5.3.1. Applying Commands to Several Plugs
Boot/On/Off commands can be applied to one plug, several plugs, a range of plugs or all plugs
as described below:
Note: When commands are applied to several plugs, the NPS will delay for
approximately 1 second between plug operations. For example, when switching all
plugs On, the NPS will switch Plug 1 On, delay one second, switch Plug 2 On, delay
one second, and etc.
1. Single Plug: To apply a command to a single plug, enter the number or name for that
plug. For example:
/ON 3 or /ON ROUTER.
2. Several Plugs: To apply a command to several plugs, enter plug names or numbers with
each name/number separated by a plus sign or a space. For example:
/OFF 1+3+7 or /OF ROUTER DSU/CSU
3. Range of Plugs: To apply a command to several plugs in sequence, enter the plug names
or numbers with each name/number separated by a colon (:). For example:
/BOOT 1:4 or /BOOT ROUTER:DSU/CSU
4. All Plugs: To apply a command to all owned plugs, enter an asterisk in place of the name
or number. For example:
/ON * or /BO *
5. Plugs with the Same Name: If you have assigned an identical plug name to several
plugs, all such plugs can be addressed with one command. For example, if plugs 3, 4 and
5 have been named "ATMSWTCH", then all three plugs can be switched with the same
command as shown below:
/ON ATMSWTCH or /BOOT ATMSWTCH
5.4. The Default Command
The Default Command (/D) sets all plugs to their default On/Off status. The default status is
set using the Plug Parameters menus described in Section 4.5. Plugs will be set to these
defaults when /D is invoked, or after a power interruption. To set all plugs to defaults, type /D
and press [Enter].
•When User Mode is active, this command will only be applied to plugs owned by
the User's password. The command will not be applied to plugs owned by other
•When the System Mode is active, this command will be applied to all eight plugs.
•This command will always be applied to all owned plugs. It cannot be applied to
only one plug.
