Honeywell’s new MAXPRO-Net is a Windows-based, full-featured CPU server specifically designed for security and surveillance professionals. It provides increased flexibility that leverages the latest existing analog video security environments and doesn’t sacrifice the ability to adopt newer digital security solutions. Its system architecture integrates Honeywell’s analog MAXPRO and VideoBloX video matrix switching hardware with more sophisticated digital CCTV recording equipment.
The MAXPRO-Net CPU server integrates small-to-large video matrix environments with networked security control solutions, such as access, fire, building management, intercom and perimeter systems. Its extensive library of CCTV equipment protocols gives system operators precise control and timely information in times of crises, whether they are on-site or remotely located. Live updates, system diagnostics, keyboard emulation, input/output control, alarms, camera test mode and message logs are all possible with pre-installed hardware configuration software tools.
The CPU system server is rack-mount ready and ships complete with an eight-port serial card, keyboard, mouse and MAXPRO-Net system software. In a standalone matrix configuration, up to 4,096 inputs and 256 output channels can be supported with a single MAXPRO-Net CPU system controller.
Market Opportunities The MAXPRO-Net CPU server and software is ideal for any new or retrofit security surveillance application. From small, video matrix switch environments to complete, networkable integrated systems found in casinos, retail stores, healthcare facilities, correctional facilities, airports and other places that require multiple security components. MAXPRO-Net’s power and robustness is designed to meet the challenges of today’s growing security business needs.
