New product offers complete management from anywhere in the world
Today, Minuteman announced the release of the RPM1521E, the latest in a line of remote power management products, featuring a variety of upgraded features and capabilities.
Designed to eliminate downtime and costly service calls, this new RPM offers individual outlet control with remote re-start, monitoring, and management over all connected devices making it ideal for security systems, retail point of sale systems, telephone/VoIP systems, servers and network peripherals.
Minuteman’s 2-port RPM1521E is a useful tool for system administrators who manage one or more remote locations. From an easy-to-use web-based interface, the user can easily control power to attached devices from virtually anywhere using any standard web browser. This remote management capability reduces downtime and provides fast resolution to equipment lock-ups.
The RPM1521E has a “ping” feature that automatically senses that a device is locked up or no longer functioning. Users can program the RPM to send a text message or email to individuals or groups when a device has stopped working. Users can also program the RPM to immediately reboot if a lock-up occurs or the attached device can be manually re-started remotely with the click of a mouse. Attached devices can also be power cycle sequenced, plus power shut-downs and re-starts can be easily scheduled.
The RPM Series connects to a network via a CAT5 connection. Once an IP address is assigned, connected devices can be monitored, controlled, and managed via a secure web interface, allowing administrators to remotely resolve issues. Access is controlled with a user name and password, and other security features include SYSLOG, Web API function and SSL encryption, along with HTTPs and TLS email encryption. SNMPv2 and v3 are also supported. Each port provides surge protection to connected equipment with a surge energy rating of 800 Joules. The new model also has a cTUVus safety certification which is tested to UL60951-1 standards.
The full line of Minuteman remote power management products includes the 2-port RPM1521E, as well as 8, 16 and 24-port versions. All Minuteman remote power management products feature a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty. The RPM1521E’s are now shipping in the U.S. through Minuteman’s nationwide network of distributors and resellers, as well as authorized distributors in Canada, Central, and South America.
