Tripp Lite Switched, Metered Rack Power Distribution Units enable a variety of advanced network control and monitoring functions by giving IT Managers the ability to turn on, turn off, recycle or lock-out power to each individual receptacle and remotely monitor PDU power consumption and in-rack environmental conditions. Switched PDU systems can be accessed, configured and controlled through secure web, SNMP or Telnet Interface. Individually switched outlets can be controlled via a built-in web/network interface, enabling remote reboot of unresponsive network hardware. User defined power-up and power-down outlet sequences ensure proper operation of interdependent IT systems and prevent inrush-related overloads as devices are powered on. Programmable load-shedding of less critical devices at user-defined intervals extends UPS uptime in response to power failures. Unused PDU outlets can be electronically locked-off to prevent powering of unauthorized hardware. PDU power consumption (current) is displayed locally and can be monitored via the web/network interface, with user-defined alarms to warn of potential overloads before critical IT mains or branch breakers trip. Optional ENVIROSENSE temperature/humidity probe enables remote monitoring of in-rack environmental conditions and alarms for up to 3 user supplied contact-closure sensors. Supports real-time
This review is from: Tripp Lite PDUMH30HVNET Switched, Metered 2U 208/240V 30A 10 ft Switched, Metered PDU with Remote Monitoring
Pros: It works good as a PDU, not so good as a switchable PDU.
Cons: So after about 6 months of use, about 6 outlets will no longer switch off. It seems you might get cycle an outlet less than a half dozen times before it will no longer switch off. I went out of my way to get a switched PDU just for this functionality, but I am sadly disappointed. I cannot speak for other brands yet, but I would stay away from TrippLite if switchable outlets is a feature you are looking for.
