NETIO PowerPDU 8QS is a Power Distribution Unit with eight power outputs (8x IEC-320 C13) controlled and metered over a LAN.

It fits into a 19” cabinet (1U). Each output can be switched on/off individually. PowerPDU 8QS supports two channels for electrical measurements: the PDU as a whole (all outputs combined), and the first output separately (All Outputs + 1). A digital input (DI) can be used to control the outputs or count S0 pulses (electricity meter output).

NETIO PowerPDU 8QS Power Distribution Unit can be configured with a web browser (allows output control, connection to NETIO Cloud, Open API communication settings, etc.).

Thanks to the Open API, integration with third-party systems using various protocols (JSON, Modbus/TCP, SNMP, MQTT-flex, Telnet, …) is easy. Ready-made AV drivers make it simple to connect the NETIO Power Distribution Unit to professional Audio/Video systems such as Neets, Crestron, Control4, RTI, Savant and more.

With the NETIO Cloud service, the outputs can be controlled from anywhere. The NETIO Cloud service, provided for a fee, uses SSL security and servers in Europe. The NETIO Mobile2 app controls each output individually over LAN (local network).  To switch the outputs on in a sequence, a power-up delay can be configured for each output.



  1. In IT, the smart PowerPDU 8QS is typically used to distribute electricity in a 19″ rack (cabinet) in a data center.
  2. Saving energy in meeting rooms (Scheduler switches equipment on/off at predefined time).
  3. Controlling the power (to TV sets, audio systems, lighting) from various AV systems in stores, smart homes, museums, digital signage applications.
  4. The outputs of several NETIO products can be controlled using the NETIO Mobile 2 app, as long as the app is connected to the same network.
  5. The outputs of multiple devices can be controlled centrally using the NETIO Cloud service (for a fee).

Each of eight outputs can be independently controlled from the web interface (switched on / off or power-cycled). To switch the outputs on in a sequence (after a power-up or when power is restored), a power-up delay interval can be configured for each output individually.

  • NETIO PowerPDU 8QS Power Distribution Unit fits into 19″ cabinet (1U). A metal bracket is included.
  • The NETIO Mobile2 app controls each output individually over LAN (local network) or NETIO Cloud.
  • NETIO Cloud is a SSL-secured service for controlling multiple devices from anywhere (Web or Cloud API).
  • Open API (such as XML/JSON over HTTP, SNMP, Modbus/TCP, MQTT-flex, Telnet and others…) enables integration with third party systems (controlling the outputs over the network).
  • DI (Digital Input) can be for example connected to a button or used as a S0 pulse counter for reading energy consumption from an external electricity meter. Its state is available through API.
  • AV drivers make it easy to connect NETIO sockets to a professional Audio/Video control systems such as Neets, Crestron, Control4, RTI, Savant and more.
  • Electrical values are measured with high accuracy for a whole PDU (at the input) and for Output1.


PowerPDU 8QS can be controlled over the local network using the NETIO Mobile 2 app (for Android mobile devices). The mobile app can be used to control several PDU units and all their outputs. The mobile device must be connected to the same LAN (connect the phone/tablet via WiFi). NETIO Mobile2 can scan the LAN and discover connected devices. WiFi connection to the LAN is required. *For the moment, NETIO Mobile 2 is not available for iOS users. We recommend using third-party app


With the Scheduler (timer) function, each output can be individually switched on or off at specified times and days of week. The switching times are easily configured in a graphical interface.

  • Each output can have its own schedule:
  • When a schedule is active, outputs can still be controlled with NETIO Cloud, the web interface and Open API
  • Scheduler does not need an internet connection.
  • A time source is needed – provided over the internet or, for example, by a local ADSL / WiFi router.
