PCI-based intelligent power strip for IP addressability?

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Dan Stromberg, May 4, 2005.

  1. Is there such a thing as a PCI card that you can plug into an old,
    cast-off x86 box, to control 1 or more 110 Volt US power connections, to
    get remote, IP-based power cycling of equipment at a low cost?

    If yes, are there any that work with linux?

    Perhaps better still, does anyone have a "do it yourself" website about
    how to build one?

    Thanks!

  2. Not IP based, but serial port interface power control devices.
    http://www.eeci.com Look for the AR devices. Never used them under
    linux, but they should work. There's some C code on my wiki (DOS and
    OS/2) to work with the AR-2... Should work for linux too.
