NetGuardian-Q8 G2

*Click an image to enlarge

The NetGuardian-Q8 is an SNMP-based alarm collection device, designed for clean integration of monitoring for the Quantar™.

Key Features

  • Turns your Modbus radios into powerful SNMP remotes
  • Radio is used to power the unit - No additional power source needed
  • Easy installation and integration with the Quantar™
  • Features ultra-fast web browser interface

The NetGuardian-Q8 supports up to 8 alarms standard (10 alarms with available order option) that are brought in through the 50-pin connector on the rear of the unit. The primary function of the NetGuardian-Q8 is to collect these alarms and convert them to SNMP. Because the unit has individual LEDs for each alarm point as well, you get the added bonus of local alarm monitoring on the rear of the radio.

The voltage that powers the unit also comes through the 50-pin connector and is protected by its own fuse. This way you will have alarm monitoring as long as the radio is powered.

Match this with an Ethernet connection for Web and Telnet access and a craft port for quick and easy diagnostics and monitoring, and you've got huge monitoring power in a very small package.

  • This unique design means the NetGuardian-Q8 takes up no additional rack space
  • The NetGuardian-Q8 mounts cleanly inside your radios
  • Easy installation and integration with the Quantar™
  • Turns your Modbus radios into powerful SNMP remotes
  • Radio is used to power the unit - No addition power source needed
  • Takes up zero rack space
  • TTY interface for provisioning of alarms
  • Integrated web browser for monitoring incoming alarms
