Our Price : $1,320.41

Product Code: GEC-ACUXL16B


The ACUXL16 Networked Intelligent Controller features state-ofthe-art technology, and provides both the flexibility and reliability needed to meet today’s complex access control and alarm monitoring requirements. Using a sophisticated high speed embedded 32-bit, 90 MHz microprocessor and high-capacity 16 MB memory, the ACUXL16 controls up to 16 readers. Each ACUXL16 supports up to 250,000 cardholders and can communicate over LAN, fiber, dial-up or RS-485 networks.

The ACUXL16 interfaces with GE Facility Commander Wnx, Diamond II and Sapphire Pro software. It offers a wide range of features and flexibility that focus on reliability, durability, and ease of installation and maintenance.

The ACUXL16 incorporates two external device ports, each capable of controlling eight readers/interfaces, which are multi-dropped using an RS-485 interface. Input and output capacity can be expanded through the use of RIM Remote Alarm Input Modules and RRM Remote Relay Output Modules connected remotely through a simple multi-drop RS-485 interface. Each panel includes a parallel printer port to provide local, real-time printing of transactions.

ACUXL16 panels provide the flexibility and reliability needed to meet today’s complex integrated security management and alarm monitoring requirements. All card access decisions and alarm monitoring
activity are performed locally at the panel based on parameters that are downloaded from the server. These local control capabilities minimize network traffic and optimize processing time for card access transactions. Local access control processing continues even in the unlikely event that communication with the server is lost.

Reliable monitoring:

All ACUs are provided with 12 supervised alarm inputs plus cabinet tamper detection, power fault and low battery alarms. The ACUs also include 12 auxiliary output relays, which can be locally or globally linked to single or multiple alarm inputs with conditional activation. Relay linking and activation parameters, as well as reader, remote control and time commands, are also downloaded from the server and stored in local memory.

Powerful database:

The ACU’s local database is downloaded from the server to provide local access control processing even in the unlikely event that communication with the server is lost. The local database supports
storage of up to 250,000 card records, including associated PIN, time schedule, and door authorization parameters.

When a cardholder presents a card to a reader, the ACU retrieves the card record from its local database to determine if the individual is authorized for entry at the associated door, and during that day and time. If access is authorized the ACU then activates the appropriate lock control relay. When the transaction is complete the access event is transmitted to the server for storage on disk. If communication is lost between the ACU unit and the server, the event is stored locally until communication is restored - after which all locally stored events will be uploaded to the server for storage on disk.

Dynamically allocated memory:

A minimum of 10,000 event transactions can be stored in local memory. The actual number of transaction events that may be stored is dynamically allocated within the 16 MB of available memory, depending on the number of cardholders in the panel. This method of storing and uploading events also applies to alarms and other events.

Cost-effective communications:

The ACUXL16 is equipped with an onboard LAN port for communication over a standard 10 Base-T network using TCP/UDP protocol. Network connection results in fast download speeds of up to 3,000 card records per second. ACU panels may be multi-dropped (via RS485) down-line from an ACU panel connected to the server through a LAN.

The ACUXL16 also supports direct multi-drop connection to the server via RS485 for environments where a LAN connection is not available. ACU panels may be multi-dropped from each server serial port.

ACUs are available with full dial-up control for connection over standard telephone lines to any Facility Commander Wnx, Diamond II or Sapphire Pro system. ACU panels may be multi-dropped (via RS485) down-line from an ACU panel connected to the server through dial-up. The dial-up software is designed to allow the ACU to dial up to eight pre-programmed telephone numbers through an optional modem. This allows it to annunciate alarms and/or upload transaction history to a server. Optional modems may also be added to the server when dial-up panels are used.

Flexible input/output:

Any combination of up to eight remote interface modules can be connected in place of reader interfaces for additional capacity, including Relay Output Modules, and Alarm Input Modules, which provide 16 additional six-state supervised alarm inputs with dedicated tri-color LED status indicators.

Inputs: Each alarm input allows detection/reporting of circuit trouble conditions including loop resistance too low (short circuit), loop resistance too high (open circuit), loop voltage out of range (circuit fault), and a portion of loop grounded (ground fault).

Outputs: The ACUXL16 includes 12 SPDT relay outputs that are configurable for control of locking devices, activation of local annunciators and other output applications. Each SPDT relay is rated at 2.0
A, 30 Vdc, and includes an LED status indicator. Any combination of up to eight remote interface modules can be connected in place of reader interfaces for additional capacity. Modules include Alarm Input Modules, and Relay Output Modules, each of which provide 16 additional output relays.
