Remote Access + IP Control
For those times when a manual reset is required, WattBox IP+ Remote Access enables you to cycle power from anywhere in the world. Turn off a single outlet - or all controlled outlets – right from your PC or Mac’s web browser. And thanks to IP control, you can download popular control system drivers to get simple network-based device management at your fingertips. Visit the Support Tab for more information. See the interface >>
Sophisticated Programming & Scheduling
Advanced doesn’t even begin to cover it. With WattBox IP+ Programming & Scheduling you can create custom events, like power sequencing, and automate commonly performed functions. Does the wireless router act up over time? Automatically reboot it once a week to clear out any gremlins.
Stay informed by setting up customized email alerts for key events that occur, like an auto reboot. This feature makes it easy to spot failure patterns, or just stay on top of what’s happening with each system. With the ability to support multiple email addresses, alerts are sent wherever you need them to go.
The supplied WattBox Utility program takes the guesswork out of initial setup. Once your WattBox conditioners are connected to the network, the Utility automatically detects them and provides a fast, intuitive way to configure IP addresses and launch the browser interface.
Managing Customer Accounts with Dynamic DNS
Which is easier to remember… "126.96.36.199" or "yourcustomer.WattBoxDNS.com". Instead of searching your records for cumbersome IP addresses, Dynamic DNS provides a permanent, easy-to-remember name that never changes – even if the customer’s home is assigned a new IP address by the service provider. You can then store a list of all your customers for quick retrieval by your technicians (Google Drive or Dropbox is recommended). Our free WattBoxDNS service is fast and easy to set up, and it provides maximum uptime thanks to redundant USA-based servers located across the country. Popular third-party DNS servers are also supported.
Rack Mount Versatility
Normal chassis-based power products put the outlets closer to the front of the rack, making them tough to reach and some cases impossible to use wall warts. That just didn't make sense - so our engineers designed a better way. WattBox's exclusive back-of-rack mounting puts those hard-to-reach outlets where you need them most. The included brackets let you mount it in any direction - straight on for traditional installation, up/down/angled for increased visibility when installed at the top or bottom of the rack, you can even recess it for easier cable management and to reduce depth.
Optional Faceplate w/ Display
With competitive chassis-based power products, the faceplate, controls and front outlets have to follow the rear outlets. With the optional WattBox faceplate, you can position the front display wherever you want, regardless of where you've placed the rear outlets. It provides easy access to utility outlets, input voltage and current readouts, USB charging and a convenient power button for system resets or a power-saving vacation mode. The faceplate and power conditioner connect using a short extension cord and RJ45 cable. NOTE: For surge protection of the faceplate and its utility outlets, you must connect it via the “DISPLAY LINK” ports on the back of the 600-series power conditioner.
Whether you're installing into a rack, shelf, or cabinet, we have you covered! Simply turn the small bracket around backwards and the surge protector can easily mount in the back of a cabinet or on a wall. Turn the bracket facing down, apply the included feet, and you can quickly secure it to a shelf or the top of the cabinet.
Power Adapters Welcome
Less is More
We've been there before - you get all the power cords just where you want them, only to forget about the "wall wart" for the IR block or the network switch or the... Then you have to undo something just to make it all fit - oh... and then the bulky "wart" covers up the outlet next to it! To solve this, we have spaced the outlets as far apart as possible and turned them 90-degrees so every outlet can be used. And since those bulky power supplies are prone to falling out, we even supply tie-down straps to keep them in place.
Other manufacturers pad their chassis with lots of dead space in a failed attempt to get the outlets near the back of the rack. This adds cost, wastes space – and more important, really doesn’t solve the problem of outlet accessibility. The back-of-rack WattBox design gets the outlets where you need them and removes the unnecessary bulk to give you more room in the rack.
