PROXX Access Control


PPXL100 and PPXL250 Proxxsmart Entry 

  The PPXL100 and PPXL 250 Proxxsmart Entry Controllers can be used in a stand-alone mode or networked to create systems for controlling up to 64 doors or gates. Each controller maintains complete intelligence at each location. The PPXL100 has capacity to manage up to 7,000 users and store up to 3,000 events in non-volatile memory. The unique design supports plug-in option boards through an expansion port. The option boards add features and functionality where needed without cost-burdening the system. When they are not required,the Proxxsmart system is the most price-competitive system on the market.

The controller provides all of the standard functions necessary to control a door or gate. Each controller supports 2 readers, one for access, the other for egress, direction sensing or anti-passback. A standard RS-232 serial output is provided for communication with various serial devices, such as a PC, modem, or printer, without the need for extra hardware in the PC. Up to 32 controllers can be connected on a Proxxnet network, and communication between controllers utilizes RS-485, one of the most reliable network technologies available.

Programming can be accomplished using a remote hand-held programmer (PHPP100) or a PC (386 or better) with color monitor. However, the use of a PC is recommended for systems with more than 3 doors because of programming ease and to take full advantage of the features found in the software. The software is Windows 95 or DOS based and can be applied to stand-alone and multi door systems either directly connected or remotely via modem. The software is extremely easy to operate, with pull down menus and user-friendly screens for simple data manipulation and report generation.

Proxxware Software

    Proxxware are software programs that configure and manage access control systems utilizing the PPXL100 and PPXL250 Proxxsmart Entry Controllers. The software is Windows 95 or DOS-based, with user friendly pull-down menu driven screens that define system parameters, manage card and transaction files, set timing functions, and prepare activity reports. PPXL100 Controllers have diagnostic firmware built-in that the software can access to review the operation and health of the Proxxnet network. The software is renowned for its ease of use and its reliability. Software functions include:

PMS4000 ProxxSTEALTHTM Proximity Reader


    The PMS4000 Proxxstealth Proximity Reader is designed for areas where crime and vandalism are a constant threat to the access control system's card readers. The outside housing is made of stainless steel and is beveled such that it is nearly impossible to get sufficient leverage to pry it off a wall or mullion. The portion of the face of the reader that covers the electronics consists of a material (UL752 listed for bullet-proofness) which can withstand 9mm bullets at "point-blank" firing range and will not be burned by common cigarette lighters, both common sources of vandalism.

The PMS4000 is typically used in applications where other types of readers (including proximity) have failed due to vandalism of the reader itself. The PMS4000 is field proven in its ability to function in open hostile environments.
