IP WatchDog HWg -WR02a: Ping Restarter

IP WatchDog WR02a monitors whether a controlled device, or an Internet connection, is "alive". If the correct reply is not received in time, the controlled device is restarted using a relay, or a back-up connection is activated.

HW group extends the portfolio of IP WatchDog products and introduces an industrial version of IP WatchDog HWg -WR02a - "ping restarter". This term describes a product designed for monitoring the functionality of another device over IP (PING/WEB) or serial line (RS -232).

IP WatchDog can monitor two devices (two independent channels, two 110/230VAC relays). Industrial applications can benefit from DIN rail mount.
Failures are detected with five distinct methods, separately for each channel (Ping Tx/Rx, Web page request/push, RS -232 data).
• Operation monitoring / IP restart
Servers / routers; IP video cameras; WiFi links / access points; industrial systems
• Connectivity monitoring
Activation of a back -up link; detection of connectivity outage (relay >> horn); monitoring of ADSL and cable modems; security and access control systems
