Expert Power Control 8316

8-fold switched PDU with integrated energy metering per load outlet

Expert Power Control 8316 Series enables switching and metering of electrical appliances through TCP/IP network or serial interface. The front panel disposes of 8 load outlets, either safety socket (8316-1) or IEC C13 (8316-2). These Power Ports are individually switchable through web interface, serial interface, SNMP or a button directly on the device. SNMPv3, SSL, IPv6, Telnet, Radius and Modbus TCP support are incorporated.

Besides total current metering, outlets of Expert Power Control 8316 dispose of two energy meters each (outlet metered). Sensor interfaces allow monitoring of ambient temperature, humidity and air pressure by optional available sensors. Connected consumers can be switched by an IP watchdog through configured sensor or energy metering thresholds.


Expert Power Control 8316


  • 8 load outlets (safety socket or IEC C13)
  • Energy metering per load outlet
  • 2 interfaces for optional sensors
  • Port switching also by set sensor thresholds
  • IPv6, SNMPv3, SSL, Telnet, Radius, Modbus TCP
  • Vertical rack mounting (0 RU)


  • 8 Power Ports individually switchable directly on the device, via HTTPS, command line tool and RS232 serial interface
  • 2 energy meters per port, one meter continuously, the other resettable
  • Metering of energy, current, power factor, phase angle, frequency, voltage and active / apparent / reactive power
  • Latency time of 1 second prevents simultaneous power-up of multiple Power Ports
  • Paired switching of outlets possible, e.g. output 1 of bank 1 simultaneously with output 1 of bank 2
  • Status and power-up delay individually adjustable for each Power Port after power blackout (0...9999 seconds)
  • Programmable turn-on/turn-off sequence (batch mode) enabling automatic switching of Power Ports to previous state after configurable time perio
  • Preventing critical system conditions: Connected loads can be switched on or off by configured sensor or energy metering thresholds
  • Previous state of Power Ports can be automatically restored after reboot of device
  • 8-channel watchdog, an individual watchdog (ICMP/TCP) can be assigned for each Power Port
  • A clearly visible LED display for total current, IP address, sensor data and error reports
  • Dedicated high-inrush relays avoid welding of relay contacts at start-up peaks
  • 2 interfaces for optional sensors for environmental monitoring (see Accessories)
  • Port switching possible by configured sensor thresholds by IP watchdog
  • Low internal power consumption
  • Developed and manufactured in Germany


  • Dynamic IP address allocation by DHCP or manual allocation with static IP address
  • IPv6-ready
  • Firmware update over Ethernet during operations (without reboot of device or load outlets)
  • SNMPv1, v2c, v3 (Get/Traps)
  • TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2
  • Syslog support
  • IP Access Control List
  • Secure login through SSL
  • Configuration and control via Telnet
  • Radius and Modbus TCP support
  • Comfortable configuration by web browser, Windows or Linux tool
  • 10/100 Mbit/s
