Softcon’s CR390


The CR390 is an intelligent multi-function 2 reader controller, capable of communicating with the Server Software via TCP/IP(CAT5e, wireless, fiber, GSM modem), RS485, RS232, and Modem. It is capable of running as a communication interface, allowing other controllers to run on a RS485 bus underneath it. It has various additional features such as locally managed lift control using output groups. The CR390 controller is capable of interfacing to biometric, proximity, magnetic stripe, infra-red, bar code and many other access control and time and attendance readers
