Mercury EP1502/LP1502 Intelligent Controllers

EP1502 Image

The multi-port EP1502 and LP1502 are Ethernet-enabled dual card reader panels for controlling two connected doors and managing up to 64 doors/openings. Built on the Authentic Mercury platform, the intelligent controllers use an Ethernet link to connect to a BluSKY™ host for access control, alarm management, and scheduled operations—all in a single package.

With native connectivity, the high-performance EP1502 and LP1502 function independently of the host for performing numerous access control applications and interfacing with an array of reader technologies: Wiegand, OSDP, RS-485 magnetic stripe, and biometrics.

Alarm management capabilities include standard end-of-line (EOL) resistances; programmable sensitivity and hold time for line conditioning; entry delay latching and unlatching options; and entry-exit delays.

The result is powerful intelligent controllers that deliver flexibility, versatility, and reliability for a successful access control system.

Application Notes

The EP1502 and LP1502 reliably distribute intelligence to ensure the activities generated by select devices can be related to other devices for continued actions, without host intervention.
