Long Description

Use TCP/IP and the system is virtually unlimited. Simply add a TX3-IP module to the panel for TCP/IP networks. The TX3-CX-2K-A Kit comes complete with one TX3-CX controller, two TX3-P300-HA readers, a configurator software on a flash memory stick and a USB cable for programming.

TX3-CX-2-A Door Controller

The TX3-CX-2-A controller has a unique feature of being compatible to the entire family of TX3 platform solutions from voice entry, elevator restriction and wireless Aperio locksets. Unlike other platforms, the TX3 will meet the basic job requirements and accomodate other elements of an intelligent building as the needs arises.

TX3-P300-HA Proximity Reader

The access control kit includes two TX3-P300-HA proximity card readers that deliver exceptional value without compromise on quality, durability, and performance. The TX3-P300-HA proximity card reader comes in an attractive, slim line dark grey enclosure. The reader may be mounted on a metal door frame, a window mullion or directly to an interior or exterior wall or cabinet.

The electronics of the TX3-P300-HA reader are encapsulated in a UL approved epoxy resin potting compound to seal them against adverse environmental conditions. The TX3-P300-HA proximity card readers are metal compensated, resulting in minimal loss of read range and provide ease of installation in various door access applications.

Feature & Benefits

  • A hybrid architecture that combines the best of TCP/IP and RS-485. All panels can networked via RS-485 or TCP/IP
  • 8 supervised inputs for a wide selection of monitoring points to be shared between the two card readers
  • 8 programmable outputs; 6 are Form C contacts (normally open/normally closed), two provide 12 VDC power for up to 1 amperes of current combined
  • Supports all credential formats such as clamshell cards, graphic cards, key tags and wafers (ordered separately)
  • Optional vehicular control using dual technology wireless transmitters that can have a built-in proximity coil (wafer)
  • Unified database for TX3 voice entry and card access systems reduces administration time and support
  • A variety of options to remotely manage the TX3 access panel to fit the site requirements. A modem, a TCP/IP module or use a local USB extender to a PC
  • High level features include:

    • High Security
      A convenient feature enabling the user to perform ‘emergency lock down’ or ‘emergency evacuation’ by swiping an ID card four times in front of a reader to lock or unlock all doors
    • Soft Anti-Pass Back
      This function prevents the buddy system by requiring the user to use an exit reader before using an entry reader up to 900 seconds.
    • Mantrap/Interlocking Doors
      This feature monitors and controls access to a high value or critical security area by ensuring one door is locked before opening the second door
    • Delayed Egress
      This feature requires a user to press and hold a request to exit bar/button before releasing the door enabling security to respond before releasing the door
  • Compatible to any Wiegand reader technology including Mifare, biometric, proximity and iClass
  • Elevator Control for up to 96 floors to restrict users to specific floors
  • Add up to 7500 credential for each controller
  • Email alerts for any online event
  • Offline/online panel detection
  • Auto scheduled backup jobs
