NetGuardian Hinged Back Panel

*Click an image to enlarge

The Hinged Pluggable Back Panel attaches behind your NetGuardian RTU for easy alarm termination. The back panel features pluggable barriers that allow convenient termination access to the discrete alarms, controls, and analog inputs.

Key Features

  • Easily connect alarms, controls, and analogs
  • Hinged for access to ports on the back of your NetGuardian
  • No power to the panel necessary

You have to wire (terminate) your monitored equipment into your RTU somehow, and there are many ways to do that. The needs of your network, as well as your personal preference, will help you choose which method is best for you.

One of the most popular methods is using the Hinged Back Panel. This is an efficient option that has its place in telco-grade networks because it's quite reliable and resistant to accidental disturbance, such as someone brushing by the rack. Also, pluggable barriers are fast and easy to move from port to port once you've wired them.

Hinged Back Panels are ideal for uses where rack space is at a premium. They are plugged in the back of NetGuardian RTUs to ease the alarm termination process. The back panel hinges open for easy access to the data (serial) port, LAN, and power connections of the NetGuardian. The panel mounts to the rear side of a relay rack.

Benefits of the Hinged Back Panel include:

  • It protects your NetGuardian from electrical surges
  • Easy installation
  • Designed to conserve rack space

The Hinged Back Panel can be modified to fit the following NetGuardian models:

  • NetGuardian 832A G5
  • NetGuardian 864A
  • NetGuardian 480
