The EverFocus EFC-02-1A is designed for security applications that use a card reader system as a means of electronically controlling access to an area. This controller acts as the interface between the card reader and the door strike mechanism, neither of which are included with this controller. When a person swipes their card through the card reader, information about that card is sent to the controller. The controller analyzes this information to determine whether this card is valid or invalid and on this basis grants or denies access to that person. If entry is granted, the controller sends a signal through the door module to engage the door strike mechanism and unlock the door.
Information from up to 9,999 cards can be stored in this controller. This controller can also store up to 16,000 events. Events can be anything from alarms sent by cameras, fire alarms, invalid cards, expired cards, unauthorized swipes or if a door is being held open longer than a pre-specified time.
This controller ships with 1 door module, and accepts a total of 4 door modules. Each door module can communicate with 2 card readers and 2 doors. This means that with 4 door modules installed, this controller can be used to control a total of 8 card readers and 8 doors.
While this controller can be used on its own, attaching it to a computer will provide users with additional features and more flexibility. This controller is bundled with the EverAccess Flex Series software.
