LNL-8000-MCOM - Power / Communications Module-Provides RS485 comm & Power to enclosure


Product Overview

All boards in the Lenel M Series have been designed to facilitate the migration of legacy Picture Perfect, FC Wnx, or Secure Perfect Systems to Lenel’s OnGuard System. The Lenel M Series boards provide a one for one, plug compatible, OnGuard ready, replacement for Legacy CASI M5 and M3000 boards. The migration is a straightforward process of powering down the legacy controller, unplugging field wiring from legacy boards, removing legacy boards, inserting new Lenel M Series boards, plugging in field wiring, and powering up new controller which communicates to the OnGuard System.
LNL-8000-MCOM is used to support configuration of controllers that requires a head of line controller and serial downstream controllers. The LNL-8000-M5 is used in each of the downstream controllers. The LNL-8000-M5 performs two functions, first, it accepts plug connector from legacy M5 Power/Comm board (PN:110064001) for controller power, tamper and AC Power Fail inputs. The LNL-8000-M5, makes power available to other boards plugged into the backplane. Second, the LNL-8000-MCOM takes the RS-485 communications from the LNL-3300-M5, and converts it to the local backplane for the Reader Panels (RPs) and Input/Output boards in the local controller with the LNL-8000-MCOM. The RS-485 communications between the LNL-3300-M5 and the LNL-8000-MCOM can reuse the wiring that was previously used by the legacy CASI Controller for serial communicaitons (RS-422) between controllers.

Lenel M Series Boards are Mercury Authentic, which means they are manufactured by and conform to Mercury Security SDK.

Legacy CASI M Series Boards cannot be mixed with Lenel M Series Boards. If converting M5 or M3000 controller to Lenel M Series, then all boards in that controller must be converted to Lenel M Series.
