The Avocent SPC offers secure AC power management for 8 attached devices. Used in conjunction with the Avocent CPS network appliance, the SPC can remotely control the power on/off status for each device attached to the SPC. Additionally, the SPC provides measurement and reporting of the total combined load of all devices for more accurate load management.When the SPC is powered up, each of the power receptacles, or ports, is powered sequentially with a two-second delay between each port. This power sequencing staggers the individual loads, eliminating the potential of a blown fuse or circuit breaker. The SPC's load measurement feature eliminates guesswork by supplying the cumulative operating load in amperes. This measurement allows on-site technicians to install and operate as much equipment as possible on a circuit without worry. Circuit use is maximized, while effectively leaving a 10% to 20% safety margin. Remote users may also access this information at any time over an IP connection from the SPC's command line or control screen.For simultaneous operations across multiple attached devices, SPC ports may be combined in named groups. Operations may then be issued to all ports in the named group with one easy command sequence. The SPC ships with mounting brackets for easy installation on your rack. Its vertical orientation makes it convenient to access, without taking up valuable U-space in the rack. The SPC features two types of user interfaces: the command line and the control screen. For easier port recognition, both individual ports and port groups may be assigned descriptive names for use in control commands. For the local technician, LED displays on the SPC indicate individual port power status and the cumulative power load. The SPC ships with three predefined usernames, including an administrator. The administrator may create up to 57 additional usernames, each with port and command access rights. SPC access is further secured through password protection.
