The 1700 Controller features a removable SD card with a storage capacity ranging from 128MB to 1GB to keep helpful information handy and to support instant recovery and setup when swapping boards. The SD card can also house a redundant controller configuration, cardholder database, events, maintenance log, wiring diagram, installation manual and more. This intelligent controller supports industry standard reader types and technologies including, FIPS 201(PIV), CAC, Wiegand, card and pin, proximity, biometric, smart card, magnetic stripe and barcode.
Maintenance and firmware updates are accomplished locally, or can be pushed to Terminal Controllers using a web based maintenance port that uses secure AES 256 encryption saving time and money.
Sielox I/O Expansion boards
The Sielox line of 1700 I/O Expansion boards provides a low-cost solution for all input/output (I/O) applications, large and small. Typical applications include elevator control, alarm monitoring, alarm annunciation, and building control. Up to two I/O expansion boards can be connected to each 1700 controller in any combination.
To meet any requirement three boards are available:
- Output Expansion Board with 16 relay outputs
- Input Expansion Board with 16 supervised inputs
- Combination Board with 8 supervised inputs and 8 relay outputs
The Expansion Boards have the same footprint, mounting, relays, connectors and connector pinout as those on the 1700 controller. The boards are backwards compatible with Pinnacle and AnyWare access control software systems, and are modular so integrations can mix and match expansion board types. Socketed relays are used for all outputs and the boards are low cost, not requiring a backplane or power module.
