Web monitor for Cloud amplifiers

AUTHOR: Inavate

Cloud Electronics has launched the VTX-WM1 web monitor card – a web server Ethernet option card for its VTX power amplifiers.

The VTX card hosts its own website providing monitoring and surveillance information about the amplifier’s condition and status – which can be viewed from any remote location at any time using a computer (or PDA, smartphone etc.) via its web browser.

Monitoring options include load, input levels, signal level indications, temperature and level controls and all the amplifier’s user configurable settings.

Alarm warnings and status messages are either sent via email or SMS. This includes a black-box message should the amplifier fail and shut down. The battery backup is sufficient to send a final message.
