Abstract

A technique is described whereby a single contact closure provided from a remote signal is used to power-up a computer. Certain system applications require computers to be remotely powered-on or -off when operators are not present. A single contact S1, supplied by modem manufacturers as an automatic answering feature, enables relay K1 to be energized. The relay contacts then complete the circuit through dual contacts S2 and S3 to enable power to be supplied to the computer.
