A range of smart power monitoring and control devices including power strips, extension leads and power distribution units (PDUs) with smart management features that can be used to monitor a range of metrics including Amps, Volts, Energy Usage and Power Factor either via Ethernet or WiFi. With smart power control devices, individual sockets can be monitored and set for scheduled power-ups/shutdowns and remote reboots. Smart power strips and power cables can be used in a range of applications including remote/home worker computer systems, audio-visual (AV) systems, IT networks, server rooms, datacentres, Internet of Things (IoT), fridge/freezer controls, scientific and test laboratories, and Industrial manufacturing sites. The Smart Power Plugs (BS1363 UK and IEC32) feature WiFi control and management features via a web interface.
The PowerBOX 3Px is a smart IoT power socket strip with 3 output sockets and IP/Ethernet connectivity. Each output socket on the power strips can be separately switched ON or OFF using the web interface and/or the NETIO Cloud service. The power strips can be used for applications including IT devices, lighting and audio-visual (AV) systems. The device offers intelligent integration through various protocols including JSON, Modbus/TCP, SNMP, MQTT-flex and Telnet.
PowerPDU-4PS is a basic PDU with 4 IEC320 C13 outlets and individual socket control only. PowerPDU-4C is a metered PDU with 4 IEC320 C13 outlets. Each of the outlets can be independently controlled (ON/OFF/RESET/TOGGLE) and provide power and energy measurements including Amps, Watts, kWh, Power Factor, Voltage and Frequency. PowerPDU-4C PDUs can be connected in series to provide multiple sockets outlets.
PowerCable is a single socket smart power strip and is available with one of four interfaces (REST, MODBUS, IQRF or MQTT) and either BS1363 UK, IEC320 or Schuko sockets and plugs. As standard the product is shipped in the UK with UK BS-1363 square pin plugs and sockets to offer an easy ‘plug and play’ installation.
PowerCable models and interfaces include:
The ‘x’ in the model name ‘101x’ denotes the style of plug with G for UK, S for IEC and E, F and J for different styles of Schuko.
