New Altronix Dual Voltage Access Power Controller Reduces Costs and Saves Valuable Enclosure Space

Altronix, the recognized leader in power and data transmission solutions for the professional security industry, is showcasing a unique access power controller here at ISC West 2018 (booth #11073) which allows you to deploy two locking devices or readers with different power requirements simultaneously.

The ACMS8 Dual-Voltage Access Power Controller, stacks together with Altronix’s VR6 Voltage Regulator to distribute 12VDC or 24VDC from a single 24VDC power source over each of the unit’s individually selectable eight outputs, reducing the cost of multiple power supplies at access locations with multiple devices. The ACMS8 can also be used standalone with two individual power supplies when more power per output is required.

“The ACMS8 delivers power to multiple access control devices from a single source, eliminating the cost of additional equipment and their related installation expenses,” said Ronnie Pennington, National Sales Engineer, Altronix Corporation. “In addition, the ACMS8 allows installers to distribute more power over multiple outputs while maximizing valuable enclosure space.”

The ACMS8 can provide power to a variety of access control devices, including magnetic locks, electric strikes and magnetic door holders. The unit’s emergency input trigger enables egress and alarm monitoring. The disconnect feature is individually selectable for any or all of the eight outputs. Spade connectors allow installers to daisy chain multiple ACMS8 modules for larger system applications. All outputs on the ACMS8 are fused protected and also available with PTC protected outputs, model ACMS8CB.

As with all Altronix products, the ACMS8 Multi-Output Access Power Controller is manufactured in the U.S.A., and is backed by a lifetime warranty.

    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
