Using the Power Strip Driver
A guide to the POWER-STRIP Driver
This article describes the capabilities and configuration associated with the Power Strip driver in Tulip.
The Power Strip driver allows the Synaccess NP-05B networked power strip to be used within Tulip Apps through the Tulip I/O Gateway and Edge IO.
Note that this driver is not commonly used and is hidden by default. Should you like access to this driver, please contact email@example.com indicating that you "would like the power strip driver to be enabled" on your account.
