Basic setup and use

Factory defaults

The factory default network configuration is as follows:

  • wired network: fixed IP address 192.168.0.100, netmask 255.255.255.0;
  • wireless network: fixed IP address 192.168.254.1, netmask 255.255.255.0.

You can log in with username admin (lower case) and password 1234. It is recommended that you change the password. You will be reminded to do so by a big red banner on the top of each page.

To reset to factory defaults, gently press the reset-to-defaults button below the LCD to enter the reset menu, then select a reset option.

Initial setup

Use these shortcuts if you are an experienced installer. We recommend reading the entire manual for first-time installation.

  • Unpack. Save the carton.
  • Apply power to the controller.
  • Attach an Ethernet cable from the controller to your LAN. Switch power on. If you are attached through a switch, you may need to cycle switch power to establish a connection.
  • Ping the default address 192.168.0.100 to confirm that a network connection is established. If you don't receive a response, proceed to the IP setup section below.
  • Log in to the power controller using the default user name admin and the password 1234. Note: "admin" must be entered in lower case.
  • Click the Settings link to reach the configuration page. Select the safest power-loss configuration for your installation: all OFF, all sequential ON or pre-powerloss state.
  • Configure the power switch as described below. After each change, click Submit and wait for the page to refresh before continuing.

IP setup

If your network settings won't access the default IP, use a direct cable connection (temporarily bypass any switch or router) and follow these steps to add a compatible static IP, such as 192.168.0.50.

Windows IP setup

Before adding an IP, close all programs and browsers. After the link is established, you can enable DHCP.

Locating IP settings

In Windows, the first step is locating the network adapter TCP/IP properties. The procedure differs for each Windows version:

Windows XP, 2000, 2003:

  • Open Start / Control Panel / Network Connections.
  • In "classic view", select Start / Settings / Control Panel /Network Connections.
  • Right-click on Local Area Network Connection and select Properties.
  • Proceed to step 2.

Windows Vista:

  • Open Start, right click on Network, then on Properties.
  • Double click Network and Sharing Center.
  • Click Manage Network Connections. A Network Connections window appears.
  • Right click on the network connection to the switch, i.e. Local Area Network.
  • Proceed to step 2. Windows 7:
  • Open the Start orb, click on Control Panel.
  • Click View Network Status and Tasks, then Change Adapter Settings.
  • Proceed to step 2

Windows 8:

  • Mouse or swipe to the bottom right corner and select Settings.
  • Select Control Panel.
  • Select Network and Sharing Center.
  • Change Adapter Settings.
  • Right click on your connected network and select Properties.
  • Proceed to step 2

Configuring static IP

The second step is adding an IP such as 192.168.0.50. Temporarily disable DHCP while configuring the switch.

  • Select Internet Protocol TCP/IP V4 Properties and click Properties.
  • Enter a compatible static IP such as 192.168.0.50.
  • Click Apply and close windows.
  • Ping the power switch to confirm the connection.
  • Point your browser to 192.168.0.100
  • Log in.

  • Click the Apple logo, then System Preferences, then Network.
  • Select Built-In Ethernet and then Configure.
  • Under the TCP/IP tab, select Manually.

Windows IP configuration (2000, 2003, XP, Vista)

If your default Windows settings won't access the controller, use a crossover cable and follow these steps to reach the controller's IP:

  1. Close network programs and browsers
  2. Go to Network Settings -> Local Area Network.
  3. Use the keyboard shortcut — type "ncpa.cpl" and click OK.
  4. Right click on your LAN connection and choose "Properties".
  5. Highlight "Internet Protocol" and click the "Properties" button.
  6. Click the "Advanced" button.
  7. Under the IP Address settings, click the "Add" button.
  8. Enter a new IP, such as 192.168.0.10, and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
  9. Press the "Add" button; this new IP is added the list.
  10. Close all windows for the configuration to take effect.
  11. Start your Browser and type 192.168.0.100 in the URL field.

The default user name and password are "admin" (lower case) and "1234".

Basic switch operation

After power-up, the controller performs a sequence of self-tests to ensure reliability. The controller may then be operated via a web browser. To access the controller, simply enter the IP address in the URL field of your web browser, then log in. You will be presented with a screen similar to this:

Main power controller page

Note that in this and many other pages, logical blocks can be collapsed by clicking in their right-hand corner, and later expanded by clicking .

Common page layout

You can navigate the menu links to access the controller's features:

Power controller menu

Custom links can be configured on the Admin page. The branding block can be customized on the Customization page.

Switching outlets on and off

The outlet control page lets you control outlets. The sequence in which outlets will be switched on is determined by settings on the Admin page. To switch an outlet on or off, simply click to the right of the outlet name or number. Switching an outlet off is immediate. Switching an outlet on may be delayed if a different (or possibly even the same) outlet was recently turned on. The delay acts to protect the device from simultaneous inrush currents and limit cycling rate. You may also "cycle" a device which is connected to the controller. This feature is useful for rebooting Ethernet devices which may interrupt the web link to the controller. Clicking "Cycle" switches power off, waits a few seconds, and then switches power back on. This resets the attached device. You may also "cycle" all outlets using the "Cycle all outlets" button on the bottom of the page. Depending on your web browser settings, you may need to click the "refresh" button to update the on-screen status display after changing settings. A screen refresh setting is provided on the Setup page.

Logout

Browser logout is automatic when a session is closed or after a time-out period. You can use a menu link to log-out in advance.
