The ENVIROMUX® Secure Remote Power Control Unit allows you to remotely reboot and control power (on/off) to two servers or other powered devices from any location via secure web interface, RS232, SSH, or Telnet.

The ENVIROMUX® Secure Remote Power Control Unit allows you to remotely reboot and control power (on/off) to two servers or other powered devices from any location via secure web interface, RS232, SSH, or Telnet.

  • Three operating modes for power reboot:
    • Manual – select the outlet and turn the power on/off.
    • Scheduled – set date/time/duration of power cycle.
    • Associated – power on/off a device when a sensor goes out of range of a user-defined threshold, or reboot unresponsive IP devices.
  • Security: HTTPS, SSHv2, SSLv3, IP Filtering, LDAPv3, AES 256-bit encryption, 16-character username/password authentication, user account restricted access rights.
  • Configure, control and monitor the unit via Web interface or Command Line Interface (CLI).
  • Up to 3 additional IP aliases can be configured to allow remote control of the unit using different networks.
    • No scripts 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 unit, 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 unit to facilitate the configuration.
  • Supports two environmental sensors, including: temperature/humidity and water detection.
    • Shut down power when high temperature and other environmental threats are detected.
  • Monitor (ping) up to eight IP network devices.
  • Sends alert notifications via email, syslog, LEDs, Web page, and SNMP.
  • Automatically configures network settings received from a connected DHCP server.
    • If a DHCP server is not found, the default static IP address will be used.
  • Integrates with various Open Source monitoring packages - Nagios and MRTG.
    • The unit can be polled via SNMP.
  • Meets the electrostatic discharge (ESD) immunity requirements of IEC/EN 61000-4-2
  • Features Normally Open (NO) relay contacts.
Power
  • 90 to 250 VAC at 50 to 60 Hz.
  • Input Connector: IEC 320-C14 inlet
  • Output Connectors: IEC 320-C13 outlets

    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.
