ICP Electronics Australia has released the ACT-408A, an 8” Panel PC designed for access control and security applications.
The ACT-408A belongs to IEIs ACT series of Panel PCs with built-in RFID readers. It is a touch control system with dual EM and MIFARE reading capabilities and features an Intel Atom N270 processor for higher performance computing capabilities with ultra-low fanless support.
The ACT-408A Panel PCs include 802.11 b/g wireless connection and a Wiegand communications bus interface allowing physical entry control via a standard Wiegand 26 protocol via the slave reader. This makes the ACT-408A Panel PCs suitable for controlling and monitoring large entrances and exits. It also includes the IEI One Key Recovery software which creates a full system backup on demand and allows recovery from system failure by restoring the system from a previous backup.
The 8" TFT touch color screen boasts a full interface display, allowing for all operations to be managed directly using the touch screen only. Other features include a built-in open door relay, alarm relay and exit button input, a tamper detection function, built-in 3W speaker & microphone for bi-directional voice communications or voice messages, a 300K pixel web-camera for real-time image/video access and capture or facial recognition.
These Panel PCs can be matched with almost any access controller on the market and are IP64 rated (water & dust resistant) which makes them ideal for harsh environments.
