PowerPDU 4C 4 Port Remote Power Switch
PowerPDU 4C controls and measures four IEC-320 C13 power outlets. Communication is provided over 2 LAN ports (embedded Ethernet switch) and a serial port (RS-232). PowerPDU 4C measures power consumption (A, kWh, TPF, W, V, Hz) on each power outlet individually.
Each power output can be controlled from the device´s Web interface, Mobile app, button or using various opened M2M APIs (protocols : REST XML/JSON, Modbus/TCP, MQTT, SNMP v3, Telnet and more).
Each power output C13 can be automatically switched on/off according to a time schedule, or by the IP WatchDog function that detects a PING response.
As a unique feature, the device is userprogrammable in the Lua language. The Lua script runs in PowerPDU 4C and reacts to time or other LAN devices (Lua Active Client).
Usage example: The custom Lua script can read data from the RS-232 serial port and switch additional AC unit based on the value from connected temperature sensor.
