5.3. Boot/On/Off Commands
These commands are used to Boot or toggle the On/Off status of the TPS's two switched plugs. If the
same password has been applied to both switched plugs, commands can be directed to Plug 1, Plug 2, or
both switched plugs. If a separate User Password has been assigned to each plug, then commands can
only be applied to the plug that is owned by the User Password that was entered at log in. Plugs may be
specified by name or number.
•When User Mode is active, commands will only be applied to plugs owned by the User's
password. Commands will not effect a plug owned by another User Password.
•When System Mode is active, commands can be applied to both switched plugs.
•Wait for the "TPS>" prompt to appear before entering commands. The prompt will not
reappear until the previous command is complete.
•Commands are not case sensitive. All commands are invoked by pressing [Enter].
•If command confirmation is enabled, the TPS will display the Status Screen after the
Boot/On/Off commands are successfully completed.
