Your remote monitoring system must have adequate battery backup. After all, your remote monitoring should always be the last thing at any remote site to fail. You might be thinking, "But I have battery plant at my remote sites." Whether that's true or not, you really need to have a dedicated UPS battery just for your alarm remote to make sure that it can continue running no matter what happens to your site power.Of course, you may already know that one DPS RTU, the NetDog 82 BW, already has a built-in UPS battery. The trouble used to be that the NetDog didn't always have the right capacities and feature set for every network. What was needed was a simple, 1 RU unit that contains batteries and could power any DPS RTU that you plugged into it.
Introducing the UPS Expansion...
That's exactly what's been created. The UPS Expansion is an RTU accessory that you can use with any DPS RTU you like. With this device, your monitoring system will no longer rely on commercial power or battery plants - this means superior visibility, no matter the power situation at your sites. Whether you need the full-featured NetGuardian 832A or something smaller like the NetGuardian 216 G3, your options are wide open.
Compatible RTUs include...
No matter which RTU you decide to use, you'll get plenty of run-time from the UPS batteries. Testing with a NetGuardian 216 G3 and a wireless modem yielded over 3 days of battery life. Now, regardless of the RTU you need, you know that it will remain powered when you need it most. Combining the UPS expansion with a wireless modem provides an alternate reporting path to go with an independent power supply - giving you the most reliable monitoring system possible.
