Galaxy Control Systems presented its comprehensive line of innovative solutions at this year’s ASIS show in Chicago, in September. Featured introductions included new Systems Galaxy Software and a new dual serial interface that deliver innovative features and integration for new and legacy access control systems while protecting users’ investments in existing hardware and infrastructure.
“Satisfying the needs of customers with superior performance, support and cost efficiency has always been our first priority. This philosophy drives our business model and has been the foundation of our success for over 30 years,” says Robert Laughlin, President, Galaxy Control Systems.
“Our latest introductions here at ASIS 2013 have been engineered with customers’ past, present and future needs in mind so that we can most effectively meet both their technical and financial objectives.”
Leading the new products introduced at ASIS is Galaxy’s System Galaxy Software (v.10.3). The new software, which features a wide range of innovative capabilities, is backwards-compatible and interfaces with legacy Galaxy systems.
System Galaxy Software enables users to add the latest functionality available while maintaining their existing investment in access control infrastructure, and without having to rip and replace entire systems.
Galaxy also introduced the 635 Dual Serial Interface (DSI) for its 600 series Access
Control Panel. Engineered to improve third party integration, enhance user convenience and ensure interoperability with a multitude of manufacturers’ current and legacy hardware, the new DSI board is another example of Galaxy’s commitment to their customers.
The 635 DSI supports wireless reader technology, relay controls, LCD displays and Galaxy 485 Remote DPI modules, with added support for multidrops and more power connections.
For Government applications, Galaxy also featured its CAC Enrolment Solution, which captures information from the Common Access Card (CAC). Galaxy offers support for PIV I, PIV II, TWIC and CAC (Legacy, Transition and Endpoint) cards, along with FIPS 201-compliant controllers configured to accept data formats from 18 to 256 bits, providing unprecedented versatility within the PIV II specification. Galaxy
Control Systems are also certified under the DIACAP provisions, are pre-cleared to operate on the DOD network and have an active DIACAP ATO for both hardware and software.
With every product made in the USA and carrying an unconditional two-year warranty, Galaxy upholds its charter to meet and exceed customers’ expectations. All Government products are also available on the Galaxy GSA schedules 70 and 84.
