DIGITUS, a brand which has been successfully present in the international market for almost 16 years, has announced that its DIGITUS Professional line of series now includes two new power supply rails - ASL-PM201-RD for professionally network systems and the ASL-PM211-MIP for Home Automation.
The two newly launched rails can be controlled through the Internet by cell phone, notebook or PDA, said DIGITUS official.
The ASL-PM201-RD is stated to reduce the damage caused by failure of a servers and routers. Safety of such devices is critical in the professional network technology, as this can lead to a high amount of damage. To address this issue, the new rail uses a constant signal exchange (PING) to monitor the availability of the device to be powered.
Also, the responding device can be restarted by the reset function if there is no return signal to the rail. Thus, in such a situation, the connection can be reached, even on the weekend, without having to start the device manually.
Additionally, the rail can also be used to guide devices like access routers, servers, DSL / cable modems and access or safety systems by remote control so that they can be switched on and off according to requirements.
The ASL-PM211-MIP for Home Automation is designed for operating lights, PCs or window blinds by remote control. With this, the Internet capable socket rail can be used to access the local network via cell phone, notebook or PDA and connected devices can be operated by remote control.
