With the AK-SecurePowerSwitch it is possible to switch any electrical device on or off and monitor it via your network or set up scheduled on/off times for each day of the week. You can switch up to 10A or 2300 Watts without any restrictions. This device uses a solid-state relay, so there are no arcs or wear & tear like there would be with an electromechanical relay. The electrical terminal is switched in only 10ms, and the reliable solid-state relay has a nearly unlimitied service life.
Other advantages of using a solid-state relay is that it is quiet (no loud clicks), doesn't produce strong electromagnetic emissions, and can't develop burned contacts.
For loads of less than 10 Watts — below the minimum load required for the solid-state relay to function — there is a second relay that takes over. This is useful for attached devices that may go into a standby mode from time to time, for example.
The network connection is established by default via a 1024-bit SSL encryption and can be saved or extended via server and client certificates. The consumption data are registered up to 30 days and can be displayed on the Web monitor.
The power input and output (110-230V AC, 50/60Hz, up to 8A or 2000W continuous) is through standard IEC-60320 C13/C14 receptacles, as used commonly by computer equipment.
The back of the AK-SecurePowerSwitch also has two RJ45 interfaces, acting as a mini-hub, and a DB9F connector that can be used as an RS232 device server. The 10A slow-blow fuse is accessible easily behind a flap.

Configuration and monitoring is done via the network, and is password-protected. The monitor indicates all relevant data in real time, giving you an immediate overview of the consumption or output of the connected electrical device. The default monitoring page looks like this:
The interface is completely customizable. A file system is available in the SecurePowerSwitch's memory which you can reach easily via FTP. There, you can find the monitoring page which you can download, modify to your liking, and then replace on the SecurePowerSwitch.
