Expert Power Control 8101-2

All-pole switched PDU for increase in operational safety and energy efficiency in IT networks

Expert Power Control 8101-2 enables all-pole switching and metering of up to 6 electrical appliances through TCP/IP network, serial interface or mobile device app. The device disposes of 6 load outlets on the rear panel. The IEC Lock connectors prevent accidental disconnecting of IEC cables by a patented locking mechanism.

The 6 Power Ports can be all-pole switched, i.e. phase as well as neutral (L+N) are disconnected. They are individually switchable through web interface, serial interface, SNMP or a button directly on the device. Moreover SNMPv3, SSL, IPv6, Telnet, Radius and Modbus TCP support are incorporated. Expert Power Control 8101-2 disposes of two energy meters. Various electrical dimensions are measured on the supply line and enable users to identify and exploit power-saving potential in the their IT environment. In addition, responsibles receive warning messages when fault currents occur (residual current measurement type A). This allows preventive maintenance even before downtime.

• Switch and control servers and IT equipment in server rooms and data centers
• Switching network or media technology devices through media controls of well-known AV manufacturers (Atlona, ​​Barco, Crestron, Extron, Neets)
• Restart PCs, servers, routers, and switches remotely
• Reduce power consumption of standby devices through schedule control
• Network monitoring through integration with monitoring software (PRTG, Icinga, Nagios, Power IQ, Tivoli)
• Environmental monitoring by connected sensors (temperature, humidity and air pressure)

• Industrial environments: Test environments, laboratories, production facilities or workshops
• IT installations: Engineering rooms, data centers, 19 "cabinets or server rooms
• AV environments: huddle rooms, conference rooms, theaters, auditoriums, LED walls or digital signage systems
