Monitoring For Any Size Site
Find the Perfect Fit RTU for Your Network
No matter what size site you need to monitor, you can find a remote that will provide complete and cost-effective coverage. Easy expansion options let you add more monitoring capacity as your network grows.
You can monitor your remote sites more effectively by choosing remotes of the right capacity for the size of the site. For smaller sites, choosing a light-capacity remote will save you the expense of buying more than you need. For larger sites, you need to be sure that you have enough capacity to cover all of your equipment.
To choose the correct alarm monitoring capacity for your needs, review each type of remote site in the network and determine your total number of:
- Discrete alarms (also called contact closures or digital inputs
- Analog values or sensors, such as temperature, humidity, current draw, etc.
- Devices you will need to operate remotely with control relays.
DPS Telecom can help you determine your total monitoring needs. Based on our experience creating thousands of monitoring applications for real-world remote sites, our application engineers will develop a comprehensive solution for your network using our detailed, step-by-step site survey.
