8PortSerialSwitch 8 Port Serial Switch

The 8 Port Serial Switch allows you to connect up to eight data sources to one port on a collection device , such as the NetGuardian. Commands from an interrogating ASCII terminal control the switch to route data to the appropriate port. Each channel has a 16K buffer that allows data to be moved between ports at different data rates.

bsu3   Building Status Unit III

The Building Status Unit III (BSU III) is a local alarm notification device. This an excellent device to use when personnel at the site must be made aware of critical, major, and/or minor alarms. The BSU III provides audible and visual notifcation of alarms through its integrated 3 alarm notification LEDs and an audible speaker signal.

GeneralLCDDisplay   General LCD Display (GLD)

The GLD is a small wall-mounted remote terminal for the NetGuardian. The LCD display shows system status and alarm messages, and the built-in speaker gives an audible notice of alarms. Up to 12 GLDs can be daisy-chained off the NetGuardian. (NetGuardian with optional RS-485 port required.)

SiteMON-IP   SiteMon IP Surveillance Camera

With this camera and RTU in one, you don't need to wonder what's going on at your sites. Connecting directly to the NetGuardian's optional LAN switch, the new SiteMON IP enables you to make security decisions remotely, allowing you to dispatch on-call staff, security, or even police. Available with or without an outdoor enclosure.

Wire-Wrap Back Panel

The NetGuardian 864A supports wire-wrap terminations to the NetGuardian's alarm and controls via hinged back panel or 66-Block.

BuildingAccessSystem(BAS)   Building Access System (BAS)

The Building Access System is a comprehensive building management system that integrates into an existing alarm management platform. With the system in place, a log of all site access, including the time of day and location that access was granted, is maintained. The BAS is the perfect add-on for our KDA and NetGuardian products.

66block   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).

powersupply   External 110VAC Wall Transformer

The external 110VAC wall transformer converts commercial power to the DC power and termination required for your RTU. It is able to handle 110/220 VAC and depending on the build option, this wall transformer will need to be equipped with a WAGO, standard RIA, or locking RIA terminal end.

KDA:NetGuardian   KDA to NetGuardian 864 Termination Conversion Panel

The KDA to NetGuardian 864 alarm termination conversion panel allows for easy configuration and setup when upgrading to the NetGuardian 864A from a KDA alarm remote. Instead of rewiring your amphenol connectors, just use this conversion panel to save the hassle.

Wire Wrap Back Panel

The NetGuardian 864A supports wire-wrap terminations to the NetGuardian's alarm and controls via hinged back panel or 66-block.

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

NetGuardian 864
