Integrators, installers and end-users are realizing the need to replace legacy access control protocols with the Security Industry Association's OSDP standard. To simplify migration to the new standard, use the Cypress OSM-1000 OSDP-Wiegand Converter to connect an OSDP-compliant reader to a legacy access controller.
The OSM-1000 is the first in a family of products that are specifically designed to allow legacy card access panels and readers to interface with the SIA - Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP). Wiegand, Serial, Strobed, ABA, Bar Code, and other widely used interfaces and formats are re-packaged into an equivalent OSDP packet structure. The OSM-1000 can be field configured to be a reader-side (PD) or panel-side device (CP).
Reader-Side (PD): converts legacy card reader interfaces and formats to a 2-wire OSDP protocol to be connected to a compatible access control panel.
Panel-Side (CP): converts OSDP readers and other door hardware to legacy Wiegand, MagStripe, Serial, and other panel required formats. Door signals such as REX, alarm, and strike are converted to simple relay, digital, or analog equivalents.
