Solution: NetGuardian 832A, the flexible RTU that handles all your transport

NetGuardian 832A
The NetGuardian 832A monitors 32 discrete alarms and 8 analog alarms, pings 32 network elements, controls 8 relays, provides LAN reach through access to 8 serial ports, and reports via SNMP or DCPX, e-mail, or pagers.

With the NetGuardian 832A, multiple transports are no problem. This flexible RTU supports three kinds of transport: LAN, dial-up and optional serial connection for 202 modem, FSK modem, or RS-232. The NetGuardian can work with whatever transport is available at your remote sites.

Networks that are in transition aren't a problem for the NetGuardian either. The NetGuardian supports LAN, dial-up and serial connections simultaneously. So as your network upgrades from legacy transports to LAN, you can use the same NetGuardian units at all your sites.

What can the NetGuardian do for you?

There are many benefits to the NetGuardian's support for multiple transports:

  1. You can use one RTU at all your remote sites, no matter what transport is available.
  2. You don't have to install new transport to collect alarms.
  3. As your network changes, you don't have to buy new remotes for new transports.
  4. You only have to maintain one set of spare units and spare parts for your entire network, for great cost savings and convenience.
  5. All your alarms are in one common format. You don't have to use a confusion of multiple consoles and multiple screens to monitor all your remote sites.
  6. You only have to train your installation techs on one kind of remote.
  7. It's easy to set up a standard set of alarms for each of your sites, further simplifying turn up and training.

And that's not all. Because of its multiple transport capability, the NetGuardian also supports applications for bridging across multiple transports, and even strategies for protocol mediation and replacing legacy monitoring equipment.

And don't forget, the NetGuardian 832A is a highly competent alarm collector, with unique capabilities no other RTU can match.

This report details all the ways the NetGuardian brings back alarms, plus what these capabilities can mean for you in terms of making your job easier and more effective.
