PCSC, a designer and manufacturer of access control solutions based in Torrance, Calif., entered into a strategic partnership with Maxxess Systems Inc., based in Yorba Linda, Calif. This partnership resulted in the development of LiNC-XS™, which PCSC describes as a flexible, enterprise-class access control offering by PCSC. LiNC-XS utilizes a powerful set of security system integration solutions to provide total flexibility and control over a facility’s security infrastructure, the company reported, adding that reduced overall operating costs are achieved through seamless integration and system reliability.

LiNC-XS for Windows® Server provides the power to customize complete access control systems to specific needs without requiring advanced technical expertise, according to PCSC. Applications include multi-tenant office buildings, universities, hospitals, manufacturing facilities and more.

LiNC-XS is an open-architecture application, enabling flexible security management implementations with multitasking support. End-users can manage cardholders, analyze reports, print badges, door access, receive system alerts, mobile alerts, collect time-and-attendance data, and monitor video. It also will set elevator floor access in future releases. LiNC-XS has been designed to fully integrate with PCSC’s complete line of IQ Series controllers, while future releases will support the patented Fault Tolerant Controller.

“We’re excited about the development and release of LiNC-XS. Maxxess has developed a superior application that complements our quality hardware solutions,” said Al Portal, director of Sales – Americas for PCSC.

“We couldn’t be more proud of partnering with Maxxess in the development of LiNC-XS. We share a common vision in providing innovative solutions that lead the future platforms of physical security,” said Mas Kosaka, president and CEO of PCSC.
