            The EP1501 Edge Kits provides the best solution for smaller or distributed systems. The ability to communicate over ethernet and to be powered by Power Over Ethernet(PoE) allows the installer to quickly deploy a system using the existing networking infrastructure. With all of the convenience of an Edge System you still are able to support 17 Readers, 130 Inputs and 130 Outputs, depending on the SIO Boards you select.
