PowerEgg: 110/230V power detection and switching

Note: Product replaced by PowerEgg2.

PowerEgg combines two functions in one device -power Detector & Control. Detector indicate failures of electricity supply (110/230V, single phase) by relay output. Power Control can switch Off/On power supply output 8A, it's controlled with a low voltage input. The PowerEgg can be connected to any device with digital inputs (DI) and digital outputs (DO).

PowerEggPowerEgg is a "pass-through mains outlet" with two IEC-320 connectors – a plug (C14) at the input, and a socket (C13) at the output.

PowerEgg combines two functions in a single device:

  • DETECTOR: Detects the presence of mains voltage at the input (indication with a change-over contact)

  • CONTROL: Disconnects the output voltage (control with external DC voltage or a contact)


 

Applications

    Mains power detection at the input, output voltage disconnection
  • Alarm activation upon supply voltage / phase failure
  • Voltage monitoring at UPS input/output
  • Remote server restart
  • Switching on additional cooling or ventilation
  • Partial disconnection of the load when running on battery power


Basic features

    Mains power detection at the input, output voltage disconnection
  • DETECTOR Input: Voltage detection (110/230V)
  • DETECTOR interface: Connect to any dry contact DI (digital input)
  • Detect by: Any DI (Digital Input) on Poseidon, Damocles or I/O controller
     
  • CONTROL Output: Turns on/off the 110/230V output voltage (max 8A) – can be connected to any digital output
  • CONTROL interface: Connect to any DO (digital output) - relay or open collector or 3-12V voltage
  • Control by: Any DO (Digital Output) on on Poseidon, Damocles or I/O controller
