IP WatchDog Lite

Product canceled
New product Available

IP WatchDog Lite monitors function of Ethernet devices. Compared with its full version, the IP WatchDog Lite detects the devices' functionality using only PING. If there is no response within a specified time period, IP WatchDog will RESET the device (or switch to a back-up communication circuit, set off an alarm etc.) A single WatchDog Lite device can independently monitor up to two devices, such as servers, routers, access and security systems.

  • Two independent relays intended to use two switching contacts to reset or start monitored devices
  • Monitoring ethernet devices using outgoing PING (ICMP)
  • Monitoring ethernet devices using incoming ICMP command - PING.
  • One relay contact is always nonpotentional, the second is connected to WatchDog's power supply
  • Manual control (Startup / Shutdown / Restart) of the monitored devices.
  • Ethernet - RJ45 (10BASE-T - IEEE 802.3).
Applications and usage: 
  • Server and Router monitoring and restarting.
  • Monitoring of network infrastructure.
  • ADSL and cable modem supervision.
  • WIFI AP monitoring
  • Security and access systems
  • Backup connection activating in case network connectivity failure.

IP WatchDog Lite monitors two independent channels (each channel controls one of the two relays) where it detects responses from remote device to ICMP command - PING. In case of remote device drop-out, the IPWatchDog activates the relay. This way you can restart device, shut it down for a specified time or start for example a back-up circuit.

Detection of remote device's function:

  • Monitored device receives a PING that is sent periodically from IP Watchdog.
  • Monitored device sends PING periodically to IP Watchdog's IP address.

IP WatchDog functions

  • Monitoring ethernet devices using outgoing PING (ICMP)
    Note: It is possible to enter an alternative IP address for monitoring functionality of the network line (for instance).
  • Monitoring ethernet devices using incoming ICMP command - PING.
  • Note: It is possible to provide an alternative IP address for example for network line monitoring.
  • It can reset device after its failure.
  • It can launch backup systems in case of long dropout.
  • Manual relay control via WWW interface (password protected).
