DC Distribution Remote Monitoring

Remote monitoring

DC Distribution Remote Monitoring provides a big benefit by allowing remote troubleshooting of DC radios, repeaters, RF amplifiers, or other device. Users can remotely monitor load conditions at the panel over the internet using the built-in web server and the graphical user interface. The panel can send text or email alerts if a fault occurs.

Remote power control

Users and managers can remotely power each individual output on and off over the I.P. connection. This means that connected loads such as radios or repeaters can be shut down remotely, or power cycled on and off in order to reboot themselves. This saves time and money by avoiding unnecessary site visits, or solving a problem for sites that are hard to reach.

ICT Distribution Series 2

Standard, Intelligent and Broadband DC load distribution panels featuring I.P. enabled models for remote monitoring and remote power control.

ICT distribution Series 2

ICT Distribution Series 2 is a family of fused DC load distribution panels that allow multiple radios, RF amplifiers, repeaters, or other devices to be powered from a single high current power source.

Every model is 1RU high, with twelve outputs and a high current rating.  Fuses are mounted on the front for easy monitoring and replacement.
The Standard and Intelligent models are for 12 and 24VDC applications and use ATO and MAXI type fuses, and the Broadband model, specifically designed for -48VDC, uses GMT fuses.

Key Features

ICT Distribution Series 3

200 Amp Dual Bus Breaker and Fuse DC Load Distribution Panels.

ICT distribution series 3

The ICT Distribution Series 3 are DC load distribution panels that provide dual-bus architecture with a 200 amp peak load rating.  Each bus provides 6 outputs and supports 100 amps peak.

They are available in Standard models or Intelligent fully managed versions that include TCP/IP for DC distributions remote monitoring management and power-cycling using HTML or SNMP.

The Distribution Series 3 from ICT provides an extremely cost-effective approach to providing dual-bus capability with unmanaged or fully managed TCP/IP models, and a choice of fuse or breaker protection of the outputs.

ICT Distribution Series 3 is ideal if you:
