When it comes to remote cabinet management, our customers have voiced several primary concerns: battery
dissipation during power outages, battery tray temperatures, and the inability to retire older outdated equipment
currently used for alarming.

To address these and many other concerns, Vaonet introduces the Proteus™. The Proteus™ provides five dry contact
closure inputs, one internal temperature sensor, one external temperature sensor, and dual power input sensors.

The dry contact closure inputs detect the presence or absence of discrete alarms, enabling you to connect to any
type of closure in the cabinet. The consensus from our research is the most common alarms are rectifier failure,
door alarm, AC fail, generator run, and low fuel. All of which the Proteus™ can manage out-of-the-box.

The internal temperature sensor provides high and low thresholds that allow you to monitor the overall temperature
range in cabinets. Similarly, the external temperature sensor can monitor both high and low temperature thresholds
in the battery tray. The external temperature sensor is available in various lengths to allow for optimum placement
in the tray.

The Proteus™ accepts dual voltage inputs (A/B feeds) and monitors both for high and low voltage threshold violations.


Real-time Voltage and Temperature Monitoring
Internal and external temperature sensors and A and B voltage sensors provide threshold-based alarming. Current readings are viewable on the web interface and from the CLI.
Battery Dissipation Analysis
During AC power failures, voltage A input readings are stored in flash memory. Once power is restored, detailed battery dissipation graphs are created and accessible from the web interface. The graphs can be used to determine battery life during major power outages.
Alarm Notification
Notifications are delivered via SNMP, email, and/or ASCII messages over TCP.
Ping Up To 10 Devices
Ideal for testing local IP-based equipment. As pings are executed within the local site network, notification occurs when any equipment fails to respond.
Integrated Backup
Each time the configuration is modified, a backup of the active configuration is stored on our secure FTP servers.
