  • How to Provide a Redundant Path to Control the IPDU-Sx In Case of a Network Failure
    How to Provide a Redundant Path to Control the IPDU-Sx In Case of a Network Failure

    Up to 3 additional IP aliases can be configured to allow remote control of the IPDU-Sx using different networks. This set-up provides a redundant path in case of a network failure. No scripts are required–simply add the IP address, network mask, and gateway configurations through the web interface.


    The first network (default network) will be used for total control of the IPDU-Sx, i.e. inbound and outbound connections. The three other networks will allow web/SSH/telnet access only, i.e. inbound access only. Up to four separate networks can be plugged into a network switch that is linked to the IPDU-Sx to facilitate the configuration.

  • "We received the custom designed IPDU-S8-P15 that is able to send multiple alerts and it works great!

    "I wanted to be able to control the temperature in a box remotely, and be able to edit an action with the temperature sensor. I needed to power ON the AC outlet 1 (a heater will start) if the temperature goes below 10 degree Celsius and to power ON the AC outlet 2 (a fan will start) if the temperature goes above 20 degree Celsius, as well as the ability to edit directly in the web interface.

    Thanks to you and your team, you have done a great job, thanks again!"
