The Juice Goose iP 50 is a web based power distribution device with AC power protection that can be accessed via Ethernet connection. With this remote access, two individual AC receptacles can be turned on and off independently. The iP 50 has a fifteen amp capacity.
The iP 50 can be controlled by the on board web server graphic interface (GUI) that can be accessed by any web browser. It can also be remote controlled by TCP/IP or UDP connection to commercial or proprietary control systems.
ECONOMICAL FEATURES AND FUNCTIONS
The iP 50 chassis measures only 1.75” H x 9.0” W x 9.5” D and weighs only five pounds. Side mounting flanges and a detachable power cord make installation convenient.
It features high quality, all steel construction as well as the most important features needed for web based remote control.
Using third party programs the iP 50 can be scheduled to turn on and off at specific times. Also, its outlets can be sequenced on and off if required for application in audio systems. This remote control can also be used to reboot DSPs or other processor based electronics as well as to save energy costs by scheduling electronic equipment to turn off when not in use.
All iP Series products have an on board web server that provides graphic user interface for controlling equipment connected to the iP Series unit. This feature is available for remote use as soon as the IP address of the unit is entered in a web browser.
TCP / IP CONTROL
It is possible to control and monitor iP 50 over Ethernet using raw TCP protocol. In this mode, any PC ( Windows, Linux, Mac ) can connect to the iP 50 over a TCP/IP connection using a suitable TCP/IP client program. Once the connection is made, the console commands are available to the user over TCP/IP as if the user was connected to iP 50 over the local serial connection.
There are four LED lights on the front of the iP 50 chassis. Two lights indicate which of the two Power Pods have been turned on. One light indicates that the iP 50 is plugged into electric power and connected to an active data network. This light will blink in the event of a network disconnection or failure. A fourth light indicates the status of AC line surge protection.
REPLACEABLE POWER PROTECTION
The iP 50 protects against AC power line surges between hot and neutral without ground line contamination. This protection component is not sacrificial. However, should that component be damaged as a result of exposure to extended over voltage or some other catastrophic event, the protection status LED will go off. In that event, the iP 50 can be serviced to replace the surge protection component. See the iP 50 manual for warnings and instructions.
