Pacom 8003 Pacom-Edge Intelligent Security Controller

Indianapolis-based Pacom Systems, part of Stanley Black & Decker, launches the 8003 Pacom-Edge intelligent security controller that combines the critical capabilities of an IP-based alarm panel, access control panel and multi-card reader interface into a single device.

Specifically engineered for convenient installation in any location rated for a 3U rack mount device and compact in size, the new 8003 Pacom-Edge Intelligent Security Controller can operate standalone for smaller or remote environments where real estate is a factor. It can also be easily incorporated into a fully integrated alarm and access control system for enterprise-wide, multi-site applications.

Users can conveniently configure the controller via an embedded web interface or by using the advanced Pacom Windows-based management software, which can also be used to remotely and easily monitor a large number of protected facilities simultaneously.

The 8003 Pacom-Edge Intelligent Security Controller also boasts eight on-board zones, eight outputs and supports up to 500,000 cards/users and 50,000 offline transactions with the addition of an on-board plugin in expansion modules and a secure digital (SD) card slot. The 8003 can also support up to 64 zones that can be grouped into as many as 32 areas, and up to four card readers can be connected directly to the 8003 Pacom-Edge Intelligent Security Controller. Alarm communications occur via a specified data network or framework using IP, GPRS, PSTN or other signaling means in a hierarchical manner, based on availability and cost. The device can be configured to reflect daily opening and closing schedules, and also offers two-door access control capability.
