INEX’s Grace­ful Shut­down Board offers func­tion­al­i­ty nec­es­sary in all kiosks pow­ered through Unin­ter­rupt­able Pow­er Sup­ply (UPS).The pro­ce­dure of turn­ing off the UPS by means of vir­tu­al­ly pulling the plug from the PC is very harm­ful to the hard­ware com­po­nents (hard dri­ves) as well as run­ning soft­ware mod­ules and oper­at­ing sys­tem. Nev­er­the­less, in many kiosk designs it is not fea­si­ble to shut down Win­dows O/S on all com­put­ers inside the kiosk before turn­ing off the UPS.

I‑EGSB allows to trig­ger the shut­down pro­ce­dure on all con­nect­ed com­put­ers man­u­al­ly (by press­ing a but­ton on the board) or by issu­ing a soft­ware com­mand on one of the PCs and indi­cates when it is safe to turn off the UPS.

I‑EGSB is also pre­pared for the event of pow­er fail. When the inde­pen­dent mon­i­tor­ing cir­cuit on the board detects pow­er fail, it starts the count­down pro­ce­dure to issu­ing the shut­down com­mand in accor­dance with the time delay pri­or set by the user.
