September 99 Access Control & Identity Management

Provicom Industries has recently been appointed the South African distributor for the Apollo range of access control and alarm management products. Apollo is a California-based manufacturer which has distributors and installers in over 60 countries around the world. The product range can cater for requirements from a small standalone system to the largest of system requirements.

APACS Apollo access and alarm management software

"Provicom Industries is particularly pleased to introduce to the South African market the new Apollo APACS Windows 98/NT-based access control and alarm management software," says Key Accounts Executive, Doug Evans.

"The APACS software comes in three packages: Lite, Standard and Pro. The Lite version provides on-line display of events, elevator control, time and attendance, password-protected configuration of database, alarm linkage, event retrieval and sorting," adds Evans.

"The Standard version (in addition to the Lite features) includes colourgraphics maps, video badging and supports up to 3072 readers.

The APAC Pro is an advanced alarm/access management system. It supports up to 256 workstations and 18 384 readers of various technologies and operates with the Windows NT network. Both Standard and Pro provide CCTV interface," says Evans.

The APACS works with standard databases such as SQL, Access, Oracle. The software provides a user-friendly environment for operating and processing of access/alarm information.

Apollo AAN-100, alarm/access network controller

The new AAN-100 controller utilises a 32-bit processor to support up to 96 readers, 32 16-zone alarm panels, 1,3 million cardholders and 650 000-event storage. Single or dual, network or serial, communications between the AAN-100 and the host are available using user selected communication modules. No terminal server is required for network connection, as the AAN-100 becomes a network member.

The standard AAN-100 has built-in support like elevator control, alarm masking, anti-passback, area loading, advanced alarm linkage, dual path reporting, dial-up operation, 2-card 2-man control, CCTV interface, flash memory and other features.

Together with other Apollo AIM-4SL downloadable reader interface, the user's system enjoys complete database redundancy with no degradable mode of reader operation.

Apollo AIM-4SL, 4-door intelligent reader interface module

The AIM-4SL is Apollo's latest range of products manufactured using the SMT technology. The AIM-4SL is an intelligent interface module between the access control panel and four readers of various technologies. The AIM-4SL provides 12 grade A supervised alarm inputs, local database, 128 time zones, 255 access levels, flash memory and support for up to eight different card formats. The interface also has eight standard relay outputs or unique digitally encoded strike outputs in a high security installation.

In event of loss of communication with the access control panel the AIM-4SL will provide full functionality for up to 20 000 cardholders and storage of 7000 events.
