Product detailed description

PowerCable connects to the network over WiFi (internal antenna). The output power socket can be turned On/Off over a web interface. The web interface also shows the measured electrical values (V, A, kWh, W, Hz, TruePF) at the metered power socket.

  • WiFi connection, Auto-Reconnect
  • Modbus/TCP protocol, IP filter
  • Electrical measurements (V, A, W, kWh, TPF, Hz)
  • IOC – Output state independent on FW updates
  • ZCS – Zero-current switching

PowerCable Modbus 101x supports the M2M Modbus/TCP protocol for controlling its output and reading the measured values. Modbus/TCP is a popular M2M protocol used in the industry world-wide. To increase security, PowerCable Modbus contains a built-in IP filter. The IP filter limits the range of IP addresses that are allowed to access the device using the Modbus/TCP protocol. PowerCable Modbus 101x also supports Telnet protocol.

With the NETIO Cloud service, the outputs can be controlled from anywhere. The NETIO Cloud service, provided for a fee, uses SSL security and servers in Europe.

The WiFi power cable supports IOC (Independent Output Control); the state of the output is not affected by weak WiFi signal, restart of the WiFi module, or even firmware upgrade. The power-up state of the smart power socket is configurable (On/Off/Last).

An important feature for industrial control is ZCS (Zero Current Switching). This feature ensures that the relay is switched only when the immediate current value passes through zero. This feature ensures long-term durability even when switching capacitive loads (switching supplies common in ICT) or inductive loads (transformers, motors).

The operating temperature range of NETIO PowerCable Modbus 101x is -10 to 65°C (at 65°C, the maximum current is limited to 5A).

Electrical measurements (readings accessible over Modbus/TCP and the web)

  • Current [A]
  • Voltage [V]
  • Consumption [kWh]
  • Output power [W]
  • TPF (True Power Factor)
  • Frequency [Hz]
  • Phase Angle [-180...180°]

No special mobile application is needed for installing the WiFi controlled outlet and connecting it to a WiFi network. PowerCable Modbus works as a WiFi AP and a web based wizard will guide you through the configuration, including the selection of a WiFi network from a list. The setup process is simple and fast.



NETIO PowerCable Modbus 101x, a smart WiFi power socket for lightweight industrial applications. It is an ideal solution for remote control and metering of 230V power sockets outside electrical cabinets.

The metered power socket can be controlled over the network from a PLC (industrial controller), a multimedia PC, or an industrial touchscreen control panel.

NETIO PowerCable Modbus 101x is a WiFi controlled outlet suitable for IoT and Industry 4.0 applications.


101x – The “x” denotes different types of plugs and sockets

PowerCable Modbus 101x is supplied in several versions depending on the electrical socket type (as used in different countries). All 101x models come with two 0,85m cables with the corresponding power socket and power plug types.
