Quick Guide for Selecting the Best Door Controller for Your Application

‘Universal’ performance and exclusive features make it easy.

There’s a reason why Camden door controllers lead the market. They’re equipped with exclusive features, such as a telephone entry system interface, that are simply not offered by other manufacturers. Camden is also the first to deliver ‘universal’ operation, with up to 14 programmable modes and sub-modes, so you only need to stock one controller to do virtually any door access project!

CX-12 switching network is ideal for controlling automatic doors and electric locking devices. This relay provides a telephone entry system interface and supports bi-directional door sequencing.

The CX-12 can program the lock relay to follow the input from an access control system or simple time clock, allowing the door to remain unlocked during business hours while also allowing the exterior push switch to remain in the circuit. After hours, the input from the access control system is removed and the door locks. A key override may be added for additional “after-hours” locking options. The CX-12 is also suitable for other control functions such as door sequencing in one or both directions. For smoke EVAC (fire door) applications, a jumper change allows an extended trigger to send a maintained signal to the operator. For Apartment Entry applications, a direct connection to the phone entry panel simplifies wiring and eliminates the need for an isolating relay.

CX-24/7 is a compact, programmable seven day timer for daily or weekly scheduled control of low voltage systems or devices.

It features a large digital display, and 15 flexible easy-to-program on/off schedules. An internal power source keeps the programs and display readable in the event of a power loss or brownout. The CX-247 can be ordered to operate on 12V, or 24V, AC/DC. The heavy duty relay contacts are rated at 16 amps @ 30 VDC. The “First-Man-In” option maintains security during “snow-days”, sick days, employee absenteeism. The timer schedule does not engage, (and the door remains locked) until the “First-Man-In” activates the entry system.
