WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS
Secure Racking
If secure racked units are installed in a closed or multi-unit rack
assembly, they may require further evaluation by certification agencies.
Consider the following items:
1. The ambient temperature within the rack may be greater than the
room ambient temperature. Installation should be such that the
amount of airflow required for safe operation is not compromised.
The maximum temperature for the equipment in this environment is
122°F (50°C).
2. Install the unit so that it doesn’t become unstable from uneven
loading.
Input Supply
Check nameplate ratings to ensure that there is no overloading of
supply circuits that could have an effect on overcurrent protection and
supply wiring.
Grounding
Maintain reliable grounding of this equipment. Give particular attention
to supply connections when connecting to power strips, rather than
direct connections to the branch circuit.
Shock Hazard
Do not attempt to repair or service this device yourself. Internal
components must be serviced by authorized personnel only.
Disconnect Power
If any of the following events occurs, immediately disconnect the unit
from the outlet and contact Black Box at 724-746-5500.
1. The power cord is frayed or damaged.
2. Liquid has been spilled into the device or the device has been
exposed to rain or water.
Disconnect the Power Supply Cable(s)
The PS565A and PS565AE include one power supply cable. The PS567A
and PS584A include two separate power circuits with a power supply
cable for each circuit. Before attempting to service or remove this unit,
make certain that the power cable (for PS565A or PS565AE) or both
power cables (for PS567A or PS584A) are disconnected.

power outlet (100- to 115-VAC for the PS565A or PS567A; 208- to 230-VAC for
the PS565AE or PS584A). Place the master power switch in the “On” position.
After a brief pause, the plug indicators should switch on in sequence,
indicating that power is on.
CAUTION
Review the safety precautions listed on page 5.

REMOTE POWER MANAGER QUICK START GUIDE
NOTE
For the PS567A or PS584A, if you will only be using plugs 1 through 8,
then you just need to connect Circuit A to your power supply. Likewise,
if you will only be using plugs 9 through 16, then you just need to
connect Circuit B to your power supply.
2. Make sure the Ready indicator is blinking. This means the Remote Power
Manager is operating properly and is ready to receive commands.
3. To initiate switching operations or select configuration parameters, you must
issue commands to the Remote Power Manager via either the network port or
the COM/RS-232 port. It’s optional to connect to both the network port and
the COM/RS-232 port.
a) Network Port: To communicate with the Remote Power Manager via the
network, connect your 10BASE-T or 100BASE-T network interface to the
Remote Power Manager’s network port. For more information on
network port connections, please refer to Section 4.4 in the user’s manual.
NOTE
The Rackmount Remote Power Manager features a half-duplex,
10BASE-T interface. When connecting the manager to a 100BASE-T
interface, most router/switches will autosense to determine if the device
is 100BASE-T or 10BASE-T, and then configure the network interface
accordingly. If your router/switch does not autosense, the manager’s
network interface port must be manually set to half-duplex, 10BASE-T.
b) COM/RS-232 Port: To communicate with the Remote Power Manager via
a local PC, use the supplied null-modem cable to connect your PC COM
port to the Remote Power Manager’s COM/RS-232 port. For more
information, please refer to Section 4.3 in the user’s manual.
Or, connect an external modem to the COM/RS-232 port (see below).
External modem: Use a standard AT® to modem cable to connect an
external modem to the Remote Power Manager’s COM/RS-232 port.
NOTE
When the Remote Power Manager is shipped from the factory, COM/
RS-232 port parameters are set as follows: 9600 bps, 8 data bits, one
stop bit, and no parity. Although these parameters can be easily
redefined, we recommend that you configure your communications
program to accept these default parameters.
10
REMOTE POWER MANAGER QUICK START GUIDE
Communicating with the Remote Power Manager
The Remote Power Manager offers two different user interfaces: a Web-browser
interface and a text interface. The Web-browser interface allows you to contact the
Remote Power Manager via a TCP/IP network using a standard JavaScript®
enabled Web browser (such as Internet Explorer). The text interface consists of a
series of ASCII text menus, accessible via a TCP/IP network, local PC, or external
modem.
NOTE
The Remote Power Manager features a default IP address
(192.168.168.168) and subnet mask (255.255.255.0). If you are contacting
the Remote Power Manager from a node on the same subnet, this allows
initial network access to the operating mode without first setting up the
unit’s network parameters. When attempting to access the Remote
Power Manager from a node that is not on the same subnet, please refer
to Section 5.3.4 in the user’s manual for further instructions.
1. Access the operating mode: This procedure differs slightly, depending on
whether you’re contacting the Remote Power Manager via the Web-browser
interface or the text interface.
a) From the Web-browser interface, start your JavaScript enabled Web
browser. Enter the Remote Power Manager’s default IP address
(http://192.168.168.168) in your browser’s address bar, then press
[Enter]. A password prompt will be displayed. Since at this point the user
name and password have not yet been defined, simply click on OK
without typing in a user name or password. The Remote Power Manager’s
Plug Status screen appears as shown in Figures 3 and 4.

for PS565A and PS565AE.
11
REMOTE POWER MANAGER QUICK START GUIDE
Figure 4. Plug Status screen—Web-browser interface
for PS567A and PS584A.
b) From the text interface:
i. Via Telnet™: Start your Telnet program, then Telnet to the Remote
Power Manager’s default IP address (192.168.168.168). The Remote
Power Manager’s Plug Status screen (Figures 5 or 6, depending on the
model) appears.
ii. Via Local PC: Start your communications program (for example,
HyperTerminal) and press [Enter]. The Remote Power Manager’s Plug
Status screen appears (Figures 5 or 6, depending on the model).
iii. Via modem: Use your communications program to dial the number for
the phone line that is connected to your external modem. To
communicate with the unit via modem, you must first access the
command mode via network or local PC, and use the Serial Parameters
menu to set the port modem to modem.

NOTE
The default communications parameters for the console port are 9600
bps, no parity, 8 data bits, and 1 stop bit.

REMOTE POWER MANAGER QUICK START GUIDE
2. Perform the following tests to make sure that the Remote Power Manager is
responding to commands:
a) Reboot outlet: If you are communicating with the Remote Power Manager
via the Web-browser interface, select the button in the “Boot” column for
plug 1, then click Apply. If you are operating the Remote Power Manager
via the text interface, type /BOOT 1 and press [Enter]. The status
indicator for plug 1 should go off, pause for a moment, and then go back
on (indicating that the boot cycle has been successfully completed).
b) Switch outlet off: From the Web-browser interface, select the button in the
“Off” column for plug 1, then click Apply. From the text interface, type
/OFF 1 and press [Enter]. The status indicator for plug 1 should go off,
indicating that the command has been successfully completed. Leave plug
1 in the “Off” state, then proceed to the next step.
c) Switch outlet on: From the Web-browser interface, select the button in the
“On” column for plug 1, then click Apply. From the text interface, type
/ON 1 and press [Enter]. The status indicator for plug 1 should go on,
indicating that the command has been successfully completed.
3. When you have finished communicating with the Remote Power Manager,
always log off by issuing the appropriate Remote Power Manager command
rather than simply closing your Telnet or communications program. Logging
off with the proper command ensures that the Rackmount Remote Power
Manager has completely exited from operating mode and is not waiting for
the inactivity timeout to elapse before allowing additional connections.
For the Web-browser interface, click on the Log Out button.
For the text interface, type /X and press [Enter].
Please proceed to Chapters 4 and 5 in the user’s manual for complete installation
and configuration procedures.
