Introductions Include Innovative LINQ™ Network Communication and Control Solution

Altronix, the recognized leader in power and transmission solutions for the professional security industry, is showcasing a number of new and innovative solutions. Highlighted is the company’s LINQ™ Network Communication and Control Solution, which fills the industry void for network communications with critical power supply and distribution devices. Additional introductions include the eBridge200WPM Outdoor Transceiver that delivers greater distance and more power options for IP over coax or CAT5e, UL listed WayPoint Outdoor Power Supplies with enhanced versatility, the FireSwitch108 Intelligent NAC Power Extender with temporal Code 4 CO detection, Entrada2DMK IP Access Control FACP Adapters, and the new Trove™ Enclosure that provides installers with extreme versatility and convenience.

“Altronix has enjoyed continued growth and expansion by delivering technologies and products that solve the power delivery and transmission challenges faced by users and integrators in the field, while staying at the forefront of emerging system trends,” said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corporation. “Our latest introductions reflect this philosophy, and usher in a new generation of power and transmission solutions from Altronix for networked security and surveillance systems.”


Altronix’s new LINQ Network Communication and Control Solution is an innovative software platform that enables comprehensive network communications for critical power supplies and distribution devices at the core of every networked system. The new LINQ series includes: The LINQ Network Integration Dashboard is a powerful yet convenient and intuitive IP communication software solution to remotely monitor, report and control any combination of individual or multiple groups of products across any number of locations and systems. LINQ8PD Intelligent Distribution Modules enable IP communications and control of up to eight analog power supplies and/or distribution devices from Altronix or virtually any other manufacturer. LINQ2 Communication Modules are designed to provide advanced IP communications specifically with Altronix’s versatile eFlow Power/Supply Chargers. All of these products can be used in any combination or stand-alone to implement network communications and/or connectivity.

The new eBridge200WPM Outdoor Transceiver provides the ability to send IP video/data and power at distances up to 300m over Coax, and up to 500m over Ethernet.  When used with the complementary power source and receiver, the unit supports a single Hi-PoE (60W) camera /device or two PoE/PoE+ camera/devices at 100Mbps full duplex. Additional features include: an IP66-NEMA4/4X rated enclosure for outdoor use; built-in IP management, which enables camera reset, monitoring and reporting; and system event notification via email and SNMP trap messages. eBridge200WPM is UL listed in US/Canada and CE approved.

Altronix’s UL listed WayPoint Outdoor Power Supplies provide a robust power solution for PTZ and fixed cameras, heater/blower housings, IR illuminators and virtually any video surveillance or security product that’s exposed to the elements. They’re designed for the harshest environments with IP66 NEMA4/4X rated enclosures with lockable latches, and integral flanges for simplified wall or pole mounting. A variety of models are available with selectable or simultaneously 24VAC or 28VAC outputs, and 12VDC or 24VDC outputs.

The FireSwitch108 Intelligent NAC Power Extender delivers more NAC capacity and  features. Enhancements include CO Temporal Code 4 (NFPA720) for Gentex®, Potter and System Sensor® devices, and internally selectable end of line resistor values to facilitate ease of installation. Features include selectable (8) Class B and (4) Class A NACs or auxiliary power outputs; browser based remote power management; LCD display status monitoring; and 10 amp maximum output.

The Entrada2DMK IP Access FACP Adapter provides a supervised fire alarm interface for network access controllers. They route PoE+ to the network access controller, and provide 12VDC or 24VDC for up to two strikes/mag locks. The FACP interface releases power to the locking devices, maintaining power to the networked access controller/readers over a single CAT5 or higher cable. The Entrada2DMK can also be used to remotely power and control various other devices such as magnetic gates.

Trove™ Enclosures allow installers to easily combine various power supplies, access controllers and accessory boards on removeable backplanes and the interior door of the unit. This enables installers to easily configure power and access control products and pretest them prior to on-site installtion. Trove’s removeable backplanes are available for Altronix power supplies, Mercury or Vertx/HID access controllers and accessory boards.
