Secura Key’s new white paper on its NOVA.16 access control panel, “Secura Key’s NOVA.16—Something New for Small Systems,” explains the new system architecture and how it lowers installation, hardware and expansion costs, and also explaining the technology behind the product. The white paper describes the new system configuration, the more efficient distribution of processing power, how the product was developed, and why RS485 communications were selected over other alternatives. It also details backward compatibility and retrofit scenarios. These white papers are useful to systems integrators, OEMs, and Application Developers in both the Security and RFID channels. They are written for an executive level audience.
Secura Key now offers updated sample architects and engineers specifications for its SK-NET Software and two new access control panels: the SK-ACPE-LE, an upgraded version of the SK-ACP 2-door panel; and the NOVA.16, a new 16-door access control panel. These specifications are available on the Secura Key website in MS Word document format, allowing users to them cut and paste them into the standard AIA specification template. Architects and engineers specifications make it easier for consultants and system integrators, to create and/or respond to complex bid specifications and RFQ’s, saving the time required to reformat information from product data sheets.
The number of agile working organizations is increasing rapidly and so is the question for secure storage for peoples’ personal belongings. In response to this, Nedap has integrated Locker Management into the 3.1.1 release of its AEOS Security Management Platform. Employees, visitors and contractors can now use their access cards to access lockers, filing cabinets, laptop lockers or post boxes. The straightforward user interface increases the usability of the system and it reduces the risk that user errors occur. This way, Nedap made access control at micro level accessible to everyone, while offering the flexibility, cost effectiveness and ease of use which is so familiar to AEOS users.

DNA Fusion v6.1 users can now implement persistent access groups to simplify access assignment across multiple controllers. Users can also take advantage of biometric technology with enrollment to the Suprema line of readers through DNA Fusion. Version 6.1 features a new VMS integration with March Networks including live and archived video, PTZ control, and scanning for cameras.
Automatic Systems’ speed gates are BIS (Biometric Identification Systems) compatible, allowing for seamless identification and access. By seamlessly integrating biometric authentication technology into the SlimLane speed gates, users do not need to stop or carry badges, therefore increasing throughput rate. BIS readers and lights are installed inside SlimLane and work via software or dry contacts. Users are pre-enrolled with biometrics and validated as they approach the gates. SlimLane opens automatically when authorized individuals walk through. In cases of attempted fraud or tailgating an alarm is generated.
Von Duprin’s concealed vertical cable (CVC) exit devices, which install in minutes, have been tested to have a design rating of +/- 75 pounds per square foot with a large missile impact, thus meeting the Florida Building Code requirements for hurricane wind protection. Instead of installing and adjusting vertical rods, the flexible cable latching system is inserted and secured into the door before the exit device is mounted. Once the latches are secured in the top and bottom of the door, the exit device is attached to the center slide of cable system. Only one point of adjustment is required.
Rutherford Controls (DORMA Group) now has a 0563 ½" Rim Strike. The slim, adjustable design of this new strike makes it a good solution for tight-fitting installations. This strong, durable surface mounted (no frame cutting required) strike is designed to work will Pullman latch rim exit devices and most door frame materials. A low-energy, auto-sensing (0.01A,12-24VDC) strike, the 0563 runs cool in use. It includes two 1/8" spacers to create two additional sizes, 5/8" and 3/4". The strike is made of high-grade stainless steel.
Delta’s new HD300 barrier, available with either a fully electric or hydraulic control unit, will stop a 15,000 pound (66.7 Km) vehicle traveling 50 mph (80 kpm). Upon impact, the barrier remains in its foundation and the opening stays blocked, providing a multiple hit capability. In its M50 crash test, the HD300 completely disabled the test vehicle, causing severe damage to the occupant department and power train. The P1 penetration rating was given because the penetration beyond the protected side of the barrier was less than 1.0 m at the lower leading edge of the test vehicle’s cargo bed.

Honeywell’s WIN-PAK integrated security system software allows integrators to more-easily create a connected business environment to meet a broad spectrum of user needs, ranging from entry level to large, multi-location applications. The three versions of WIN-PAK 4.0 (WIN-PAK XE, SE and PE) accommodate a range of needs, from access control only to a fully integrated security system, depending on a user’s requirements. Honeywell has also expanded its portfolio with two releases that complement the WIN-PAK 4.0 software suite: the new Software Maintenance Upgrade (SMU) program and the PRO3200 access control panel.
