UPWR-12 Ultrapower 12 Way PDU (Power Distribution Unit), 12 individually serial controllable IEC outlets RS232 ( Special offer while stocks last )

Rose Ultrapower 12 Port IEC


The UltraPower 12 is a 12 outlet PDU powerstrip that provides an easy way to remotely manage power using RS-232 communications. It enables network administrators to remotely reboot locked devices without the need of sending personnel to site. A common application for the PDU is remote power recycling. Remote site management requires special consideration. All network equipment has the potential to lock up: servers can hang or ‘blue screen’ and often it only takes for the equipment to be re-booted to function again. However, if the equipment is situated remotely, in another building or city or country, then a visit to reboot locked up equipment can be a costly exercise. But perhaps more importantly, it can take more time than the demands of high availability networking can allow. When used with any serial terminal server or one of Rose’s UltraMatrix or UltraConsole switches, control of servers and devices at bios level is supplemented by the ability to cold reboot whilst online. Easy remote IP power control when used with a serial terminal controller, Ultramatrix Remote or Ultralink Units. Configuration Cable Your package contains a configuration cable (DB9 female-to-RJ 6/6). Use this cable to connect the PDU serial port and a dumb terminal or PC for configuration. Any dumb terminal or terminal emulation package, such as Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT HyperTerminal will work fine, providing it is capable of running at up to 9600 baud. Alternatively, just connect via a spare KVM port on a Rose switch. System Requirements The PDU will communicate with any device that can emulate a VT100 terminal session, this therefore includes any PC that has a terminal emulation software package installed and also most terminals. The Controllable PDU operates at 9600 baud. Main Control Menu The PDU can be controlled simply using the following table of commands. Control Commands (Normally open relays) SU Sequence Up SD Sequence Down SO Set all OFF immediately ONnn Turn relay nn ON (01-16) OFnn Turn relay nn OFF (01-16) CTnn Set Delat Time nn (0-99 seconds) CA Turn Auto-sequence ON at startup CM Turn Auto-sequence OFF at startup CS Print Current state CP Enter new password (8 char., DEFAULT 8 SPACES) Default Settings The PDU is shipped with the following default settings.
