Power Switch

I want to use the IP Power 9258S to turn on and off a machine that delivers Oxygen to my mother in another part of the country?
I would not recommend this for a medically critical application.
Where can i find firmware update for IP Power 9258S?
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.
I am looking for a device that will ping internet sites, if it cannot get a connection, it will reset what ever is plugin in.
IP9258S-P, IP9255, IP9255PRO, 9258DX and IP9820 units can perform continuous Pings to specified IP addresses. If the Pings fail then the relevant power outlet can be turned off and On again
I am looking to fit a remote controlled power switch to our local telecoms mast in order to switch on an air traffic hazard beacon when needed; would the IP9255 be the right product for the job?
Yes. So long as the current drain is within the IP Power 9255 maximum of 8 amps. The device has a built in web server so you could browse to the device and switch your air traffic hazard beacon on / off as and when required. If you have a management system, you can also integrate it using the SDK.
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 minutes, 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. See more details for further information...
Can you supply a IP9255 as a 2 pin EU plug? If you can, tell me what code to use?
Yes we can supply EU versions. Just add your country code to the part number, for example for Germany 9255GE. for France 9255FR. The price is the same for all versions.
If the unit power cycles after no response from a ping will it wait a set time period before pinging again?
You can program in a delay, the number of Pings and the time between Pings before a failure is indicated.
Can the IP9258S-P be used to reboot equipment?
Yes. You can use the Auto Ping feature to switch the socket that is attached to your router.
Can you supply the IP Power 9255 Pro with a US socket?
Yes. The IP Power 9255 Pro is available with a US socket. I usually supply the UK and EU versions. I can supply the US version but there would be a minimum order size of 12 units, 1 box.
How many power cycles is each port rated for? I want to use it for test power cycling products i.e. run a test that does 100 to a 1000 power cycles, each on cycle would be about 5 minutes
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...
I want to ask if it is feasable having a remote control for example like the one used for TV? I don't need an internet or ethernet remote control, and i just want it to control 8 channels
The IP9820S unit comes with a battery operated Remote Control, so you can control the 8 ports, just like on a TV remote.
