Translation Language 1 (TL1) Contact Closure Monitoring: Fully Integrated into Your Remote Alarm Monitoring and Control System

If you're struggling to stay within your budgetary guidelines while effectively monitoring your sites in an efficient way, you're not alone. As networks grow and protocols change, many network professionals find themselves monitoring Remote Telemetry Units (RTUs) in multiple protocols, sometimes running several masters concurrently just to keep monitoring alive. A TL1 contact closure monitoring solution, however, will allow you to monitor older TL1 remotes on the same screen as your new equipment.

By consolidating TL1 remote alarm monitoring and control devices to a more efficient system, you'll increase network reliability while simultaneously cutting operating costs and dreaded 'windshield time'. Windshield time- time lost from operators commuting to remote sites- is an oft-forgotten factor with older TL1 sites that typically aren't supported by newer systems. Thankfully, advancements in TL1 alarm and contact closure monitoring are readily available and easily integrate with existing systems.

Two Fully Integrated Solutions

Remote site monitoring with the T/MON LNX or the T/MON SLIM are low-price and viable solution options.

The T/Mon LNX is a multiprotocol, multifunction single-platform solution for all remote alarm monitoring applications. It Collects remote alarm monitoring data from lots of different equipment throughout many manufacturers and protocols.

Similarly, the T/Mon SLIM Remote Alarm Monitoring System puts control over your alarms directly into your hands. T/Mon SLIM is a newer model of the T/Mon LMX Remote Alarm Monitoring System, scaled to the needs of small, local and regional networks.

Translation Language 1 (TL1) Contact Closure Monitoring is another name for "TL1 Alarm Monitoring".
