The IP9258S can be programmed with only one event (ie on and off) per port per 24 hour period. this can be repeated every day or set by day but not many times in the same day. Of course, this can be done 'manually' form a remote location however. There...
Yes. Simply configure the IP address for the IP Power 9258SP to ping, the number of consecutive pings that need to fail and the power port into which the router is connected to the unit. Then when the remote IP address fails to respond to the number ...
Yes, you can label individual sockets with meaningful names. In the web interface there is a box in which you can type your own memorable labels for each socket.
The power to the PC can be controlled remotely by the Aviosys IP9258SP, but only if the PC is connected directly into one of the ports on the power switch itself. In addition, the IP address of the power switch must also be accessible remotely either...
You can set the schedule for a once a day action and repeat that every day, Monday to Friday and separately Saturday and Sunday. You can also set a delay on an action, so that On or Off won't take effect until a time has elapsed. In addition you can ...
Yes. The Aviosys IP Power 9258S and 9258SP models both have a RS232 interface that can be used to control the unit.
The timer schedule limits the number of times you can switch each port on and off to once per day.
The Power Switches are not aware of the type of devices connected to the outlets, they just switch power On or Off.
I would not recommend this for a medically critical application.
You can login to your power switch and use the Firmware Update option on the IP Power interface, or go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest firmware.
Each device has a unique MAC address so I can't tell you what the MAC address will be prior to purchase. The MAC address is on a label on the device.
You can set a schedule to switch a port On (or Off) for 2 mimutes, or indeed for any time. You can specify a date and time to switch too. However the scheduler is not designed to switch ports On and Off several times a day. So you can switch a port On...
You can program in a delay, the number of Pings and the time between Pings before a failure is indicated.
Yes. You can use the Auto Ping feature to switch the socket that is attached to your router. Set the power switch to Ping a device outside your Local Area Network (LAN), for example set a Ping to Google.com. If a configured number of Pings fail, then...
No maximum is quoted in the specification. Each power cycle takes about 1 second so it would be unwise to flood the switch with lots of requests to power On/Off. The IP Power Switch is not designed for heavy duty switching so I would not recommend it for an application like this.
