8 Outlet Managed PDU for DC Systems

When you need to reduce costly site visits, ensure business continuity and increase network reliability, Model iBB-DC8 gives you peace of mind. iBB-DC8, a managed PDU that is web-accessible for eight independently controlled outlets, enables multiple users to reboot remotely from anywhere, using any web browser, Telnet client or SNMP manager.

From solar systems to pumping and irrigation to surveillance systems, iBB-DC8 keeps your network up and running.

iBB-DC8 – 8 outlet remote power control

iPIO is simple to install and easy to use, but enables you to develop highly flexible telemetry systems. We can also work with you to tailor custom and OEM applications for your specific needs.

Automatic Monitoring and Management

iBB-DC8 gives you the freedom to monitor, power down and reboot devices remotely. With configurable AutoPing, iBB-DC8 can automatically detect an issue, reboot and restore downed devices quickly without you even having to lift a finger.

iBB-DC8's serial port and internal modem give you flexible, out-of-band control over devices through on-site command-line interface, as well as off-site through prompted, telephone dial-tone response. With iBB-DC8, even if the network goes down, you can check - from anywhere - if critical devices are still operating, and reboot them if they aren't.

iBB-DC8 also continuously monitors current draw from its outlets, notifying you immediately of failure or excess loads, as determined by high and low current thresholds that you set.

Scalable Power Control

With optional dual power inlets, iBB-DC8 is ideal for remotely rebooting devices with redundant power supplies. Simultaneously switch both supplies off and on for reboot, security or energy management. Each inlet is distributed to four outlets, which can be switched in pairs for redundant systems, or switched individually for higher current devices.

Up to 16 iBB-DC8s can be linked together to control 128 outlets from a single IP address and web page. Groups and user rights across multiple iBB-DC8s give you power management capabilities across your entire network.

iBB-DC8 Operations

iBB-DC8 – Simple web browser interface

The web browser interface provides the easiest means of managing multiple outlets. One master unit can be connected to 15 expansion units, managing 128 outlets from a single web page interface.

The web page presents a clear status indication of each outlet, current draw across all inputs and the AutoPing monitoring, if implemented.

Each outlet can be individually selected, or multiple outlets can be simultaneously operated. User selectable cycle timer allows single command reboot. Delay timer limits inrush current by staggering power up when multiple devices are simultaneously controlled.

iBB-DC8 – User Rights Management

Up to 15 users can be identified, each with specific rights to one or more outlets, as well as administrator rights for programming the system. User rights can span multiple units, so that one user can command a specific outlet in each of several data cabinets. Users only see the outlets they have rights to. User rights function the same for both web browser control and the Telnet or serial command line interface.

iBB-DC8 – Group outlets for maximum control

Two or more outlets can be grouped together for simultaneous action. Link all email servers together to reboot the entire system, or group both power feeds for dual redundant servers, and reboot the server with one command. Like outlets, groups are individually named and assigned to users as required. Group outlets across multiple iBB-DC8s to simultaneously manage like devices across cabinets throughout your data center.
