LifeSafety Power continues to show its leadership in the intelligent networked power category, unveiling the NetLink NLX Network Communication Module, a remote monitoring device engineered to handle enterprise applications and specifications which require large numbers of network-managed outputs.

NLX Network Communication

Expanding the NetLink family, NLX is the next generation of network communications from LifeSafety Power, offering eight Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) ports instead of four in the NL4 – allowing users to connect up to eight local devices.

NLX also adds RS-485 communication which is compatible with Generation 2 FPO and M8 boards with the optional RS-485 module installed. This allows connection of up to 16 additional remote devices across the enterprise for a total of 24 devices - up to 192 managed outputs – all from a single network drop.

Reduced network drops, hardware for remote monitoring

NetLink is designed for users to monitor, control, program and report on system power and connected devices

Designed for increasingly larger networked systems now common in access control and physical security integrations, NLX reduces network drops, wiring and hardware required for remote monitoring. Previously, multiple power enclosures each required separate network drops. With NLX, multiple power enclosures can run off a single network drop and installers achieve field cost-savings while increasing the capacity to remotely monitor additional locks and other devices.

NetLink is designed for users to monitor, control, program and report on system power and connected devices. It features patented battery management that includes health reporting, remote battery testing, email/SNMP alerts and other proactive notifications.

Physical security and access control solutions

LifeSafety Power is a consummate innovator and specialist in physical security and access control, creating a new category of intelligent networking power solutions that monitor and manage system connectivity across the enterprise.

Embracing technology collaboration with some of the most recognisable companies in the industry, LifeSafety Power has carved a unique niche and along the way received numerous awards for its innovation, including Security Industry Association New Product of the Year; Security Today New Product of the Year; Most Valuable Product; and many others. LifeSafety Power was acquired by ASSA ABLOY in September 2019.
