Altronix ACM8 distributes one (1) 12 to 24 volt AC or DC input over eight (8) independently controlled fuse protected outputs. The outputs can also be coofigured as dry form "C" contacts. Outputs are activated by an open collector sink or normally open (NO) dry trigger input from an Access Control System, Card Reader, Keypad, Push Button, PIR, etc. It will route power to a variety of access control hardware devices including Mag Locks, Electric Strikes, Magnetic Door Holders, etc. Outputs will operate in both fail-safe and fail-secure modes. The ACM8 is designed to be powered by one common power source which will provide power for both the board operation and locking devices, or two totally independent power sources, one (1) providing power for board operation and the other for lock / accessory power. The FACP Interface enables Emergency Egress, Alarm Monitoring, HVAC Shutdown, Elevator Recall or maybe used to trigger other auxiliary devices. The fire alarm disconnect can be configured for the following modes; a) Eight (8) outputs affected or b) Four (4) outputs affected and four (4) outputs unaffected (50/50 mode).
