Overview


Softcon develops and manufactures its controllers in-house. In touch with local and international market requirements and trends, Softcon aims to be at the cutting edge in the development of Access Control technology.

Hardware products are all primarily micro-processor based, ranging from single and multi-door access controllers, vending controllers and cash loading units to a variety of communication drivers and converters. These include fiber optic, RS232/RS422, Wiegand/RS422 and serial/ Wiegand/ data clock/ touch. Multiple Communication methods such as TCP/IP (CAT5e, wireless, fiber, GSM modem), RS485, RS232, and 56K Modem is available depending on the hardware model. Softcon is continually developing on its hardware products.

CR394 Controller (I/O Controller – Expander)


Controller can function as an I/O Expander to controllers with a RS485 communication port or function stand-alone.

System Functions:

  • Stand-alone or system integrated controller
  • Expander to controllers
  • Token- Card- Finger reader to output control
  • Inputs (contacts, temperature, etc.) to output control
  • Real Time Clock, time-out and counting control
  • CR393 Controller (Internet-Of-Things Controller)


    Applications

  • Access
  • Cash Loader
  • Comms Interface
  • Geyser Management
  • Intrusion
  • Irrigation
  • Lift Control
  • PLC
  • Vending
  • System Functions

  • Stand-alone or system integrated
  • Token- Card- Finger reader to output control
  • Inputs (contacts, temperature, etc.) to output control
  • Real Time Clock, time-out and counting control
  • Vending cashless control: I/O, Access, MDB/Exec protocols
  • Vending machine management DDCMP/DEX/UCS protocols
  • Cash loader
  • On-board www
  • Integration / configuration of all functions to requirement
  • CR391M Controller


    The CR391 Controller functions as an Access, Vending, I/O, Cash loader and LAN (communications) controller, positioning it Softcon's flagship hardware product. It is fully backwards compatible with legacy controllers.

    The CR391M is essentially a protocol converter. Available communication interfaces includes 5 RS232 / RS485 ports, 2 Wiegand Reader ports, 100 Mbps TCP/IP, TTL, SPI and USB 2.

    The CR391M is 10 times faster processing speed, 16 times more memory capacity and 10 faster TCP/IP communication speed than the CR390. All the standard CR390 Access Control features is incorporated into the CR391M leveraging off the latest Microchip technology for superior performance and functionality.

  • Vending Controller


    The Vending Controller is an intelligent multi-function1 reader controller, capable of communicating with the Server Software via TCP/IP(CAT5e, wireless, fiber, GSM modem) or Modem. The controller interfaces with standardized MBD, BDV and Exec Vending protocols commonly used on Vending machines.

    Universal Interface


    The Universal Interface is used in a variety of applications like Point of Sale or Printing solutions, where a user needs to be identified using Biometric or card technology. The Universal interface will collect the information from the reader, convert it to a format that the system it is linked to can understand, and pass it through.
