Kantech releases its newest generation of ioProx proximity readers. They leverage a new, streamlined design with quick-connect terminal blocks, and a mullion/ keypad combination. These readers provide a cost-effective, easy to install access control solution, using either the XSF format with Kantech's EntraPass access control system, or the 26-bit Wiegand version with most industry access control systems.
The newly redesigned ioProx readers implement quick connect terminal blocks which allow installers to 'snap and lock' the necessary wires to the reader. Other cost-saving features include support for unshielded cable, and removable covers. Other unique features of the new ioProx readers include a mullion style complete with keypad, which fits neatly on any standard doorjamb, and Braille embossed keypads, which allows the readers to be part of an ADA compliant security solution.

Here's the Juice
Juice Goose introduces the RPS16 rack mounted power supply for CCTV cameras, recorders and monitor systems. It's a versatile platform for providing an all-in-one power source to meet most CCTV power needs in a centralized, rack mounted location. Rack mounting allows all camera power leads to terminate in the same rack as the recorder. Multiple voltage options mean only one power supply is required for up to 16 cameras, regardless of camera design or power requirements.

Access Control and Central Station Automation Systems
HID presents an open architecture platform that enables central station security monitoring software providers to fully integrate access control functions within central station host software, eliminating the need for separate access control systems that today are merely co-located within the central station facility. It also provides bi-directional communications for video-related services in central stations without modifying the existing infrastructure.
American Dynamics' new MegaPower 48 Plus matrix switcher is scaled to small and mid-sized operations; it incorporates features typically found only in the largest of systems such as video loss detection and wireless alarm notification. This matrix switcher functions as a standalone unit or part of a network, and can be integrated with DVRs and VCRs via recorder control devices. Its slim vertical design fits practically everywhere, letting installers save on wiring costs as they are able to place the unit more accessible to cameras. EASY48 software enables control from a remote location. Three expansion modes are available, adding up to 288 cameras and eight monitors.
