Access Control Software
New DSX-AES256 software from Dallas-based DSX Access Systems, Inc.
, contains government approved AES-256 bit encryption technology that can be implemented systemwide. Encryption capabilities are built into the software and every field controller. Communications to each location can optionally be encrypted with a unique encryption key assigned by the customer for communicating with that location’s field controllers. The software encrypts communications to all panels in that location without the use of add-on devices. Because the encryption technology is inherent to the software and field controllers, implementation is easy. All 1040 Series and 1022 controllers can be flash-upgraded to the AES-256 bit version.

ComNet Communication Networks
of Danbury, Connecticut, has introduced a new device that allows Ethernet- based equipment to be connected over nontraditional media. The all-new ComWorx CNFE1CL1MC accepts common 10/100TX Ethernet data and transports it over common 75-ohm coaxial cable or twisted-pair telephone wire, so existing infrastructure can be used for new IP network installations where cable or wiring is already in place for surveillance cameras or telephone systems. Ethernet over coaxial cable or twisted pair also supports extended distances compared to traditional Cat5/6 cable. The device can extend distances between devices to as much as 500 meters on coaxial cable or up to 3000 meters on twisted pair. The output port is a standard BNC connector or terminal block and the input port is a standard RJ-45 connector. Booth 24135, Circle 428
