New Samsung Controllers

New controllers on display at ISC West include the SSA-S2000 Stand-Alone Single Door Controller with 125 KHz proximity and PIN access. The SSA-S2000V provides the same feature set in a vandal-resistant version. All I/Os and operation time are programmable by keypad. The unit features five independent inputs and four outputs including two that are 2 form-C relay outputs.
The new SSA-S1000 Weatherproof (IP68 rated) Stand-Alone Single Door Controller offers 125 KHz proximity access control along with direct control of a door lock selectable for power fail-safe or power fail-secure operation. The unit accommodates 512 users. The SSA-S1000V offers the same feature set in a vandal-resistant version.

Designed for up to 20,000 users, the SSA-S2100 Stand-Alone Single Door Controller combines 125KHz proximity card and PIN verification. The unit provides dual function access control and time and attendance operations. The SSA-S2101 employs 13.56 MHz contactless smart card operation and is selectable to 10,000/20,000 ID users and 20,000/10,000 event buffers. Four levels of door open times can be set by individual ID, and time schedules can be set by individual ID, input port, output port and reader mode. Network communication is provided via RS-232, RS-485 or built-in TCP/IP. Other features include four inputs, four outputs (2 relay output), and 26bit/34bit Wiegand input/output.

Adding biometric functionality, the SSA-S3010 Stand-Alone Single-Door Controller incorporates fingerprint recognition for up to 1,000 users along with a 125 KHz proximity card reader and PIN verification. The unit also provides time and attendance in addition to access control functionality. The SSA-S3020 Stand-Alone Single-Door Controller accommodates recognition of up to 2,000 fingerprint users, and the SSA-S3040 incorporates up to 4,000 fingerprint users. The controllers provide 1:1 verification and 1:N (one-to-many) identification against storable two-fingerprint templates; a display shows fingerprint quality. The controllers are also selectable for 10,000/20,000 ID users and 20,000/10,000 event buffers and have other features similar to Model SSA-S2100.
