Videx strengthens flagship door entry systems
Videx has enhanced two of its leading door entry and access control systems, adding a new remote relay module to its 4G GSM offering and the VX2300 door entry video intercom.
The new remote relays create a more robust and secure entry system enabling all door and gate control to be isolated away from the entrance panel in a secure location.
Additionally, the relays can be used for extra services such as triggering additional door or gates, activating security lighting or other functions requiring a relay for triggering purposes.
The Art.2813 relay module is now available for the Videx GSM range of systems and the Art.2313 is available for the VX2300 2 wire video system. These new relays complement the remote relays already available for the VX2200 system (Art.2213) and the IPURE IP range (Art.2505).
Rhys McNichol, Project Manager at Videx UK, said: “The new relays make two of our most popular entry systems even more secure and enable them to be used for properties and buildings where a high level of security is required. The modules are essential for Secured by Design, the official police security initiative that works to improve the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings to provide safe places to live, work, shop and visit. The modules are a great addition to both systems, strengthening their versatility and ability to meet a wide range of entry requirements.”
The Art.2813 for the GSM range of intercom systems comes in a wall mountable small ABS plastic enclosure, powered from 12Vdc and includes a 3A dry contact change over relay output and two additional auxiliary outputs to control up to three outputs per module. All three outputs can be individually programmed to operate from 1 to 63 seconds or in latch/toggle format. Additionally, there is a push to exit input included for the main relay. The module can be addressed from 0 to 63 seconds and connects to the GSM system via RS485.
Addressing the module with the same address as an intercom panel, proximity door reader or coded keypad will enable the module to mirror that modules outputs. Addressing the module as a unique ID will allow that module to be used for additional doors, gates that do not have a keypad, proximity reader or intercom. Outputs can then be triggered via the Videx GSM apps available free from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store or via text message.
The Art.2313 for the VX2300 two wire video systems and kits comes in a DIN mount box which can also be directly wall mounted and is powered from the bus. It includes two 5A dry contact change over relays which can be individually controlled. The relay operating times can be programmed from 2 – 32 seconds and the module can be addressed from 1-15 relating to the door ID the relay is mirroring.
All four relay options are ideal for high security applications that require Secured By Design adding an extra layer of security and peace of mind to door entry and access control solution.
