Here's a solution to your Badger compatibility problem - a modern remote monitoring master that is Badger compatible. With the TMon / IAM Remote Monitoring System, you can:
It's time to replace your current Badger or Larse master with something new, but you don't want to change your whole system - with good reason. You don't want to do a forklift swapout of all your Badger remotes.
You can't afford the equipment replacement and manpower costs of replacing all your Badger remotes at all your remote sites.
Badger compatibility means you don't have to replace your remotes all at once - you can replace just your master and get all the advantages of a modern, advanced system at a fraction of the cost.
When you replace your current Badger master with a TMon / IAM Remote Monitoring System, you'll immediately get the benefit of advanced monitoring features:
Once your TMon / IAM Remote Monitoring System is in place, you have multiple options for replacing your Badger remotes without the financial shock of a forklift swapout:
It's the sensible, cost-effective way to replace your legacy Badger system.
The software modules listed in the 'Equipment Used' section will allow NOC to poll multiple legs of Larse and NEC remotes in one common platform and provide the protocol mediation to SNMP. We also recommened a database conversion utility for both systems which will allow your existing database to be substantially transferred to the T/MON NOC, saving considerable time preventing errors.
The T/Mon NOC will perform many critical functions such as collecting, filtering, categorizing & presenting your alarms. T/Mon is ideal for maintaining history, alphanumeric paging and e-mail notification. One of the most powerful features of the T/Mon NOC is its ability to mediate alarms to other protocols. The SNMP responder module will provide alarm visibility at other locations that use an SNMP manager.
We have proven, in our test lab, that we can poll the Badger 475 units successfully from our T/Mon Master Station using a PSK Interface. Also included in this application is the Badger Polling Software that will enable this increased functionality.
In order to interface with the PSK Polling leg, we will need to add an external device. This interface will dock with one of the T/Mon NOCs available RS232 Ports.
RS232 to PSK Polling Interface,-48VDC, 19 and 23" Rack Mountable. Electrical interface adapter chassis that will Bi-directionally convert RS232 to PSK (Phase Shift Keying). 1 RU tall, rack mountable in 19 or 23 inch shelves. Connectorized. Front panel activity LED's. -48vdc power supply.
