Easy Unit Configuration.

Built for small-site locations, the DPM is hassle free by being small in size while providing features that are usually found in larger remote telemetry units.

Configuring the DPM for features like email notification and custom alarm point description is easy with the new built-in web browser interface. The web interface is fast, convenient, and provides monitoring capabilities to make the DPM, a reliable, self-contained alarm monitoring system. From the web interface, you will be able to monitor alarm statuses and operate control relays right from the web. You will also be able to access other features from web interface. These features includes, but are not limited to, sending SNMP traps as well as text message notifications to cellular phones, pagers, and PDAs.

The DPM has an optional build configuration that will include either an internal temperature sensor or an external temperature sensor to go along with the DPM. Both of the internal and external temperature sensors can also be included with the DPM. The internal temperature sensor will be installed inside the DPM unit with a half-moon cutout to let it the sensor poke out a tiny bit from the unit. This internal temperature is meant to monitor only the internal temperature of the DPM unit. It is not mean to measure the environmental temperature around the unit itself. For external temperature monitoring, the external temperature sensor features a stereo jack that can be plugged into the DPM unit's back stereo input. No special settings is needed to get the external temperature sensor working. It will just work when it is plugged in. Easy and simple. The external temperature sensor can then be placed in an optimal location in order to measure the environmental temperature. The length of the external temperature sensor's cable can be changed depending on your needs. Whether you need 3 feet, 5 feet, or 50 feet, DPS Telecom can accommodate to get you the cable length that you want.

Intuitive Web Interface.

The DPM now comes standard with a built-in web interface. The intuitive web interface will increase productivity and make alarm monitoring with the DPM much more user-friendly. Configuring the DPM will be a breeze with the web interface. You will no longer have to worry about how you are going to configure the DPM. All you need is a modern web browser and a connection to the DPM to be able to access the built-in web interface.

The web interface for the DPM provides a number of useful features. You will be able to monitor and edit various alarms and settings. The web interface is split into two different sections. The monitor section is designed just for monitoring and nothing else. The monitor section will allow you to view information about Base Alarms, System Alarms, Controls, Analogs, and Event Log. No edits to the alarms or settings can be made from there. The edit section is much more interesting when compared to the monitor section. From the edit section, you will be able to adjust alarms and make changes to the DPM. You will be able to edit System, Ethernet, Serial Port, Notifications, Base Alarms, System Alarms, Controls, Analogs, Date and Time, Timers, and Reboot. From the various edit sections, you can set up email notifications or reboot the DPM.
