Correctional control systems in a box

ECON Device Controllers are purpose built for correctional control applications. Each controller is a self contained unit that includes its own power supply, logic processor, solid state memory, Ethernet Interface, low level I/O, power switching relays and field wire interface. Each ECON controller operates autonomously from the other controllers, thereby limiting the effects of damage to a single controller. All inputs are optically isolated to prevent damage from lightning or surges. Controllers are available in a rack mountable or panel mountable form factor. All ECON controllers work seamlessly with our CAM software, and our Open Protocol Integration (OPI) platform allows other PLC software to control and monitor ECON controllers.

Card Reader Controller

The ECON Card Reader Controller (CRC) allows integrators to easily incorporate credential based access control into the ECON integrated system. The CRC provides eight inputs for Wiegand 26 bit or 37 bit format credential readers such as prox, mag stripe or biometric. The CRC is available in a 1 RU format that fits easily in open frame or enclosed data racks as well as a panel mount version for use in wall mount enclosures. Both formats allow installers to easily access the wiring connections on both the front and rear panels. The rack mount format also affords installers the use of standard 19? rack wire management hardware.

The CRC provides 8 reader inputs that include control for red LED, green LED, Ground, + out, Data 1, Data 0 and beeper. Like all ECON I/O, the TLC allows users to associate any reader in the system with any output or door.
