ViaLite’s new monitoring & control module is the simple choice for single site monitoring

ViaLite’s new HRC-5 rack chassis based Monitoring and Control (M&C) module is designed to fully monitor and control ViaLiteHD RF over Fiber systems in a single chassis.

The module provides similar features to the company’s top-of-the-range HRC-3, but without the optical fiber connections, making it an ideal cost effective option for monitoring local systems. Compatible with ViaLiteHD 1U and 3U rack chassis units and cards, it provides alarm monitoring and event logging. Connectivity includes a 10/100/1000 MB/s RJ45 connection and a micro-USB control port.

“We developed the HRC-5 to maintain all the local functionality of our existing Monitoring and Control modules, but with an entry level price. This will be great news for customers who only need single chassis access to their equipment,” said ViaLite Product Manager, Edward Levack.

The M&C module uses the company’s Horizons software with integrated web GUI and SNMP protocol, which provides standalone control without requiring Java, Windows drivers or a separate web browser. A maintenance mode enables modifications to be carried out offline.

The auto card configuration function means that new RF over fiber link cards can be automatically reprogramed with the parameters of the previous card. The HRC-5 is available as an embedded option in a range of ViaLite’s outdoor enclosures, including the best-selling Satcom6.
