Monitoring your equipment remotely is a huge time and money saver. It gives you visibility of equipment status, can help you more efficiently plan maintenance and reduces windshield time for your techs.
Unfortunately, when things do go down, remote monitoring isn't enough. When a site goes dark, sometimes all you need to bring it back online is to power cycle a piece of equipment. But, sending a tech out to a site just to power cycle a device isn't very practical and gets more expensive the further out the site is.
Some RTUs have remote power-cycling capability, but they usually can't power cycle anything very large. If you have larger equipment that takes a high amperage, especially to turn on, you need a device built for such a task.
The Controller Extension Box is a compact relay box used to control power outputs. The unit is designed as a hardware accessory to complement the NetGuardian and enables relays from a single piece of equipment to control the power output into multiple devices. The Controller Extension Box supports high power-switching applications and enables the user to switch devices on and off remotely, reducing windshield and tech time. The Controller Extension Box is designed for straightforward installation, making it cost-effective and convenient to control the power of your entire network.
The Controller Extension Box is the perfect solution for switching devices beyond the load capacity of the NetGuardian. This device is customized to implement enhanced functionality for your network site by providing a number of integrated specifications:
