Overview of The NetGuardian M16 G2 RTU

NetGuardian M16 G2
The NetGuardian M1 6 G2 is an effective way of monitoring medium sites with up to 16 discrete alarms and an integrated analog temperature sensor. You will receive alarms via SNMP.


You'll also have support for 16 D-Wire sensors - which give you excellent analog monitoring capacity for environmental conditions.

When you build a monitoring system with the NetGuardian M16 G2, your remotes will be based on the time-tested NetGuardian design used in other models. This is telco-grade equipment housed in a durable aluminum case.

When alarms occur at your site, SNMP traps will be sent to your SNMP manager or T/Mon master station. The NetGuardian M16 G2 can also send email notifications to on-call technicians (great for after hours monitoring), and it has indicator LEDs that display local summary status.

Here's what the new NetGuardian M16 G2 can do for you:

66 block

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).

Test Equipment

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 Voice 16 G2, 216, 216T, or 216F. The NetGuardian Test Box is a trusted tool of DPS test technicians.


Additional 19" Rack Ear

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.

Pluggable Back Panel

The hinged pluggable back panel allows for pluggable connections to your NetGuardian's alarms, analog inputs, and control relays.

Wire Wrap Back Panel

The wire wrap back panel allows for wire-wrap connections to your NetGuardian's alarms, analog inputs, and control relays.
