At a glance

Remote Power Control/Reboot
Reboot locked up equipment instantly without the need for costly site visits. Optionally turn attached equipment on or off at scheduled times, for example, when staff have gone home and at weekends, saving energy costs.

Automatic Transfer Switching
Integrated automatic transfer switching from your primary power supply to a back-up or secondary supply will provide your single-corded devices with full redundancy ensuring they are always up and running even if your primary power source fails. Transfer to the secondary power source is instant and seamless, not affecting the attached device’s performance in any way.

Temperature Monitoring
The NPS-ATS constantly monitors your remote rack temperature level with its integral sensor. If the temperature exceeds your pre-defined thresholds, the NPS-ATS will notify you immediately ensuring you can take action before high temperatures force a shutdown of your IT systems. The NPS-ATS can, if necessary, turn on external fans or air-conditioning to help bring rack temperature back to normal levels.

Proactive Alarm Management
The alarm functions on the NPS-ATS will provide you with a range of tools to help you identify networking issues before they become critical. Comprehensive activity logs on the NPS create a record of all your power switching and monitoring activity and will help you identify issues before they become critical.

The NPS-ATS Network Power Switch is a remote power reboot switch which will allow you to maximise equipment
uptime whether your devices have single or dual power input feeds. For co-location providers, who offer a hardware reboot or automatic transfer switching to customers, installing the NPS-ATS will save valuable rackspace and costs. The NPS-ATS has outlet specific password protection so user access is limited to assigned switched outlets.


Features & Benefits

Transfer to a secondary power source is automatic and instant when the primary source fails. This ensures that a power failure will not affect the attached device’s performance in any way.

The NPS-ATS will monitor the primary power source and, as soon as power is restored to the primary input, the unit will switch back to the primary source from the secondary source.

The NPS-ATS can be configured via SSH or SNMP, or locally via the serial console port. A user-friendly GUI interface allows you to assign a location name, set system parameters and view outlet status. Outlets can be switched on, off, rebooted or set to user-defined default status.

Alarms are generated to provide you with an advanced warning of problems with your equipment such as lost voltage or high rack temperatures. Alarms can be sent by email, text message, SNMP, SYSLOG or audibly. An audit log on the unit also creates a record of all power monitoring, switching and reboot activity, helping to increase network availability by identifying issues before they become critical.

Remotely reboot any attached device and minimise network downtime. There is no need for costly and time consuming engineering support calls to remote offices.

The NPS-ATS is also available without the automatic transfer switch function should you wish to support dual power supply networking equipment exclusively. The NPS Network Power Switch (NPS-8 and NPS-16 models) itself has dual power supplies which protect the redundant power supply architecture of your larger dual powered servers, routers etc. Any dual power supply device can now be supported across the dual bus architecture of the NPS Network Power Switch in order that full redundancy is maintained without having to install two separate switched PDUs.
