Access Control System:

The Controller, AD-CTR-2-V.1

Each AD-CTR-2-V.1 controller is able to support two card readers and/or two numeric keypads using different types of technologies including proximity, smart R/W cards, biometrics, magnetic stripe and bar code. It is capable of controlling one door being configured as 'IN' & 'OUT' (with readers/keypads on each side of a single door) or two separate doors with only one reader/keypad for the non-secure side.

Distributed Processing Technology

The Controller is used the Distributed Processing technology that the access authorization is being determined by the programmed parameters contained in the controllers memory. The memory is able to store the parameters of 7,500 card holders' and access control database in memory for the present version1.0.

The Controller will be upgraded to store the programmed parameters of 10,000 card holders and the entire access control database in memory for the next version that is expected to come within this year. Since each card holder has a unique identification card or PIN, it is possible to restrict or grant access to each door according to different parameters such as the day of the week and the time of day.

While in off-line operation, each Controller is able to store 4,000 events and will upload to the workstation automatically when communication between the PC is restored. All memory for the parameters of the Controller can be retained for 180 days when power failure.

Both Visual and audible feedback of the access decision are provided to each card holder using two auxiliary outputs being built-in from the reader.

Communication Protocol

The communication protocol of each Controller is using RS-485 bus that the maximum distance can be up to 1.2 kilometers. A total of 128 Controllers can be connected for one loop for Standalone version. A maximum of 12 loops can be supported for our LAN version using our AD-COM-BD-V.1. As for the PC platforms, our systems run on Win NT, Win 2000, and Win XP.

Auxiliary Relay Outputs

Each Controller comes with two Auxiliary outputs that can be served as local door alarms to report door forced open, door open too long, door unlocked, lighting control, ventilation, air conditioning. These relay outputs can be activated according to parameters being set following the schedules, events reported by the system or a combination of different logic conditions.

Point Monitoring

Each AD-CTR-02-v1.0 can monitor the state of 8 input points such as magnetic contacts, Request-to-exit push button, motion detectors, temperature sensors or any other device with dry contacts. All input points are terminated with end-of-line resistors to ensure the line integrity.

Man Trap Feature

This feature is specially being applied for sector to curb the 'follow through' or 'hold up' happenings. Any authorized card holder is not able to open the second door unless the first door is being closed while in 'Man-trap' operation or any entrance requires two doors for access.

System Expansion

As the system is expanded, the AD-CTR-02-V.1 PCB remains the same to provide flexibility and savings in the future. The controller has been designed to meet most access control and integrated point monitoring applications without expensive add-ons.

The Controller can control two access doors or be linked to a network controlling hundreds of doors. The small initial system can grow without replacing the original controllers.

The Eminence System provides users with much more than basic access control features. In its standard configuration, the system not only provides sophisticated features for the demanding and versatile installation requirements, and it complies with functionality and budgetary requirements.

Our system is of simple installation, ease of maintenance, and reliable. Thousands of installations have proved that these qualities insure continued problem free operation.

Exclusive Power Supply

The power supply of Controller provides surge protections and watchdog circuits to maintain the operation is in its highest integrity.

Memory and autonomy

All controllers maintain the access control database in memory. This means that the Controller keeps all information regarding cards, schedules, access codes and can verify access requests even when it is disconnected from the network. The memory is protected by a lithium battery maintaining data even if the usual battery backup is disconnected. Date and time are also retained by this on-board battery.

Other Features

▪ All connectors are plug-in type, reducing wiring errors and making it easy to remove for testing or service.

▪ The back-up battery is supervised and being connected to a separate independent PCB to save battery life and prevent erratic operation because of low battery or failure. Each KT-200 is burned-in for a full 48 hours of operation before it leaves the factory. Since the KT-200 uses recognized standards, it can easily upgrade existing installations that may have become outdated.

▪ The cabinet includes a key lock and with master-key provided (please specify when ordering)

Electro-magnetic locks

These solid construction electro magnetic locks will provide years of maintenance free operation. Dual voltage (12-24VDC) operation and up to 680kg (1500lbs) of holding force fits most requirements. The supervised option provides lock status information (locked or unlocked) and will detect reduced holding force due to the presence of materials between magnet and armature or, power loss.

Electric Door Strikes

Commercial and industrial rated door strikes that can withstand the traffic involved with access control applications. They are tested to 500,000 cycles. These strikes are fail lock (fail secure) for free exit application. Do not use to control egress. Can be used with cylindrical, narrowline and mortise locks with centerline latch entry. The strikes are listed under UL10B(Fire rated), UL1034, ANSI/BHMA E09321 and New York City MEA 404-91-M.
