The Squid from SurgeX is a universal AC and DC power distribution unit with a variety of protection, conditioning as well as control and monitoring features. The Squid is designed for maximum installation flexibility due to its versatile 230V / 24V / 12V / 5V power outputs and a compact form factor. It can be mounted to a wall, a table or against the face of an equipment rack, providing utmost freedom in any environment. It is equipped with an internal web server that can be accessed via the SurgeX software, providing configuration options, output control, monitoring interfaces and access to time-stamped data logs, which can include a huge variety of electrical parameters. Multiple communication interface options, such as Ethernet and USB are supported.

Connectivity and Control
All three Squid versions are equipped with a 230V AC input using an IEC C14 connector. Their four 230V AC IEC C13 outlets can handle a combined max. load capacity of 10A. The four AC outlets are joined by two 12V or 24V DC output banks, sharing a load capacity of max. 10A / 5A (depending on model), each with two individual terminal block receptacles for detachable line cords. All four AC receptacles and both DC banks can be individually controlled, monitored and switched. The control options include remote turn-on and turn-off as well as reboot functions, all activated via the SurgeX software. To complete the universal power supply approach there is an unswitched 5V DC output with a detachable terminal as well as two 5V USB-A sockets, sharing a max. load capacity of 3A. It is also possible to toggle the AC input to the AC/DC converter to feed the DC Output 1 / 2 banks. Due to the limitations of the IEC power connector, the maximum power output of the Squid is 10A / 240V / 2400W for all outlets / receptacles combined.
Programming - Triggers & Actions
The extensive programming capabilities of the Squid provide advanced sequencing and scheduling operations. Triggers can be programmed to activate on an "if X then do Y then do Z when no longer X" basis. Trigger sources include various AC power measurements, scheduling, and Autoping. Actions include turning receptacles on and off, cycling a receptacle, executing previously-defined sequences and putting a unit into shutdown. For example, an action can be created to power cycle a network appliance if it fails to respond to a ping. In addition, two physical reset buttons with a variety of functions are located on the front side of the Squid.
Squids internal web server provides a comprehensive portal for configuration, monitoring, and control. The RJ45 connector for Ethernet connectivity is situated on the rear panel, the default IP Address is DHCP assigned. A discovery tool is provided by SurgeX. The mDNS protocol is supported for dynamic device discovery. The Ethernet connection for web server integration supportsHTTP, HTTPS, SNMPv1, SNMPv3, NTP, mDNS, 802.1x, and LDAP protocols with TLS, SSL and SNMP V3 single sign-on options.
Metering is performed at the system level and includes AC line voltage, AC neutral-ground voltage, AC current, AC power, AC line frequency, AC power factor, AC voltage crest factor, AC energy and temperature. The measurements of voltage, current and power are true RMS. Thus, the current draw and energy consumption of non-linear electronic loads which have a power factor of less than unity will be reported correctly. The types of time-stamped events which can be recorded are triggers, surge protection failed, power outage, network events, outlet changes, shutdown events and firmware upgrades. The historical data is a record of measured electrical parameters and may be adjusted to sample certain items at specific intervals. The max/min/avg electrical parameters are saved in the internal storage for 30 days.
The USB OTG port features a microUSB connector can be used for OOB diagnostics, configuration and troubleshooting IP connectivity issues. A discovery tool is provided by SurgeX alternatively, the IP can be directly reached via web-browser. The web server will always be accessible through this USB OTG port (HTTP at port 80).
The Squid is very compact to fit along, behind or near equipment and can be installed horizontally or vertically, mounted to a wall or table. The universally mountable unit is encased in a magnetic shielding steel enclosure and can thus also be mounted to the face of an equipment rack. Integral mounting brackets are available to install Squid, following the appropriate local regulations and requirements.
