NetGuardian RTUs that support SNMP

SNMP is a widely used protocol. Therefore, many NetGuardians support 1 or more versions of SNMP to improve your network visibility.

NetGuardian 832A.

A large-capacity RTU that 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 v2c or DCPX, e-mail, or pagers. Multiple customization and expansion options available.

NetGuardian DX Expansion Unit.

The NetGuardian DX G5 Expansion Units are low-cost, self-contained devices that provide compatible NetGuardian series remotes with additional ground-activated discrete alarms, analogs alarms, and control relays. With the NetGuardian DX expansions, your NetGuardian RTU can scale to the needs of your site, so you don't have to deploy new RTUs as your needs grow.

How This Application Works:

This application features the NetGuardian G4 to replace alarm collection functions on your older equipment and accept alarms from the MacKenzie MacFi MP units. The MacKenzie MacFi MP's contact closures will be monitored via the NetGuardian G4's 32 alarm points.

When there is a change of state with the contact closure, the NetGuardian G4 will then report those alarms via POTS line to your service provider and ultimately out via SMS text messages to their cell phones. The NetGuardian is also equipped with LAN capabilities, which means alarm messages can be sent via email to their cell phone (depending on service provider) as well as being able to view current alarm status via its built in web browser.

Power Over Ethernet

Do you use PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) for your remote site equipment? As you know, this technology greatly simplifies wiring, as PoE devices are completely powered by the same network cable used for LAN. Imagine how much you could reduce labor time and expense by deploying RTUs equipped with this power technology.


The DPS Engineering Department recently added PoE to the list of available NetGuardian build options. Power-over-Ethernet is available on a variety of NetGuardian RTU models, including many listed on the RTU Feature Matrix.

But what if you require the redundant dual-power inputs available on most existing non-PoE NetGuardians? You also have the option to use PoE as a backup power supply. If you lose power to your single or dual inputs, PoE would continue to power your RTU.

You can have non-power people doing installs. Don't have to be certified in DC power systems.

You don't have to do as much pre-engineering or power planning work and engineering drawings associated.

There is no other network on the planet that is exactly like yours. For that reason, you need to build a monitoring system that's the right fit for you.

"Buying more than you need" and "buying less than you need" are real risks. You also have to think about training, tech support, and upgrade availability.

Send me a quick online message about what you're trying to accomplish. I'll work with you to build a custom PDF application diagram that's a perfect fit for your network.

Make an Informed Decision

Your network isn't off-the-shelf.

Your monitoring system shouldn't be, either.
