Industry-leading IP-Based Remote Monitoring and Control with Sealevel RMS-1000

April 24, 2008

The RMS-1000 delivers an unparalleled combination of IP-based communication, extensive I/O connectivity, and fanless operation for a reliable and easy-to-configure solution. The system is ideal for broadcast monitoring, security applications, IT infrastructure management, and facility supervision applications.

The RMS-1000 with optional Audemat® ScriptEasy™ software provides an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that requires no software programming skills. Users simply drag and drop logic functions to define condition parameters. The software automatically generates monitoring and control scripts that deliver status reports and alerts. ScriptEasy includes an embedded web server that enables configuration and status monitoring from any Internet connection. Alarms can be sent via E-mail, SNMP, and Voice/DTMF interface.

“The ability to remotely monitor and control equipment, facilities, and processes from anywhere with an Internet connection is a game-changer for many businesses”, said Tom O’Hanlan, President and CEO of Sealevel Systems, Inc. “Customers are realizing significant increases in up-time performance and corresponding decreases in field service costs. Our goal is to lead the industry by providing a system that sets a new standard for performance, capability, and usability across a diverse range of markets.”

The RMS-1000, housed in a rugged, space-saving 1U, 19” rackmount enclosure, provides dual Ethernet connectivity, 64 optically isolated inputs, 64 digital outputs, and 24 differential analog inputs. Four RS-232/422/485 ports and one RS-232 port are available to interface to a wide range of serial devices. A complete voice modem interface with DTMF capabilities is also included. A choice of convenient I/O termination panels with terminal blocks make connection to real world signals easy. For extremely dense I/O monitoring requirements the I/O count can be doubled by adding an RMS-1000-EXP expansion module controlled from the host USB port.

“Monitoring and control units are often located in remote locations, so reliability is a necessity” said O’Hanlan. “To deliver that reliability the RMS-1000 provides solid-state operation using a fanless 1GHz Intel® Celeron® M processor and is rated for 0-50°C environments.”

Pricing for the RMS-1000 starts at $2,995 and a complete turnkey solution, including the ScriptEasy software application preinstalled, is available from $4,495. The convenient I/O termination panels are available starting at $199.
