SecuraKey’s new NOVA.16 multi-reader access control panel, based on a powerful 32-bit RISC processor, provides a major technology upgrade to Secura Key’s legacy SK-NET system.
The NOVA.16 introduces a new more efficient architecture for the SK-NET™ system. Each panel connects to the local area network using its built-in Ethernet connection, and it also connects to a high speed, RS485 peripheral network which supports up to 16 Smart Readers, each controlling a single door or gate. (NOVA.16’s can also be interconnected using the RS-485 Command Bus).
The Peripheral Network can extend up to 4000 feet away from the controller. The NOVA.16’s RS-485 communications lines are protected with gas discharge tube surge suppressors, which helps keep systems running in areas with extreme weather conditions and power problems.
By reducing the number of control panels required for multidoor systems, plus the associated cost of providing electrical outlets, space and power supplies for those panels, the NOVA.16 provides a huge savings in installation time and cost.
