The new compact TCU 8000i is a universal, intelligent
terminal control unit suitable for multiple applications,
particularly building security and control systems.
Each TCU 8000i unit can support up to a maximum of 16 card
readers (8 doors), and 64 input and output points via various
types of I/O boards. Depending on application requirements,
multiple TCU 8000i units can be connected in a cluster to
NIU-4 or NIU-5, and to the central supervisory computers.
As a basic building block for the PowerVision™ Enterprise
Security Management System, it also supports a range of
hardware modules, making it a flexible and powerful platform.
Consisting of a CPU board, a lightning protection board, a
regulated power supply unit, an AC/DC power converter
board, an AC line filter, and a circuit breaker, there remains
enough space within the key-locked enclosure to mount either
an 8-channel input board (PCA-22024A), or an 8-channel I/O
board (PCA-22033).
In applications involving smart-cards and smart-card readers,
the CPU board requires an optional built-in interface to a
Secure Access Module (SAM) board to facilitate secured
authentication between the smart-cards and the CPU. This
offers extra security, and maximises investment for systems
employing smart-cards.
The CPU board contains a microprocessor, RAM memory, and
all the necessary communications ports to interface with
external Network Interface Units (NIUs), card reader
controller units, and remote I/O units.
The enclosure is also equipped with a tamper switch that
detects unwarranted intrusion, while an audio-visual alarm
sounds in the absence of an AC source.
