How This Application Works:

The solution will center on notifying security personnel when a critical key leaves the building. This proposal features the NetGuardian G4 with GLD Display. When a High Security key passes through your door monitors, an SNMP alarm will be sent to your SNMP Master.

The SNMP Manager will then issue a control command to one of the NetGuardian's eight relays (depending on the type of key).

The NetGuardian will then activate an alarm on the GLD display in your Security Station with a text description reconfigured by you.

The General LCD Display (GLD) will be driven via the RS485 connectors to your NetGuardian. The General LCD Display (GLD) allows you to monitor an existing network from different locations by providing remote visibility of the system system's status. This convenient method of monitoring gives the user the ability to monitor the network without being physically present at the system site. With detailed alarm indication messages, the GLD gives peace of mind to network managers who aren't able to constantly observe the system system's status from the network network's location.

The GLD can easily "daisy-chain" from unit to unit. This means that up to 3 GLDs can be connected to a single host, with a maximum range of 1,500 feet between the host and the last GLD unit (the 1,500 foot maximum applies to a single GLD as well). The GLD is also easy to install, with connectors for all ports and mounting screws for easy attachment to any flat vertical surface.

Along with the convenience of remote visual monitoring, the unit is equipped with a speaker for one audible notification. The unit will sound when certain conditions occur, keeping the network manager informed of the system system's status even when the unit is not being watched. Additionally, the Link LED on the face of the GLD indicates communication with the host. A red flash indicates receive activity while a green flash shows transmit activity.
