•   Hardware Evaluations
•   Software Evaluations
What’s the PPR supposed to do?
• Control device power using schedule
• Allow automated control
• Minimize need for user input after schedule is


• Current power strips have few features
     No programmable timing schedule
     No interactive user interface
     No dimming capability
  Few methods to exercise schedule control over
   electronic devices.
  Unable to control power when away from device

• "Smart" power strip with enhanced features
   o Programmable Timing Schedule for AC-switching
   o PC software application

• Possible Target Markets
  • Automation
  • Security
         Technical Constraints

• Real time clock must operate at all times, under all
  power conditions

• Timing schedule accuracy must include Years,
  Months, Days, Hours, Minutes, Seconds

• PC is required to operate user interface

• Must supply power to internals from 120VAC

• Switching power must operate up to 120VAC at 15A
  (NEMA 5-15 Standard) [1]
Practical Constraints
              Health and Safety

 • Must conform to Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
    standards for safety
     o UL 758 standard for appliance wiring material
     o Within the UL 758
         Construction
         Performance
         Thermal and Chemical property tests
         Electrical and Flame properties
         Manufacturing
         Labeling
         Production
• Must be manufactured for less than $50
  o Retail at ~$100
  o Comparable products retail from $40 to $90
  o Must be able to compete at a reasonable price
  o Scheduling feature
  o Operates without direct interaction from user
•Isole Plug Load
– $90
– Requires user interaction

•Smart Strip Power Strip
– $40-50
– Requires equipment status interaction

                                                                   [3], [4]
