Dortronics Demonstrates Multiple Door Control Solutions

Perhaps one of the most innovative solutions in the security industry is the mantrap control system, and visitors to this year's ASIS International Annual Seminar and Exhibits will have the opportunity to see a wide range of these devices at the Dortronics Systems booth.

The featured display includes a complete selection of door control products ranging from simple two-door units to custom-programmable, 128-door, multifunction units. Also highlighted are related products such as locks, switches, traffic lights and annunciator/control panels.

"Door interlock and mantrap control products are a reliable and highly workable solution for ensuring door control and Dortronics has a product portfolio that can meet a wide spectrum of needs," said Bryan Sanderford, National Sales Manager, Dortronics Systems, Inc. "The advanced 4700 and 4900 systems capitalize on our advanced PLC- based controllers that can handle any size door application, including air locks, clean room environments and security mantraps, while our base model 4300 systems provide an economical solution for two-door applications."

Dortronics' 4700 Series Mantrap Control systems are PLC-based controllers that economically control up to four normally unlocked doors or three normally locked doors. The system provides six digital inputs, 2 DPDT Relay outputs and 2 SPDT Relay outputs, and may also be customized to control automatic door openers and provide timing and logic sequences for biological wash-down controls. Any access control system can be used with the 4700 Series controllers.

Dortronics' 4900 Series Interlock Control is designed to handle systems of over 100 doors. The PLC-based controllers can be programmed to operate doors with automatic openers and to provide custom-timing and logic sequences for biological wash-down and air purging controls. The series is available with 8-input/4-output modules and optional 4-relay output expansion modules. Custom sequencing and timing functions and traffic light control for user feedback may be configured with the optional LED display timer module. Built-in power supply provides a field-selectable 12 or 24vDC output for the PLCs. This power can operate magnetic locks and/or strikes for doors, as well as LED indicators.

The 4300 Series, powered by the built-in 4 amp power supply is a cost effective and convenient way to control two interlocked doors. The 4300 Series also provides outputs for traffic lights, forced doors and an emergency panic release input. An optional remote connection allows override of one or both locks by remote console, panic switch or similar actuator.

    The Importance of Proactive Security Measures: 4 Stories of Regret

    We all want to believe that crime won’t happen to us. So, some business owners hope for the best and put proactive security measures on the back burner, because other things like growth, attracting new customers, and meeting deadlines all seem more pressing. Read Now

  • Enhanced Situation Awareness

    Did someone break into the building? Maybe it is just an employee pulling an all-nighter. Or is it an actual perpetrator? Audio analytics, available in many AI-enabled cameras, can add context to what operators see on the screen, helping them validate assumptions. If a glass-break detection alert is received moments before seeing a person on camera, the added situational awareness makes the event more actionable. Read Now

  • Transformative Advances

    Over the past decade, machine learning has enabled transformative advances in physical security technology. We have seen some amazing progress in using machine learning algorithms to train computers to assess and improve computational processes. Although such tools are helpful for security and operations, machines are still far from being capable of thinking or acting like humans. They do, however, offer unique opportunities for teams to enhance security and productivity. Read Now

    A8V MIND

    Hexagon’s Geosystems presents a portable version of its Accur8vision detection system. A rugged all-in-one solution, the A8V MIND (Mobile Intrusion Detection) is designed to provide flexible protection of critical outdoor infrastructure and objects. Hexagon’s Accur8vision is a volumetric detection system that employs LiDAR technology to safeguard entire areas. Whenever it detects movement in a specified zone, it automatically differentiates a threat from a nonthreat, and immediately notifies security staff if necessary. Person detection is carried out within a radius of 80 meters from this device. Connected remotely via a portable computer device, it enables remote surveillance and does not depend on security staff patrolling the area. 3
