Network equipment sometimes "locks-up" requiring a servicecall to a remote site just to flip the power switch to perform a simplereboot. The NPS network power Switch gives network administrators theability to perform this function from anywhere on the LAN/WAN, or if thenetwork is down, to simply dial-in from a standard external modem forout-of-band power control.
Intelligent Power Control
The NPS-115 can be controlled over any TCP/IP network using generic Telnet, or out-of-band by using an external modem and basic VT100 type terminal emulation. Each independent outlet can be switched ON, OFF or Booted (OFF-delay-ON). Each outlet can also be assigned an individual password, device name, reboot delay time and unique power-up default state.
Security and Co-Location Features
The NPS unit employs address-specific IP security authorization to preventunauthorized sources from entering the NPS command mode. Two levels ofoperational passwords are also available; the system administrator level,and individual user level. The user-level security features are ideal forco-location applications where multiple users may be allowed plug-specificaccess to the NPS unit.
Dual Power Bus Flexibility
The NPS-115 is equipped with two separate 15 Amp power circuits. Each bushas it's own source AC inlet, circuit breaker and 4 switched outlets. Thisallows for switching redundant A/B power supplies or switching devices with high current requirements.
