Expert Power Control 8210 / 8211

8-fold switched PDU with integrated current metering for TCP/IP networks

Expert Power Control 8210 / 8211 enables switching and metering of electrical appliances through TCP/IP network or serial interface. Eight load outlets (max. 10 A) are integrated on the rear panel (8210) or front panel (8211). These Power Ports are individually switchable through web interface, serial interface, SNMP or a button directly on the device. The sensor interface allows monitoring of ambient temperature and humidity by optional available sensors.   

Our new generation PDUs are recommended for new projects: Expert Power Control 8021, 8031 and 8041 have enhanced features such as SSL, IPv6, Telnet, residual current measurement and overvoltage protection.
