Specialised Security Products (SSP) has recently added the new WKIT500 wireless access controller to its existing range of access control products, with the controller being made available through distributor Norbain. The WKIT500 includes a compact keypad with proximity reader 135 mm (H) x 54 mm (W) x 19 mm (D), an exit push-button 83 mm (H) x 40 mm (W) x 16 mm (D) and a receiver-relay module 65 mm (L) x 54 mm (W) x 19 mm (D). The keypad and exit button are battery-operated and, due to an ultra-low power consumption, a battery life of up to one year is typical (based on 30 operations per day).
The receiver-relay module needs to be hard-wired to a 12 V DC power supply such as the PSU3A-12(B) to enable operation. The wireless communication function makes it ideal for installations where cables are difficult to run or would be unsightly. The built-in proximity reader offers the convenience of use via proximity cards/fobs in addition to PIN code access via the keypad (four through to eight-digit PINs are allowable).
Up to 500 end users can be enrolled using any mix of PIN codes or EM proximity cards/fobs (125 kHz). Wireless operation is up to 15 metres using the 2.4 GHz frequency.
The relay has COM/NO/NC dry contacts rated at 2 amps maximum. The open time is programmable between 1-99 seconds and can also be set to latch on/off.
Other features include black ABS plastic casings, LED status indicators, easy programming via the keypad and rolling-code encryption which provides a high-level of security.
The WKIT500 is suitable for indoor use only.
