Power is great, but it’s how you can control it that counts
Since the advent of network communications, engineers have found ways to make life easier by connecting devices together. This has, of course, extended into the realm of power, with UPS network management making life easier for admins and technicians with widespread devices under their watch.
These devices go by many names: smart cards, network cards, or remote management cards, but it all refers to the same thing: SNMP, or Simple Network Management Protocol. Learn more in our SNMP Video: Becoming Master of Your Power after the jump.
Complete Control of your UPS from Anywhere on the Network
Minuteman SNMP cards are an interface between the UPS and the network. Cards can communicate the status of a UPS and issue commands to it. All Minuteman SNMP cards support SNMP and HTTP protocols for user access. Through the SNMP NMS and/or Web Browser, users can monitor the UPS status, issue commands, and set up the SNMP card through the network.
