Ethernet I/O for Building Security and Control Applications
Implement powerful building controls by combining the features of Acromag Ethernet I/O Modules with the flexibility of the ISONAS Access Control System. Discrete I/O Modules control access to doors, cabinets, and other electrically controlled devices. A standard TCP/IP network provides communication with the control system. Monitor and control as many points as needed. Extend control of those points to any location where an IP message can be sent.
ISONAS door access technology does away with the control panel entirely, piggybacks on the existing network wiring already in place, requires no hardwiring to building power and involves installation only of a single, standard network cable to each reader. Acromag’s 989EN Discrete I/O Module monitors door lock strikes and door sensor switches. For large point counts, an ES2113 can be used.
See the Knowledge Base Article on this application.
With this type of system, a business can scale up from one to thousands of doors by simply adding new readers as needed at a predictable cost per door and same single cable installation. This takes much of the complexity and about 1/3rd of the cost out of the decision to install or expand a door access system. By piggybacking on the existing network cabling, facility managers and security personnel can quickly and easily install the IP-based door access readers to a common network switch with standard cables powered by the built in Power over Ethernet (PoE), thus eliminating hardwiring to the building’s power.
