EntroNet Controllers

  • EntroNet Access Control Panels

EntroNet is a powerful IP BACnet access control and alarm management controller. 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.

  • 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

Satellite Modules

  • LEDA 8/8: compact alarm interface unit with up to 24 supervised inputs (CAN applications only), supports CAN and RPI protocols and distributed PIDS applications
  • LEDA 8/3: compact alarm interface unit with 8 physical supervised alarm inputs, 3 relay outputs, supports CAN and RPI protocols

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. Please see the EntroWatch YouTube channel for a wide selection of EntroWatch software installation and set-up videos.
