Kantech, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, introduces the ioPass SA-550 stand-alone door controller for use in small security applications. Ideal for convenience stores, storage rooms or parking lots, the ioPass SA-550 brings the reader and controller together in an easy-to-use software free solution.
Designed as a self-contained, stand-alone unit, the ioPass SA-550 is the perfect complement to Kantech’s existing line of access control solutions, addressing the need for a simple, effective and intuitive tool that can be deployed by growing businesses.
“As a basic, stand-alone solution, the ioPass SA-550 is convenient and easy-to-use,” said Scott McNulty, senior product manager, Kantech. “The combined reader/controller design makes it an affordable choice considering both installation and equipment costs.”
The ioPass SA-550 offers an integrated 26-bit Wiegand ioProx proximity card reader that can store up to 1,000 users. For ease of installation, the unit is programmed directly from the keypad, with all commands displayed on a 16-character, 2-line LCD. The ioPass SA-550 supports up to eight door configurations, with flexible options such as door access schedules and unlock schedules. The configuration data is transferrable to other SA-550 door controllers via a USB key.
Other features of the ioPass SA-550 stand-alone door controller include an audit trail for the last 3,500 transactions with a time stamp, a six-language selectable user interface, the ability to program 24 recurring holidays and 24 non-recurring holidays per controller, and four door access schedules and one door unlock schedule per controller.
