Leading manufacturers of access control systems are implementing the new communication standard OSDP for the connection between the reader and the door control module. There are many good reasons to use OSDP for access control. Bidirectional communication offers greater security, new possibilities and functions. LEDs and IO’s on the reader are controlled directly via the OSDP bus and ensuring cost-optimized cabling. Only four wires are required for communication and power supply. If the reader provides a tamper detection function, manipulation attempts can be detected.
An access reader with keypad can be connected to the NOX CMO. Inputs and outputs are available to control and monitor a door. They are as usual freely programmable. The CMO supports four LEDs in four different colours with different functions.
• Secure data transfer
• Cheaper cabling
• Bidirectional data transfer
• Remote configuration and administration
• Confirmation of reader status and identity
• Transparent mode for Smart Card
OSDP is supported by international manufacturers. Suitable card readers have been tested by us and are available at HID, Conlan, Voxio, Vanderbilt, Idesco.
The NOX CMO is ready for EN 50131 grade 3 and is submitted for certification. It is available as of March 2017. The order number is N233-G3.
