Smart Power Sockets provide a way to monitor and control your power and energy usage. These smart devices can monitor a range of metrics including Amps, Volts, Energy Usage and Power Factor either via Ethernet or WiFi. Sockets can also be individually controlled for scheduled power-ups/shutdowns and remote reboots. Intelligent socket devices like these have a range of applications including domestic IT networks, server rooms, datacentres, Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial sites. They are similar to our range of intelligent PDUs and offer several APIs for information retrieval.
PowerPDU-4C is a is a small 4 socket outlet (IEC320 C13) 110/230V power distribution unit. Each of the outlets can be independently controlled (ON/OFF/RESET/TOGGLE). Electrical measurements include: Amps, Watts, kWh, Power Factor, Voltage and Frequency and units can be connected in series.
PowerCable is a single socket smart extension cable and is available with one of four interfaces (REST, MODBUS, IQRF or MQTT) and either BS1363 UK, IEC320 or Schuko sockets and plugs. Models 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.

Note: ZCS stands for Zero Current Switching. ZVS stands for Zero Voltage Switching.
The supported Machine-2-Machine API protocols include: Telnet, SNMP v1 and SNMP v3, Modbus/TCP, MQTT generic, MQTT MS Azure, XML over HTTP (REST), XML over HTTPs (REST), JSON over HTTP (REST), JSON over HTTPs (REST), URL API over HTTP (REST), URL API over HTTPs (REST) and SIP VoIP (experimental fw available on request).
The M2M active client list includes: Lua PING request (AN09, AN24, AN25), Lua XML over HTTP get (AN13, AN14), Lua URL API over HTTP get (AN06), Lua SNMP (AN16), Lua MQTT (AN35) and Lua RS-232 (Serial port) (AN18).
A mobile app is available for iOS and Android devices for PowerPDU-4C and NETIO 4All devices. The App currently runs via a LAN/WiFi network. A cloud-based app is in development. App functions include:
