The PW-Series Modular Control System is an advanced access
control hardware architecture capable of providing solutions for
large enterprise applications. The Intelligent Controller (PW6K1IC,
PW3K1IC or PW6K1ICE) provides power and flexibility with its
32-bit architecture, TCP/IP support, flash memory, large local
cardholder database, and large reader and I/O module support.
The Intelligent Controller is designed to operate off-line, making
access control decisions independently from a PC or other
controlling device. It can also be connected to a host computer
for system configuration, alarm monitoring and direct control.
Connectivity to the host computer is accomplished via direct
serial communication (RS232 or RS485), dial-up modem, or
TCP/IP network connection. The PW-6000 has Ethernet directly
embedded and will support a second Ethernet connection.
The PW6K1IC Intelligent Controllers support any combination of
up to 32 I/O or reader boards (16 for the PW3K1IC) to monitor
alarm input points, relay output points and access control reader
interfaces. By offering a modular design, the system can be
tailored to meet a wide range of applications, while optimizing
cost and mounting space.
The PW-6000 will support up to 300,000 cards and 50,000
transactions. The PW-6101 will support up to 240,000 cards
and 50,000 transactions. The PW-3000 Intelligent Controller
accommodates a card database of 7,800 cards and a standard
transaction buffer of 5,000 transactions.
The PW-Series access modules have been designed to
accommodate various mounting options. Units can be wall
mounted in a high density configuration (PW5K2ENC1) when
space is limited, a 19" rack configuration (PW5K2ENC2), or
in a tile mount configuration (PW5K1ENC3). The PW-6000
controller utilizes a built-in Web server to configure the hardware
attributes of the controller.
