Expert Power Control 1292 Series

4-fold switched PDU with integrated current metering for GSM and TCP/IP networks

Expert Power Control 1292 Series enables switching and metering of electrical appliances through TCP/IP or mobile device app. Thanks to GSM connectivity, it is also possible to control and monitor the connected consumers out-of-band, i.e. via a redundant communication channel. The device disposes of four load outlets (max. 16 A). These Power Ports are individually switchable through GSM, web interface, serial interface, SNMP or a button directly on the device. Moreover connected IT devices can be switched by configured sensor thresholds by IP watchdog. SNMPv3, SSL, IPv6 and Telnet, Radius and Modbus TCP support are incorporated.

Expert Power Control 1292 disposes of two energy meters and allows measuring of various electrical dimensions. A clearly visible LED display reveals total current, IP address, sensor data and error reports. The sensor interface allows monitoring of ambient temperature and humidity by optional available sensors. The Series consists of two product variants with alternative connector types on the top:

    1292-1: 4x safety socket type F (DE)            1292-4: 4x IEC C13 Lock

For Expert Power Control 1292-4, IEC Lock sockets prevent accidental disconnecting of IEC cables by a patented locking mechanism.
