Remote Power Reboot for Cisco Nexus 7000

Remote Power Reboot for Cisco NEXUS 7010 Switch

The VMR-HD series is designed to deliver redundant & controlled power to Cisco NEXUS 7000 LAN switches and other high amp devices.

When your Cisco Nexus 7000 requires a hard boot after a lock-up or reset, you can remotely reboot or cycle power to all power supplies from anywhere!

When your Cisco Nexus 7000 is connected to the VMR's 20 Amp IEC C-19 outlets, you can remotely control power reboot and switching functions for the Nexus, and also measure power consumption, and generate reports via web GUI, data export or polling.

The VMR-HD is available in dual 16, 20, 30 and 32 Amp configurations, as described in the table below:


Model No. Power Inlets Voltage Circuit Breakers Outlets
(2) 16 Amp 200V - 240V AC (4) 16 Amp (4) IEC C19
(2) 20 Amp 100V - 240V AC (4) 20 Amp (4) IEC C19
(2) 30 Amp 200V - 240V AC (4) 20 Amp (4) IEC C19
(2) 32 Amp 200V - 240V AC (4) 16 Amp (4) IEC C19
(2) 30 Amp 200V - 240V AC (6) 20 Amp (12) IEC C19
(2) 32 Amp 200V - 240V AC (6) 16 Amp (12) IEC C19


The VMR-HD series features dual 30 Amp inputs, switched IEC C19 outlets and 20 Amp UL-489 circuit breakers. Each circuit breaker protects one IEC C19 outlet and will support up to 20 Amps. The VMR-HD is ideal for remote power control and management of Cisco Nexus Switches, Cisco Catalyst LAN Switches, Cisco Data Center Switches, Sun Blade 6000 Chassis, HP BladeSystem Enclosures and other high-amp equipment.

Advanced power metering capabilities allow the VMR-HD to measure and report Kilowatt Hours, Kilowatts, Amps, Voltage and Temperature. When any of these factors exceed threshold values, the VMR can switch or reboot power and promptly send notification. In addition to its many alarm functions, the VMR can also perform remote reboots and power shutdowns on individual outlets according to a user-defined schedule, when a ping command fails or on demand.

Energy consumption data from your IT equipment can be individually assessed at each VMR outlet and used for billing, heat calculation and load distribution. The VMR's intelligent, feature-rich design allows you to meter, report and control total current, power and energy consumption in your rack, cabinet or remote site. This provides the perfect solution for data centers striving for reduced energy costs and LEED certification.

The VMR can be configured and operated via its convenient IP web browser interface or by any SNMP MIB based enterprise management software.

Other High Amp Applications:

The VMR-HD Series is ideal for high amp power control applications, such as rebooting blade servers, firewalls, routers, switches and other devices, as described in the following examples:


Remote Power Reboot for Cisco Catalyst 6500

Remote Power Reboot for Cisco Catalyst 6500

In this example, the VMR-HD4D20 is used to remotely reboot or power down a Cisco Catalyst 6500 switch. The VMR's four outlet metered & switched, 20 Amp IEC C-19 outlets are used to provide power control for the Cisco Catalyst. In addition to controlling power, the VMR can also measure power consumption by the Cisco switch, and report results in chart or text format. The VMR-HD is also compatible with Cisco EnergyWise.


Power Management for HP C7000 Blade Servers

Power Management for HP C7000 Blade Servers

The VMR-HD4D30 is the perfect tool for controlling 200 to 240V AC power to a Hewlett Packard C7000 Blade Server. The VMR includes two separate power buses; this makes the VMR particularly well suited for devices such as the HP C7000 that require power supply redundancy. Each power bus is split into two, individually breakered circuits; each circuit includes one switched 16 Amp IEC C19 outlet, for a total of four outlets (two outlets per breaker, two breakers per bus.) The VMR-HD4D30 can also remotely reboot or power down the HP C7000 Blade Server, monitor power consumption, temperature and other factors, and generate alarm notification when critical events are detected.


Measuring and Controlling Power to Sun Blade 6000 Servers

Measuring and Controlling Power to Sun Blade 6000 Servers

The VMR-HD4D30 is well suited for controlling power and reboot functions for Sun Blade 6000 servers. In addition to power control and reboot functions, the VMR-HD also provides the ability to meter energy use by the Sun Blade 6000 and report findings in text or graph format; a very valuable tool for those who need to track power use and energy costs. The VMR's four switched, 20 Amp IEC C-19 outlets are used to provide power control for the Sun Blade 6000.
