Tripp Lite Switched ATS / Auto Transfer Switch provides a redundant power option for single-corded network devices. Dual input cords support separate connection to PRIMARY and SECONDARY power sources. The ATS will normally maintain continuous output to all outlets as derived from the primary input cable. If the primary power source becomes unstable or fails altogether, the ATS will switch over to the secondary power source until the primary input is restored and stable. The built-in Java-free HTML5-based LX Platform network interface enables full remote access for PDU status monitoring and email notifications via secure web browser, SNMP, telnet or SSH. It supports 10/100 Mbps auto-sensing for optimum communication with an Ethernet network. Optional EnviroSense2 modules (sold separately) provide a variety of environmental monitoring capabilities. Protocols supported include IPv4, IPv6, HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP, SNMPv1, SNMPv2, SNMPv3, telnet, SSH, FTP, DHCP, BOOTP and NTP. Switched PDU features include individually controllable output receptacles and built-in network interface. Super-fast switchover between primary and secondary power sources occurs within milliseconds. ATS functionality is supported by any two compatible AC power sources, regardless of phase angle, to support a variety of advanced redundant power networking applications. Enables fault tolerant hot-swappable UPS protection when used with a single UPS and fully redundant UPS protection when each cord is connected to a separate UPS system. In a two-UPS environment, the primary input cable must be supported by a full time sine wave UPS with zero transfer time. Tripp Lite SmartOnline series is highly recommended for use as the primary UPS in a two-UPS application. ATS configurations utilizing separate mains circuits, backup generators and even separate utility power grid feeds are fully supported. On-board ATS processor constantly evaluates power quality on both input sources to prevent transfer to the secondary source when unavailable or of lower quality than the primary source. Front input LED's display primary or secondary power availability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Important details I was surprised to learn a couple important details after receiving this item that would have made a significant impact on my purchase. The primary AC source CANNOT be a line-interactive UPS. All of the APC SU and SUA model UPS's are line-interactive. According to APC support the only NON-interactive devices they make are the "Back" models (home use; this includes power conditioners. You may use these sources as the SECONDARY input; plugging the primary directly into the wall was the only option for me. Plugging directly into the wall raised additional concerns; it appears this product does NOT provide any surge protection or power conditioning features. Make sure you have a non-interactive inline device to provide these features. Aside from the mentioned limitations the device has performed as expected. Setup was easy, the 20AMP version has the round L5-20P connectors but comes with 2 adaters to allow connection to standard NEMA 5-20P. The network interface is DHCP by default.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I've been using these devices for a number of years and they've always provided good reliable service. Easy to install and configure, easy to use web GUI. And since every device in my data center runs through one, the SNMP capabilities allow me to see track my entire power utilization in one centralized place. One caveat. I'm normally a text-UI guy, but this one is so counter-intuitive that I exclusively use the web interface. I once shut down an entire PDU through the text UI when I was just trying to power cycle one device. That event was what taught me to disable the text UI and just go with the web.
