  • Water sensors, window sensors,
    door sensors
  • SNMP Manager

How This Application Works:

The new NetDog 82IP (G2) has a capacity of 8 discrete inputs and 2 control relays. The NetDog 82IP's 8 discrete alarm inputs can accept any contact closure type of event, such as door switches, fuse alarms, major and minor equipment alarms, high temperature alarms and tower light monitors. The 2 control relay outputs can be used for a number of functions including operating standby equipment, door locks or emergency lighting. It also features 2 analog inputs for monitoring temperature, voltage, etc. The NetDog 82IP's built in 33.6 modem will not only dial to a pager directly to report a fault or alarm, but once alerted, the staff can dial into the NetDog 82IP using the telnet session and control up to 2 different pieces of equipment i.e. back up generator, turning lights on etc.

The NetDog 82IP is easy to install, with connectors for all ports and captive screw-lug terminals for alarm and control wiring. The unit mounts on any vertical flat surface, or it can be desktop mounted. If needed, we also carry mounting panels for equipment rack mounting. The built in 33.6 modem is a great way to get dial up access to this equipment should your primary transport fail. The NetDog 82IP is programmed using any generic TTY terminal. The easy-to-use menus enable you to quickly set up your NetDog with your pager number, point descriptions and additional options. Programming can also be done using your LAN or via dial-up modem. The entire configuration is saved on the NetDog where it remains secure through power outages in non-volatile RAM.

The NetDog 82IP can also ping up to 32 network elements which will notify you if network elements that are key to your operations are not reachable. If an element fails to respond to successive pings, or if something is amiss with the environmental controls, the NetDog 82IP notifies personnel using a variety of methods with a complete status message, including sending an SNMP trap over IP to your SNMP Manager and/or a text message to your pager.
