The PVMax Master™ is the hierarchy’s apex and has the ability to monitor the entire system.
The PVMax Master controls all underlying PVMax Scanners that manage the scanning algorithm.
The PVMax Master includes an SNMP agent that allows the management software to receive all the relevant data. It collects, saves and transmits connectivity data from the PVMax Scanners via the PVMax Expanders and updates the PatchView for the Enterprise™ (PV4E) management server.
The PVMax Master can monitor up to four communication rooms.
The maximum length of a copper cable connecting the PVMax Master to the PVMax Expander is 1,200m/4,000ft. Each one of these DOWN LINK ports represents a patching site.
