VertX EVO V2000 Controller

 Data Sheet


The HID VertX products provide a complete and fully featured hardware/firmware infrastructure for OEM access control software host systems, communicating via industry standard TCP/IP protocol, over 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, or the Internet. It can also interface with a Windows® DLL. The V2000 boasts a 32-bit RISC processor running the Linux Operating System. On-board flash memory allows program updates to be downloaded via the network. The V2000 connects to two access control card readers via Wiegand or Clock-and-Data interface controlling either one or two doors. This architecture takes advantage of the existing corporate LAN and the existing CAT-5 cable.

Power Supply Requirements

160 mA @ 12-18 VDC (with no readers connected)

Recommended: Supervised linear power supply with battery backup, input surge protection, and AC Fail and battery low contact outputs. V2000 can supply 350 mA @ 12 VDC to two connected readers. Separate supervised DC supply with battery back-up recommended for door locking or relay activated devices or for HID MaxiProx readers.


Cable Distance

TCP/IP – 300 feet (100 m) to next device using Category 5 cable, Alpha 9504C or 9405F

Wiegand – 500 feet (150 m) to reader using ALPHA 1299C, 22AWG, 9-conductor, stranded, overall shield. (Fewer conductors needed if all control lines are not used)

Input Circuits – 500 feet (150 m), 2-conductor, shielded, using ALPHA 1292C (22AWG) or Alpha 2421C (18AWG)

Output Circuits – 500 feet (150 m), 2-conductor, using ALPHA 1172C (22AWG) or Alpha 1897C (18AWG)

Minimum wire gauge depends on cable length and current requirements.
