The power supplies are complemented by power distribution boards that can be purchased either factory integrated, or separately for maximum flexibility. The power supplies and distribution options together offer a wide range of solutions that provide reliable power and steadier voltage with interfaces to fire and access control systems. All AccuPower power supplies and boards are RoHS compliant, lead-free.
“AccuPower Power Supplies bring added value to the Securitron brand by extending our offerings, providing our customers with complete power management options,” states Baker. “These products are ideal for use with many access control devices, including electrified locks, card readers and more, offering better solutions for complex access control deployments.”
Energy-Efficient Sustainable Access Control
As part of its commitment to energy-efficient, sustainable access control, ASSA ABLOY’s intelligent Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Wi-Fi access control products operate over a facility’s already existing wired and wireless local area network (LAN), to conserve energy consumption, reduce installation costs and provide additional benefits.
“Whether building a new facility or updating an existing one, every aspect of energy efficiency has to be considered, and that includes the security system,” said Aaron Smith, Director - Sustainable Building Solutions, ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions. “One of the best ways to reduce energy consumption is by integrating the electronic access control system into a company’s IP network, using electronic locks and other devices that are designed for maximum energy efficiency.”
Integrated PoE locks including SARGENT Profile Series v.S1, SARGENT Passport 1000 P1 and Corbin Russwin Access 700® PIP1 combine all access control functionality into the lock and use existing PoE cabling for both power and data. This offers the lowest-possible power consumption – a maximum of 7 watts per lock, which is 50 percent less than typical PoE installations.
Another energy saving option is the use of exit devices with electric latch retraction (ELR) such as the SARGENT 56-ELR device. Since the 56-ELR is driven by a motor instead of a conventional solenoid, electricity savings per activation can be better than 50 percent.
ASSA ABLOY Wi-Fi locks and exit devices like the SARGENT Profile Series v.S2, Corbin Russwin Access 800® WI1 and others reduce installation time by operating within an existing Wi-Fi network, and make it possible to provide expanded access control in locations where it would be difficult or impossible to install a wired lock. They are designed for efficient power consumption and long battery life.
