Def can't recommend the AP9211s enough to people needing remote power 
control.  You should be able to put the more modern AP961X series of 
cards in it as well.  The AP9617 is the basic module, the 9619 has 
environmental monitoring, and the 9618 has both the environmental stuff 
plus an analog modem.

The management modules can be reloaded with various types of firmware to 
make them compatible with everything from the rack mount PDUs to 
Symmetras and the run of the mill desktop or rack mount UPSs.
