The PWR-RMT-RBT available from Interworld Electronics is a remote power reboot switch that allows anyone with a web browser to remotely perform Power On/Off or Power Cycle (reboot) functions by accessing the switch.
The PWR-RMT-RBT is a network attached, IP addressed, web controlled AC power switch, access to which is password protected for security; separate passwords can be configured for user and administrator access.
Featuring international standard IEC320 connections, the PWR-RMT-RBT is compatible with power mains worldwide. Installation is simplified with dual Ethernet jacks and a built-in 10/100 switch. By using the internal Ethernet switch, both the PWR-RMT-RBT and the device being power controlled can be daisy-chained on the same Ethernet cable.
The PWR-RMT-RBT remote power reboot switches can be used to switch on, off or reboot any device including routers, servers and kiosks. Alert devices such as sirens, lamps and messaging systems can be switched on or environmental systems such as heaters, coolers and pumps can be remotely controlled using this switch.
The device to be power controlled need not be network attached. Sensitive devices can be secured by keeping them powered off when not in use. Energy consumption can also be reduced by powering down equipment when not required.
In addition to the web browser control, the power switch allows several other means to operate automatically or under computer control.
The Auto-Ping feature allows the reboot switch to automatically detect failed equipment and perform a timed reboot.
The Heartbeat feature, the Auto-Ping in reverse uses a periodic message sent to the PWR-RMT-RBT from a device. When that message is not received, the PWR-RMT-RBT will perform the programmed power control function.
PWR-RMT-RBT can also be controlled directly via messages sent via TCP, enabling programmers to add power control directly to their application and build automated scripts in any language to operate the PWR-RMT-RBT.
