Altronix Introduces New Dual-Voltage Access Power Controller with Network Communications
New LINQ8ACM Facilitates Network Monitoring, Reporting and Control
Brooklyn, NY (March 24, 2020) – Altronix, the recognized leader in power and data transmission products for the professional security industry, has introduced the LINQ8ACM Dual-Voltage Access Power Controller with LINQ™ Network Power Management. This new solution facilitates a wide range of locking devices while providing network monitoring, reporting, and control of eight independently controlled fuse or PTC protected access control outputs. For instant on-site verification, the LINQ8ACM is equipped with bi-color LEDs which indicate 12 or 24VDC on each of the 8-outputs.
“With this new addition, Altronix can monitor all powered outputs in an access control system both on the relayed outputs with LINQ8ACM and the distributed outputs with the LINQ8PD. Voltage and Power diagnostics for every lock, panel and peripheral closes the loop on full system monitoring,” said Ronnie Pennington, Director of Sales for the Americas, Altronix Corporation.
The LINQ8ACM distributes power to a variety of access control devices, including magnetic locks and electric strikes, while providing critical diagnostics and management capabilities via its on-board network communications. Additional features include: emergency input trigger enabling egress and alarm monitoring; a disconnect feature that is individually selectable for any or all of the eight outputs; spade connectors to daisy-chain multiple modules for larger system applications; and protection using PTCs or automotive style fuses. The eight trigger inputs isolate power from the access controllers providing further system protection.
When combined with the Altronix VR6 Voltage Regulator, the LINQ8ACM provides the ability to select different voltages for multiple outputs from a single power source. This reduces the requirement and costs for multiple power supplies and batteries, while conserving valuable enclosure space due to its unique stackable design.
The Altronix LINQ8ACM Dual-Voltage Access Power Controller is manufactured in the U.S.A. and backed by a lifetime warranty.
