ARR Application Diagram


  • Very Easy to Use
  • Use on Unattended Modem Banks
  • Six AC Outlets
  • Reset Other Devices Too
  • Hefty Surge Protection for AC & TelCo
  • Economical Internal Touch Tone Control Option "ITTO"

The Automatic Ring ReBooter (ARR) is an intelligent power strip that recognizes inbound ring signals and simply resets the "Controlled" AC outlet pairs after six unanswered rings. Anything connected to the "Controlled" AC outlets will be powered off for 7 seconds before the AC power is reapplied.

The number of "Controlled AC Jacks" (2, 4 or all 6) is specified at the time or order. They all react to the AC commands simultaneously. The "Normal" or non-controlled jacks act like normal power strip jacks. Possibly eliminating the need for redundant equipment.

The ARR was originally designed to be used to reset dial modems that may be hung (not answer), but it has since been used for a verity of low cost reset applications. The analog connection on a DSL line can also be used to "Ring Control" the ARR (no filter required). Also see BROAD BAND-AID.

The ARR simply connects to your phone line through one of the ARR's RJ-11 connectors. A modem or other phone equipment (if used) connects to the other. The AC power from the device(s) to be reset are connected to any of the "Controlled Outlets".

Internal Touch Tone Option "ITTO"
This economical option allows direct control (ON/OFF/RESET) of the ARR from any Touch-Tone keypad (land phone, cell or modem). It also provides password protection, remote programming and status inquiry as to the configuration and AC power state. The responses are in the form of "Beeps" (long beep = OFF Short = ON). Previously an External Telco Controller was required.

ITTO can also share the line with other devices (phone, fax, TAD, but no inbound modems). It also 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 ARR end. Multiple ITTOs/ARRs with different passwords may also be connected to the same phone line

Optional External Remote Controllers
Touch-Tone Controller, use when sharing the Telco line with inbound modems.
Multi-Port Controller, use this when you want to connect several ARRs (3 or 8 port models), and control them with touch tones. Also see ARR+
IP Controller, use for remote control over the Internet or any IP network.
Cell Controller use where no phone line or network access is available. Text or e-mail the commands.
Other controllers are also available, but these are the more popular.

You can specify the number of "CONTROLLED AC OUTLETS" and the number of "NORMAL" (non-reset) AC outlets on the ARR.

This allows the ARR to function as a "NORMAL" heavy duty three stage surge protected power strip while some of the outlets act as "Intelligent Remote Controlled" outlets.

There is no additional charge. Simply add the following designations (?x?) to the appropriate item number.

The AC outlets operate in pairs and can be specified as follows:

  • 2x4 - (two controlled outlets and four "normal" outlets)
  • 4x2 - (four controlled outlets and two "normal" outlets)
  • 6x0 - (six controlled outlets and no "normal" outlets)

Functions as an INTELLIGENT POWER STRIP when used with any of the following "Controllers";

The 2C, SP-RRC, 3P-RRC, and MP-RRC perform similar functions, but are touch-tone controlled and can operate on a "shared line". The K-RRC requires a hardware Security Key connected to the caller's modem providing highly secure access. The N-RRC is a network controller and has it own IP address.
