Can the IP Power9258 be set up so that it connects the power to an appliance for a predetermnined period, e.g. two minutes?
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 at say 9am and off at 5pm every day, or only on Mondays, or on any other days, but you can't schedule the power On and Off several times on the same day.
You can login to the IP Power and switch On and Off manually as often as you like. Or, you can use the web based API to switch the power on / off as you wish. Plainly, that would require some custom programming on the website.
