The company's Reader Control Module (RCM) with Power over Ethernet (PoE) with door strike capabilities secures remote entryway access control in airports, hospitals, corporate buildings, industrial plants, schools and government facilities.

PoE is available as an option on the RCM. The RCM III with PoE enables new and retrofit sites the cost-cutting alternative of supplying power to new door readers, door controllers and door strikes via the building?s Ethernet. PoE is an emerging security system technology that transmits electrical power and data to remote devices over an existing standard Ethernet network's twisted-pair CAT5 cables.

This eliminates up to 33 percent in installation/labor costs associated with running individual AC power supplies to new entryway access control hardware, according to the company. The RCM III can be installed by Matrix Systems? in-house technicians, integrators or by the end-user.

The RCM III is compliant with IEEE 802.3af standards and is designed to operate with new and existing Matrix Systems' software and hardware access control and security products. The RCM III is factory designed/manufactured in the U.S.
