VertX® V300 Output Control Interface

Output Control Processing for up to 12 Devices

The HID VertX products provide a complete and fully featured hardware/firmware infrastructure for access control software host systems. The V300 output control interface contains 12 latching Form-C relays, which can connect up to 12 devices controllable by simple contact closures, such as logic inputs for process equipment, HVAC and elevator control panels, CCTV switchers, etc. Loads exceeding 2 A @ 30 VDC should be controlled via interposing relays.

The V300 features on-board flash memory, allowing program updates to be downloaded via the network. The V300 connects to the V1000 through a high speed RS-485 network. The V1000 communicates with the system host via industry standard TCP/IP protocol over 10/100 Mbps Ethernet or the Internet. This architecture minimizes the impact on corporate LANs, by using only one TCP/IP address for every 32 Interfaces, and by handling low-level transactions on the RS-485 network.
