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.

CEM Systems releases OSDP v2 compliant door controller to support HID Global’s iCLASS SE reader range

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.”
