VizioGuard Tiny

Description

The VizioGuard Tiny offers numerous application possibilities for control, management and monitoring of any environmental condition. The configuration of up to 4 peripheral devices or up to 32 sensors is flexible and comfortable possible via the integrated webserver.

The connection terminal with dry contacts allows connecting, cascading and monitoring of up to 128 peripherals. The VizioGuard can be used in large IT infrastructures without restrictions due to it’s high modularity and with the compact dimensions and the attractive pricing it offers a real alternative compared to integrated systems (like a DMZ or server rooms) from respective providers.

Power Distribution

As a pure environment monitoring system, the VizioGuard offers no direct power distribution. Using the xBus-port the connection to an ePowerSwitch is ensured and the appropriate sensors (voltage tester, power tester) guarantee a direct control of connected device.

In order to ensure a high level of reliability the VizioGuard has a redundant power supply. Certain peripherals may also be protected in this way.

Monitoring

Device Monitoring
The monitoring of connected devices is done with a ping or scan command. In case of a crash a message as an SNMP trap, by eMail or Syslog will be sent. The monitored devices (up to 128) can be restarted based on defined rules.

Flexible and economical solutions for power management of servers or other devices are possible with the VizioGuard. The areas of application are not limited only to the IT environment .

Environmental Monitoring
With the xBus interface on the rear side of the device up to 36 sensors or detectors can be connected by standard CAT cable. The transmission of signals is fully digital and the maximum range is up to 200m. The use of an existing cable infrastructure is easily assured. The inputs can be used in definable rules to trigger automatically any appropriate emergency actions.

Sensors and detectors can be flexibly combined and placed at any desired location in the surveillance area. For example, the optimization of a larger demilitarized zone (eg. hotspots in the air-conditioned area) is possible with only a little effort.

The image on the right shows a graphical evaluation of a temperature and humidity sensor as example.

Connection terminal
4 digital inputs are available through the dry contacts of the connection terminal. As example, smoke, water or motion detectors are connectable, that can be monitored and evaluated in full.

Management

The management and control of the device using the integrated web server through the web browser is quite simple. Moreover, it is possible to send switching commands via a connected KVM switch or a terminal console.

Authentication
All current ePowerSwitch devices use a nonce (cryptographic nonce) and a hash function for authentication so the access can not be reconstructed or manipulated. To support fully encrypted transmission of data corresponding devices are available (eg. ePowerSwitch 8XM or VizioGuard).

User accounts
The administrator can create up to 40 user accounts with different rights via the web interface. Access to the webserver is protected by 32-character user names and passwords. In addition, up to 40 users may simultaneously access the ePowerSwitch and all connected xBus peripherals.

Grouping of sensors
The grouping of sensors and modules allows to define various monitoring areas. Sensors, detectors and modules within a certain area are grouped together this way. Structural separations or anything else related to the infrastructure can be decidedly mapped and monitored this way.

Programmable rules
Up to 32 rules can be configured to monitor analog values and digital inputs. Pre-programmed actions will be triggered on alarm state which will switch eg. relay or sockets. Optional e-mails, SNMP traps or syslog messages can be sent.

Timer and scheduler
The device offers the possibility to automatically operate the power outlets by a timer and/or a scheduler function. Individual power poweroutlets but also groups will be turned on/off at defined times. It is also possible to automatically send e-mail, SNMP traps and syslog messages with the scheduler. By using a Internet connection the option to trigger an action on remote ePowerSwitch devices is given.

Designations
Up to 32 characters long names can be set to all devices and sensors connected. This unique identification simplifies the programming of rules, groups and the associated actions.

Online help
An intuitive interface and context-sensitive online help allow administrators to quickly enable various and powerful features of the system. Detailed instructions and explanations are listed in the operating instructions.
