The MINUTEMAN RPM (Remote Power Manager) is the ultimate power nerve center for controlling multiple network devices and services. With the RPM, you can individually control AC power for up to eight connected devices such as servers, hubs, routers, modems, and telephone systems. Up to 15 client RPM units can be added to control a total of 128 devices.

Multiple methods of communication & control
The MINUTEMAN RPM offers several convenient and flexible methods of communication and control over network devices — most users connect it to their LAN using a standard Ethernet connection. Unlike other power management units, the RPM gives you control via a telephone with no additional modem required — a very useful feature when your network locks up or becomes inoperable and no network connection is available. Simply call your master RPM unit from anywhere in the world and, using the touchtone keypad, enter your password and key in commands to reset devices as needed.

You can also connect an external modem to the MINUTEMAN RPM via its built-in RS 232 port to dial-up to the Internet. Once connected, the RPM emails you to notify you that it is connected to the Web with a specific address, allowing you to control the RPM through a Web browser, just as if it were connected to the LAN. The RPM also features scheduled output control — you can preset a day of the week and a specific time to start up and shutdown individual devices.

To keep you informed of events such as a server shutdown, the RPM can submit its notifications via pagers or network broadcast messages.

Manage devices from anywhere in the world
Once you’ve configured the MINUTEMAN RPM and connected it to your network, you can easily control it from virtually anywhere using a standard Web browser and your password. For example, you can reboot a locked network router in another city by simply resetting the outlet to which the router is attached. The MINUTEMAN RPM is the perfect solution for network administrators who manage one or more remote locations, such as an Internet Service Provider with several Points-of-Presence (POPs).
