Davicom DV Series –
Monitoring, Alarm and Control
for your remote sites
Davicom’s line of intelligent site monitoring systems is designed
to meet the requirements of the broadcasting and wireless
telecommunications industries. These best-in-class, stand-alone
monitoring and control units interface easily with virtually any type
of remote site equipment
and sensors, which ensures
maximum flexibility and
expandability. Immediate
access to real-time site
information can be just a
mouse click away
Reliable Technology
Leading the Field
Since 1994
Davicom systems provide automation with decision-making features and
commands that go well beyond conventional telemetry systems. The Davicom
units can for example detect an RF failure; place the standby transmitter
on-air to restore the signal, and alert on-call personnel. Engineering staff
can then diagnose the problem from the event history log and, using
remote measurements, decide on the appropriate course of action.
Ultimate Connectivity for Maximum Performance
Multilevel alarms can be sent by the Davicom units to the Network Operations Centre (NOC) and other
resources by e-mail, phone (voice or SMS), pager, SNMP traps, fax, modem, or to the DavNet multisite alarm management software. Multiple alarm-call lists allow the Davicom to contact different groups
depending on the event, or the day and time. Individual signal and status conditions
can be filtered using time delays and hysteresis to prevent annoyance alarms.
Davicom units can be interrogated via PC using the DavLink software,
with a Web browser or SNMP manager, or by telephone to check
signals and status, monitor live audio feeds and execute
commands. Blackberry®, iPhone® and other smart phones and
devices can also be used to monitor and control a site over the
mobile Internet and from WiFi hotspots. The Davicom’s reachthrough serial ports can be used to access and control other on-site
ancillary equipment. The Davicom units can even ping site equipment
through its local IP port and monitor for dial tone on the telephone line.
Save Time & Money
For several years, leading broadcasters and first responder organizations around the world have been
relying on efficient Davicom technology to remotely monitor and control their site equipment and reduce
operating costs.

•
Single-location management of all sites.
•
•
Automated operations and manual
control to minimize operational
downtime.
Real-time access to site information from
anywhere in the world.
•
•
Fewer trips to remote sites.
No moving parts such

drives.
•
Stand-alone units that do not require a
computer at the site.

Bilingual Voice &
Screen Capability
Each user can select the language for DavLink displays
(ASCII and Unicode character sets), as well as the
voice response system. Custom vocabulary can be
factory-recorded into Davicom units, allowing them
to “speak” information using different descriptive
phrases.
Intuitive Software,
No Macro or Script Writing
DavLink software uses Boolean logic (AND,
OR, NAND, NOR) and mathematical functions
( + , - , X , ÷ ) to allow non-programmers to create
complex operations with ease. Each Davicom unit has
128 virtual logic gates and 16 mathematical functions
to program multiple conditional actions and complex
logic functions (control relays, set qualifiers, view
flags, or other events). In addition, Davicom units
have qualifier and inverter functions on all inputs. A
built-in configuration wizard guides users through a
step-by-step set-up procedure.
Complete Package, Relays Included
All output relays are included and are individually software configurable
for latch, follow and variable-length pulse modes. This ensures better
compatibility with equipment control requirements.
Package includes screw-terminal break-out panels, cables
and a 12VDC power supply. DavLink software and firmware
upgrades are included, upgrades are free and there is NO
ANNUAL MAINTENANCE FEE.

Time & Event-Based Conditions
Multi-User
Date/time events & windows can be set up with
the 128 timers available in each Davicom unit. For
example, AM antenna pattern changes with specific
time windows for each month can be configured.
Additionally, 16 alarm call lists can be constructed
with specific time windows or events (alert different
persons during day/night work shifts, contact the fire
department directly upon fire alarm, etc.).
Up to 4 different users out of a possibility of 16 can
connect simultaneously to Davicom units. Users can
have access levels ranging from simple view-only to
full administrative privileges. In emergency situations,
Supervisor-level users can take control away from
Operators who are already connected.
Customizable Software
DavLink’s graphics editor allows the creation of workspaces that reflect the exact setup of equipment
at each remote site. Users can have their own customized, password-protected workspace and create
multiple view panels with diagrams, and even pictures. Users can also focus-in on desired information
thanks to user defined and system logs.

Modbus* I/O expansion
Low-cost option for adding up to 128 metering inputs, 256 status inputs and
72 relay outputs, even to a DV-Micro! All Davicom units accommodate both
RTU and TCP type ModBus devices from manufacturers such as ADAM® and
Koyo®. Once connected and configured, the Modbus units simply appear as extra I/O points in the
Davicom’s operating structure. These I/O’s can therefore be used within the Davicom’s powerful Virtual
Logic Gate structure to automatically take action at a site or to send alarms if required.
* Modbus is a serial communications protocol published by Modicon in 1979 for use with its programmable logic controllers
(PLCs). It has become a de facto standard protocol for industrial communications, and is now the most commonly available means
of connecting industrial electronic devices.
Data logging and DavLink data trending
All Davicom units have the capability of taking
input readings at a 1-Hz rate and storing them to
an external USB device such as a Flash memory
stick or hard disk drive. Up to 32 inputs can be
simultaneously sampled and stored in this manner.
Readings can then be browsed and/or transferred
at a later date to facilitate troubleshooting of
intermittent site problems. Note that a data
connection with adequate bandwidth must be
available to download the complete site data log.
Alternatively, small snippets of data for particular
dates and times can be transferred over a modem
connection, or the USB memory device could be
physically brought back from the site following a
normal site visit.
The DavLink site communications application can
be used to view site readings in graphical form
when connected live to a site. This allows easy
visualization of site trends and problems.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
All Davicom units, except the DV-Micro, have a built-in SNMP agent to allow monitoring and control from a
central SNMP manager. When activated, this agent allows remote SNMP management systems to perform
GETs, SETs and to receive traps from Davicom units.
In addition, all Davicom units, except the DV-Micro have a built-in SNMP Manager that allows them to take
readings, set controls and receive alarms from SNMP enabled devices such as transmitters. This monitoring
and control is achieved over a simple RJ-45 TCP/IP connection between the Davicom and the device, thus
greatly facilitating interface wiring. This I/O functionality is fully integrated into the
Davicom’s powerful Virtual Logic Gate structure to take full advantage of all
of the Davicom features.
Network Management Software
DavNet is an optional Network Operations Center
management software that collects alarms and data
from large networks of Davicom units. DavNet can
redirect alarms to external printers, e-mail, SMS text
messages and SNMP traps. DavNet also includes a
built-in web server to give external users access to NOC
data and to Davicom units.
Electromagnetic Compatibility
Davicom units have been developed and tested to
operate in high-level electric fields of up to 10V/m
and to resist electrostatic discharges of up to 12kV.
Exactly the type of environment you would expect to
find near high power transmitters on a mountaintop
with a metal tower!
Optional Sensors
Davicom can supply various external sensors that allow measurement of quantities such as: AC line voltage,
AC line current, AC line frequency, indoor and outdoor temperature and relative humidity.

Bidirectional RF Power Sensor
RMS RF Power Sensor
Outdoor Temperature Sensor
