Using any PC on your network, you can operate controls, check temperature at the site, and keeps tabs on power consumption - all without rolling a single truck.
One feature that makes this power switch special is SNMP compatibility.
To control several devices at one location use the expansion port on the back of the unit to daisy chain many Remote Power Controllers together. Linked switches will act as a single unit, making them easy to control using the web interface.
For added environmental visibility, the Remote Power Controller also monitors internal and external temperature, as well as current draw for each input. This is especially critical at your unmanned sites, where you need to detect and respond to network issues remotely.
There is no other network on the planet that is exactly like yours. For that reason, you need to build a monitoring system that's the right fit for you.
"Buying more than you need" and "buying less than you need" are real risks. You also have to think about training, tech support, and upgrade availability.
