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.

Universal Gate Controller

The ECON Universal Gate Controller (UGC) allows integrators to incorporate control for all types of vehicular gates commonly found at correctional facilities including: overhead coiling gates, sliding gates, and swing arm gates. The UGC 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 UGC controls up to 6 gates and includes an input for each gate for status monitoring. Each field wire connector includes a terminal for the gate operator voltage input, a N.C. terminal for stop, and N.O. terminals for open (raise) and close (lower). It also includes a +24 vdc output and a status input for monitoring. Like all ECON I/O, the UGC allows users to associate any input in the system with any output.
