Mercury Security Introduces New Linux Intelligent Controller Line
The new LP intelligent controller series is said to offer advanced security, enhanced performance and extensive third-party integration support for a wide range of complimentary applications.
LONG BEACH, Calif. — Mercury Security, a leader in OEM access control hardware and part of HID Global, announces the launch of its next-generation LP intelligent controller platform built on the Linux operating system.
The new controllers are said to offer advanced security and performance, plus extensive support for third-party applications and integrations. The controllers are based on an identical form factor that enables seamless upgrades for existing Mercury-based deployments, according to the company.
“As the industry leader in open platform hardware that addresses the diverse set of access control requirements, Mercury is defined by our ability to offer relevant solutions that meet the future needs of our partners and their customers,” states Matthew Barnette, president of Mercury Security. “Our new LP controllers mark a major step in forwarding our long-term vision of providing open architecture-based access control systems, especially in today’s new era of technologies and applications that are being used in smarter and more connected environments.”
The multidevice and third-party application integration capabilities allow organizations to easily integrate wireless locks, destination dispatch elevator controllers, intelligent power supplies and strong authentication for FIPS-201 government applications, according to the company.
The LP controller platform is said to dramatically improve overall system security through stronger encryption, IT standards support and OSDP support to protect reader connectivity and extended applications with Secure Channel.
In addition, the controllers’ embedded crypto memory chip provides an extra layer of protection for encrypted data-at-rest applications. This allows customers to significantly increase their security. Combining these features with an improved processor, the new LP controller line also delivers unrivaled capacity and speed, according to the company.
Mercury’s new controller line includes the LP4502, LP1501, LP1502 and LP2500, allowing OEMs, channel partners and end customers to choose the controller configuration that best fits their needs. Partners and end customers can benefit from LP controllers in new access control systems or they can be used for seamless plug-and-play upgrades from Mercury’s existing EP series controllers.
