PAC launches new access range
PAC has announced a comprehensive redesign of its range in order to meet the rigorous demands of today’s end users. This streamlines PAC’s offering with products that combine the benefits of state-of-the-art hardware and software, delivering high levels of security, sustainability and ease of use.
Key components of the new PAC portfolio are PAC 512DC networkable access controllers, which replace the PAC 500 range. Future-proof and certified to the latest industry standards, PAC 512 comprises two variants: the 512DC analogue and 512DCi digital access controllers. Scalable from 1-2000 doors, these controllers support up to 75,000 unique identification devices via Access Central, PAC’s enhanced management software.
The controllers feature two inputs and two outputs, as well as providing functionality including local anti-passback, event to action, mustering, lift call and alarm point control.
By removing the need for ancillary equipment, PAC 512 offers a cost-effective solution which is easy to configure, install, maintain and use.
PAC’s PS50 energy efficient Power Supply boasts 80 per cent efficiency at most loads, and uses less power than PAC’s previously available power supply unit, at the same price point.
PAC’s Access Central management software replaces the company’s SecureNet solution. It can be adapted to suit every access control installation, whether a single site business or a global organisation. Backwards compatible with SecureNet, it is available via digital download in SE and professional licence editions.
The SE licence level delivers a high level of functionality in a free distribution. Access Central can be configured to operate on a standalone PC or across a corporate network. It displays detailed, real-time event information, including alarms as they occur, across a facility, while also providing ease of management of any installed 512DC and 512DCi devices.
Other features include Active Directory integration, which reduces set-up and management of keyholders when connected to an Active Directory feed.
