Sentry Expanded Function Power Tower (PTEF)

Sentry Expanded Function Power Tower (PTEF)


Application and Benefit… Designed for Data centers, co-lo sites and other lights-out facilities, the Expanded Function Power Tower (PTEF) allows network managers to reboot remote servers, removing the time and distance between locked-up servers and the resources to rectify them.

Remote Power Management
Individually control each power outlet to remotely reboot network servers and internetworking devices. Or, power-off unused power outlets to prevent unauthorized power consumption on remote power circuit(s).

Group Name Port Control
Group outlets within one Power Tower or across multiple Power Towers together to reboot dual-power supply servers with one command.

Input Current Monitor
Precisely measure the current (in amps) that network devices are drawing on each power circuit. A digital display indicator on the Power Tower provides on-site verification of the current, and the remote user’s interface screen reports the same current measurement.

Power-up Sequencing
Prevent an in-rush power overload. When power is suspended and restored to the Power Tower, the 16 power output receptacles power-on in four-second intervals to prevent a power in-rush from blowing a fuse or tripping a circuit breaker in your data center. An LED indicator at each receptacle signals the status of the power outlet.

Power Distribution
15, 20 or 30-Amp power input feed with straight-blade or twist-lock connectors. 120V or 230V.

Communications Access Modes
Unparalleled communications access and management via HTML, SNMP, Telnet, Out-of-Band (internal or external modem), or RS-232 serial control.

Expanded Security
In addition to password-per-port for multiple users, the PTEF also supports SecurID, TACACS, MD5 authentication, encrypted Telnet and IP-source restriction tables.
