Vanderbilt, a provider of state-of-the-art security systems, has announced the availability of a new SPC Enhanced E-BUS Gateway to facilitate a cost effective migration strategy for Sintony customers. This provides Sintony users the ability to enjoy all of the advantages of the latest security technology provided in the SPC range of products, without needing to finance an entirely new infrastructure.
Easy migration options
Migrating from Sintony to the more sophisticated SPC range is now an option, as the SPC Enhanced E-BUS Gateway provides an interface between SPC X-BUS and Sintony E-BUS. Now Sintony devices (existing power supply units, transponders and keypads) are recognised by SPC controllers. End users can maintain their existing infrastructure and take advantage of SPC’s powerful intrusion control functionality.
"The SPC Enhanced E-BUS Gateway is an exciting new development for the industry’s most innovative intrusion
Compact and flexible with a slim form factor, the SPC Enhanced E-BUS Gateway has been designed so that a variety of installation options can be supported. Initial system set-up is simple and can be carried out via the SPC Web Browser, while system configuration involves standard SPC installer tools.
Enhanced detection with BUS solution
Once set-up is complete, the SPC Enhanced E-BUS Gateway maps devices so that the SPC system controller can identify them. In addition, through the new SPC controller firmware, each Vanderbilt MAGIC detector is mapped as a virtual two zone expander, allowing an increased number of detectors on the SPC system. It also facilitates ‘daisy-chain’ networks in which multiple detectors can be wired together in spur or in a ring, allowing up to 56 MAGIC motion detectors per SPC panel to be supported. This detector based BUS solution further enhances the ability for end users to take advantage of industry leading performance and false alarm immunity.
“The SPC Enhanced E-BUS Gateway is an exciting new development for the industry’s most innovative intrusion product range – one that has obtained more approvals than any other system,” commented Andreas Straubinger, DACH Market Manager at Vanderbilt. “The introduction of this device enables communication between the SPC controller and a wide range of peripherals, allowing end users to mix and match SPC X-BUS and E-BUS devices to form a hybrid network, which is managed by SPC. Just as importantly, it means that existing devices and peripherals can be utilised within an SPC solution, saving time and money.”
