What is an iBootBar Power Manager?



Multi-Outlet, Multi-User Remote Reboot with outlet grouping for simultaneous switching!

The Dataprobe iBootBar allows you to control each outlet independently from Web, Telnet, SNMP. Access the network plus out-of-band control via serial port and internal modem with both data and DTMF tone dial control. Wherever you are, you are in complete control.

iBootBar is available with single or dual power inlets. These models are also ideal for switching higher current devices. Each inlet is distributed to 4 outlets, which can be switched in pairs for redundant systems, or individually for higher current devices.

Internal Modem Option

The internal modem option allows connection to the iBootBar from anywhere, anytime. Dial-in with a laptop or terminal for complete control of all functions, or access iBootBar with any telephone for quick power on, off or reboot functions. Telephone users are guided with voice prompts and status information.

Monitoring Option

iBootBar continuously monitors the current draw from its outlets and reports user settable high and low current alarms. Know immediately when there is too much load, or a device stops working. Alarms are delivered both by email and SNMP traps.

Secure Multi-User Access

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. Multiple users, each with administrator assigned rights only see the outlets they are responsible for.

Link Outlets

Outlets can be linked together in logical groups, even across managed units, to allow simultaneous power control or reboot with a single command. Groups can also be used to link pairs of outlets together to reboot devices with dual redundant power supplies.

In addition to the Web interface, the outlets can also be controlled via Telnet, Serial, and SNMP.

Dual Power Inlet

Dual power is ideal for remote reboot control servers, routers, etc. with redundant power supplies.  Simultaneously switch both supplies off and on for reboot, security or energy management.

Amp Options

Models are available for North American 15 and 20 amp circuits.
