Secura Key of Chatsworth, Calif., launches the NOVA.16 (Model SK-MRCP) multi-reader access control panel.
Based on the ARM Cortex M3, 32-bit RISC processor, the panel connects to the local area network, as well as to a high speed, RS485 peripheral network consisting of up to 16 single-door smart readers, each containing all of the inputs and outputs to control and monitor a single door. This eliminates the labor and cost of cable home runs, and multiple control panel installations, according to the company.
Additionally, the panel communicates with the company’s SK-WIO-1 Single Door Wiegand Interface, which allows any Wiegand device to be connected to NOVA.16, including keypad readers, biometric readers, long range readers and non-Secura Key card readers.
The product boasts a 3-Amp heavy-duty power supply with power line noise immunity, and it continually monitors backup battery status.
