Brooklyn, NY (May 24, 2006) - As security systems continue to grow in complexity with multiple devices, there is an increasing demand for reliable low voltage power devices to simultaneously power a variety of access control hardware. Altronix remains in pace with the needs of the industry with the introduction of their new Maxim 33 Access Power Controller, the latest addition to the recently introduced Maxim Access Power Controller Product Series.
"Our new Maxim Series offers a practical and efficient approach to power management, and its modular design supports the ongoing industry shift to integrated systems," said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corporation.
"The multiple configuration options provided by the Maxim 33 help make the design and installation of access control systems effortless."
Previewed at the recent ISC West, the Maxim Series interfaces with access control panels and routes power to a variety of access control devices including magnetic locks, electric strikes, door holders, card readers, and biometrics.
The Maxim 33 features 16 independently trigger controlled wet/dry outputs via two eight-output access power controllers. Each of the two power controller outputs can be configured to simultaneously offer 12VDC and/or 24VDC at up to 12 amps of total power. All outputs incorporate built-in selectable latching or non-latching fire alarm (FACP) interfaces. Also incorporated into the design of the Maxim 33 is monitoring for AC failure, low battery and battery presence.
