Features and Benefits

SPC Family requires no software to operate. However there is a GUI package available - DSView 3 Software. The DSView® 3 management software interface lets you easily associate server names with actual power outlet ports on the SPC power control device. DSView 3 software (Upgrade to DSview 4, Please contact Bomara for pricing) also allows grouping of dual-server power supplies as well as separating the power supplies on different power sources. This gives you true redundancy and control of dual-powered servers.

Note: DSView 3 software is sold separately.

  • Intelligent Power Management. Individual, addressable power outlets let you remotely reboot devices from any location in the data center or across the globe
  • Integrated Power Management. Access to SPC power control device from DSView 3 software provides built-in support for servers with multiple power supplies and reduces the possibilities of inadvertently switching off the wrong server / target device
  • Higher Amperage. The SPC 208V @ 30 Amp version doubles the power load delivered to the rack without increasing electrical infrastructure
  • Ease of Use. Available in horizontal and vertical mountable 16 outlet models. (Also available in 4 and 8-outlet models, with configurable port grouping and naming, multi-port commands and enhanced administration)
  • On / Off Power Indicators. DSView 3 software lets you easily view the SPC devices power outlet on / off status without entering the server room / data center
  • Power-up Sequencing. Avoids branch circuit overload due to inrush current on powering-up the SPC appliance
  • Naming Associations. Users can create an association between a server name and specific SPC outlet port(s)
  • Redundant Power Supply Configurations. Single connect and click power control of dual / multiple target devices that are powered from independent branch circuits / power sources
  • Power Monitoring. Dynamically measures and reports total input current load and indicates on / off state for every port
  • Security. In addition to port specific and command specific access control, the SPC power control device provides advanced user authentication and data encryption when combined with the Avocent CPS appliance
  • Energy Efficient. Power-on sequencing eliminates inrush current overload, which lets you maximize the number of devices on a single circuit
  • Click and Connect Access. When used with the Avocent DSView 3 software interface, the SPC device lets you access power to virtually any connected data center device
  • Local and Remote Power Load Measurement. Lets you hot plug additional SPC power control devices without the risk of overloading the branch circuit
