The AP-530 is low cost, single door, stand-alone access control. The AP-530 provides complete time zone control of access with its battery-backed real time clock, and provides a printer output for event logging and configuration output, via its RS-232 serial interface. No programming cards, as used on other low cost stand-alone readers, are required. All AP-530 programming is performed via its integral 12 position keypad.
The AP-530 has 4 inputs and 2 outputs. It monitors door contact, exit push-button, reader tamper and auxiliary alarm zone, and outputs control lines for the electric door strike and an auxiliary output. The aux output can be used for a local door alarm, to arm/disarm a separate alarm system, or for any other output functions. The AP-530 can limit access by time of day, day of week and provides up to 20 holidays that can override the day of week. Reader mode (card only, card/PIN, card and PIN, facility codes, locked, unlocked) can be controlled by time.
