 This industrial switches do have a "relais"  output


btw .. in european jargon "relais" is quite valid... in english, german,
french or spanish.

    I solved this by connectiong the input of a solid state relais to the
    DTR line of a terminal server. If I connect to the serial port DTR
    becomes active, switching power on via the solid state relais. When I
    disconnect DTR gets droped and the power is shut off. You need a solid
    state relais because the DTR line doesn't deliver enough power for a
    mechanical relais.

  Interesting phonetics though. :)
