PAC access control product range now available from Stanley Security
23 April 2020
THE NEWLY-redesigned PAC access control product range is now available through Stanley Security. Providing exceptional reliability and functionality, PAC access control systems have been serving both the commercial and residential markets for over 40 years.
With innovation at the heart of its success, the PAC product portfolio has now been redesigned to provide an even higher level of security with pioneering features, improved energy efficiency and greater scalability, all at a highly competitive price point.
One of the most exciting developments in the revised PAC product range is the new PAC 512 access controllers. Available in stand-alone, analogue networkable and IP networkable models, the new controllers are scalable from one to 2,000 doors and support up to 75,000 unique identification devices via Access Central (PAC’s new management software).
The controllers come with two inputs and two outputs, as well as a host of new functions including event-to-action (where inputs and outputs can be configured and used to deliver rules-based responses to an event), local anti-passback, muster reports for fire evacuation, lift call and alarm point control; all without the need for ancillary equipment, providing significant cost savings, reduced power usage and a smaller installation footprint.
Energy efficiency has also been incorporated into other aspects of the PAC range, most notably so in the new PS50 power supply unit. With 80% efficiency at most loads, it uses considerably less power than previous power supply units. The PS50 has been certified to California Energy Commission (CEC) Level 6, meaning that the high energy efficiency facilitates operational savings.
At the heart of the PAC access control system is its software. The previously mentioned Access Central is the latest generation management software, replacing the former NT500 solution. Highly versatile, Access Central can be adapted to suit every access control installation, whether a single site or a global organisation.
There are two licensing options for Access Central: the free SE level aimed at small organisations and the Professional level. Feature packs are also available to extend the options available to customers, where required, in a cost efficient manner.
Access Central supports Active Directory integration, which vastly reduces set-up and in-life management of keyholders when connected to an Active Directory feed. So, for example, end users can take a feed from an HR database/directory and Access Central will automatically remove access rights when a person is removed from their data. That person will no longer be able to access a site(s), even if they retain their fob/card.
The PAC portfolio will be supported by a customer training programme, a dedicated customer services and technical support facility and a new five-year warranty for all hardware.
