The APS-01 Access Power Switch controls AC power to any remote equipment. When used with the DCB Access Switch, it allows the equipment to be turned on, off, and power cycled from any remote PC or terminal. When used with the DCB router, it allows the equipment to be turned on, off, and power cycled from any remote PC web browser. Easy Access Switch configuration provides options for power cycle delay time, sequencing of multiple power modules, normally on or off conditions, and control of any number of AC devices from one to 152 using larger Acess Switch systems.
The APS-01 contains fail-safe circuitry and the ability to read power status remotely. It provides the controlling device with status information on whether its controlled device has AC power available and reports the status of its internal switch. In the event the controlling Access Switch is disconnected, the APS-01 “fails” with power on to its controlled device, protecting file servers and communications equipment from power disruption caused by wiring changes and equipment replacements.
The DCB Access Switch allows RS-232 control and remote power control modules (APS-01) to be mixed on the same incoming remote control modem. The system (containing an APS-01 and an Access Switch may also be connected to a LAN using the AS-LAN Ethernet Interface to allow RS-232 and remote power control via multiple routes, including LAN/WAN telnet, local terminal, and out-of-band modem.
When combined with the IP-6600 router, remote power control is just a click away using the IP-6600 router’s management web browser screens, one can power on, power off, or reboot any AC powered equipment remotely.
When used alone (without the Access Switch or DCB router), the APS-01 switches AC power based upon the state of its RS-232 control leads. There is no ASCII command capability, and no API available for computer control. The control is performed by changing the RS-232 control lead status (which may be wired to RTS, CD, etc) of an attached controlling RS-232 device.
This power controller switches the power based upon the state of RS-232 Control Leads. If you need a similar unit that switches based upon ASCII commands (such as ON, OFF, CYCLE), order the SPS-01 power controller.
One AC power port
One RS-232 control port
Connector: RJ-45 (8-wire)
Control Input: Pin 2 input +5 to +12 VDC for device on, -5 to -12 VDC for device off
Device Present: Ties pin 1 and pin 8 together to indicate APS present
Status: Pin 3 ties to pin 1 when device is on and powered
One port 120 VAC, 10 amp continuous
230 VAC, export model available
Fail-safe on when RS-232 port disconnected
AC Power on
Load Power on
These commands are only available when the APS-01 is used in conjunction with a DCB Access Switch (APS-04, etc). Where used with DCB routers (IP-9600, etc.), a web screen in the normal router user interface contains click buttons for similar functions. If the APS-01 is used with non-DCB equipment, the power control and status are only avaialable via the RS-232 control signals described above in the Control Input section.
