Secura Key’s new NOVA.16 multi-reader access control panel, based on a powerful 32-bit RISC processor, provides a major technology upgrade to Secura Key’s legacy SK-NET™ system.
The NOVA.16 introduces a new more efficient architecture for the SK-NET™ system. Each panel connects to the local area network using its built-in Ethernet connection, and it also connects to a high speed, RS485 peripheral network which supports up to 16 Smart Readers, each controlling a single door or gate. (NOVA.16’s can also be interconnected using the RS-485 Command Bus). The Peripheral Network can extend up to 4000 feet away from the controller. The NOVA.16’s RS-485 communications lines are protected with gas discharge tube surge suppressors, which helps keep systems running in areas with extreme weather conditions and power problems. By reducing the number of control panels required for multidoor systems, plus the associated cost of providing electrical outlets, space and power supplies for those panels, the NOVA.16 provides a huge savings in installation time and cost. The NOVA.16 boasts a 3-Amp heavy-duty power supply with power line noise filtering and resettable thermal fuses. It continually monitors backup battery status. Communications speeds and transaction storage capacity have more than doubled over previous controller models.
SK-WIO-1 Wiegand Interface is designed to connect Wiegand output devices, such as long range card readers (RK-WL), keypads (SK-KPM/S) and biometric readers and non-Secura Key readers to the Peripheral Bus of Secura Key’s NOVA.16 Access Control Panel. (It will also work in any system using Secura Key’s SR Protocol over an RS-485 bus.) It receives data and power from the NOVA.16 panel, and has all the input and output connections for a controlled door or gate, including a Wiegand Input, latch and aux relay outputs, and two “alarm” inputs (for REX, Door Monitor, etc.)
SK-NET™ Access Control Software is an easy-to-use Windows®-based program for managing SK-ACPE or NOVA.16 control panels. The SK-NET-DM basic software controls up to 200 doors using RS-485, and it also allows a single TCP/ IP connection. SK-NET™-MLD Multi-Location Software is required for dial-up modem use or multiple TCP/IP connections, and allows an unlimited number of locations or Secura Key panels to be connected via TCP/IP. SK-NET-MLD features fully integrated ID badging software.
ACCESS CONTROL KITS
Secura Key offers SK-NET™ with NOVA.16 control panels in a variety of specially-priced 4-door access control kits, which include the SK-NET basic software and manual, a NOVA.16-LE control panel, a power supply, and four smart readers. The NOVA.16 4-Door Kits feature either e*Tag® contactless smart card technology, or Radio Key® proximity technology. The kits include everything you need to control access to four doors except for cabling and door locking devices.
