TDSi Offers Combined IP And PSU With Latest Model Of Popular MICROgarde Controllers

Product Profile

TDSi is pleased to add a new model to its MICROgarde controller range, offering integrated IP and PSU.

The MICROgarde entry level range of networkable access control products give many of the benefits of a bigger system, without the need for a big budget. For organizations exploring the world of access control for the first time, MICROgarde offers easy installation, reduced cost of ownership and highly competitive pricing to offer the best value and most practical access control system available. The addition of this latest model means MICROgarde I and MICROgarde II can be purchased with IP, Power Supply or both, offering customers greater choice.

MICROgarde also delivers unrivalled flexibility of system design. Available in one or two door versions, TDSi has designed the product to cater for the diverse range of needs and situations that may arise. All controllers feature distributed intelligence (with a battery backup), meaning the controller operates and makes decisions even when communication to the host PC is lost. Should this happen, events are stored within the controller until communication is restored and this is uploaded with no loss of data.

MICROgarde also offers a further money saving and practical advantage by its ability to be integrated with other TDSi or third-party systems such as CCTV, biometrics and photo ID cards - to make the most of other building services investments. TDSi has also designed MICROgarde to make the life of installers easier, with a number of useful features to significantly reduce the effort and time required for installation and/or integration.
