The Minuteman RPM1521 Remote Power Manager is, in essence, an IP-addressable power distribution unit (PDU) that can be monitored and managed over the network. It features an RJ-45 Ethernet port for connection to the network, and two AC outlets for powering two devices such as servers, switches, routers, modems, and telephone systems. Once connected to the network, you can easily control it from virtually anywhere on your PC, tablet or smartphone using a standard web browser and your password. With a simple click, power up, down, or reboot 1-2 devices connected to the RPM individually or as a group. It also supports automatic reboots of locked devices via ping actions, and scheduled shutdown and startup to save power. Notifications via SNMP, SMS text, or email keep you informed when power events have occurred. You'll achieved enhanced productivity and saved time and cost by eliminating help desk calls and the need of running around the facilities. Plus, with 1200 joules surge protection built in, you can rest assured knowing all the connected devices are safe when damaging power abnormalities strike.
Remote Access The RPM is an IP-addressable PDU that allows administrators and technicians to remotely control the power to connected servers, network equipment, and security devices, eliminating the need for wasteful service calls to reboot locked devices.
Control Each AC power outlet can be independently switched ON/OFF, power cycled for immediate reboots, or rebooted with timed delays, additionally power cycle sequencing with assigned priority, and power event scheduling can be set. This model supports power start sequencing to prevent all of the connected devices from starting simultaneously, thus limiting the in-rush current to the RPM. One-time or recurring (daily, weekly, monthly or yearly) power operations on a specific outlet can be configured via web setup.
Monitoring Auto-Ping feature monitors and auto-detects any failed network equipment and performs a timed reboot. You can also view combined current draw on the RPM in real time, and configure warning and overload thresholds.
Notification To keep you informed of events such as a server shutdown, the RPM can submit its notifications via network broadcast, SMS text message, or email to up to three addresses.
Protection 1200 joules surge protection eliminates disrupting and damaging effects of momentary voltage spikes or impulses from power transients. The input circuit breaker provides overload and connected equipment protection. A manual power ON/OFF button completely powers down the RPM1521, which is also a resettable breaker for overload/short circuit protection.
Security IP filter/mask function helps manage user privileges and prevent unauthorized access to the control menu through the network.
