Accessing an Enlogic PDU Using a Static IP Address
  1. Connect a standard Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the EN Series PDU and the other end of the Ethernet cable directly to your laptop/PC.
    Note: A cross over cable is not required.
  2. When the PDU completes a live connection, the Ethernet port on the PDU shows a solid green light on the left and a flashing yellow light on the right to indicate successful connectivity.
  3. When connected, and with no DHCP service found, the PDU will revert to a static IP address of 192.168.0.1
  4. Assign your laptop/PC’s Ethernet port an IP address in the 192.168.0.2-244/24 range.
    Note: Do NOT assign 192.168.0.1 to your laptop/PC.
  5. In a standard web browser, enter the URL ‘http://192.168.0.1’ and configure the PDU, or access the CLI using SSH at 192.168.0.1:22

Note: The default username is admin. The default password is 12345678.
Configuring the PDU with a static IP address overrides the default IP address.

Retrieving information from individual PDU outlets.

Retrieving information about current, voltage, power etc. from an individual outlet can be achieved in two different ways. Taking current as an example:

The MIB file contains the entire function tree for the PDU, including functions such as outlet current delivery, see in the MIB:

pduOutletMeteredStatusCurrent “Returns the current draw, in tenths of Amps, of the load on the PDU outlet being queried.” ::= { pduOutletMeteredStatusEntry 5 }

In the web interface you can find this info in the left-hand window “PDU explorer”, click on the small triangle next to the yellow folder marked Outlet Power Management and you will see a list of all the outlets. If you click on an outlet, you will see a new page of information appear including current, voltage, active power etc.

Connecting to a PDU using a LAN cable

The EN series PDU can be accessed using its static IP address.

  1. Connect a standard Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the EN Series PDU.
  2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your Laptop/PC.
  3. When the PDU connects to a network, the Ethernet port on the PDU shows a solid green light on the left and a flashing yellow light on the right to indicate successful connectivity.
  4. Assign your Ethernet port an IP address in the 192.168.0.0/24 range.
  5. When connected, with no DHCP service found, the PDU will revert to a static IP address of 192.168.0.1.

Note: DO NOT assign the Laptop/PC IP address as 192.168.0.1.
In a standard web browser, enter the ‘http://192.168.0.1’ and proceed to configure the PDU, or access the CLI using SSH or Telnet (NB. Telnet is disabled by default).

Note: The default username is admin. The default password is 12345678. Configuring the PDU with a static IP address will override this feature.

Setup should follow the below steps:

  1. Connect the network cable for ‘Network A’ into the Ethernet port on PDU ‘A’. Then connect the network cable for ‘Network B’ into the Ethernet port on PDU ‘B’. Each PDU is now networked separately (see IP Addressing -Guide for configuration options).
  2. Connect the port labelled Rs485-2 on PDU ‘A’ to the port labelled Serial+Rs485-1 on PDU ‘B’, using a standard ethernet cable. A Rs485 Daisy Chain now exists between PDUs ‘A’ and ‘B’ where ‘A’ is the master.
  3. Now connect the port labelle Rs485-2 on PDU ‘B’ to the port labelled Serial+Rs485-1 on PDU ‘A’, using a standard ethernet cable. A Rs485 Daisy Chain now exists between PDUs ‘B’ and ‘A’ where ‘B’ is the master.

Each PDU is now networked separately but connected to the other PDU as a master via the two way daisy chain, thus making data from itself and it’s slave accessible on both Networks ‘A’ and ‘B’. The level of access granted to each network is governed by the role(s) assigned to the users on that network, within each PDUs Web Interface (see PDU and Inline Meter Web Interface- Guide and Setting Up Access Roles- Guide for more information). For example, Network A has administrator access, while Network B has view only access.

    The remote assistance from Enlogic support staff

Once you have purchased a EA9119 cable you will need a laptop/desktop with a serial port or a USB to Serial cable and with the ability to allow remote sessions from third party support tools like the following

Email Enlogic support

  • Europe – support@emea.enlogic.com
    USA/Canada – support@amer.enlogic.com
    Asia – support@apac.enlogic.com

Raise a support case including your Product number and serial. Enlogic will arrange a date and time suitable to you for a support member to remote in and resolve your issue.

What is the typical power consumption of an EN Series PDU

PDUs consume power in two ways:
– in their on-board electronics; in power supplies, displays, control circuits etc.
– in the power losses due to resistance of the internal wiring and connections.

Enlogic PDUs benefit from a robust design and high quality components and assembly methods to minimize power losses.

Typical values for EN series PDUs are shown in the table below.
