Dual Input Access Power Controller, 8 Fuse Protected Outputs, Board

Altronix ACMS8 is UL listed sub-assemblies designed to be used in Altronix wall and rack mount enclosures. Input power to ACMS8 is to be derived from eFlow series power supplies. Dual input design allows power to be steered from two (2) independent low voltage 5 to 24 VDC power sources into eight (8) independently controlled fuse protected outputs. In ACMS8, these power outputs can also be converted to dry form “C” contacts. Outputs are activated by an open collector sink, normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) dry trigger input from an Access Control System, Card Reader, Keypad, Push Button, PIR, etc. ACMS8 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 ACMS8 module. This feature allows you to distribute the power over more outputs for larger systems.
