July 24, 2009--Para Systems' Minuteman RPM 1521 2-outlet IP-addressable remote power manager lets users send a command via a Web browser to cycle power off and on, reducing downtime and providing a fast resolution to equipment lock-ups involving remote or hard-to-reach security and telephone/VoIP systems, as well as data center servers and network peripherals.

July 24, 2009--Para Systems' Minuteman RPM 1521 2-outlet IP-addressable remote power manager lets users send a command via a Web browser to cycle power off and on, reducing downtime and providing a fast resolution to equipment lock-ups involving remote or hard-to-reach security and telephone/VoIP systems, as well as data center servers and network peripherals.

The RPM 1521 allows each receptacle to be independently monitored and managed, including scheduled shut-downs and reboots. In addition, each receptacle provides protection from surges and spikes. The secure browser interface manages user privileges via password protection.

An "auto-ping" feature monitors and auto-detects the availability of attached equipment. If no response is detected, the RPM 1521 will notify administrators that an attached device is non-responsive. The user can configure the system to send an SMS text message, broadcast an e-mail, and/or send an SNMP trap notification should the RPM detect a no-response condition. The RPM 1521 can also be programmed to perform an automatic reboot when equipment has failed, as well as send the automatic notifications that a power event has occurred.

The RPM 1521 also offers "green" functionality by initiating power down and power restore commands at pre-scheduled times, thus saving energy during periods when equipment is not in use.
