Datastream modules use standard cable
November 1, 2005
Companies with an investment in traditional controller technology need not discard their legacy systems. Viscount Systems, Inc. has enhanced its MESH product line with the Datastream modules, which can be remotely or centrally located using standard data cable to allow end users to use legacy RFID and biometric readers when deploying networks in MESH-enabled buildings. The modules allow the expansion of MESH to control a range of specialty devices not yet MESH-enabled, including infrared, radio frequency, bar code, magnetic stripe and smartcard. The modules can connect up to 255 readers to a single server at a significantly reduced cost from the companyâ€™s older controller technology. Viscount Systems Inc.
