Secondary Infrastructure Element Management System

Secondary Infrastructure Element Management System

OOI RSN Principal Engineer Mike Harrington takes a look at the element management system (EMS) that monitors junction-box power and communications. The EMS provides current, voltage, and temperature information from the node in real time and is vital to monitoring the health and safety of the instruments. Alarms are generated when a parameter moves out of range so that corrective actions may be taken.
