Powering Up

When you connect the Wasabi Ball Transfer Appliance to a power supply (or the system recovers from a power outage) and the power switch is in the On position, the system returns to its last state:

  • If the system was powered on, the system automatically powers on again when the power supply is connected or power is restored.
  • If the system was powered off, the system remains off when the power supply is connected or power is restored. In this case, press the power button on the front panel of the system to power on the system. (Refer to the following example.)
