RLE's Falcon F1000-M w/ modem, is a monitoring and notification system for small and medium size system needs. This stand alone, integration-friendly systems provide equipment protection by monitoring critical operating and environmental parameters in communication rooms, unmanned facilities, critical support systems, and enterprises worldwide.

The Falcon F1000-M is ideal for monitoring analog (4-20mA), digital dry contact, or thermistor signals from devices such as temperature and humidity sensors, gas and smoke detectors, fire suppression systems, surveillance products, leak detection systems, power monitoring systems, uninterruptible power supplies, PDUs, generators, DC power plants, commercial power, HVAC units, ATSs and TVSSs.

The Falcon F1000-M operates via embedded firmware that handles all data collection, alarm reporting, and multiple concurrent communication mediums. The embedded firmware enables system configuration, I/O setup, status inquiries, alarm reports, data logs, and troubleshooting without purchase of additional software. Both systems can be accessed, viewed and configured with any Web browser or through direct-connect application software such as HyperTerminal.

Redundant alarm notification is possible with the F1000-M via email, SNMP, Modbus slave RTU or TCP/IP, and paging via modem. This system can send email to up to four recipients. Also, with an internal PPP-enabled modem, direct dial out to up to four phone numbers is possible. RLE's Falcon F1000-M can accommodate up to four analog, four digital dry contact or thermistor signals, as well as two relay outputs.
