Sensormatic Electronics Corporation has announced that its Access Control and SensorID Division is developing a new network controller that will use Motorola's embedded PowerPC processor. The new integrated network controller is the first to utilise both Motorola PowerPC and Microsoft Windows CE in a multifunctional modular control device. This innovative design creates a strong application backed by products that are regarded as industry standards.
This new product from Sensormatic ACD, scheduled for release later this year, is an intelligent modular controller that can integrate such applications as access control, alarm management, RFID/asset management, parking management, video multiplexing and transmission and video surveillance camera control from a single controller. This intelligent controller takes these complex operations and packages them into one streamlined product.
"Sensormatic's leading position in the access control and security system market is enhanced by this innovative product," said Don Chouinard, Marketing Manager of Windows CE at Microsoft. "By powering their new controller with the very well regarded embedded Motorola PowerPC and infusing it with the rich system services of Windows CE they have created a true front runner."
"We are very excited about this new endeavour and believe the technical advantages that Motorola PowerPC and Windows CE offer can greatly benefit us as we prepare to launch our new controller," said Steve Cannellos, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Sensormatic's ACD and RFID Division.
Smart technology pairing
"Sensormatic's design is smart," said Barbara Calapristi, Marketing Manager for PowerPC Solutions for Windows CE at Motorola Semiconductor Products Sector. They have captured the signature communication features of the Motorola PowerPC MPC860 and married it to the strong features of Windows CE. This is a great example of smart pairing between Motorola PowerPC and Microsoft's Windows CE."
Sensormatic's C(CURE 800/8000) scalable security management system, manufactured and marketed by ACD, is the industry's most advanced product for access control and integrated control of related security system components.
