Remote Power Switches
Perle’s Remote Power Switches (RPS) enable you to
remotely power on/off/cycle Data Center equipment to reduce downtime,
service costs and resources. Operate as an integrated solution with
IOLAN Console Servers or as a standalone device over Ethernet.
- Remote Power Switch
- Independent Control
of Power Ports
Each AC power plug can be independently powered on, off or cycled
giving complete control over when and in which sequence equipment is
- Dual AC Power Bus
Perle RPS models are the only remote power switches with a dual AC
Power bus architecture providing better equipment protection than
single power bus systems.
When used with redundant power systems such as the Dell Poweredge
6850, Perle's Remote Power Switches are able to draw power from
separate AC sources ensuring that at least one source of AC power is
always up and running thereby maximizing equipment uptime.
Both power buses are protected by separate breakers. If a breaker
does trip, only the associated bus will be turned off, leaving the
other bus operational. Single bus power switches that come with
single or dual breaker systems will shut down the entire power
switch when there is a breaker-tripping event.
- Horizontal Form
Factor Models with NEMA or IEC Plug standards
Perle Remote Power Switches are available in a configuration to meet
your data center power needs.
Various models are available in
horizontal (1U or 2U) form factors as well a choice of North
American NEMA or international IEC power plug standards
- Emergency Manual
This gives an IT administrator in the
vicinity the ability to power on or off the switch in an emergency.
Other vendors require the unplugging of power input cords which
would cause potentially dangerous arcing or having run to the main
power panel to trip a breaker.
