Hardware and Software: Decoupled
Most competitive battery monitoring systems require proprietary and complex software systems that lock you into the hardware manufacturer’s software roadmap. More importantly, interfacing these systems to other operations center software systems has traditionally been difficult, complex, and unreliable.
The PowerAgent BMS is the only battery monitoring system that employs open TCP/IP & SNMP standards at the site controller level. The advantage is “freedom of choice” to decouple the hardware selection from the software selection.
PowerAgent transponders, with their standards-based interface, give you 4 choices of what to do about your software selection:
Two built-in web servers – No software needed!
Every PowerAgent transponder has a built-in web server that allows complete monitoring, control, and configuration using any common web browser.
Our new battery monitoring SC4 site controller actually has 2 web server systems built in.
The “Classic” web system offers unprecedented capabilities to configure and monitor virtually every aspect of the battery monitoring system, including provisioning of alarm thresholds and remotely monitoring and controlling site equipment such as HVAC via optional RIM &ROM (Remote Input/Output Modules).
Free Lookout Software
Phoenix Broadband has developed a software utility that manages every product we make in one unified graphical user interface. While not an enterprise-class software product, Lookout might be all the monitoring software necessary for operators of smaller networks. Best of all, it’s free!
Altilium Enterprise Software
Altilium is an enterprise-class, feature-rich outside-plant monitoring software solution. It can be implemented as a stand-alone application or integrated with existing network management systems.
Any SNMP Compliant Software
PowerAgent’s SNMP/HMS interface makes it possible to use virtually any SNMP manager, even the expensive NOC systems your enterprise might already own.
