In this month's electronics column, Ledger contributing editor Tim O'Leary writes about some the newest electronics products to catch his eye: the Altronix HubWay™, Altronix StrikeIt™, ISONAS IP Proximity Reader Controllers and Locknetics 672 REX TouchBar. Information is also included on a new series of keypads from Alarm Lock.
For additional new products, see the ASIS Product Spotlight, pages 52-56. In addition, a special pull-out chart on keypads and readers follows this article.
The new HubWay™ Video/Data/Power Product Series from Altronix offers a simple way to lower the cost of installations by providing centralized UTP video, data control protocols and distributed camera power over a single structured cable, eliminating the need to utilize expensive coaxial cable and additional wiring.
The HubWay2 provides centralized UTP video, RS422/RS-S485 data and distributed camera power over a single CAT-5 or higher cable for distances up to 1000 feet to help simplify CCTV installations. Additionally, the HubWay2 package includes eight video baluns for consolidation/breakout of the video, data and power over the CAT-5 twisted pair cable.
The HubWay2 provides eight individually selectable 24/28VAC power outlets, each configurable for AC and/or DC cameras when used with the AC (HubWayA) or DC (HubWayD) video balun combiners. This design allows the video, data and power to each camera to be customized with regard to its particular specification and set up.
The unit has an 8 amp total output current (1 amp max. per channel) and all outputs are fuse protected. An illuminated master power disconnect circuit breaker with manual reset and individual power LED indicators are also incorporated into the design. The HubWay2 is enclosed in a modular 2U standard EIA 19" rack mount chassis and features removable terminal blocks with locking screw flanges for easier maintenance.

Alarm Lock A-Series Keypads
Alarm Lock Systems, Inc. introduces a family of keypads designed to control access of a single entry point for facilities with up to 150 users. Each user is assigned personal identification number which can be three to six digits long. Audible feedback verifies each key press.
All programming is easily accomplished from the keypad, eliminating the need for additional software packages. The non-volatile EEPROM memory retains all programmed entry codes.
Each keypad operates up to three outputs (two relays and one open-collector) and can be used to trigger a door strike, an electromagnetic door lock, or any other relay-activated device. Outputs #1 and #2 are Form C relay contacts. Output #3 is an open collector transistor.
Authorized door open time can be programmed for any duration from 1 to 99 seconds.
