Ordinarily, if you want to get SNMP Traps from your Main Distribution Frame, you're looking at hours of work and a hefty price in technicians' time and overtime pay.
First, you've got to collect all the wires at your Main Distribution Frame and tie them down to a terminal block. Then you've got to cross-connect the wires from the terminal block to an SNMP RTU - and that means running the wires over an equipment ladder and sewing them down.
There's an easier way - the Remote Alarm Block 176N. It's a remote alarm block and SNMP RTU in one unit. The RAB installs right in your Main Distribution Frame. Tie all the wires to the RAB - and the only thing you've got going out is a nice, clean Ethernet cable ... straight to your LAN and
your SNMP manager.
