The Lantronix SLB comes in 100-120V AC and 200-240V AC models. Both models provide similar remote management and power control functionality.


One of the key features of the SLB are its security and authentication support. Secure Shell, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), NIST-certified AES encryption, and packet filtering help secure the connection. A firewall filters connection attempts to a specified IP address, port, or protocol based up on a configurable rule set.


There are configurable user rights for up to 128 users, and per-port user permissions limit capabilities where required. The SLB supports a number of remote authentication protocols, such as LDAP, Active Directory, NIS, RADIUS, Kerberos, and TACACS+.


Power management extends beyond the normal on/off/reboot functions to provide per-outlet current consumption measurements and staggered power-up of individual outlets. In addition, an over-current monitor/alarm can notify the administrator via numerous methods when exceeding pre-defined operational parameters.


The SLB can operate in temperature extremes from 32-122 Fahrenheit and 10 to 90% humidity. This is important in the dense configurations in branch offices, which are often contained in wiring closets. The Lantronix SLB is covered by a five-year warranty.
