Pakedge P8 Intelligent Power Distribution Unit

The Pakedge P8 Intelligent Power Distribution Unit is designed to provide the highest degree of AC power protection and comprehensive on/off power startup and shutdown capabilities in a custom-installation or smart home network. The P8 provides eight AC outlets and has an Ethernet connection, making it ideal for smaller installations or where space is at a premium. Each outlet can be remotely turned on and off via access to a LAN, by e-mail or by using Pakedge’s BakPak app for Apple® IOS, Android devices and web browser interface. The P8 has auto-ping self-healing and equipment reboot functionality. The P8 will ping a connected device every 15 seconds and automatically reboot the device if necessary while notifying the dealer via e-mail. This capability saves the dealer a support call to the homeowner’s residence. The P8 can be programmed to schedule power reboot events at regular intervals. It can also monitor AC power consumption. The P8 is designed for easy installation, with pre-labeled AC outlets and Ethernet connections. It can be used with Pakedge’s 1U brush plate and 2U/3U cover plate for a clean, neat appearance. The P8 can also be used with optional heat and humidity sensors.
