Apollo System Hardware
Apollo controllers form the basis of the Access Control system, storing the cardholder database and accepting access requests from field devices. Controllers are available supporting up to 96 doors, the highest capacity in the industry.
Reader interfaces provide the connection point for door hardware including readers and locks. In Apollo systems, Reader Interfaces also provide a level of redundancy, storing a local copy of the card database in case of communication failure to the controller.
Apollo systems support a wide variety of readers including proximity, fingerprint, magnetic stripe, hand geometry and more. In addition to Apollo's own readers, most standard readers are supported by the system.
