Legacy Alarm Monitoring Equipment Replacement

You want to replace your Badger master, but you can't afford a forklift swapout of your Badger remotes

It's time to replace your current Badger or Larse master with something new, but you don't want to change your whole system - with good reason. You don't want to do a forklift swapout of all your Badger remotes.

You can't afford the equipment replacement and manpower costs of replacing all your Badger remotes at all your remote sites.

Badger compatibility means you don't have to replace your remotes all at once - you can replace just your master and get all the advantages of a modern, advanced system at a fraction of the cost.

Use advanced remote monitoring features with your existing Badger remotes

When you replace your current Badger master with a TMon / IAM Remote Monitoring System, you'll immediately get the benefit of advanced monitoring features:

  • After-hours alarm notifications: T/Mon / IAM supports pager and e-mail alarm notifications, giving your on-call techs full information about remote site problems, even at 3 in the morning
  • Web interface: Everybody knows how to use a web browser. A web interface makes sure all your field techs can access your alarm system, from any computer from any location.
  • Nuisance alarm filtering: TMon / IAM filters out status alerts, oscillating conditions, and unimportant alarms.
  • Integrated multiprotocol support: TMon / IAM supports over 25 protocols, including SNMP, TL1, TBOS, TABS, plus numerous proprietary protocols from Badger, Larse, NEC, and others. You can get rid of your specialized consoles and monitor your whole network from one screen.

Gradually replace your Badger remotes without forklift swapouts

Once your TMon / IAM Remote Monitoring System is in place, you have multiple options for replacing your Badger remotes without the financial shock of a forklift swapout:

  • Run both modern advanced remotes and legacy Badger remotes side-by-side.
  • Begin your replacement on your schedule, not all at once.
  • Replace your Badger remotes with new remotes as fast or as slow as your time, budget, and manpower resources allow.

It's the sensible, cost-effective way to replace your legacy Badger system.

Mediate Badger, Larse, and NEC to SNMP

Equipment Used:

How This Application Works:

The software modules listed in the 'Equipment Used' section will allow NOC to poll multiple legs of Larse and NEC remotes in one common platform and provide the protocol mediation to SNMP. We also recommened a database conversion utility for both systems which will allow your existing database to be substantially transferred to the T/MON NOC, saving considerable time preventing errors.

The T/Mon NOC will perform many critical functions such as collecting, filtering, categorizing & presenting your alarms. T/Mon is ideal for maintaining history, alphanumeric paging and e-mail notification. One of the most powerful features of the T/Mon NOC is its ability to mediate alarms to other protocols. The SNMP responder module will provide alarm visibility at other locations that use an SNMP manager.

Poll the Badger 475 from T/Mon

Equipment Used:

How This Application Works:

We have proven, in our test lab, that we can poll the Badger 475 units successfully from our T/Mon Master Station using a PSK Interface. Also included in this application is the Badger Polling Software that will enable this increased functionality.

In order to interface with the PSK Polling leg, we will need to add an external device. This interface will dock with one of the T/Mon NOCs available RS232 Ports.

Additional Details about the RS232 to PSK Polling Interface:

RS232 to PSK Polling Interface,-48VDC, 19 and 23" Rack Mountable. Electrical interface adapter chassis that will Bi-directionally convert RS232 to PSK (Phase Shift Keying). 1 RU tall, rack mountable in 19 or 23 inch shelves. Connectorized. Front panel activity LED's. -48vdc power supply.
