AAN-100 — 96 Reader Intelligent System Controller

Apollo’s AAN-100 Intelligent System Controller for Access Control and Alarm Monitoring sets the industry standard with support of up to 96 devices (readers, alarm panels, status panels) and memory capacity of 1,240,000 cardholders/65,535 events. The on-board 32-bit processor supports advanced inter-device reactions (Internal Variables) that are stored within the controller’s memory and thus operate without relying on a PC/software host, providing ultra-dependable functions for the highest security applications.  

For fast loading of configuration/cardholder data and reporting of events, the AAN-100 can utilize RS-485, RS-232 or Ethernet communication with available 256-bit AES Rijndael encryption and dual-path communication. Communication to devices is routed through four ports that can support a versatile mix-and-match combination of RS-485, RS-232 and Ethernet communication, all monitored by separate communication status LED’s. 

Forming the base of a tri-level database redundancy system, the AAN-100 interacts with Apollo intelligent field hardware and Apollo’s APACS software or as a developer integration platform, in every case providing a flawless platform for your security.  These strengths have made the AAN-100 the standard for demanding sites such as nuclear power facilities, military installations and major corporations worldwide.
