Wish You Could Directly Access Your Alarm Master On-Site? Now You Can with the New T/Mon KVK ...
FRESNO, Calif., March 24 -- Are you tired of walking back to your PC to view and manage your network alarms? Do you have to install another workstation to view alarms or perform administrative functions from your rack? You also have to worry about backup master access when your LAN connection fails...
Imagine a device that was able to deal with these critical alarm master issues head on. Being able to control settings and view alarm screens right from your alarm master LCD would allow you to respond to alarms quicker than ever.
DPS Telecom announced today the release of a new accessory in their T/Mon alarm master product line. The new rack-mount T/Mon Keyboard Video Kit (KVK) package enables you to access your T/Mon NOC alarm master right from your equipment rack, allowing you to conveniently manage your alarms on-site.
This new KVK package includes a compact keyboard designed to fit in a single 19-inch rack unit. The keyboard includes all of the keys you need for your monitoring applications. The new rack mounting has a slide rack for housing the keyboard, allowing you to pull it out only when needed. The slide rack also closes, covering your keyboard to protect it when it is not in use.
The T/Mon KVK LCD and keyboard turn your T/Mon alarm master into a console. This allows operators to conveniently view T/Access screens right at your master station LCD to adjust settings, such as setting the IP address without requiring another PC, and more. Without requiring a LAN connection, this solution makes it quick and easy for you to deal with critical monitoring issues without leaving your master site.
"With the rack-mount LCD and keyboard, the T/Mon NOC alarm master becomes a more integrated monitoring platform," said Eric Storm, DPS Telecom President. "We knew our clients were looking for walk up access to their NOCs, so we designed this new rack configuration to make it easy for them to perform administrative functions."
Did you know that the T/Mon KVK allows you view your alarm information directly from the T/Mon's video card, bypassing the transport lag entirely? With the Keyboard and Video Kit, you can deepen your diagnostic capabilities by viewing the NOC's power-up self-test.
The 17-inch LCD screen is swivel-mounted, allowing you to tilt-adjust your screen as required to best view your screen. In addition to the mounting swivel, the package also includes a 19-inch rack-mount aluminum panel to connect the LCD to your rack. This new rack mounting allows you to deploy your T/Mon alarm master, LCD, and keyboard in any configuration you choose.
The T/Mon KVK can be easily added to your existing T/Mon NOC alarm master. Of course, you can also order your new NOC with this option right from the start.
