Davicom Cortex 360


Davicom introduces its most powerful Remote Site Management System ever!

Based on the latest hardware processors running an embedded Linux Operating System, the

Cortex 360 incorporates 30 years of experience and knowledge in the remote site

management industry. The resulting product is a versatile and intelligent unit that is very

reasonably priced.

Whether it be the redundant power supply inputs, the extensive networking/SNMP

capabilities, the secure web-based access, the differential metering inputs with high common mode

voltages or the full electromagnetic immunity, everything in the Cortex 360 says Professional Grade product!


  • 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.
  • Add redundancy thanks to dual Power Supply inputs with 10-30VDC ranges. Use standard 12VDC or 24VDC power supplies.
  • 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 upgrade.
  • 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.
  • Future-proof your 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 USB hub.
  • 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.
