Galaxy Control Systems, a premier manufacturer of integrated access control systems, announced its entry into the enterprise access control market with the introduction of System Galaxy, an enterprise class, integrated access control solution, available exclusively through Galaxy certified dealers.
System Galaxy is a state-of-the-art, integrated access control system that operates in the Microsoft Windows NT environment. Using Galaxy's new 500 Series controller to provide powerful and flexible integrated access and security management functions, System Galaxy can operate as a single workstation solution or it can be interfaced with an existing network (LAN or WAN), saving installation time and money.
The system features:
* Multiple connectivity options: System Galaxy can operate as a standalone system or it can control multiple sites through a dial-up connection or an existing LAN/WAN. The host PC and primary control unit can communicate over a LAN/WAN via TCP/IP, allowing clients to utilise their existing network infrastructure to control and monitor their security management systems. Remote facilities can be easily integrated into the system without the expense of dedicated lines.
* System wide inputs and outputs: Intelligent controllers allow any input (ie an alarm event) or multiple inputs, to signal one or more outputs, system wide, to provide control over alarms and facility management functions, without a PC being on-line. This will allow the system to operate even in the event of a PC failure.
* Alarm dial-back: Off-line remote can automatically notify the host PC when a significant alarm occurs, eliminating the need for system operators to constantly check for alarms.
* ODBC compliant, SQL backend database: SQL (structured query language) has been standardised by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Standards Organisation (ISO). The use of such a backend database provides several key advantages over a proprietary database design:
The database server can be changed without altering the software.
Third party report generation software can be used to generate custom reports.
Clients can use their existing database professionals for administration and support activities.
Galaxy subsystems, such as badging, CCTV and building automation can use the same database for seamless integration.
"With the introduction of System Galaxy, Galaxy certified dealers can now offer their customers a true enterprise solution. With System Galaxy's network capabilities, open architecture and database flexibility, end users can now enjoy the benefits of an integrated access management system across their entire organisation," said Rick Fournier, Managing Director of Galaxy Control Systems.
