The Remote Alarm Controller is used to indicate when the Micromate unit has exceeded the trigger levels you’ve configured. When you connect lights or sirens to the Remote Alarm controller, you can receive audible or visual alerts that your activities are near or have exceeded the trigger levels. Trigger levels on the Micromate can be set based on your project’s requirements and can be different for each job. With an early warning system, you can manage vibration or noise inducing activities before concerns develop.
The Remote Alarm Controller connects to the auxiliary port on the Micromate monitoring unit, a factory installed option. The auxiliary port can be installed on existing Micromate units when they are returned to Instantel for calibration. The Remote Alarm Controller comes complete with a 2 m (6.5 ft) cable but it can also be used with Instantel’s 30 m (100 ft) or 75 m (250 ft) extension cables.
Some monitoring applications require hard copy reports to be printed in the field. The Micromate provides a USB interface which can be used to connect an external printer for in-field printing. The Portable Printer is battery operated and can easily be transported to the site and connected to the Micromate to print the event reports right in the field.
The protective boot and cover have been specifically designed to protect the Micromate unit and provide flexibility when mounting the unit. The robust protective boot and separate protective cover offer an easy-on, easy-off installation. The Micromate Boot can be mounted to a wall permanently and then when needed, the Micromate can easily be fit into the Boot.
The clear protective cover has been designed to hinge at either end. It protects the Micromate’s screen against damage and the elements while offering the operator easy access to the unit’s touch screen. The cover panel is designed to prevent water from pooling on the unit. Each end of the cover has a curved lip to help prevent drainage directly onto the connectors, while the sides drain to the outside of the boot.
The protective boot is made of a durable silicon based compound. This material has been designed to handle temperature extremes in excess of -50°C and 100°C (-58°F to 212°F) and still remain flexible. Construction sites, mines, quarries and other job sites are constantly changing and can often have adverse weather conditions. The Boot protects the Micromate unit from any accidental dropping, crushing or other impacts. The Micromate Protective Boot and Cover is an inexpensive way to protect your investment in the Micromate monitoring unit.
