LifeSafety Power® , an ASSA ABLOY manufacturer and company of intelligent power management systems for physical security and access control, announced that it has received LenelS2 factory certification and joined the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP).
LifeSafety Power’s NetLink™ NL4 and NLX Network Communication Modules interface with OnGuard® access control software versions 8.0 and 7.6 to supply advanced power management for enterprise access control systems. NetLink adds proactive management and monitoring capabilities to LifeSafety Power’s power systems, interfaces to the OnGuard platform directly, and is engineered to take care of applications which require network-management. Leveraging this new interface, all power system alerts are viewable in the OnGuard software now.
“LifeSafety Power has completed required factory testing at LenelS2 to validate the functionality of its interface to the OnGuard system. This interface to the OnGuard system allows users to include powerful remote monitoring capabilities to LifeSafety Power’s access control power systems via an intuitive browser interface,” said John Marchioli, OAAP Product Management, LenelS2. “We turn to their continued involvement in the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program forward.”
“The capability to receive alerts and notifications on all power-connected systems through the OnGuard system brings greater intelligence to gain access to control solutions,” said John Olliver, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales for LifeSafety Power. “For the systems and end-user integrators, managed power improves the capability to assess power status for greater reliability and uptime preemptively.”
NetLink NL4 is really a four data port network module that communicates and controls power status over an area or wide area network. Typical data reported and gathered includes operational fault status, power output voltage, battery charging volt-age, battery charging current, and fire alarm input status. NetLink NLX can be an eight data port network module that communicates and controls power status over an area or wide area network. NLX also features an RS485 port to permit monitoring of around 16 additional local or remote LSP devices through Distributed Power Monitoring. Both are section of LifeSafety Power’s Flex-Power® modular power management system for security and life safety applications.
