The Network Management Card (NMC) in your Power Distribution Unit (PDU) provides power
distribution and management of electrical power to equipment racks. The NMC provides full
management capabilities over a network using Telnet, Secure SHell (SSH), HyperText Transfer Protocol
(HTTP), HTTP over Secure Sockets Layer (HTTPS), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Secure CoPy (SCP),
Modbus, and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) versions 1 and 3.
The PDU also provides the following features: Provides data and event logs; supports input contact and relay output monitoring for use with dry contact sensors; provides the ability to export a user configuration (.ini) file from a configured PDU to one or more unconfigured PDUs without converting the file to a binary file; supports using a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) or server to provide the network (TCP/IP) values for the PDU; supports using the Remote Monitoring Service (RMS); enables you to configure notification through event logging (by the NMC and Syslog), e-mail, and SNMP traps. You can configure notification for single events or groups of events, based on the severity level or category of events; provides the ability to export a user configuration (.ini) file from a configured card to one or more unconfigured cards without converting the file to a binary file; provides a selection of security protocols for authentication and encryption; communicates with StruxureWare; supports Modbus RTU over a serial RS485 port.
