RLE Technologies Falcon Facility Monitoring System P-Falcon FMS

RLE Technologies Falcon Facility Monitoring System


The Falcon Facilities Monitoring System (FMS) provides additional equipment protection by monitoring critical operating parameters in enterprises, remote network facilities, communication rooms, remote and unmanned facilities, and critical support systems. The FMS is a stand-alone system. It operates via embedded firmware that handles all data collection, alarm reporting, and multiple concurrent communication mediums. The FMS typically monitors analog, dry contact, Modbus, and SNMP integer outputs from a variety of devices. During operation, the FMS performs internal diagnostics and monitors its status. It uses LED indicators to report its condition. The FMS embedded firmware enables system configuration, I/O setup, status inquiries, alarm reports, data logs, and troubleshooting. The FMS is menu driven and operates with any Web browser, ASCII terminal, or terminal emulation application (HyperTerminal). A base FMS unit ships in a 1U rack-mount enclosure. Up to four expansion cards can be added to the base FMS to increase the functionality of the device. The 1U enclosure has room for one expansion card, in addition to the base FMS unit. A 2U FMS has room for three expansion cards, in addition to the base FMS functionality.
