Access control can be used in a variety of different ways from a lock on a car door, to a PIN on an ATM system, to a door control reader granting or denying access to a building.
The Comtrol RocketLinx ACS7106 is a 6-port PoE Plus Ethernet switch purpose-built for delivering reliable power and data connections to access control and mobile surveillance applications. The ACS7106 switch features four 10/100BASE-TX PoE Plus ports for providing power and data to remote PDs (Powered Devices) such as access card readers and IP surveillance cameras and two 10/100/1000BASE-TX uplink ports that assure maximum throughput for high bandwidth applications.
Housed in a durable aluminum enclosure and capable of operating in a wide environmental temperature range, the ACS7106 offers features not found in typical IT-grade switches, including enhanced reliability and ruggedness, voltage boost circuitry for 12/24VDC power connections, an alarm notification relay, and compliance with the stringent UL294B safety certification required by many cities for access control equipment.
Together, these enhanced capabilities and design details deliver the reliability and configuration options that make the Comtrol RocketLinx ACS7106 switch an ideal solution for integrating edge of network cameras and card readers into larger access control systems.
