PowerCable 2PZ



Smart Power Cable 2-Way

What is it?

PowerCable 2PZ is flat PDU (Power Distribution Unit) with dual power output. It’s LAN or WiFi connected PDU for remote power control (remote restarting) of TV, screens, multimedia playesrs or other AV or IT devices. There are 2 power outputs (110/230V max 16A) available on terminal blocks.

NETIO PowerCable 2PZ is flat PDU (Power Distribution Unit) with LAN connectivity using a RJ45 (Ethernet) or WiFi. Both power outputs can be individually switched On/Off (restarted) on the device website, from Mobile App or NETIO Cloud (web service).

PowerCable 2PZ we call “flat PDU” because can be installed behind TV, under double ceiling or to similar limited space. PowerCable 2PZ is delivered without power cables, user have to install power input and 1 or 2 power output cables to the terminal block inside plastic housing with using screw driver.

PowerCable 2PZ PDU supports Ping WatchDog and week-based Scheduler feature.

Open API enables integration into third-party systems using a wide range of protocols (JSON, Modbus/TCP, XML, SNMP, MQTT, Telnet, ..).

With the NETIO Cloud service, the output(s) can be switched On/Off from anywhere. The NETIO Cloud service, provided for a fee, uses SSL/TLS security and servers in Europe.
Mobile App “NETIO Mobile 2” can be used for remote contol on the same LAN or via NETIO Cloud.

AV drivers make it easy to connect NETIO sockets to professional Audio/Video control systems such as RTI, ELAN, SAVANT, BrightSign, Crestron, Control4 etc.


  • The PowerCable 2PZ LAN/WiFi PDU is typically used for remote restarting.
  • Each output can be switched on/off or power-cycled (short-off) from the device web interface or the NETIO Cloud service.
  • Controlling the outputs using Open API (JSON, Modbus/TCP, SNMP, MQTT-flex, Telnet, …)
  • Integration with various third-party programs and applications.
  • Controlling the device from the NETIO Mobile 2 (LAN or NETIO Cloud).
  • The NETIO Cloud service, provided for a fee, enables central control of outputs of multiple devices in various locations.


Switch On / Off or Restart (short Off) each output using these methods:

  • From the device website
  • From the NETIO Cloud (web service).
  • From NETIO Mobile 2 (Mobile App) over LAN or NETIO Cloud (web service)
  • Using build in Week-Scheduler function you can define several On/Off intervals per each output.
  • With build in PING WatchDog function, you can restart any LAN device when not responding to PINGs from NETIO PDU (Device frozen).
  • Using AV drivers you can control Outputs from many Audio Video SW (Crestron, Control4, Kramer, BrightSign, …)
  • There are plenty Open APIs (protocols) to control outputs / meter power consumption.
  • For example: JSON or XML over HTTP, SNMP v1 or v3, Modbus/TCP, MQTT, URL-API and others.
  • Using Windows executable PyNetio swtich / Toggle any NETIO output(s) from the Windows Desktop.


The product can be connected to one network only at a time. When a live RJ45 (Ethernet) connection is detected, the product uses the LAN. When the RJ45 cable is disconnected or the link layer is inactive, the product switches to WiFi.

For the WiFi connection, the product uses an internal antenna. When the device is installed in metal cabinet, WiFi distance will be very limited.

The WiFi connection can be configured using the AP mode.
For WiFi setup without LAN, the product features a built-in WiFi AP as well as a wizard to guide you through the selection of a WiFi network and configuring the connection. The mode switch button is located under the top panel.


The product can be connected to NETIO Cloud. Control hundreds of outputs from a single web screen. NETIO Cloud is an ideal solution for remote control and restarting. The NETIO Cloud service is a paid service.

  • All devices produced by the NETIO products company can be connected to NETIO Cloud.
  • Thanks to the included “Welcome credit”, the service can be used at no cost for the first 3 years.
  • Devices connected to the service can be controlled securely from anywhere over the Web (HTTPs).
  • NETIO Cloud can be used in parallel with another Open API protocol.
  • Communication with the Cloud service is secured (port 8883 – MQTTs – TLS)
  • NETIO Cloud uses a separate Open API (MQTTS protocol) to control all devices linked to a given user account.


This device can controlled from mobile App NETIO Mobile 2 (Android & iOS).

