Sielox, LLC, of Runnemede, New Jersey, has introduced a new hardware product that simplifies network installation. The X-LAN is an Ethernet to RS-485 converter that bridges the gap between standard networks. Ideal for access control installations with Ethernet infrastructure, it reduces installation costs and eliminates the need for extra devices. A main controller is not required, and it handles up to 16 terminal controllers per Ethernet connection. It is compatible with the company’s Pinnacle 6X and works with AC-1500 and AC-1200 controllers.
