Altronix is demonstrating its Entrada2DMK Network Access FACP adapters at ISC West 2016. These adapters provide a supervised fire alarm interface, enabling network door controllers to release locking devices in a fire alarm condition while maintaining PoE to network door controllers and readers.
“The Entrada2DMK Network Access FACP Adapters enable network door controllers to interface with fire alarm control panels providing emergency egress. This is accomplished without the added cost of running additional cables and having to deploy more power supplies and fire relays,” said Alan Forman, president, Altronix Corporation. “Entrada2DMK adapters also isolate lock power from the network door controller, providing a cleaner and safer installation.”
The Entrada2DMK kit includes one Entrada2DMR receiver and an Entrada2DMT transmitter. These PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at) compliant adapters route PoE to network access controllers and provide selectable 12VDC or 24VDC power for up to two strikes or mag locks. A single FACP connection links multiple Entrada units to accommodate network door controllers. Additional features include built-in overload protection and electronically filtered and regulated outputs. Entrada2DMK is compatible with virtually any manufacturers’ network door controllers, according to an Altronix press release.
Entrada2DMK is UL listed in the U.S. and Canada for access control and information technology equipment, and is CSFM and CE approved.
