RPM 8 & 16-port Overview

Like Being Everywhere, All the Time

The Minuteman RPM is the ideal solution for network administrators who manage one or more remote locations. Once connected to the network, you can easily control it from virtually anywhere using a standard web browser and your password.

With a simple click, power up, down, or reboot any of up to 16 devices connected to the RPM. Automatic reboots of locked devices are also possible via ping actions.



Control from Anywhere

Minuteman RPMs offer a secure connection which is accessible from any device with a standard internet browser, including desktop and laptop PCs, smartphones, and tablets. From these devices, users can control and configure all aspects of the device, including:

  • LAN Connection: The RPM is an IP-based PDU that connects to your network via CAT5 cable
  • Control Individual Outlets: Power on/off, reboot, and monitor up to 16 individual devices from a single IP address
  • Scheduled Management Actions: save power with automatic shutdown and startup of devices over weekends or holidays
  • Notifications via SNMP or Email: To keep you informed of events such as a server shutdown, the RPM can submit its notifications via network broadcast or email to up to three addresses
  • Monitor Current Draw: View combined current draw on the RPM in real time, and configure warning and overload thresholds

RPM Benefits

Utilizing Minuteman's remote power manager products allows technicians and administrators to:

  • Save Time: Reboot remote devices in seconds, not minutes or hours
  • Increase Productivity: Eliminate help desk calls & lost time when a device locks up: RPM notifies & provides automatic reboot capabilities

Software

Monitoring & Management Overview

Minuteman RPM products include an easy-to-use IP-based web interface for controlling and monitoring connected devices.

Administrators can access this utility via the LAN or from beyond via a secure connection to the native web Server within the unit. Full monitoring, control, and configuration is possible from any device with an internet browser, enabling control from literally anywhere in the world. (click screenshots below to enlarge)


Monitor RPM Information in Real Time

The Information tabs provide real time status of the RPM, including real time combined current draw (fig. 1), user configurable warning and overload thresholds. Network information, including MAC address and RPM name settings, are also displayed on the System tab (fig. 2), allowing quick reference for identification when multiple RPMs are in use.


Control Connected Devices

Within the four control tabs, users can control individual outlets via On/Off/Reboot (OFF/ON) commands (fig. 4). Users can also group outlets to allow multiple devices which work together to be controlled simultaneously.


Event Scheduling & Ping Actions

The user can also schedule power on, off, or reboots at specific times/dates (one time or recurring) for indivduals or groups of receptacles (fig. 5). With this feature, administrators can save power by scheduling network downtime on weekends and holidays.

The Ping Action tab (fig. 6) enables the RPM to "ping" a device connected to a specific receptacle. If unanswered, the device can be rebooted to unlock it, preventing downtime.


Configuring the RPM

A wide array of settings are accessible in the configuration tabs, allowing users to adapt individual or groups of outlets to the needs of individual devices. These changes may be made on the fly, providing unparalleled versatility and adaptability.

Users can assign a descriptive name to each receptacle to prevent confusion, and set a startup and power-down delay sequencing when necessary (fig. 7). Users can also set up to three email addresses (fig. 8) to receive notification messages when any event takes place, including warning and overload thresholds, power events, and lockups.


Secure Connection with SSL

Minuteman's RPM products feature SSL security capability. When the SSL function is enabled, all communication with the device is done via HTTPs secure IP address, ensuring a safe and secure connection.

The user is able to configure custom user ID and password for SSL access.


Additional Configuration Parameters

Threshold Tab

Configure warning and overload levels for amperage load on the RPM unit; notifications sent via email or SNMP trap

Network Tab

Settings for IP-address selection; DHCP enabled by default, static IP can be defined if desired

SNMP Tab

Configure the RPM to send Simple Network Management Protocol traps to notify when an event occurs

Time Tab

Users can set RPM system time manually, or to update automatically via a defined network time server


Enterprise RPM Management Utility Included

Manage Multiple RPMs in one location

Minuteman RPMs include a free software utility that offers a consolidated location to monitor the status and review configuration information for all RPM devices across a network. Features include:

  • Function Menu: Provides device information as well as data/event logging results for individual RPM units
  • RPM List: Network tree showing all individual or group RPM on the LAN
  • RPM Information: An itemized list of status and device information for all RPM units on LAN
  • RPM Status Summary: Consolidated list of status information for all RPM units on LAN
