APB (Auto Push Board)
The basic APB will automatically push the power button on the installed PC after a power outage (intentional or unintentional). No user intervention is required. This function is designed for PC's with ATX style motherboards and a BIOS that requires the power button to be pushed after restoring power from a power failure before normal operation can resume.

It has a separate 9VAC transformer power supply so it is not dependent on the power state of the PC. It independently shadows the power and should be connected to the same AC source as the PC.

The APB installs in a vacant opening on the back panel of a PC (no card slot is required) and cable connects to the AC power button. The "push delay time" and the "push duration" are selected in an eight-bit dip switch on the APB.

I-APB (Intelligent Auto Push Board)
The I-APB includes the basic APB functions. Additionally, it can also be controlled by any of the CPS external Remote Reboot Controllers (x-RRC). It is also addressable so multiple units can be daisy-chained from the same controller. Up to 32 two unique numeric character addresses can be entered into the dip switches. Other addressable CPS Base Units such as the IPN (AC Power) can be intermixed within the "daisy chain". The physical connections are made with standard telephone cables through the additional "upstream/downstream" RJ-11 connectors on the I-APB.

The I-APB also has a connection for the PC's Reset if available. There are separate controller commands for the Power and the Rest Button connections.

The Controllers provide addressable access to the I-APB via telephone lines or a TCP/IP network. Compatible controllers are:



  • SP-RRC and 3P-RRC (Touch-tone telephone line interface).

  • N-RRC(TCP/IP network interface).

  • An RS-232 Serial Port adapter is also available which allows a PC to be used as a controller to issue commands to the I-APB through its serial port
