The Sentry Commander PT45 uniquely combines Remote Power Management and Pass-Thru Console Port Access into one enclosure and - distinctively - one interface. With this exclusive combination of features, a network manager can perform a remote server reboot or establish serial communications with a remote device.
Remote Power Management allows the user to perform a remote server reboot or to bounce the power to another network device. A network manager can power off, power on and reboot network devices from any location via SSL Web, SSH, SNMP, RS-232 or secure out-of-band session.
Pass-Thru Port Access integrates secure, in-band and/or out-of-band serial connections to the console ports of up to 4 inter-networking devices for remote problem determination. The serial console is the only universal out-of-band management media for all the equipment in the data center. It has the ability to access servers for remote monitoring and communications for applications such as BIOS configuration, boot-prompt level access or remote configuration. Otherwise, connect to the configuration port (console or auxiliary port) on network equipment such as routers, switches, hubs and access servers.
The PT45 operates distributed Inline Power Modules (IPM's), which provide four distinct functional advantages:
Independent Power: One-to-one ratio between power input, IPM & device eliminates single point-of failure.
Greater distance: each IPM can be up to 1000' from the PT45 Commander.
Mixed-Amperage: 10-Amp and 20-Amp IPMs to control both severs & network gear.
Mixed Voltage: 110 VAC, 230 VAC and -48 VDC IPMs can be controlled from one PT45.
