GRAPHIC MONITORING OF UPS AND ENVIRONMENTAL SENSOR STATUS PowerShield3 is a simple but powerful UPS management tool. A graphic version is available for all operating systems.
DETAILED DISPLAY OF ALL UPS AND ENVIRONMENTAL SENSOR PARAMETERS PowerShield3 provides all the information required for first level diagnostics.
EVENTS LOG AND GRAPHIC DISPLAY OF MAIN PARAMETERS All changes in UPS operating states are logged, as well as the main physical values and parameters. These constantly recorded values are displayed in graphic format.
UPS CONTROL PROGRAMMING This allows you to automate all the actions normally carried out by the user: turning the server on and off, UPS battery test, etc.
BLOCK DIAGRAM OF OPERATION A display of UPS operation in the form of a block diagram makes the analysis of UPS operating states more intuitive.
PowerShield³ provides efficient, userfriendly UPS management, displaying all major operational information such as input voltage, applied load and battery charge. The software also provides detailed information on fault conditions and UPS operating states. Developed with a client/server architecture, it is the ideal tool for managing multi-platform network systems.
PowerShield³ FULL version: supports up to maximum of 32 UPS for all operating systems.
With sequential and priority-based shutdown, PowerShield³ provides unattended shut-down of all networked PCs, saving any active work on the most widely used applications. Users can definethe shutdown priorities for the various computers in the network and can also customise the procedure.
With multi-platform compatibility, PowerShield³ uses the TCP/IP communications protocol to achieve standardised management and monitoring across the widest possible range of platforms. This makes it possible to monitor computers with different operating systems from a single console, for example monitoring a UNIX server from a PC running Windows and also connecting to UPS located in different geographical areas using dedicated networks (intranets) or the Internet.
With event scheduling, PowerShield³ users can program their own shutdown procedures, detailing power-off and power-up scenarios to increase system security and save energy.
With messages management, PowerShield3 keeps users constantly informed about the status of UPS and environmental sensors, either locally or via network messages. A list can also be defined of users who should receive e-mails, faxes, voice messages and SMS messages when faults or sudden mains power supply failures occur.
Integrated SNMP agent: PowerShield³ features an integrated SNMP agent for UPS management which can send all the information required and generate traps using the RFC1628 standard, and environmental sensors.
Secure, easy to use and connect; communication is now password protected to ensure UPS system security. Using the new discovery/ browsing function, all UPS connected to a protected computer and/or LAN can be displayed in a list format for monitoring. In the absence of a LAN connection, support is provided for modem-based communication.
Developed for virtualized systems
PowerShield³ permits to initiate live migration of virtual machines (VM) to automatically and transparently migrate VMs during power disturbance to protected devices by UPS with migration systems such as VMware vMotion™ and Microsoft Live Migration. PowerShield3 can monitor and manage UPS either inside or outside the data centre. Can also measure power consumption to help calculate power usage effectiveness (PUE), a the standard metric utilized for gauging data centre power efficiency.
Security, easy to use and connect, communication is password protected to ensure UPS system security. Using the new discovery/browsing function, all the RIELLO UPS connected to a protected computer or LAN can be displayed in a list format. In the absence of a LAN connection, support is provided for modem based communication.
