Continental Access debuts field upgradeable Legacy Panels

Used in private, public and government facilities around the world, our Legacy Panels support access control functions for 1–4 doors. Smarterm, Miniterm and Microterm as they are called, store multiple card (bit) formats in their internal memory to allow current cardholders/readers to remain in working order.

Unlike other access control manufacturers, Continental’s intelligent panels are easily configured to work with our latest CardAccess 3000 software, saving you time and money. Our Legacy Panels operate as standalone units if server communications are interrupted and programming does not require server communications to continue, as it automatically stores system transactions in its internal memory.

Our Smarterm, Miniterm and Microterm industry standard controllers accept Wiegand output devices and supports Proximity, Biometric, Magnetic Stripe, Barcode, Wiegand, Barium Ferrite, Keypad and Smart Reader technologies. Multiple ports can connect to our server for maximum system expansion while multi-stage lightning/transient protection provides reliability in severe atmospheric conditions.

Continental’s Legacy Panels may be networked together for a fully expandable system. Up to 63 Smarterm, Miniterm or Microterm’s can intermix on the same communications network. Our controllers can communicate via hardwire (repeat or multi-drop mode), LAN/WAN, dial-up, fiber optics or RS232 and RS422 formats for optimal system configuration.
