Single Port Web Controlled Power Switch – RPS-NODE-9255

Power Control Menu

Click on the POWER CONTROL link in the main menu. Shown is the main power control area of the RPS-NODE-9255 Unit. The device has one output electrical socket. You can name the port in this menu. Under the control column, you can select the ON / OFF power condition desired. Then simply hit the APPLY button to have the RPS-NODE-9255 perform the operation. The Timer Column allows for a delay time in seconds before the desired action is performed. If you wanted to power up/down with a delay, you can place your delay value into the timer section. This also allows you to reboot a device such as a router where you will lose the connection to the RPS-NODE-9255 unit during the power cycle, but regain access once the router reboots.

To refresh your power control screen, click the Power Control Link on the Main Menu.
