Product Specifications
  • Secura Key’s new NOVA.16 multi-reader access control panel, based on a powerful 32-bit RISC processor, provides a major technology upgrade to Secura Key’s legacy SK-NET? system.

    The NOVA.16 introduces a new more efficient architecture for the SK-NET? system. Each panel connects to the local area network using its built-in Ethernet connection, and it also connects to a high speed, RS485 peripheral network which supports up to 16 Smart Readers, each controlling a single door or gate. (NOVA.16’s can also be interconnected using the RS-485 Command Bus).

    The Peripheral Network can extend up to 4000 feet away from the controller. The NOVA.16’s RS-485 communications lines are protected with gas discharge tube surge suppressors, which helps keep systems running in areas with extreme weather conditions and power problems.

    Secura Key Smart Readers are designed to work with the NOVA.16 Multi-Reader Control Panel, and SK-NET? version 5.1. Each Smart Reader has all the inputs and outputs to monitor and control a door or gate, including a Solid State Strike/Latch Relay, two Open Collector outputs for controlling low powered devices (or interposing relays),and four inputs for monitoring door monitor switches, REX buttons, tamper outputs and more. These input and output connections are made directly at the Smart Reader. The Smart Reader only requires a twisted pair for RS485 data, plus an additional pair for 12VDC power, which can all be accomplished using inexpensive CAT 5e cable.
