Secura Key SK-MRCP-NE NOVA.16 Control Panel w/ Connectors

NOVA.16 Multi-Reader Control Panel, No Enclosure, PCBA with Connectors

We are excited to announce the new NOVA.16 by Secura Key! This multi-reader access control panel system eliminates cable home runs from individual doors. Based on a powerful 32-bit RISC processor, it provides major upgrades to Secura Key’s legacy SK-NET system. Each panel connects to the local area network using built-in Ethernet connection. It also connects to a high speed, RS485 peripheral network that supports up to 16 Smart Readers, each controlling a single door or gate.

The peripheral network can extend up to 4,000 feet away from the controller. The NOVA.16’s RS-485 communication lines are protected with gas discharge tube surge suppressors, keeping systems running in areas with extreme weather conditions and power problems.

By reducing the number of control panels required for multi-door systems, plus the associated cost of providing electrical outlets, space and power supplies for those panels, the NOVA.16 provides huge savings in installation time and cost. The NOVA.16 can also be interconnected using the RS-485 Command Bus.