Powering up large systems all at once can cause an in-rush of current that could potentially trip the circuit breaker or disrupt other equipment. Also, in audio systems, you want the amplifiers to turn on after the preamps to prevent audible "pops" from connected speakers. With this sequencing feature you can individually control and sequence eight of the 12 outlets. You can even do timed sequencing – anywhere from one second to two minutes – through the product’s sophisticated programming schedule.
Protection & ConditioningSafe Voltage
Ever noticed a light that dimmed for a few seconds during a storm? This low-voltage condition is typically caused by power grid issues - and it can have an adverse effect on your equipment. WattBox Safe Voltage will protect your gear by automatically disconnecting it during sustained under AND over voltage conditions. When the input voltage returns to a safe level, the equipment will be reconnected automatically. Noise Filtration
Sensitive A/V equipment is negatively impacted by noisy appliances and other electronics that create interference on the AC line. All WattBox power conditioners feature noise filtration that cleans up this "dirty power" to deliver the purest A/V experience possible. By lowering the audio noise floor and reducing hum, you hear exactly what was intended. Video performance can see an improvement too - with reduced power-related artifacts on HD displays.
Isolated Filter BanksSurge Protection
Not only can noise come from incoming AC line itself, but it is also generated within the system by other components - especially digital devices with switching power supplies and rack fans. The WB-600-SVCE-12 features three independently isolated filter banks to eliminate cross contamination of noise between components. We recommend using one bank for digital source components such as BluRay players and cable/satellite boxes, another for high-current devices such as A/V receivers and amplifiers, and the third bank for sensitive high-speed, networking equipment, AppleTV and control systems.
Surges can come from a variety of sources - from fluctuations at the power company to catastrophic events such as lightning. This excess energy can damage your connected equipment if not properly protected. The Joule rating is a measure of a surge protector's ability to "clamp" this excess energy down to a safe level - the higher the rating, the more protection your equipment has.Fireproof MOVs
MOVs, or Metal Oxide Varistors, are surge protection components that dissipate excess energy in the form of heat. Under extreme conditions, lower quality MOVs can get so hot they catch on fire! WattBox power conditioners feature ceramic-encased MOVs to protect not only your system but your home as well. AC Disconnect
As an added precaution, in the event of a catastrophic spike, a thermal fuse completely disconnects AC power from your system to stop the surge in its tracks before it can get to your connected equipment. All three "legs" of the power (hot, neutral and ground) will disconnect for unsurpassed equipment protection.
Coax, Telephone/Ethernet Protection
Not only can surges creep in on the power, but also telephone, coax and network connections. Dual inputs/outputs for RJ11 or RJ45 connections are provided, with full protection on all 8 pins for telephone and Ethernet applications. Today's sophisticated HD cable and satellite systems have higher bandwidth requirements than they did even a few years ago. Dual 3 GHz coax connections not only protect you against surge, but they deliver premium signal quality with less than 1 dB of attenuation. Pass-through voltage is supported for satellite systems.
GeneralAlways On Outlets
Use the always on outlets for DVRs, network switches and control systems to ensure that critical devices are ready when you need them. A green LED illuminates to indicate power is being supplied to each outlet. NOTE: These outlets will only be turned off when Safe Voltage is protecting from a sustained under/over voltage condition. Flexible Power Cable
Bulky power cables can cause all sorts of frustration when installing in a cabinet or rack. This WattBox 600-series power conditioner includes a 6 ft, detachable IEC cord that is super-flexible for easy wire management. The connector is gold plated to resist corrosion and minimize loss. There's also a locking clip to prevent accidental removal. For custom lengths, replacement cords
are available from 6 inches long up to 15 feet.Cord Labels
Pick a card, any card. Sometimes it can feel like a guessing game when you're servicing equipment and trying to figure out which outlet goes to what piece of gear. To prevent this, apply the supplied labels to each cord and know exactly what's what.Ground Lug
Improper system grounding can lead to audio hum, video scan bars and all sorts of other nasty artifacts. This power conditioner provides a common grounding point for system components using ground leads, such as cable/satellite splitters.
