The IXP220 Software Suite consists of a set of Software Modules (performing on a client-server basis) used for monitoring and controlling residential, small, medium and large commercial sites. IXP220 is flexible, allowing for easy addition of further ImproX hardware. As well as providing the means to add third-party hardware devices such as biometrics, IXP220 Software provides an easy-to-use graphic user interface for real-time monitoring.
The IXP220 Software controls and monitors the actions of associated ImproX Hardware, therefore controlling and reporting on recorded actions of personnel to a site. The System responds to Tags presented to Readers and controls and monitors the relevant access of the associated Tagholders.
The Software Suite provides a wide array of features, including compilation of Reports showing movement of Tagholders and other System aspects. These features support simple configurations as well as medium-system access control needs. The IXP220’s scalable design allows for single-system users or expanded systems for multiple users in LAN and WAN configurations.
Packaged with your purchase of the IXP220 System is the Software Suite on a CD that includes all Modules. Certain Modules however, need a purchased unlock code to enable them.
The Hardware and Software design lends itself to a system that can cope with any access control and monitoring needs for residential and small to medium, and large commercial installations.

The Impro (IPS) Integrated Power Supply has been developed to decrease installation time and improve system stability. The Impro IPS offers the benefit of a combined, battery backed, Power Supply and Impro Controller or Terminal.
The complete unit comes housed in a powder coated, mild steel cabinet. As the Power Supply is not waterproof, we ask that you install and use the product indoors.
The Power Supply’s construction includes a universal mounting bracket for selected Impro
hardware. Hardware suitable for mounting inside the Power Supply includes the Impro iTT, Impro iTRT, Impro MfT, Impro ECII Controller or IDS500 Controller.
The Impro IPS includes a 3 Amp Switch Mode Power Supply which provides two outputs, both with a voltage of 13.8 V DC. The combined current supply from both outputs may not exceed 2 Amps.
The remaining 1 Amp is used for battery charging and system requirements.
Key Features
• A 3 Amp Switch Mode Power Supply providing 13.8 V DC to charge a 12 V 7Ahr Sealed Lead Acid Battery.
• Nominal output voltage of 13.8 V DC with a fully charged Battery.
• Automatic switch-over to Battery operation on Mains Failure.
• Compact, Mild Steel Cabinet, accommodating the Power Supply, Controller or Terminal and a Sealed Lead Acid Battery.
• Two 13.8 V Power Outputs for powering a Terminal or Controller and, for example, a lock. Together these Outputs have a maximum power output of 2 A (max) continuous at 13.8 V DC.
• Five Quick Click Glands for easy wiring.

IXP Hardware - DOOR CONTROLLERS - IXP 220 & 400 - iTT - Antenna

access control hardware

The Impro (iTT) Intelligent Twin Antenna Terminal is the second generation of the highly successful Impro TT. Using either the RS485 Bus or the RJ45 Ethernet Connection, the Impro iTT works within the Impro range of Access Control Systems, as well as within OEM applications.

The Impro iTT is a low-cost Terminal designed to provide access control to one door in Full Anti-passback Mode (APB) or two doors in Relaxed Anti-passback Mode (APB) or single-entry mode. Impro offer a wide range of Antenna Readers suitable for most installations.

Major memory improvements allow the Impro iTT to store up to 10 000 Transactions as well as providing the added benefit of off-line validation. In this optional mode the Impro iTT allows access to Tags present in the Terminals transaction buffer. This is valuable should communications between the Impro iTT and the Controller disrupt.

A 16-Step Auto-tune process provides improved communication range, letting you install the Terminal up to 25 m (82 ft) from its Non-keypad Antenna Reader and up to 16 m (53 ft) from its Keypad Antenna Readers.

Other new features include a Software Utility that lets you upgrade the Terminal while installed on site with zero down-time. And the iTT now interfaces with various Relay driven lock types (including Strike Locks, Magnetic Door Locks and Deadbolts).
