Flexibility to Address a Variety of AC Power Control Requirements, Locally or Remotely
Use it Anywhere in The World
WHAT IS IT?
The U-X3 supports input AC voltages from 110V to 250V and has a 15 Amp circuit breaker. It uses internationally standard IEC320 AC connectors. This combination allows it to be used anywhere in the world with locally available power cords. Various AC power cords as well as a Universal Adapter that provides connections for any type of AC Plug in the world are also optionally available. It is also available with standard North American AC Connectors.
The U-X3 provides a number of methods to control it, allowing it to be used locally or remotely for a number of different applications; from simply resetting DSL modem/routers to automatically resetting kiosks or other equipment that may hang from time to time. Or even to turn the power ON or OFF on certain equipment for protection, security or simply to add a little green to the environment.
The front panel supports three multi-function connectors. A USB connector and two RJ-11 connectors, any of which can be used to configure the unit or to send the ON/OFF/RESET power control commands, depending on the application. The RJ-11s provide the connection for a standard telephone line for remote control. They are also used for the RS-232 and Upstream Downstream connections as well as to connect other external CPS controllers or Base Units.
*0S1 would change the AC outlet separation ON time delay to 1 min.See instructions for a complete list. Once the setup preferences are defined, any ON/OFF/RESET command or manual power ON/OFF will be executed accordingly. You can also make inquires as to the setup preferences. They are confirmed by local on screen replies or audible "beeps" over the phone line.
HOW IT CAN BE CONTROLLED?
Remote Control over a standard telephone line is provided through the Ring Count RESET feature (standard). This feature simply counts the rings and RESETS once the ring threshold is reached.
Our new (optional) Internal Touch Tone Option (ITTO) is also available. It provides a multi-level password and allows the ON/OFF/RESET commands as well as inquires to be sent using a touch tone key pad. It can also share the line with other devices (phone, fax, TAD, but no inbound modem) and allows some of the set up preferences to be changed remotely as well. The commands may also be appended to a modem's AT dial string for more automated entry, even though there is no modem at the U-X3 end. Multiple ITTOs/U-X3s with different passwords may also be connected to the same phone line.
External Remote Controllers are also available to provide additional methods of remote access.
Auto Ping is used to RESET network equipment (modems, routers, gateways, firewalls etc.). It pings outside addresses through the target devices and RESETS them if the return pings are not detected. You can assign two IP addresses for up to 30 AC jacks.
Heartbeat is used to monitor the server, connected to the USB or RS-232 serial port on the U-X3. It will RESET one AC JACK on the U-X3 if serial transmission from the server is not detected within a prescribed time. A DLL is also available to help incorporate the heartbeat into your application if required.
Or use the External IP Controller (N-RRC) as your primary method of AC power control, but when the network equipment is down, you can rely on the Auto Ping to automatically reset it or use any of the "out of band" touch-tone option or Ring count RESET feature to reset the Router modem etc.
Of course all of this can be changed along with a number of other operating parameters through the USB port on the U-X3. It is truly a remarkable device. Its flexibility allows it to be used for a variety of AC power control requirements. It will keep your blood pressure in check and miles off of you car.
AC Power Command Examples
A typical serial port command to RESET POWER on Box #2, Port #1 is *213
If this were sent as a touch-tone command through an External Telephone Line Controller, it would be preceded with the controller #, Password (up to six numbers), and the Port number of the Controller (multi-port units) that the U-X3 is attached to:
This could also be sent from a modem by appending it to the AT dial string. Even though there may not be a modem at the UX-3 end.
Wild card and Global Commands are also available.
*PON This "global Command" will turn ON all of the ports on all of the boxes according to the delays applied in the setupTo send this command via Touch-Tones to the Internal Controller (ITTO) enter
The manual ON/OFF switch can also be used to power the UX-3 ON or OFF. It will power ON according to the preferences that you selected.

OPTIONAL AC POWER CORDS and ADAPTERS
U-X3s with North American AC Jacks do not normally require any adapter cords. Just plug the AC power directly into the unit. However, if wall mount trnasformers are used, the IEC connectors with adapter cords should be considered. Select those that may apply to your application from the list below. Also see the diagram above.
