Meeting All Your Power Needs via IP-based Power Outlets
PLANET IPM-8220 is a 8-port IP Power Management (IPM) device that provides the useful function of managing power for any combination to connect with itself. With the innovative IP-based technology, PLANET has made the traditional power management equipment into true networking devices.
Intelligent Power Management
The IPM-8220 offers 8 power outlets, each of which can be controlled or monitored individually by the console or SNMP manager software or web interfaces, or by setting the button. They allow users to access, configure, and manage many networking devices at the same time from remote locations to save valuable time.
Electric Current Monitored on Display
The aggregate current draw per IPM rack is displayed on the unit via a digital display. The local digital display helps installers avoid overloaded circuits by providing a visible warning when the current draw is close to the maximum amperage draw of the strip.
Scheduled Power On/Off
The IP-based Switched Power Manager allows you to pre-define a power schedule for IT equipment. It alerts users to an upcoming shutdown, and then waits a predefined amount of time to allow users to finish their work and sign off.
Securing you against the risk of getting the entire circuit cut off, commonly happened with ordinary power distribution units (PDUs), when there is overloaded power, PLANET PDU, with a built-in circuit breaker and reset switch, ensures the stability of power distribution among its equipment. Its 16-amp circuit breaker prevents dangerous circuit overloads that could damage the equipment.
Energy and Cost Saving
You can also check the current energy consumption in your office within the configuration interface of the IPM-8220. It helps you reduce energy consumption, thus saving expenses on utilities.
