Delivers Superior Performance and Cost-Efficiency for New and Legacy Systems

Chicago, IL – Galaxy Control Systems, a leading manufacturer of integrated access control, video and security solutions, is presenting their comprehensive line of innovative solutions at this year's ASIS show. Featured introductions include new Systems Galaxy Software and a new dual serial interface that deliver innovative features and integration for new and legacy access control systems while protecting users' investments in existing hardware and infrastructure.

"Satisfying the needs of customers with superior performance, support and cost efficiency has always been our first priority. This philosophy drives our business model and has been the foundation of our success for over 30 years," said Robert Laughlin, President, Galaxy Control Systems. "Our latest introductions here at ASIS 2013 have been engineered with customers' past, present and future needs in mind so that we can most effectively meet both their technical and financial objectives."

Leading the new products being introduced at ASIS is Galaxy's System Galaxy Software (v.10.3). The new software, which features a wide range of innovative capabilities, is backwards-compatible and interfaces with legacy Galaxy systems. System Galaxy Software enables users to add the latest functionality available while maintaining their existing investment in access control infrastructure, and without having to rip and replace entire systems.

Additional enhancements to System Galaxy Software include active directory support to enable real-time identity management, individualized identity-based door access, enhanced reporting and data sharing with other systems. Application-specific features include one-minute door open schedules plus 100 additional day types. The system can incorporate unlimited users and is accessible from mobile web browsers.

Galaxy is also introducing the 635 Dual Serial Interface (DSI) for their 600 series Access Control Panel. Engineered to improve third party integration, enhance user convenience and ensure interoperability with a multitude of manufacturers' current and legacy hardware, the new DSI board is another example of Galaxy's commitment to their customers.

The 635 DSI supports wireless reader technology, relay controls, LCD displays and Galaxy 485 Remote DPI modules, with added support for multidrops and more power connections.

For government applications, Galaxy is also featuring their CAC Enrollment Solution, which captures information from the Common Access Card (CAC). Galaxy offers support for PIV I, PIV II, TWIC and CAC (Legacy, Transition and Endpoint) cards, along with FIPS 201-compliant controllers configured to accept data formats from 18 to 256 bits, providing unprecedented versatility within the PIV II specification.
