DMP, LifeSafety Power Bring to Market Customized Enclosure for Access Control
The DCLASS enclosure combines DMP’s access hardware, system power, lock power and optional network management modules into an optimized wall space footprint.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) and LifeSafety Power have collaborated to bring to market a customized enclosure that is said to simplify the installation of power supply and sub-assemblies for access control.
“A lot of our dealers have told us they like using LifeSafety power supplies and enclosures,” says Adam Kinder, product manager, DMP Access Control. “In combination with our controllers it’s a solution that requires no modification.”
LifeSafety specializes in smart power solutions and patented remote networking capabilities. Among its access control power systems, the company offers the DCLASS integrated DMP power system for 2 to 18 doors. It is said to be a customized system that is combined with DMP’s 734/734N Wiegand interface modules, contained in one compact and secure UL-listed enclosure.
This all-in-one approach minimizes wall space, simplifies installation and reduces time and labor costs, according to an announcement.
Traditionally, access control integrators require three separate cabinets for system power, lock power and access hardware, plus an electrician to wire the cabinet space and each of those power supplies. The DCLASS combines DMP’s access hardware, system power, lock power and optional network management modules into an optimized wall space footprint, the announcement states.
“Since our modules are covered inside the enclosure, they’re available to order with or without their plastic covers,” Kinder says. In addition to single and dual-voltage options, he adds, “The DCLASS offers a managed option with networked power specifications for live voltage and current reporting, as well as remote battery load testing, output power cycling, and abnormal operation alerts.”
All of the DCLASS power configurations and related technical documents are posted here on LifeSafety Power’s website. Orders should be made through LifeSafety or its distribution.
“We’re excited to offer this integration to our dealers. This gives them an additional power and access control solution they’ve been asking for,” says Kinder.
