RPM IP-Addressable PDUs Overview

Remote reboot/remote switch up to 16 devices remotely from anywhere in the world with Minuteman RPMs.

The RPM is an ip-addressable PDU that allows administrators and technicians to remotely control the power to connected servers, network equipment, and security devices, eliminating the need for wasteful service calls to reboot locked devices.
