PXL-500 Tiger II Controller

General Information


PXL-500 Tiger Controller II

high-quality, sophisticated access control systems at prices that are much less
than others How did Keri do it

Lets start with the world class hardware:
A RISC-based multiprocessor platform, resulting in the new PXL-500 Tiger II
Controller, its companion SB-593 Expansion Board, and high performance, low
cost proximity readers.

The PXL-500 Tiger Controller has all of the functionality needed to
manage a single door, alarm output, and 2 reader ports. A second door can be
added when used with SB-593 Satellite Expansion Board.

The SB-593 Satellite Expansion Board economically provides second door
control plus extra general purpose inputs and outputs.

The PXL-500 Tiger II Controller Platform
The new PXL-500 Tiger II Controller platform has taken Keri\’s acclaimed
proximity-based access control system to the next level. Strong enough to
manage a 256 door network at a single site or 256 doors per site at multiple
sites, yet tame enough to handle a single door, the PXL-500 continues Keri\’s
tradition of flexibility and expandability.
