Features PremiSys™ Two-Reader Controller

Features PremiSys™ Two-Reader Controller
• The Two-Reader Controller connects to the PremiSys system
components listed below. A mix of up to 32 of these hardware
components, connected using one port via two-wire RS-485,
is possible:
~~ The Input Board provides 16 supervisable inputs
The Two-Reader Controller is an intelligent controller for
IDenticard® PremiSys™ access control. With an onboard
Ethernet port, two reader ports and increased memory, the
Two-Reader Controller is a cost-effective access control
solution for any size application, from single-controller
installations to applications requiring scores of controllers.
Once the system databases are loaded into the controller
memory, the Two-Reader Controller can perform interface
and management functions without dependence on a host
Communications with the host PC are selectable at the time
of installation: TCP/IP via an onboard Ethernet port or serial
RS-232. Communications with other system boards such
as Input, Output and Reader Boards are two-wire RS-485.
The Two-Reader Controller can connect to a maximum of 32
Reader, Input and Output Boards in any combination using
two-wire RS-485 (4,000 feet / 1219 m maximum cable length
per run). Standard communication speed is 38,400 baud;
however, baud rates are selectable and range from 2,400
to 115,200, depending on system, network, computer and
other hardware characteristics.
~~ The Output Board provides 16 Form C, SPDT output relays
~~ The One- or Two-Reader Boards are used with all readers
in the PremiSys system. A maximum of 64 reader ports
can be utilized, including the two on the controller.
• The Two-Reader Controller includes the following components
and features:
~~ A primary port featuring onboard Ethernet
~~ An alternate port for RS-232 communications, allowing
redundancy to the host in the event that the primary
host-communications link is lost
~~ Two reader ports
~~ Four relays configurable for normally open or normally closed
~~ Eight general-purpose input points that can be supervised or
not to serve as door-input points, request-to-exit points, etc.
~~ Two dedicated input points for monitoring power loss to the
board and enclosure tampering
~~ 17 MB memory including 16 MB non-volatile flash memory for
card and system information and 1 MB SRAM for transactions
and new card information
~~ 16 MB SDRAM for system firmware and database storage for
the application
~~ LEDs to indicate controller status
~~ A DIP switch for Web browser communication to the controller,
for the purpose of configuring the communication parameters
~~ A 3-volt lithium coin cell that provides RAM and clock backup
• The Two-Reader Controller is to be housed in a wall-mounted
enclosure that can contain other PremiSys components as well. The
Two-Reader Controller can be wired to alert system operators if the
enclosure is tampered with. An optional lock for the enclosure door
is available.
• The Two-Reader Controller is rated for Class 2 low-voltage
applications. IDenticard®-approved 12 VDC power supplies are
available. A relay on this power supply can be wired to provide a
power-loss alert. Optional backup power can be provided by a
12-volt battery connected to the power supply.
• Firmware for the Two-Reader Controller is FLASH upgradeable.
