The PW-Series Modular Control System is an advanced access control hardware architecture capable of providing solutions for large enterprise applications. The Intelligent Controller (PW5K1IC, PW6K1IC or PW3K1IC) provides power and flexibility with its 32-bit architecture, TCP/IP support, flash memory, large local cardholder database, and large reader and I/O module support.
The Intelligent Controller is designed to operate off-line, making access control decisions independently from a PC or other controlling device. It can also be connected to a host computer for system configuration, alarm monitoring and direct control.
Connectivity to the host computer is accomplished via direct serial communication (RS232 or RS485), dial-up modem, or TCP/IP network connection. The PW-6000 has Ethernet directly embedded and will support a second Ethernet connection.
