EntroNet is a powerful IP BACnet door access controller and alarm management system. A single EntroNet can manage from 2-8 doors. EntroNet is fully integrated with EntroWatch access control management software, EntroPad card readers and can be run on the same IP and security network with EntroStar access control panels.
Multiple EntroNet controllers can be installed on the same IP network and managed through the EntroWatch software up to a maximum of 100 units (800 doors).
The EntroNet controller is an intelligent field device which incorporates an independent two door controller capable of making access control decisions without reference to EntroWatch. The unit is able to store alarm and access events in the case of interrupted communications to the EntroWatch server thereby ensuring system integrity.
When powered up out of the box, the EntroNet controller will automatically assume a default configuration and function as a basic access control unit. Changes to the default configuration can be made via EntroWatch.
The EntroNet backplane is housed in a lockable metal enclosure (with optional power supply unit and battery) and the backplane features a tamper switch. Each backplane can accommodate 2-4 processor cards with the first slot containing card guides for the EntroNet Access Control Processor (ACP II) which provides for:
256,000 access control cards
128,000 locally time stamped events
4,096 access permissions
Up to 8 doors per controller
Up to 3 TDEM II or IOM II plug-in modules or LEDA satellite modules
Other Plug-in modules
TDEM II: two door expansion units with entry/exit readers, fall-back mode intelligence, airlock/turnstile support and multiple reader technology
IOM II: compact alarm interface units with 24 supervised alarm inputs and 8 relay outputs
EntroWatch Software Management
EntroNet is designed for use with the EntroWatch software management package and EntroPad readers. EntroWatch can manage a combination of EntroNet and EntroStar access control panels to provide for complete building door management and control.
