Single-door Controller, RS485, e*Tag® Contactless Technology, mullion, black
The e*Tag® Smart Readers are available in either mullion mount (ET8-SR-X-M) or switchplate (ET8-SR-X-D) form factors. The e*Tag® Smart Reader adds Contactless SmartCard capability to the SK-NET™ System using the NOVA.16 Controller. e*Tag® Smart Readers work with SecuraKey e*Tag® encoded 13.56 MHz contactless smart cards and key tags, encoded in 26 or 32-bit formats. e*Tag® cards use enhanced DES encryption, which makes them virtually impossible to counterfeit. e*Tag® credentials have memory ranging from 2K to 10K bits, and they meet the ISO 15693 international standard. The ET8-SR reader connects to the NOVA.16 Controller via the RS-485 peripheral bus, which supports up to 16 readers. The ET8-SR obtains data communications and 12VDC power from the NOVA.16, but it has all the inputs and outputs required to monitor and control a door or gate. The reader sends card data and input status changes to the Controller, and receives access granted, access denied, and output control commands from the Controller. All door connections (Strike/Latch, REX, Door Monitor, aux inputs and outputs) are made locally at the Smart Reader. Cable “Home Runs” from the door location back to the NOVA.16 Controller are not required. NOVA.16’s RS-485 Peripheral Bus may extend up to 4000 cable feet from the control panel. ET8-SR’s may be connected to the NOVA.16 in daisy-chain, multi-drop, or loop configurations, providing great flexibility in system architecture. The ET8-SR-X-D is a switchplate-sized reader which fits a standard J-box. It is designed for indoor applications only. It includes a convenient wiring harness, which allows the reader to be plugged in when the installation is completed. The ET8-SR-X-M is a mullion-sized reader which fits a standard door frame. It is epoxy-potted for outdoor installations. It includes a convenient wiring harness, which allows the reader to be plugged in when the installation is completed.
