RPM1521
1. Product Introduction
The RPM1521 is an Internet ready SNMP device designed with integrated versatile
functions including power control, remote web administration, event alerts into one single
unit, which helps system administrators or IT personnel to monitor and control their
connected equipment and take preventive measures when needed.
Allows an
administrator to remotely control the AC power for two connected devices, such as:
servers, routers, modems, DVRs, security and telephone equipment.
The RPM1521 offers; easy set up, user-friendly communications and control methods.
Easily connects to the LAN using normal Ethernet connection. Once connected and
properly set up, the administrator can manage the AC power of the devices from anywhere
in the world via a web browser, which greatly reduces the need for on-site service.
Additional benefits from employing this intelligent power distribution system including:
•
•
•
Improves administrative efficiencies with remote power monitoring and control
Reduces system down time without dispatching service personnel to remote locations
Monitoring and management from anywhere in the world

2. Installation and Setup
2-1 Hardware Installation
The RPM1521 is intended to be install in a temperature controlled environment that is free of
conductive contaminants. Select a location, which will provide good air circulation for the
RPM1521 at all times. Avoid locations near heating devices, water or excessive humidity, or
where the RPM1521 is exposed to direct sunlight. Route power cords so they cannot be
walked on or damaged.
CONNECTING THE RPM1521 TO AN AC SOURCE
CAUTION - To reduce the risk of fire, connect only to a circuit provided with 20 amperes
maximum branch circuit over-current protection in accordance with the National Electric Code,
ANSI/NFPA 70. Plug the RPM1521 into a two pole, three wire, grounded receptacle only. Do
not use extension cords, adapter plugs, or surge strips. Do not plug the RPM1521 to the
output of a Simulated Sine Wave UPS.

2-2 Setup-Procedure
The minimum requirement to operate the RPM1521 is to setup the IP Address, subnet
mask, and the gateway. The IP Search Utility program supports most Windows
Operating Systems (Windows NT4.0, 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 7).
There are two ways to perform the Setup-Procedure:
1. Open a web browser and input the default IP address.
and input the information.
2. Use the IP Search Utility program (on the CD).
Then open the Network page
The default settings are:
IP address: 192.168.1.10
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway address: 192.168.1.1
Account name: admin (lower case)
Password: admin (lower case)
1. The workstation and the RPM1521 must be in the same LAN to perform the
Setup-Procedure.
2. The Windows Firewall must be turned off to operate the IP Search Utility program.
3. From the Start menu select the Control Panel.
4. Select the Windows Firewall.
5. Select Off and then click the OK button.
6. Put the RPM1521’s CD (provided) in the CD-ROM drive.
7. Launch the IP Search Utility program.
9
RPM1521
8. Click on the Refresh button to search for all of the RPM1521’s in the LAN. A list of the
RPM1521s will be displayed.
9. Click on the RPM1521. Configure the IP address, the Gateway and the NetMask
(Subnet) and then click on the Configure button twice. You will see the IP address, the
Gateway and the NetMask (Subnet) for the selected RPM1521 in the list change.
10. Repeat Step number 8 and 9 for all of the RPM1521 in the list.
11. Once all of the RPM1521s are setup, close the IP Search Utility program and turn the
Windows Firewall back on.
12. This completes the initial Setup-Procedure of the RPM1521.
13. Now you are able to monitor and control the RPM1521 via a Web Browser.
