New interface, email notifications and other features allow for easier power management
Shakopee, Minn. – March 15, 2018 – Cyber Power Systems (USA), Inc., a leader in power protection and management products, has announced major updates to its PowerPanel® Personal software for its uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. The software allows users to automate unattended computer shutdowns and control and monitor the UPS with a USB or serial port. The new version of PowerPanel Personal features a modern design and added functionality to keep users informed of their UPS system and power events.
“Version 2.0 of CyberPower PowerPanel Personal is a complete redesign featuring a cleaner, more intuitive user interface. In response to user feedback, we have enhanced the ability to proactively manage power disruptions and outages,” said Dorian Haro-Gonzalez, senior product manager at CyberPower. “Email-based notifications allow users to remotely stay informed of power disruptions monitored by the UPS that would otherwise adversely affect their equipment. And managed service providers (MSPs) who serve the IT needs of small businesses can stay informed of power events and alert their customers to situations potentially disrupting their operations.”
PowerPanel Personal v2.0 brings users and MSPs improved local, remote and off-hours power management with these functions:
- Set-up email-based notifications to receive UPS system status messages and alerts to stay informed when power disturbances and disruptions occur.
- Record and track power consumption of the equipment connected to the UPS and equivalent CO2 emissions.
- Customize energy cost and CO2 equivalent emissions to track the cost of powering connected devices according to electric utility rates.
- Select type of automatic shutdown during power events: shutdown or hibernate.
CyberPower PowerPanel Personal v2.0 is available as a free download at https://www.cyberpowersystems.com/products/software/power-panel-personal. The software is compatible with Windows operating systems.
Later this year, the company will also release updates to its PowerPanel® Business Edition software supporting virtualized environments.
