The BDR Spotlight
Something You Should Know More About:
Davicom is recognized in the industry as being very
responsive to customer needs and suggestions. Feature requests are
often incorporated into the next firmware release, usually within 6 to
To continue growing and adding the many features
requested by our extensive user-base, it has become necessary to
redefine a hardware platform that will enable our evolution well into
We are therefore very excited to present the first
member of Davicom’s new Cortex product family:
In order to satisfy demanding customer requirements
and evolving industry standards, the Cortex 360 is built upon the
latest hardware processor (Dual ARM) running an embedded Linux kernel.
Instantly see site status
thanks to the built-in OLED system display. Easily view detailed
system status and alarm conditions.
Save power thanks to the
unit’s small (300 mA) current draw at 12VDC. Stay in control of your
site for longer periods on battery backup power when power fails, or
operate from solar powered installations. Provisions are in place
for further decreases in power draw in the future.
Take full advantage of the
power and flexibility of SNMP site management. Use the Cortex360’s
SNMP-Manager war machine with up to 1024 GET, SET and TRAP commands
to manage external devices.
Save on having a computer at
the site with the built-in video output and keyboard/mouse inputs.
Get full on-site management without an external computer.
Manage your site over very
low bandwidth communications channels down to 2400 baud (if regular
dial-up or IP channels are not available). Regular high-speed
Ethernet, dial-up modem and DTMF/voice-response connectivity are
also included for free.
Count on stress-free
firmware upgrades thanks to the Cortex360’s dual firmware memory
spaces that ensure fail-over and roll-back operation. Upgrades
become virtually unbrickable, even if you pull the plug during an
Measure practically any type
of analog sensor through the unit’s fully differential metering
inputs. Input ranges between ±0.5V and ±80V with a common mode of up to ±80V ensure full flexibility.
Automatically detect channel
silence with the built-in RMS signal detectors.
Monitor the status of
various pieces of site equipment by virtue of the Cortex360’s status
inputs with fully independent ground returns.
network installation thanks to the Cortex360’s IPV6 compatibility.
Save on site gadgets
thanks to the Cortex360’s built-in 4-port Ethernet switch and 4-port
Easily navigate through
Davicom’s new simplified and streamlined HTML 5 user-configurable
web-based GUI. If you are already an experienced Davicom user,
build on your familiarity and use the Advanced mode or Davicom’s
DavLink software to take full advantage of the unit’s power.
Operate with confidence
in freezing cold or burning hot environments. The Cortex360’s
industrial temperature range (-40 to +70°C, -40 to +158°F) will keep
it going in extreme conditions, should your site’s HVAC fail or if
your site simply does not have a controlled environment.
No worries knowing the
units are FCC, IC, CE and RoHS compliant.

A final note: Davicom’s
DV-200 series has been on the market since 2006 (for over a decade)
and it has served well. We will continue to build, sell and support
the DV-Micro, DV-Mini and DV-208/216 for many years, just as we are
still able to support products that we built and sold in the 1990’s.
