AMAG Technology designs PoE network controller with two door support
The Symmetry EN-2DBC Edge Network Controller offers a flexible, easy to install controller option for organizations looking to deploy a distributed IP-based access control system, expand their current access control system, secure only a few doors or upgrade their legacy system.
AMAG technology has strengthened its network controller offering with the introduction of the Symmetry™ EN-2DBC Edge Network Controller. Supporting two doors, the Symmetry EN-2DBC utilizes Power over Ethernet (PoE) and PoE+ where installers need to run only a single Ethernet cable that carries both power and data to the controller. This allows greater flexibility in locating the controller on the network and decreases installation time, saving money.
Now available in a sleek Plenum Rated enclosure, the network controller supports 90,000 card holders and 18,000 transactions. The enclosure has a removable lid and tamper switch as standard. The Symmetry Edge Network Controller can be powered using PoE (IEEE 802.3af), PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at), or locally via a 12VDC supply. When powered using PoE+, 1500mA total is available for reader and lock power.
The flexible Symmetry EN-2DBC contains four general purpose inputs to monitor additional security devices or areas not equipped with a card reader. Two general purpose relay outputs provide flexible options for enhanced security.
The Symmetry EN-2DBC requires the newly released Symmetry V8.0.1 access control software, and can be used with Symmetry Business, Professional and Enterprise versions. Supporting Wiegand and Symmetry MCLP reader protocols, the Symmetry EN-2DBC provides simple network management protocol (SNMP) support. The Symmetry Edge Network Controller incorporates Flash Memory supporting downloadable firmware and allowing firmware enhancements via a PC, simplifying upgrades and minimizing installation time.
