High Capacity: 32 discrete alarms points (expandable to 176), 32 ping alarms, 8 analog alarms, 8 controls, and 8 serial ports.
Reports alarms via SNMPv1, SNMPv2c, SNMPv3, or DCPX.
Wireless Connection Option (either CDMA or GSM).
DNP3 Protocol reporting option.
Ping method via SNMPv1 GET - Get more important status info from your ping targets.
Reports alarms to multiple SNMP managers or TMon Remote Alarm Monitoring System so it's easier than ever to support a more secure redundant master architecture.
Dual Ethernet support for secure network access, both NICs have access to the NetGuardian but not to each other.
8 high-speed (110K) serial ports provide multiple user LAN-based reach through access to PBXs, switches, and any other device with a craft port or serial only interface. (Similar to terminal server functionality).
Integrated 4 port 10/100 switch allows functionality with the NetGuardian SiteCAM for visual site surveillance
Alarm point grouping provides severity levels, custom virtual alarms and more
RoHS 5 approved, for overseas clients requiring RoHS compliant units
Alternate dial-up reporting path in case of primary communication path failure
Configure and monitor via Web browser
E-mail and pager notifications
Free tech support and upgrades
Free Windows-based utility for off-site editing and remote provisioning via LAN
Multiple customization and expansion options:
Start with NetGuardian-C5 (16 discrete alarms, 16 ping alarms, 8 analog alarms, 2 controls, and 4 serial ports) and expand to the capacity you want
Integrate with the Building Access System
Add sensors for temperature, humidity, etc.
Integrate site video surveillance into the NetGuardian web interface to help confirm alarms and increase site security.
The NetGuardian hinged back panel accessories provide alternatives for wiring your alarm points. Wire wrap, screw-lug terminations, and punch block are some of the wiring options available.
Multi-layer, multi-user, multi-privilege security system.
For NetGuardian 832A G4 users looking at substantial new deployments, you might want to consider migrating to the new G5 platform. This enhanced RTU gives you the same alarm capacity as the G4, but with many new capabilities. including increased processor speed (for a faster web interface), advanced hardware (more memory for features), and enhanced security options (like SNMPv3, hardware acceleration, and RADIUS authentication).
The G4 firmware is now in maintenance-only mode, whereas the G5 is actively being developed. This opens the door for many new features down the road. Also, since the G5 is newer, it will also feature a longer product life.
The migration path to the G4 couldn't be easier. The pins for the alarm, relay, and power connections are the same - so projects designed for the G4 will work fine with the G5. See chart below for a quick comparison:
Ultimately, the NetGuardian G5 helps to give your network the latest and greatest monitoring technology.
