|Altronix highlights its new LINQ network communication and control solution at the event
Altronix Corporation, the recognised leader in power and transmission solutions for the professional security industry, is showcasing a number of new and innovative products and solutions at Intersec 2016. Among the highlights is the company’s new LINQ™ Technology, which fills the void in network communications for mission-critical power distribution applications by providing remote control of power, along with monitoring and reporting of diagnostics.
“Intersec provides Altronix with the opportunity to gain exposure and broaden its presence in global markets,” said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corporation. “Our recently introduced power and transmission products interface with trending and emerging surveillance and access technologies from the leading equipment suppliers in the professional security industry.”
LINQ communication technology
Altronix’s innovative LINQ™ Communication Technology allows users to monitor, control and report power from anywhere. Multiple products at multiple sites can be easily integrated and managed remotely. LINQ also monitors diagnostics and reports via Email/SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).
The powerful LINQ Dashboard is designed to work with all LINQ enabled products, as well as the company’s eBridge™ Ethernet over Coax Solutions, NetWay™ Managed Midspans and FireSwitch™ NAC Power Extenders that provide web-based management, and also allow access to third party web-based solutions.
LINQ8PD network power distribution module
The new Altronix LINQ8PD network power distribution module facilitates remote control and monitoring of diagnostics with alerts via email or SNMP to help minimise system downtime, and eliminate unnecessary service calls. LINQ8PD allows users to upgrade, control and communicate with up to two low voltage AC or DC power supply/chargers from virtually any manufacturer, and is designed to retrofit with both new and currently installed units. When utilising two power supplies, output voltage is individually selectable for each of the LINQ8PD’s eight outputs.
LINQ2 network communication module
The LINQ2 network communication module is designed specifically for Altronix’s new enhanced eFlow™ power supply series and provides the same functionality as the LINQ8PD.
Altronix also offers custom Application Program Interfaces (API) to easily integrate its LINQ Technology into third party software platforms, providing a single communication and management portal. With LINQ technology, early intervention, system service and preventative maintenance can be handled more expediently with a higher degree of accuracy-increasing overall security. Integrators can utilise LINQ technology to expand their service offering as an additional source of Recurring Monthly Revenue (RMR).
“Our recently introduced power and transmission products interface with trending and emerging surveillance and access technologies from the leading equipment suppliers in the professional security industry”, says Alan Forman, President, Altronix
Trove access and power integration enclosure systems
Trove™ access and power integration enclosure systems easily integrates Altronix power with access controllers and accessories from the industry’s leading manufacturers and simplifies board layout and wire management, greatly reducing installation and labor costs. Trove backplanes are available to accommodate various combinations of Mercury or Vertx boards with or without Altronix power supplies and accessories. All Trove units are UL listed and include a cam lock, tamper switch and mounting hardware.
The eBridge100ST is the latest addition to the company’s popular eBridge Ethernet over Coax (EoC) eBridge™ family of products that provide a cost-effective means to upgrade and expand security and surveillance systems using existing coax to support PoE/PoE+. The new eBridge100ST is capable of transmitting Ethernet over Coax up to 300 meters at 100Mbps without repeaters. These transceivers are designed to fit in a single gang box, and are compatible with eBridge multi-port receivers.
Entrada2DMK IP Access FACP adapter
The Entrada2DMK IP Access FACP Adapter provides a supervised fire alarm interface, enabling network door controllers to release locking devices in a fire alarm condition while maintaining PoE to network door controllers and readers.
The Entrada2DMK kit includes one Entrada2DMR receiver and an Entrada2DMT transmitter. These PoE+ compliant adapters route PoE to the network access controllers and provide selectable 12VDC or 24VDC power output for up to two strikes or magnetic locks. A single FACP connection links multiple Entrada units to accommodate network door controllers. Additional features include built-in overload protection and electronically filtered and regulated outputs. Entrada2DMK is compatible with edge network door controllers such as the AXIS 1001, as well as other manufacturers.
WayPoint outdoor power supplies
Altronix’s UL listed WayPoint outdoor power supplies are extremely versatile multi-output units that are ideal for all outdoor applications. WayPoint provides a robust power solution for PTZ and fixed cameras, heater/blower housings, IR illuminators and virtually any surveillance or security product that’s exposed to the elements. They’re designed for the harshest environments with IP66 NEMA4/4X rated enclosures, stainless steel lockable latches, and integral flanges to accommodate wall or pole mounting. A wide range of models in single or multi output are available providing 12VDC, 24VAC and/or 28VAC. The PMK1 Pole Mount Kit simplifies installation of WayPoint and other Altronix outdoor-rated power supplies and accessories housed in Altronix outdoor enclosures.
Pace long range Ethernet adapters
Altronix’s Pace™ long range Ethernet adapters include receivers with one, 4, 8 and 16 ports, and full duplex 100Mpbs at distances up to 500m over CAT5e without repeaters. With single twisted pair (UTP) cabling, distances of up to 150m can be achieved – that’s 50% greater than standard Ethernet. Pace Long Range Ethernet Adapters are PoE and PoE+ compliant.
