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.

General Input Controller

The ECON General Input Controller (GIC) allows integrators to quickly and easily incorporate a wide variety of field inputs into an integrated control system. The GIC is an Ethernet based controller that provides 16 sourcing inputs for applications such as monitored only doors, to alarms, or any general system input. The GIC 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 GIC accepts up to 16 inputs and can be configured to require either a N.O. or a N.C. contact for normal state. Each field wire connector includes a constant +24vdc output terminal and an input terminal. Like all ECON I/O, the GIC allows users to associate any input in the system with any output.
