Remote Power Switch DC: Control Your DC-powered Devices

Remote Power Controller 100 (DC)
The Remote Power Controller - the first DC PDU (Power Distribution Unit) from DPS Telecom - allows you to switch on/off and reboot your gear from miles away.

This is a DC power product. The AC power switch version is also available from DPS.

If you've ever had to jump in your truck and drive hours to a site to reboot jammed DC-powered equipment, you already know exactly why you need the Remote Power Controller. Long drives to your sites are a waste of resources, not to mention longer return-to-service times. With this industrial-grade remote PDU, you'll power on/off and reboot all your vital DC-powered devices - right from your desk at the Central Office.

Using any PC on your network, you can operate controls, check the temperature at the site, and keeps tabs on power consumption - all without rolling a single truck. One feature that makes this remote power control unit special is SNMP compatibility. You'll choose up to 8 alert devices - any combo of SNMP managers and email addresses.

Need to control lots of power at a single location? Use the expansion port on the back of the unit to daisy chain many of these rack mountPDUs 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. This is especially vital at your unmanned sites, where you need to detect and respond to network issues remotely.

A rack mount PDU is an industrial-grade power strip used to power servers and telecommunications equipment.

Here's What This Power Controller Can Do For You:

Deploy the remote power switch DC (8 port and 16 port options available) at critical locations to switch on, switch off, and reboot equipment from miles away.

Full Specifications

Basic PDU units are available from many different manufacturers, but there are a few that include more functionality than the rest. The Remote Power Switch AC can have both PDU and RTU functionalities in only one metal box.

The PDU functionality allows you to control power, while the RTU capabilities allow you to monitor discrete and analog alarm data from your important equipment.

For added environmental visibility, this rack-mounted power distribution unit also monitors the internal and external temperature, as well as current draw for each input power. This is especially critical at your unmanned sites, where you need to detect and respond to network issues remotely.

RTU Build Only:

66 block

A 66 block is a simple way to use wire-wrap connections with DPS RTUs. When telcos really want connections to stay in place, they use wire wrap. You'll simply punch down your alarm, analog, and/or control relay wiring to the 66 block, then connect the 66 block to the RTU using a standard amphenol cable (also available from DPS).
