Do you operate a remote base? A repeater? A packet forwarding
system? Do you have a vacation home you
would like to monitor remotely? Almost any remote control application. Start and
monitor a generator remotely. 100's of uses.
There are many occasions when it is desirable to collect
data and alarms from remote sites or even have real-time control over security.
Particularly suitable for telcos and wireless operators, where for example remote
cell site monitoring can now be achieved in a cost effective manner, the Badger
OmniRemote is a highly flexible unit that allows all this and more in a simple
to install 1U format. There are three module types. The Bistate Analogue Module
(BAM) that has either 16 or 64 inputs, the Serial Alarm Module (SAM) with two or
10 inputs and the Remote Access Module (RAM).
Connect to the outside world via DSL, phone line or radio
modem. The OmniRemote accepts analog, TTL, voltage and dry contact inputs to report
status of alarm systems, weather monitors, radios, computers and networks; virtually
any analog digital or mechanical device. It can also be controlled to open or close
dry contacts, route data to other inputs and control external devices.
The BAM 64, as its name suggests, has 64 bistate alarm inputs
with 12 analogue alarm inputs and 4 control outputs. This module is typically used
to collect information from legacy units that only have dry contact alarms and
those that have low voltage recorder outputs.
The SAM module is IP addressable so that devices such as
door entry systems can be controlled remotely. This means that key holders do not
have to drive to remote sites when maintenance engineers need access. Security
is still maintained because each time the door is opened an event can be reported
back to the control center. Other uses for SAM inputs include monitoring the aircraft
warning lights on radio masts. This means that maintenance
staff are alerted when there is bulb failure. It can also be used to control stand-by
power generators that have a suitable serial I/O. Instead of going to site to perform
a routine test, the generator can be started remotely. Both the voltage and current
loading data can be returned to the control center through either the SAM or the
The RAM is an IP router/bridge that can have an optional
4 port hub. It supports ISDN dial back and Frame Relay encapsulation and an optional
internal dial-up modem is also available.
Capacity is 64 Bi-state inputs, 12 analog inputs and 4 control
outputs (all on 66 punch block attached to cabinet top) as well as a data in and
out via up to six RS422 ports and ten RS232 serial ports. 10 Base-T connection
All units are new / unused. We have removed them from self-contained
NEMA 3R cabinets which are available on our web site as an option. Operates on
