RPC-4850-8N Remote Power Controller - User’s Guide
The Circuit Parameters Menu allows you to deﬁne the following parameters:
• Circuit Name: (Up to 16 Characters, Default = undeﬁned.)
Note: Circuit Names cannot begin with a number, dash (-),
underscore character (_), slash character (/) or backslash character (\),
and cannot include non-printable characters, asterisks (*), colons (:),
"plus" symbols (+), space characters or quotation marks.
• Circuit Password: When this password is entered at login, the user will
be able to issue commands to this circuit, and any other circuit that shares
the same password as this circuit as described in Section 18.104.22.168. (Four to
16 Characters, Default = undeﬁned.)
Note: Passwords cannot begin with the forward slash character (/)
or backslash (\) character, and cannot include non printable characters,
asterisks (*), space characters or quotation marks.
• Boot/Seq. Delay: When more than one circuit is switched On/Off or
a reboot cycle is initiated, the Boot/Sequence delay determines how
much time will elapse between switching operations, as described in
Section 22.214.171.124. (Default = 0.5 Second.)
• Power Up Default: Determines how this circuit will react when the
Default command (/D) is invoked, or after power to the unit has been
interrupted and then restored. After the default command is invoked, or
power is restored, the RPC will automatically switch each circuit On or
Off as speciﬁed by the Power-Up Default. (Default = On).
Note: If you have accessed command mode using the System
password, the Default command will apply to all eight RPC circuits. If
you have accessed command mode using a Circuit password, then the
command will only be applied to circuits that share the same password
entered at login.
126.96.36.199. Circuit Passwords and Co-Location Features
The Circuit Passwords allow you to determine which circuit an individual user
will be permitted to control. When a circuit password is entered at the login
prompt, the user will be able to issue switching and reboot commands for
every circuit that shares this same password.
For example, if the password "switch" is deﬁned for circuits 1, 2, and 3, then
a user who logs into command mode using the password "switch" will only be
allowed to issue commands to circuits 1, 2, and 3, but will not be allowed to
issue commands to the remaining circuits. Note that Circuits Passwords do not
allow access to conﬁguration menus, and users are only allowed to view the
status of circuits permitted by their password.
