ePowerSwitch 4 IEC


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

The main field of application are server racks and patch panels. Through the power outlet on the front panel any PC or server may be included in the monitoring at any time.

Connection features  
  • Status-LED for all ports
  • RJ45 connection
  • RS232 connection
  • 4 IEC320 outlets
  • 1 IEC320 input

Power Distribution

Each power outlet 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. 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.

With the ePowerSwitch 4 IEC flexible and affordable solutions for power management of servers or other devices are possible. Commissioning and configuration of the connected devices is done in few minutes. The areas of application are not only limited to the IT environment.


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.

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.

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.

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.
