| Powerful, high-quality, sophisticated access control systems at prices that are much less than others? How did Keri do it? |
Lets start with the world class hardware:
A RISC-based multiprocessor platform, resulting in the new PXL-500 Tiger II Controller, its companion SB-593 Expansion Board, and high performance, low cost proximity readers.
The PXL-500 Tiger Controller has all of the functionality needed to manage a single door, alarm output, and 2 reader ports. A second door can be added when used with SB-593 Satellite Expansion Board.
The SB-593 Satellite Expansion Board economically provides second door control plus extra general purpose inputs and outputs.
The PXL-500 Tiger II Controller Platform
The new PXL-500 Tiger II Controller platform has taken Keri's acclaimed proximity-based access control system to the next level. Strong enough to manage a 256 door network at a single site or 256 doors per site at multiple sites, yet tame enough to handle a single door, the PXL-500 continues Keri's tradition of flexibility and expandability.
UL/CSA CERTIFICATION: The PXL-500 is UL certified under UL-508 (Control Equipment)
Installer Features and Enhancements
