Sielox 2700 Access Controller

Sielox Access Controllers

Built upon the Sielox access control innovation legacy of more than 45 years, the 2700 is an intelligent, fully distributed controller ensuring decisions even if communications have been interrupted. Incorporating a secure embedded Linux OS with secure real-time operations, the 2700 Controller provides the ultimate in speed, performance and reliability ensuring long term investment protection.

This 2700 platform is the same size as the 1700 Controller and continues the one controller for any application using RS-485 communication, controlling up to 34 doors (2 hardwired / 32 wireless) and is expandable up to 60 Inputs / Outputs. Key features include OSDP compatibility, variable input power of 12-24 VDC, auto-sensing 12 VDC Aux Power output (1A max), and a reader local buzzer for held open or forced conditions. The familiar web interface has been enhanced for configuration, diagnostics, and troubleshooting.

The 2700 is a true IP solution with data transfer rates up to 100 mbps to the on-board processor and can be connected directly to a network, saving companies money on both wiring and installation costs. With connectivity to Allegion Schlage and Von Duprin or ASSA ABLOY Aperio wireless locks, up to 34 doors can be controlled from a single 2700 controller.

Advanced features for wireless locks include Two-Man Rule and Lock Toggle and the 2700 controller can also push Allegion ONR (Over Network Reprograming) remote firmware updates of locks, gateways, PIMs. The 2700 features high capacity memory storage of 32GB housing redundant controller configuration, cardholder database, events, and maintenance logs, wiring diagrams, installation manual and more. This feature enables quick installation startup and rapid instantaneous controller configuration recovery reducing downtime and lengthy downloads.

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 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 four I/O expansion boards can be connected to each 2700 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 2700 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.
