VertX® V2000 ReaderInterface/Network Controller

Access Control Processing and Host Interface for Two Readers/Doors

The HID VertX products provide a complete and fully featured hardware/firmware infrastructure for OEM access control software host systems, communicating via industry standard TCP/IP protocol, over 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, or the Internet. The V2000 boasts a 32-bit RISC processor running the Linux Operating System. On-board flash memory allows program updates to be downloaded via the network. The V2000 connects to two access control card readers via Wiegand or Clock-and-Data interface controlling either one or two doors. This architecture takes advantage of the existing corporate LAN and the existing CAT-5 cable.

Key Features

    • Connects with and stores a complete access control and configuration database for one or two controlled doors and 44,000 cardholders with expansion capability to 250,000 cardholders.
    • Processes access control decisions.
    • Reports supervised inputs/alarms with 255 priorities.
    • Allows local connection of a laptop computer for diagnostics and configuration.
    • Connects to the host and to other devices on the TCP/IP network.
    • Receives and processes real time commands from the host software application.
    • Reports all activity to the host
    • Controls and communicates with all connected devices.
    • Buffers offline transactions and uploads to the host when communication is restored.
    • UL 294 and UL 1076 recognized components.
