An RTU web browser is a handy tool to improve your visibility of your remote sites. A Web browser interface lets you view and acknowledge alarms from any computer on your network. You're not tied to proprietary monitoring consoles to control your system, supervisors have instant access to monitoring information from their desktops, and it's easy to rotate monitoring staff at different locations. Unfortunately most are limited in their abilities and are not made with the end-user in mind.
The NetGuardian 216 G3 includes an overhauled web interface that boasts several time-saving new tools.
Most noticeable is the impressive speed boost. Menus load very quickly, and alarm statuses update automatically without requiring a page refresh. If a tech forgets to refresh a page, they will still get any incoming alarms. Gone are the days of not seeing a critical alarm because no one refreshed the web browser.
New setup wizards guide you step-by-step through the RTU setup process, so you'll never have to guess your way through. One of these handy wizards (shown below) makes it easy to configure email, pager, and SNMP notification schedules. Set up is so easy, that just about any tech, regardless of experience can configure a unit, limiting the amount of critical errors made during set up.
Notification schedules can be created in the web interface so your NetGuardian will email or page the right technicians at the right times. You'll use this function, which is handled through a convenient setup wizard, to make sure the right on-call technicians get notified throughout the week.
Privilege settings allow you to give varying degrees of access to different employees and techs. You can change access for each individual user id, so that your vital information is protected.
DPS Telecom alarm remotes include free lifetime firmware updates, and now it's easier than ever to install those update. You'll be able to upgrade firmware right from the web interface. Simply:
Is the NetGuardian 216 G3 not the right fit for your network? DPS Telecom features other units that also have this easy to use, simple web browser, such as the NetGuardian 832A G5.
