Transmit ASCII Alarm Data Directly to Your Technicians in the Field
When problems happen at remote sites, speed is of the essence. Making repairs quickly and accurately minimizes downtime and increases average network reliability. Pager notifications speed repairs by getting alarm information directly to the technicians who can correct the problem.
ASCII devices work particularly well with pager notifications because ASCII text can be extracted from alarm messages and sent directly to alphanumeric pagers. In the application shown, an RTU processes ASCII alarms and forwards relevant information to the pagers of repair technicians.
ASCII alarms can contain detailed information about equipment problems. Getting that information directly to repair staff will help ensure that the right personnel and tools arrive at the remote site to fix the problem right the first time.
This same remote will also send alarms to your NOC and monitor discrete alarms and environmental conditions at your remote site.
