Eaton Intelligent Power Protector

Eaton’s Intelligent Power Protector (IPP) software provides graceful, automatic shutdown of network devices during a prolonged power disruption, preventing data loss and saving work-in-progress. As part of Eaton’s power network management system, IPP works alongside Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager to deliver comprehensive power management and protection.

  • Avoid data loss by gracefully shutting down computers and virtual machines/servers powered by an Eaton UPS during an extended power outage
  • Watchdog capability keeps kiosks with a PC or server running smoothly by automatically identifying hang-ups and rebooting the machine
  • Provides redundancy capability for dual-cord servers
  • Easy-to-use interface from any PC with a Web browser
  • Acquires UPS information through local or network communication and can be easily deployed on many computers
  • Can be remotely managed, configured and updated with Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager
  • Can communicate with the protected device directly (via USB) or through the network (via Web/SNMP card)
