Analog Temp Probe
External Temperature Probe with 7-foot lead

This temperature sensor plugs into your NetGuardian's external sensor jack.

SiteMon IP Surveillance Camera

With this camera and RTU in one, you don't need to wonder what's going on at your sites. Connecting directly to the NetGuardian's optional LAN switch, the new SiteMON IP enables you to make security decisions remotely, allowing you to dispatch on-call staff, security, or even police. Available with or without an outdoor enclosure.

Discrete/Analog Sensors
Discrete and Analog Sensors

Fuel tanks, battery power, lighting systems, and water levels are just some of things you need to monitor to keep your network up and running. Track changing network conditions with these discrete & analog sensors.


66 block

A 66 block is a simple way to use wire-wrap connections with DPS RTUs. When telcos really want connections to stay in place, they use wire wrap. You'll simply punch down your alarm, analog, and/or control relay wiring to the 66 block, then connect the 66 block to the RTU using a standard amphenol cable (also available from DPS).


Wire-Wrap Back Panel

The NetGuardian 216's Wire-Wrap back panel allows for wire-wrap connections for the discrete alarms,
analog alarms, and control relays. (D-PK-WWADP)


Pluggable Back Panel

The NetGuardian 216's pluggable back panel allows for screw-in barrier plug connections for your alarms and control relays.

NetGuardian 216 Test Box

The NetGuardian Test Box allows technicians to verify every discrete alarm input, control relay, and voltage-based analog alarm input on a NetGuardian 216, 216T, or 216F. The NetGuardian Test Box is a trusted tool of DPS test technicians.


19" Rack Mounting Ears

The additional 19" Rack Ear secures your NetGuardian 216 G3 to both sides of a rack for added stability. DPS Telecom recommends fastening your NetGuardian with the additional rack ear.
