail, syslog) in case of a crash automatically. If the monitored IP devices are powered by the ePowerSwitch they can be automatically restarted.

With the ePowerSwitch 4 flexible and affordable solutions for power management of servers or other devices are possible. The areas of application are not only limited to the IT environment.

Management

The management and control of the device using the integrated web server through the web browser is quite simple. Moreover, it is possible to send switching commands via a connected KVM switch or a terminal console.

Authentication
All current ePowerSwitch devices use a nonce (cryptographic nonce) and a hash function for authentication so the access can not be reconstructed or manipulated. To support fully encrypted transmission of data corresponding devices are available (eg. ePowerSwitch 8XM or VizioGuard).

User accounts
The administrator can create up to 40 user accounts with different rights via the web interface. Access to the webserver is protected by 32-character user names and passwords. In addition, up to 40 users may simultaneously access the ePowerSwitch and all connected xBus peripherals.

Grouping of power outlets
The grouping of power outlets allows a server with redundant power supplies or multiple devices to be turned on/off with a command sent through a web browser or by SNMP.

Programmable rules
Up to 32 rules can be configured to monitor analog values and digital inputs. Pre-programmed actions will be triggered on alarm state which will switch eg. relay or sockets. Optional e-mails, SNMP traps or syslog messages can be sent.

Timer and scheduler
The device offers the possibility to automatically operate the power outlets by a timer and/or a scheduler function. Individual power poweroutlets but also groups will be turned on/off at defined times. It is also possible to automatically send e-mail, SNMP traps and syslog messages with the scheduler. By using a Internet connection the option to trigger an action on remote ePowerSwitch devices is given.

Designations
Up to 32 characters long names can be set to all devices and sensors connected. This unique identification simplifies the programming of rules, groups and the associated actions.

Online help
An intuitive interface and context-sensitive online help allow administrators to quickly enable various and powerful features of the system. Detailed instructions and explanations are listed in the operating instructions.
