LINQ8ACM

Network Access Power Controller, 8 Fused Outputs, Board

Altronix LINQ8ACM dual input network access power controller which can be installed in Altronix wall and rack mount enclosures to facilitate access control deployment. Access Power Controller dual input design allows power to be steered from one (1) or two (2) independent low voltage 12 or 24 VDC Altronix power supplies to eight (8) independently controlled fused protected outputs. Outputs are activated by an open collector sink, normally open (NO), normally closed (NC) dry trigger input, or wet output from an Access Control System, Card Reader, Keypad, Push Button, PIR, etc. LINQ8ACM will route power to a variety of access control hardware devices including Mag Locks, Electric Strikes, Magnetic Door Holders, etc. Outputs will operate in both Fail-Safe and/or Fail-Secure modes. The FACP Interface enables Emergency Egress, Alarm Monitoring, or may be used to trigger other auxiliary devices. The fire alarm disconnect feature is individually selectable for any or all of the eight (8) outputs. The spade connectors allow you to daisy chain power to multiple LINQ8ACM modules. This feature allows you to distribute the power over more outputs for larger systems. Built-in LINQ™ Network Power Management facilitates monitoring, reporting and control of power/diagnostics.

LINQ8ACM has built-in LINQ technology which facilitates monitoring, reporting, and control of one (1) or two (2) low voltage AC or supervised DC power supply/chargers over the network. They report diagnostics via Email and Windows Dashboard Alert notifications, greatly reducing system downtime and eliminating unnecessary service calls. LINQ8ACM retrofits with most currently installed multi-output power supply/chargers.