  • LAN: NETIO Mobile 2 can control all outputs of devices within local LAN (WiFi).
  • Cloud: User account on the NETIO Cloud service can be connected to the mobile app.You can do with mobile app
  • Control individual power outputs – switch ON, switch OFF, RESET
  • Read power consumption data (A, W, Wh), if this one output (device) supports energy metering
  • Activate / deactivate the week Scheduler function per each output
  • Sorting of outputs within groups (by function or location)
  • Output grouping – default group per one device can be changed individualy
  • Group control – Switch the whole group of outputs On / Off
  • Group control – Activate / deactivate the week Scheduler function for each output in whole group
  • Change output / device name (visible in the mobile application only)
  • Add multiple devices to the mobile app.
  • LAN discover: Search your LAN/Wifi network for NETIO devices.


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 functionality can be enabled/disabled (not edited) for each output from the NETIO Mobile 2 app.
  • Scheduler does not need an internet connection. However, a time source is needed – provided over the internet or, for example, by a local ADSL / WiFi router.
  • For special usage the Scheduler can be combined with PAB (Power Analyze Blocks):
  • Switching time is based on current sunrise/sunset based on your location
  • Whatever happend, defined output can be switched off on defined time (midnight for example).


Device is equipped with WatchDog PING (IP WatchDog) functionality.
The WatchDog function monitors PING (ICMP) responses on the network. The monitored device (router, TV screen, IP video camera, …) can be easily restarted without human intervention. The function can be configured over the web interface.
The PING based WatchDog can control any device output.


We can offer you drivers (integrated device support) for these AV (Audio Video) platforms:

  • BrightSign
  • Control 4
  • Crestron
  • Domotz
  • ELAN
  • Kramer
  • Loxone
  • Neets / biamp
  • PIXILAB Blocks
  • RTI
    These integrations / drivers can be free or paid. It’s individual..


For Open API communication, one M2M protocol can be chosen from among the following:

  • Modbus/TCP AN27, AN22, AN37
  • MQTT-flex AN40
  • Telnet AN10
  • URL API (http get) AN19, AN29
  • JSON over HTTP AN21, AN30, AN42
  • XML over HTTP AN20, AN31
  • SNMP v1 AN11, AN41
  • SNMP v3 AN59
  • HTTP(s) Push JSON
  • HTTP(s) Push XML

Regardless of which Open API protocol is being used, device can always be controlled from its web interface and from the NETIO Cloud service at the same time.


The NETIO Conditions (WatchDog) & Rules are preprogrammed in the device. It’s great tool for special usage and applications.

Customer activate these functions in script based configuration. Using Condition & Rules it is possible to define the reaction of defined output to the (non) response of PING WatchDog. NETIO Condition & Rules are supported by all NETIO devices manufactured after 2020 with the exception of PowerPDU 4C (supports LUA scripts).


For some applications, it is important to set the power socket state immediately after the device is powered on (or the power is restored after a failure). With some machines it is important to avoid momentary switch-on or switch-off. This parameter therefore defines the behavior of the 110/230V output power socket before the standard communication with a master system starts to work.

  • On
  • Off
  • LAST state restores the last state before the power was disconnectedPower-Up sequence (switching outputs on with a delay)
    When the power is restored after an outage, electrical appliances can be switched on in sequence with certain delays in order to avoid an overload and the tripping of circuit breakers. With the PowerCable 2PZ, use these parameters: “Power-Up state” = ON / LAST, and “Output PowerUp interval” = power-up delay before switching that particular output on.


An important feature of the NETIO PowerCable 2PZ is ZVS (Zero Voltage Switching).

ZVS controls the exact time when the mechanical relay contacts close and open. The relay contacts switch the outputs on or off when the voltage crosses the zero level.

  • In the long term, ZVS support reduces the product failure rate due to internal relay damage.
  • Since the relay switches when the sinusoidal voltage waveform crosses the zero level, negative effects of inrush current are significantly reduced.
  • The ZVS and PowerUp delay functions reduce the chance of circuit breakers tripping when power is restored after an outage.
  • ZVS extends the lifetime of connected equipment, especially in case of frequent on/off switching of devices that are not designed for that (such as switching power supplies).


  • Open M2M API
  • Wide range of operating temperatures, accurate measurements in the entire range
  • PowerUp state – defined output state after power-up (remembers the last state)
  • PowerUp delay (outputs switched on after a delay). In this way, the outputs can be switched on in a sequence after a power outage
  • Firmware can be upgraded over the Web, configuration can be imported and exported .
  • IOC – Independent Output Control
  • ZCS – Zero Current Switching (outputs 1 and 2)
  • Energy metering tracks the energy flow in both directions separately (with two separate kWh counters); an additional, user-resettable counter is also provided .
