NetGuardian 832A: Applications

View How To Report Alarms as SNMP Traps

Report Alarms as SNMP Traps: The NetGuardian 832A mediates 32 discrete alarms, 32 ping alarms, and 8 analog alarms to SNMP traps, and supports multiple SNMP managers at multiple IP addresses.

View How To Control Remote Site Equipment

Control Remote Site Equipment From Your NOC, Web Browser, or Automatically: The NetGuardian's 8 control relays can be operated from T/MonXM, your SNMP manager, or any Web Browser. The NetGuardian can also be configured to automatically operate control relays in response to control inputs.

View LAN-Based Terminal Server

LAN-Based Terminal Server: The NetGuardian 832A's built-in terminal server functions allow you to access up to 8 serial devices via LAN. You can access, configure, and reboot remote site equipment without dedicated circuits and their recurring monthly costs.

View Local Visibility Options

Local Visibility Options: You can monitor the NetGuardian from any Web browser - a great way to check on alarms if your master is down. The NetGuardian can also send direct e-mail and alphanumeric pager alarm notifications.

View Dial-Up Backup Path

Dial-Up Backup Path: Thanks to its internal 33.6K modem, you can still connect to the NetGuardian even if the LAN is not available. The NetGuardian's dial-up connection can be used as a secondary backup path, or as a primary path for sites without LAN access. And it's the ideal remote from sites that are transitioning to LAN.

View Selective Echo Mode now on the NetGuardian G5

Selective Echo Mode: Now featuring SNMP "Set" commands, the NetGuardian G5 can selectively "echo" incoming alarms to another SNMP device, causing it to latch a relay. In this application, the NetGuardian G5 will selectively send the alarm to another SNMP remote while also reporting the alarm to your SNMP master at the same time.
