Access Controllers | Fault Tolerant Controller FT309

PCSC offers the world’s first Fault Tolerant (FT) controller series creating the highest level of reliability with its automated process of system recovery for access control, alarm monitoring and output control systems. The

FT Architecture (FTA) is the next evolution of building security management designed with a Virtual Point Definition network, integrated peer-to-peer and redundant communications. The FT system is designed to automatically recover regardless of communication or controller failure.

The FT system may be designed with an “Active/Active” or “Active/Inactive” system architecture. If for any reason, a primary controller fails, an alternate controller shall automatically take over the duties of the failed controller. The progression of successors to a faulty controller shall continue to provide security without any degradation in system operations.

The FTAconsists of one or more Fault Tolerant Controllers (FTC) and Door Interface Modules (DIM). The FTCs and DIMs are designed with an Open Standards Operating System utilizing Hydra Protocol to provide the highest level of system operations and reliability. The DIMis currently offered in a Dual DoorModule (DDM) or Single Door Module (SDM).

PCSC’s Hydra Protocol not only maintains communication integrity but also provides a network database manager to control system parameters, access, alarm and output data. Utilizing peer-to-peer communication, the Hydra Protocol communicates system updates with other FTCs within its network.

Changes to data such as: cardholder, input and output statuses are automatically updated among the appropriate FTC. Hydra Protocol also contains a firmware management application to maintain firmware integrity of its DIMs. It maintains the approved firmware and firmware level and automatically updates older versions of DIM firmware, eliminating any security breach or service time.
