ePowerSwitch 1XS


The ePowerSwitch 1XS offers numerous expansion options for all ePowerSwitch master devices and the VizioGuard system. 1 IEC320 power outlet is available which can be switched individually or as a group.

The xBus connection (standard RJ45) ensures the extension (ePowerSwitch 8XS, more ePowerSwitch 1XS, etc.) of the system up to 16 IEC320 power outlets. With the DIP switch on the front easy configuration and termination of a cascade is made possible.

The device and the power outlets are operated by an ePowerSwitch Master or through a KVM switch.

Power Distribution

Each network switch can be switched on/off and restarted via IP. This can be done by the web interface, a KVM switch, SNMP, or any serial interface. The sequential on and off switching of each outlet prevents resulting peak loads within the IT environment.

The power outlets 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.


Device Monitoring
The monitoring of connected devices is realized through the use of an 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. The combination of the Neol ePowerSwitch and VizioGuard products is possible.

Selective integrations of individual devices are possible with the ePowerSwitch 1XS. Further devices can be monitored additionally (eg. a server in a remote infrastructure) when added into the control this way.

Environmental Monitoring
The ePowerSwitch 1XS mainly allows the cascading of power outlets as a Satellite system. Up to 4 sensors and detectors can be connected using standard CAT cable, if it is connected to a master device. The transmission of signals is fully digital and the maximum range is up to 200m. The use of an existing cable infrastructure is easily assured. The inputs can be used in definable rules to trigger automatically any appropriate emergency actions.

Sensors and detectors can be flexibly combined and placed at any desired location in the surveillance area. For example, the optimization of a larger demilitarized zone (eg. hotspots in the air-conditioned area) is possible with only a little effort.


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

All current ePowerSwitch devices use a nonce (cryptographic nonce) and a hash function for authentication so the access cannot be reconstructed or manipulated. To support fully encrypted transmission of data corresponding devices are available (eg. ePowerSwitch 8XM+/32 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. With the ePowerSwitch 1XS it is possible to create any groups. Connected expansion devices (for example, additional ePowerSwitch 1XS) are captured and managed too. The number of power outlets within the group is arbitrary.

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 outlets but also groups will be turned on/off at defined times. It is also possible to automatically send an e-mail, SNMP traps and syslog messages with the scheduler. By using an internet connection the option to trigger an action on remote ePowerSwitch devices is given.

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.
