HID Global of Irvine, Calif. releases the next generation of the EDGE EVO and VertX EVO controller platforms for customizable-networked access control solutions.
The platforms offer an open and scalable development platform for the deployment of a wide range of access control functionality, including remote management options, real-time monitoring, report generation and a powerful custom rules engine that enables the use of the system hardware for complementary applications.
The EDGE EVO controllers, reader/controllers and IO modules feature on-board encrypted Hi-O communication buses. The series also offers 12/24VDC lock support, mounting options and plug-and-play IO modules that extend IO at and behind the door.
The VertX EVO V1000 controller and the V2000 controller/reader interface solutions expand cardholder capacity, decrease door transaction time and increase door uptime, while offering 100% plug-in compatibility with existing HID Global access control systems and associated V100, V200 and V300 downstream devices, according to the company.
The controllers also come with a comprehensive developer tool kit (DTK) for developing to OPIN API when migrating from first generation EDGE and VertX or for new development using the latest platform.
