Monitoring and control module revealed for single site monitoring
ViaLite’s new HRC-5 rack chassis based monitoring and control (M&C) module is designed to fully monitor and control ViaLiteHD RF over fibre systems in a single chassis.
The module provides similar features to the company’s premium HRC-3, but without the optical fibre connections, making it a cost-effective option for monitoring local systems.
Compatible with ViaLiteHD 1U and 3U rack chassis units and cards, it provides alarm monitoring and event logging. Connectivity includes a 10/100/1000Mb/s RJ45 connection and a micro-USB control port.
The M&C module uses the company’s Horizons software with integrated web GUI and SNMP protocol, which provides standalone control without requiring Java, Windows drivers or a separate web browser. A maintenance mode enables modifications to be carried out offline.
The auto card configuration function means that new RF over fibre link cards can be automatically re-programmed with the parameters of the previous card.
The HRC-5 is available as an embedded option in a range of ViaLite’s outdoor enclosures, including the Satcom6.
