Designed for enterprise-wide access control and intrusion detection applications, Monitor Dynamics of San Antonio releases the power over Ethernet (PoE), IP-based unified digital controller (UDC).
Powered by the company’s BlueEdge intelligent control equipment (ICE), the UDC is a dual-port Ethernet IP panel that transmits entry and exit data via high-speed communications. Utilizing a Linux-based processor for stability, the device communicates to the head-end with complete fail-over, at rates exponentially faster than standard serial based communications, according to the company.
As a scalable hardware device located at the edge of the network, the product comes with three downstream RS-485 communication ports that can be used to connect various combinations of field hardware, including additional UDC panels (up to 31 devices). It also supports 250,000 cardholders and 50,000 events.
