Access Portal Hardware - IPS Boxed Solutions

Portal Hardware - IPS BOXED SOLUTIONS WITHOUT LCD

The IPS (integrated power supply) boxed solutions bring a new level of simplicity and convenience to installing an access control system, with all the key requirements housed in one secure box.

The powder coated metal housing is fitted with a high-end Meanwell switch mode power supply, and the solution comes pre-wired to ensure a rapid installation.

Another innovation is true plug-and-play hardware, which enables modules to simply clip into each other for an instant power and comms connection, without complex wiring. Each box can house up to four modules, whether Wiegand reader modules, Antenna reader modules or digital I/O modules, coupled with the cluster controller, to provide in case of power failures. The Access Portal Lite solution has the added benefit of a fully embedded web solution, which means no PC or additional software is required. Once wired, the system is configured through a web page making this one of the easiest systems to configure and setup. enhanced flexibility for your specific installation needs. The housing also includes side breakouts, for seamless cable installation, when mounting a bank of boxes, as well as a standard cylinder breakout for the installation of a lock. The boxed solution comes with an optional 7 AH battery to ensure you are always backed up.

Portal Hardware - IPS BOXED SOLUTION WITH LCD

The IPS boxed solution with an LCD screen, makes true “access in a box” a reality. With all the key requirements housed in one secure metal box, deploying an access control solution into a small site has never been easier.

The boxed solution is prewired, making for a quicker installation. The unit includes a Meanwell switch mode power supply as well as fused battery leads, a charging circuit and space for an optional 7AH battery. This ensures that even if there is a loss of power, your access control continues without a problem. Access in a Box is also one of the world’s first to offer APB (anti pass back) door mode for small installations. The system is designed to support up to eight APB doors in a single IPS box and 1,000 tagholders, whilst still offering simple scalability to ensure the solution grows with your needs. A key innovation of Access in a Box, also known as Access Portal Lite, is that there is no requirement for a computer – everything from enrolment, configuration and commissioning can be undertaken through the LCD touch-screen. This can also be done through a web page on any HTML5 compliant device, such as a cellphone, tablet or laptop if you prefer. Other security features include the use of a tamper switch on the box, which will send an alert in the event of it being opened. Flexibility has been achieved through the use of true plug-andplay technology whereby each box can house up to four reader modules, which simply plug into the cluster controller. This gives you enhanced flexibility to build a solution specific to your needs. As all boxed solutions have a fully embedded web solution, the reports can be accessed from anywhere in the world, as long as there is an internet connection to the access control system. Giving you the power to manage your site 24-hours a day, no matter your location. The system also includes an onboard audit trail, for enhanced security

Access Portal Hardware - Plastic Housing

Portal Hardware - PLASTIC HOUSING WITHOUT LCD

The Access Portal cluster controller module brings an unrivalled simplicity to the installation of an access control solution. 

 

True plug-and-play modular hardware means you simply plug in more units to expand your installation. This makes it very easy to adapt the system to suit your changing needs. The clustering concept is also highly cost effective as one cluster controller can manage up to eight reader modules, giving you up to 16 readers from just one controller. 

 

However, the modules don’t have to be plugged together. You can connect using SBus which allows you to connect a module up to 150 metres from the controller – that’s the length of one and a half rugby fields.

 

Another benefit of the cluster controller is the on-board intelligence which allows for full off-line functionality in the event of a power failure and each cluster controller can store up to 100,000 transactions.

 

Security is another important consideration and the cluster controller comes fitted with an anti-tamper switch.

Portal Hardware - PLASTIC HOUSING WITH LCD

With the flick of a dipswitch, the cluster controller can be configured as a complete stand-alone access control system - Access Portal Lite.  The controller contains an embedded web server, and offers up to eight anti-passback doors, or 16 single entry doors. 

 

When selecting a cluster controller in Lite mode, there is no need for additional software or even a computer. The LCD version can be configured and operated through the touch screen, whilst the non-LCD version can be connected to the internet and configured through a browser.  Both units can also be accessed through any HTML5 device, such as a smart phone, tablet or laptop – giving you 24 hour access to your site.

 

World of choice

We understand that most sites are unique, with their own specific installation needs and for this reason, we’ve created a few variants of the cluster controller.  The unit is available with and without a LCD touch-screen, and housed either in plastic or a secure metal IPS enclosure.

 

In addition, the cluster controller comes with a variety of modules, which simply clip together, depending on your application:

 

•  Wiegand reader module

•  Antenna reader module

•  Digital I/O module

Access Portal Hardware - System Components

Portal Hardware - CLUSTER CONTROLLER

The Access Portal cluster controller offers unrivalled simplicity and cost-effectiveness.  True plug-and-play modular hardware means you simply plug units together and all the power and communication cabling is done for you, with just one click.  Need to expand your installation? Simply plug more units together – it’s that quick.

The power of cluster

The ability to plug a number of reader modules into one Access Portal controller is termed ‘clustering’.  This is a highly cost-effective solution as one cluster controller can manage up to eight reader modules and 16 readers – no longer are you constrained to one controller per door.

However, not everyone may want to cluster, so a controller can also be installed in one location and the reader module up to 150 metres away (that’s the length of one and a half football fields).

A world of choice

The cluster controller is available with a touchscreen LCD, which is specifically designed for smaller installations to operate as a stand-alone system (no computer necessary); or without the LCD for sites using a computer or server.

The controller is also available in either a plastic housing, or in a secure metal enclosure for additional security.

Controller features include:

  • Full offline functionality

  • Ability to store up to 100,000 transactions

  • Built-in anti-tamper switch

Portal Hardware - APPLICATION CONTROLLER

The application controller is a powerful addition to our range of products. The device is an open source Linux-based computer that brings powerful computing in a small, sleek unit.

Two variations are available, an Access Portal device and an OEM unit. The Access Portal version is ideal for large installations, especially multi-sites, as the device has the capacity to manage over one million tagholders and 10 million buffered transactions. A single controller is able to manage multiple zones, as well as a host of Access Portal cluster controllers, giving you a high level of flexibility and control. Within larger sites, multiple application controllers are used to effectively ensure distributed control, which removes the risk of a single-point of failure, resulting in enhanced uptime. Security is enhanced as the application controller is an independent device that replaces the traditionally used X86 PC platform. This ensures greater control over the applications installed on the device. As an OEM device, the unit provides developers with the ability to create custom software, such as time and attendance or parking solutions, with high availability and housed within a single unit.The application controller includes an Ethernet port, USB, as well as a RS485 port with automatic line-turnaround to allow for the control of other devices. The full power of Debian 8 Linux is available to application developers through the use of a 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 microprocessor, and comes standard with a Python 2.7 interpreter. Onboard diagnostics are also available and the unit has the capability to undertake remote firmware downloads for greater convenience. An additional feature is that the unit can provide alerts if the device is being tampered with, and is available with a touchscreen LCD.
