Manages power from the device's perspective. The power controller must have been previously configured. Multiple outlets are supported to facilitate devices with multiple power supplies.

Following power cycle, the device is checked against a number of measures to assure power cycle was a success. Following power off, console status is checked to make sure device has completely shut down, identified by console electrical signals. Following power cycle or power on, POST (Power On Self Test) takes up to five minutes to time-out if an error has occurred.

Rules can be defined to automate this operation using the powerCycle, powerOff, and powerOn actions.
