NetGuardian 216 G3: Smaller RTU for Smaller Sites

stars Average NetGuardian 216 G3 telecom reviews: 4.6 out of 5 stars based on 77 ratings from the install base.
The NetGuardian 216 G3 Alarm System: A smaller RTU that provides exactly the right capacity to manage your small and medium sites and reports alarms using SNMP or DCP over your existing IP network.

The NetGuardian 216 G3 is an evolution of the G2 model. They both have a compact form factor, 16 discrete alarm inputs, 2 control relays, and industrial-grade durability. Pinouts are the same on the G3, but you also get several new capabilities and more options on the newer model.

The 216 G3 can quadruple the analog inputs of its predecessor. So now that you can choose up to 8 analogs, you can monitor temperature, humidity, battery voltages, fuel levels, and other critical values from a single compact RTU.
