Communications Devices

Cansec manufactures a variety of RS-485 communications devices ranging from USB to network devices. These options provide dealers the flexibility to choose a communications device that best fits the project requirements.

IP CommunicationsCansec's CanLan II TCP/IP Controller is a cost-effective solution that makes it easy to network-enable Cansec's CP40, H1000, SmartLock door controllers and Zodiac Max reader over an existing Ethernet network. The CanLan II solution allows the existing network cable structure to be utilized in lieu of installing new and expensive communication cable. The CanLan II controller is equipped with RS-485 connectors as well as an RJ45 network interface for a connection to a network switch. Each unit comes with easy-to-use software that allows the installer to configure the CanLan II controller with an IP address, subnet mask, and gateway.

The configurations may be saved to a binary file and restored at any time. Once configured, the unit can be installed on the Ethernet network and connected to Cansec controllers via the RS-485 connector.

Unlike other off-the-shelf devices, CanLan II handles all supervision and device polling locally to Cansec CP40 or H1000 controllers. This unique feature eliminates any concern of bandwidth usage where other devices will require bandwidth for continuous polling even during periods of inactivity. Because Cansec's Maestro, Hurricane, SmartLock and Zodiac Max systems support IP protocol, no additional redirector software is required to connect to CanLan II controllers.

The significant cost savings and value added features make CanLan II the ultimate solution for adding Cansec controllers to existing local or wide area networks.
