Product Description


The Keri Systems PXL-500 contains all the input/output functionality necessary to manage a single door (Lock Relay, Door Sense, Request-to-Exit, and two reader inputs) as well as provide an alarm output. Each controller has an RS-485 port for connection to other PXL-500’s (up to 128 per network) and an RS-232 serial port for connection to a PC which communicates with the first PXL-500 on the network. The PXL-500's two reader inputs can be configured with any Wiegand-compatible device (model PXL-500W for Wiegand-compatible readers).

• A RISC-based multiprocessor platform, resulting in the new PXL-500 Tiger II Controller, its companion SB-593 Expansion Board, and high performance, low cost proximity readers.
• The PXL-500 Tiger Controller has all of the functionality needed to manage a single door, alarm output, and 2 reader ports. A second door can be added when used with SB-593 Satellite Expansion Board.
• The SB-593 Satellite Expansion Board economically provides second door control plus extra general purpose inputs and outputs.
• The new PXL-500 Tiger II Controller platform has taken Keri's acclaimed proximity-based access control system to the next level. Strong enough to manage a 256 door network at a single site or 256 doors per site at multiple sites, yet tame enough to handle a single door, the PXL-500 continues Keri's tradition of flexibility and expandability.
• Locking Metal Enclosure that can also house KPS-4 Power Supply and battery
• Added RAM for increased cardholder capacity (up to 65K per controller)
• On-board LAN socket for new low cost LAN-500
• Increased EEPROM memory to support future enhanced firmware capabilities

Installer Features and Enhancements

• Double row header pins to ensure SB-593 is properly seated on PXL
• Additional LED indicator to confirm SB is properly seated
• RS-232 connector changed from DB-9 to quick disconnect terminal block
• RS-485 continuity indicator LED
• RS-485 connector different size so as not to interconnect with power input

Reliability Enhancements

• More protection for RS-485 circuitry
• Added relay protection for arc suppression

Other Great Installation Features - Inherited from the PXL-250

• On-board diagnostic tests built into the controller firmware
• Diagnostic LEDs on the controller board to assist with troubleshooting communication and controller power issues
• Automatically senses communication method (direct connect to PC or via modem)
