DCM 300 two door controller

Available in both serial and Ethernet options, the DCM 300 is a low cost, intelligent two-door controller range that is designed to interface third-party read heads with the CEM AC2000 access control system.

Offering layers of system resilience, the DCM 300 has an internal database giving full off-line card validation and decision making capability at the point of entry, when host communication is not available.

The DCM 300 supports most third-party access control read heads conforming to the physical Wiegand/Mag Stripe interfaces, covering a range of technologies.

Serial controller option is sDCM 300 & Ethernet controller option is eDCM 300.
