Many Allegro Network Multimeters come with a on-board IPMI interface for basic hardware management.

This interface can be used to start, reboot, or shutdown the device without accessing the web interface. You can also access a virtual monitor to view the output on the console and use a virtual keyboard to interact with the device. This can be helpful for Performing a factory reset or configuration reset.

The following table shows if the device supports IPMI:

Device type IMPI support
Allegro 200 no
Allegro 500 no
Allegro 1000 yes
Allegro 1200 yes
Allegro 1300 yes
Allegro 3000 yes
Allegro 3200 yes
Allegro 3500 yes
Allegro 5500 yes

Access to IMPI

The IPMI interface can be accessed via a LAN via the very top-left Ethernet port, usually above the USB ports. By default, the port will obtain an IP address via DHCP but it can be reconfigured within the IPMI web interface.

If you point a browser to that IP address, a SuperMicro login will be presented where you can log into the interface. The default credentials are ADMIN/ADMIN but some newer devices come with a random password printed at the serial number sticker.

We recommend to change the default password into a secure one.
