Johnson Controls releases CEM Systems DCM 400 four-door intelligent encrypted IP controller

Johnson Controls has announced the introduction of the CEM Systems DCM 400 four-door intelligent encrypted IP controller. It’s an intelligent controller which provides a secure and cost-effective solution for the bi-directional control of up to four doors.

The DCM 400 is designed to directly interface with CEM Systems AC2000 access control system (v10.2 and higher) and Wiegand or CEM Systems approved and supplied Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP v2) smart card readers.

Using powerful 32-bit processors, the DCM 400 gives full offline verification and decision making at the point of entry, with a local cardholder database of up to 500,000 cards and storage of up to 80,000 offline events designed to ensure improved communications and response at the door.

The DCM 400 contains a number of features to improve ease of installation and maintenance. These include an LCD display and a 12-character keypad to allow configuration and troubleshooting directly on the board.

A graphical overlay wiring guide and spare network points on the DCM 400 allow for local access to diagnostic web pages. The enclosure has been designed with a removable door for ease of access, an increased number of punch-outs (20 mm and 25 mm) and cable tie points for improved cable management options.

Smart power features include automatic detection of 10.5 V DC to 28 V DC power supplies. This simplifies installation without the need for jumper-links or configuration.

The DCM 400 dashboard web page, which can be accessed locally and remotely, provides end users’ installers with improved troubleshooting, monitoring and configuration of the DCM 400 and any equipment that’s connected to it.

The DCM 400 is also a future-proof solution for those who wish to migrate from Wiegand readers to more secure OSDP v2 readers. Both can be supported on the same 400 unit.

FES Group received this year’s award for the UK and Ireland in recognition of its excellent technical expertise and ability to deliver large, integrated solutions particularly within educational and healthcare environments.

FES Group also exhibited commitment to training and gaining understanding of the value proposition of the CEM advanced offerings and is proactively promoting the solutions widely.

Tyco Integrated Fire & Security Netherlands won the award for Europe. Among other things, its success is attributed to its industry-leading experience in deploying integrated projects throughout the Netherlands.

“CEM’s AC2000 access control and security management system provides a highly secure solution that integrates with a range of third party security providers, including video, fire and intrusion,” said Hugo van Vliet, account manager for high end security at Tyco Integrated Fire & Security. “This makes it the ideal choice to deploy in complex projects. AC2000 can also be deployed by customers using one central server for multiple buildings. This architecture saves customers money, and is more flexible when they need access control in multiple sites.”

Security experts Tyco Fire and Security UAE were given the award for the Middle East in recognition of the organisation’s continued success in representing and promoting CEM in the region. “This award is great recognition for the work we have done with CEM Systems to secure a range of prestigious customers throughout the year,” enthused Craig Menzies, security division manager for Tyco Fire and Security UAE.
