ZKAccess, a leading provider of biometric and RFID security solutions, is pleased to announce the release of its EC10 Elevator Control Panel, a secure, scalable, and affordable access control solution primarily designed to control floor access.
Floor access can be restricted based on various user credentials, including fingerprint and/or proximity card. Pre-defined time schedules can also be used to control floor access. During normal visitor/business hours, unrestricted floor access can also be permitted (aka Passage mode). The EC10 controls up to 10 individual relays and supports up to three expansion boards (model EX16). Each EX16 expansion board controls up to 16 relays, so a single EC10 can control access for up to 58 total floors. Since the EC10 is IP-based, the user can connect as many EC10 controllers on the network as needed.
While the EC10 was primarily designed for controlling elevator access to floors, there are numerous other access control applications requiring the pairing of a single-reader with multiple relays. Here are just a few examples:
- Storage cabinets with multiple drawers
- School hallways with multiple lockers
- Data centers with multiple server cages
"Our powerful yet easy to use software makes the Elevator Control System very easy to manage,” notes Larry Reed, CEO, ZKAccess. "And, you can connect as many EC10 controllers on the network as needed based on the number of floors you wish to control access on."
