CEM Systems – part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco – has released the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) v2 compliant eDCM 350. The CEM eDCM 350 OSDP is a two-door intelligent IP controller that’s designed to interface with OSDP-compliant smart card readers and provides a secure encrypted communication channel between the smart card reader and the door controller.
OSDP is an Open Supervised Device Protocol for peripheral devices. With added Secure Channel Protocol (SCP) specification, it provides bi-directional communications and advanced security features for connecting to OSDP-compliant card readers.
With the CEM eDCM (Door Control Module) 350 intelligent internal database, cards can be validated even while offline, in turn ensuring the highest levels of system uptime and reliability.
The eDCM 350 OSDP may be configured to support two OSDP-compliant readers on two separate doors with optional exit push buttons, or to support two OSDP-compliant readers on a single door for entry/exit control.
In addition, the CEM eDCM 350 OSDP supports a range of HID Global ODSP v2 compliant readers, among them iCLASS SE R10, R30, R40 and RK40.
“HID Global’s OSDP SE reader range can be perfectly integrated with the CEM eDCM 350, providing our joint customers a wider range of highly secure solutions,” explained Volker Kunz, sales director for the EMEA region at HID Global.
“HID Global is at the forefront of developing industry standard-based compliant products and the successful partnership with CEM Systems reinforces our leading position in the marketplace.”
Rick Focke, senior product manager at Tyco Security Products, added: “This newest version of our CEM eDCM 350 cost-effective intelligent two door controller, offering full OSDP v2 support, provides our customers with an even greater choice of secure readers and card technology solutions and the potential for enhanced functionalities. We’re delighted to have completed this integration and to be supporting a select range of HID Global’s OSDP v2 readers.”
