Add power control to any phone line! PowerPAL offers remote control of a single A/C outlet using any tone dial telephone. PowerPAL connects to an existing dial line, and any telephone equipment: phone, fax, modem. Normal calls pass transparently through PowerPAL; only when special access codes are detected by PAL will the power control functions be enabled. User selectable security, call processing and power control features are examples of such capabilities.
PowerPAL uses a dial telephone line to remotely control A/C power. The user can turn power ON, OFF or Power Cycle (Reboot) by entering DTMF digits using an ordinary tone dial phone. PAL's unique phone line pass-thru allows normal calls to pass through transparently. Only when you enter a secure 'wake-up' code will Pal's power control features become active. The phone line connected to PAL can also be used by other equipment in a normal manner after control of power. With one phone call, you can power up, down or reboot equipment then ring the telephone device connected to PowerPAL's Extension port.
PAL works by listening for dialing tones (DTMF) after it answers a call. If these tones are heard, PAL will respond with the current power status and allow additional tones to control the power. Once power control is completed, the device on PAL's Extension may (or may not) be rung. Four call answering modes, security features and power control options make PowerPAL both easy to use and very flexible. An ON/OFF/Auto switch on PowerPAL allows local manual control.
