New Galaxy Control Systems Remote Access Reader Sets New Benchmark in Polling Speed

Galaxy Control Systems is featuring its new RS485 Remote Readers with Turbo485 polling speed here at ASIS 2014. Unlike conventional RS485 access control readers, the new solution from Galaxy with Turbo485 delivers data polling speeds up to 10X greater than conventional 485 readers.

“Although RS485 is considered legacy at this point in time, there are thousands upon thousands of facilities around the world that still rely on this infrastructure. Our new RS485 Remote Readers with Turbo485 data polling speeds allow these facilities to install state of the art access control solutions without having to rip and replace existing infrastructure,” said Robert Laughlin, president, Galaxy Control Systems. “The cost savings, scalability and incredible speed provided by our RS485 Remote Readers with Turbo485 are truly unprecedented.”

Facilities with RS485 field wiring architecture can connect Galaxy Control’s RS485 Remote Readers at door locations to the company’s Dual Serial Interface (DSI) and eliminate the need to run additional cable from field access devices to a centralized controller. All field terminations can be done in close proximity to each of the door locations. RS485 Remote Readers are selectable for one or two readers and can connect a single door with a single reader, a single door with dual in/out readers for anti-passback, or two doors each with single readers.

Over 4000 access control readers can be accommodated in a single system with Galaxy Control’s new RS485 Remote Access Readers using multi DSI controllers or via home run connections – or any combination of both.

For added versatility and value, RS485 Remote Readers with Turbo485 polling speeds accommodate up to 16 contact closures via 16 independent inputs. This allows the access control system architecture to also facilitate alarm devices and functionality such as Fail Safe operation to unlock doors if a fire alarm is activated.
