5-fold switched and outlet-metered PDU

Expert Power Control 8001-1 for more operational security and energy efficiency in 19-inch installations
  • Demonstrably fewer and shorter outages of your critical IT and AV infrastructure
  • Detect AV and IT problems at an early stage: Through proactive power monitoring per port and environment monitoring
  • Measurably increased energy efficiency (Green IT and AV): Electricity cost and CO2 savings through controlled switching off of devices
  • Integrate anywhere: Quickly and easily integrate anywhere with API interface: REST API, HTTPS, SNMP, Telnet and MQTT
  • Fix AV and IT problems quickly and effectively: Remote reboot or with the self-healing function (automatic restart) thanks to integrated watchdogs
Massive time and cost savings through plug-and-play drivers from our technology partners

Key Features
  • Event and schedule controlled switching
  • Precise current metering per power outlet of up to 9 units
  • Connector for plug-and-play sensors for real-time monitoring
  • Fast and easy installation on support rails with hat profile
  • NTP function can be activated
  • More flexibility through Radius, Modbus TCP and MQTT 3.1.1 support
Switching function
  • Each power port can be switched via HTTP(S), SNMP, ModbusTCP or command line interface via Telnet, SSH, MQTT and serial interface
  • Programmable on/off sequences for remote reboots (Remote Reboot)
  • Power ports can be switched when preset sensor thresholds are exceeded
  • Self-healing function thanks to 5-channel watchdog: Each power port can be assigned its own Watchdog (ICMP/TCP), which initiates an automatic restart if necessary
  • Switching state and switch-on delay up to 9999 seconds (166 minutes) individually adjustable for each output port after power failure
  • Current peaks due to increased inrush currents are automatically prevented by sequential switch-on with a latency of 1 second

Metering function
  • Power consumption metering (kwH) per power outlet with 2 energy counters: one counter counts consistently, the other counter is resettable
  • Metering of current (A), voltage (V), phase angle, power factor, frequency (Hz), active power (W), apparent power (VA) and reactive power (VAr) per power outlet
  • Connector for combined plug-and-play sensors (temperature, humidity and air pressure) to prevent physical hazards that often occur, such as overheating and increased humidity or air pressure.
  • Generation of status messages and alarms (e-mail, syslog, SNMP traps MQTT, SSH, Telnet)
  • Encrypted e-mails (SSL, STARTTLS)
  • Access protection by IP access control
  • Encrypted communication through SSL (TLS 1.1, 1.2, 1.3) and SSH
  • Password protected access
  • Beeper for audible alarm when sensor limits are exceeded/deceeded
  • Easy-to-read LED display for displaying total current, IP address and sensor values
  • Firmware update via Ethernet during operation (no restart required)
  • Simple and flexible configuration via web browser, Windows or Linux program
  • Dynamic assignment of an IP address via DHCP or manual assignment of static IP address
  • Rapid commissioning thanks to free and reliable drivers from our technology partners

The Expert Power Control 8001-1 is a network-capable power switch in a DIN rail housing that has 5 load outputs. The electrical devices connected to it can be switched on or off as required and the total power consumption per port can be monitored. Thus, the smart PDU should not be missing in any AV system, IT installation or data center.

The load outputs of the Expert Power Control 8001-1 can be switched separately via a web interface, SNMP or the button on the device. SNMPv3, SSL and IPv6 as well as Telnet, Radius, Modbus TCP and MQTT (3.1.1) are supported. The IP Power Switch has two integrated energy meters. Measuring a wide range of electrical variables enables users to identify and exploit power-saving potential in the IT environment. Automated alerts for limit measurements enable preventive maintenance measures to be taken even before downtime occurs.
