Just like the classes held at DPS headquarters in Fresno, CA., our students receive 4 days of training on RTUs (TempDefenders), T/Mon, and SNMP. The class allows you to set up and configure your own RTU in a controlled environment. Students learn how to configure their devices on the T/Mon Master Station, including SNMP theory and messaging.
"I liked really finding out other tricks and things that my DPS gear can do."
"It was great to learn the potential of DPS products."
During class, we asked each students for their biggest "Aha!" moments - something new that they didn't know before.
Derived Controls are simple logical formulas that you write into your RTU or master station. You can turn on/off a generator when commercial power fails, remotely lock a door after business hours, or turn on an HVAC system when the site temperature hits a certain threshold. These are possibilities when you use a monitoring device's built-in intelligence between discretes & control relays.
"Learning SNMP was useful, especially now that we need no more MIB compilation."
Day 4 of Factory Training covers SNMP. While most DPS devices support SNMP, it is an open standard used by thousands of devices. For many students, the class gave them solid fundamental skills on a topic they had heard a lot about but had never used before.
Many were surprised to find out how useful SNMP can be. They also learned how T/Mon Device Modules eliminate the hassle of struggling with difficult MIB compilation.
"I like that you can monitor voltage on same source feeding the unit."
Many DPS RTUs have analog channels internally tied to their dual power inputs. This makes it easy for you to monitor the power input voltage on the same source that's feeding the unit. There's no additional wiring required, and dual A/B power inputs mean that you can monitor two different voltages at the same (ex. rectifier and battery plant).
On Day 1 of class, students learn to use DPS RTUs. When you buy a DPS RTU, you are entitled to free, lifetime firmware upgrades. Updates are easy to install using the web browser interface.
DPS manufactures all of our RTUs and master stations at our headquarters in Fresno, CA, USA. This is an unusual practice, so it tends to surprise our students and visitors. We've always manufactured equipment in-house to maintain top quality and our ability to adjust hardware & software to meet your needs.
