M5-IC Intelligent Controller



M5-IC Intelligent Controller


M5-IC is an intelligent control device for the replacement of the Casi PX, PXN and PXNplus CPU controller. As with the entire Mercury M5 Bridge family of controllers, the M5-IC is built with a matching form factor to the Casi Micro5 line of access control hardware allowing a fast "screwdriverless" change over and easy migration of a Casi client infrastructure to any Authentic Mercury software partner.

Built to manage up to 64 readers, this panel is capable of supporting the family of M5 Bridge products in a retro fit of any Casi hardware system. Additionally, the Ethernet enabled M5-IC has the capability to monitor up to 3 additional Mirco5 enclosures on a RS485 data bus.  The M5-IC possesses all the firmware functions available in the Authentic Mercury controller platform and ensures every end user complete compatibility to all forthcoming system functionality Mercury Security has to offer.


Application Notes

The M5-IC is an integral component in the M5 Bridge family approach to migrate any Micro5 hardware legacy to the flexible, feature rich Mercury access hardware. This ensures the customer an Open future based on Authentic Mercury controllers.
