  • Larger power supply.
  • Capacity to expand to more users and doors.
  • Option to install Standalone then switch to Online.
  • Compatibility with a wide range of reader technologies.
  • Fully Integrated Biometric fingerprint with template distribution.

Unlike many systems, all P4 Controllers can now distribute fingerprint templates throughout the system. Because there is no need for Network duplication, P4 offers fully integrated Biometric access control with lower hardware and installation cost.
P4 is the latest generation Progeny Controller and introduces a host of new features…Unlike other systems, all P4 Controllers now distribute fingerprint templates throughout the system – meaning we can offer fully integrated Biometric access control at a low reader unit cost as there is no need for Network duplication.

    Cost Effective

    A new feature of the P4 is the automatic storage and distribution of Bio templates throughout the local and wide area network, regardless of site location, with no network duplication. This allows for Biometrics to be added cost effectively using the low cost ‘4850’ Fingerprint Reader.

  • Connector.

    Scalable

    The P4 system architecture allows for expansion without any additional equipment costs – up to 128,000 users and an unlimited number of doors can be added.

  • Connector.

    Powerful

    The P4 now includes a 12V 5A Charger power supply, so budgeting power usage is a thing of the past. The charger also features un-interrupted changeover from mains to battery, deep discharge protection for the battery and 3 individually fused auxiliary outputs.

  • Connector.

    Flexible

    Controllers can be installed Standalone, then used Online as the infrastructure allows.

  • Connector.

    Reliable

    The on-board memory stores all the access control information for a given door, including card details and Bio templates – providing fully distributed intelligence. So, in the event of lost communication with the server, the controller will function normally. A 200-year data retention and an event log of 8000 events per Controller give extra peace of mind as there is no loss of data.

  • Connector.

    Easy to install

    Onboard keypad enables the Engineer to set the IP address at the Controller, no need to visit a PC. All local door functions can be programmed via the onboard keypad eg. adding cards to test if the system is functioning correctly or run standalone.

  • Connector.

    Wide Choice of Reader Technologies

    Choose from several card and reader types: Proximity, Biometric, Keypad, Mag Stripe or Bar Code. The P4 controller is compatible with most standard reader technologies and works with all HID Readers. Each controller has two reader inputs which are independently programmable, so you can mix formats and technologies to suit your needs.

  • Connector.

    Interlock capability as standard

    Interlock function is included as standard. Create an airlock between two doors by simply cross-connecting two wires.

Controller Models

The P4 Controller comes in 4 standard options. Choose from.Net models which connect directly to your LAN/WAN via Ethernet or standard models which connect via RS485 network. All P4 models are Online and connect to the FREE Doors Enterprise software.

P4.PoE (Power over Ethernet)

If you need access control in an outdoor setting where mains power is not readily accessible, look no further. These Power over Ethernet (PoE) controllers allow for a simple, fast and cost-effective install. You will save time on the need to provide electrical power spurs to controllers. Instead, existing Ethernet structured cabling (Cat 5) is used with a PoE Ethernet switch.

Features

  • PoE 12V @ 1.7 A PSU
  • IP addressable with Integrated Ethernet electronics
  • 32,000 Credential Users
  • 1000 BiometricUsers
  • 8000 Event log storage
  • 200 year data retention
  • Built in service light
  • Solid-state Lock Drive
  • Dimensions (mm) W320 x H308 x D78
  • Product Code 1 Door 4003-17
  • Product Code Injector (Optional) 4003-17-INJ
