ProdataKey (PDK), booth 11109, a manufacturer of cloud access control platforms built for mobile, introduced four new controllers at ISC West. The controllers expand the flexibility of PDK’s high-security Red line: the PDK Red 8, Red Max, Red Gate, and Red Pedestal.
The new PDK Red 8 and PDK Red Max are all-in-one multi-controller and power supply enclosures designed to streamline ordering and installation of access control hardware in mid- to large-scale commercial projects. The Red 8 features a 10-amp power supply and two PDK Red 4 boards capable of supporting a total of 8 doors. The Red Max features two 10-amp power supplies and comes with two Red 4 expander boards, which can be placed in any of the six mounting positions within the enclosure. The Red Max’s remaining positions can be filled with additional 1, 2, or 4-port Red expander boards as desired, supporting up to 24 doors total.
PDK’s other two controller additions, the Red Gate and Red Pedestal, bring Red-level security to outdoor areas like parking lots, garages, gated entrances, athletic fields and loading docks. Each are available in two versions, offering a choice of Wimac wireless or Ethernet connectivity. The Wimac versions feature AES 128 encrypted transmission, one mile line of sight, and a 450-foot average communication distance, simplifying installation at locations that lack wired network infrastructure. The Ethernet versions can be converted to support PoE++ through the use of a plug-and-play add-on module that is sold separately.
