The AP-4 is a single door gate controller with a built-in radio receiver that supports up to 339 transmitters and one MGT
For sites that have a single entrance or gate, the AP-4 is the ideal wireless-based access control system. It can be used to remotely activate devices such as gate operators, door strikes, or door operators. Based on the proven AP-1, AP-2 and AP-3 access controllers, the AP-4 is small enough to be mounted within the gate operator.
The AP-4 has a built-in radio receiver. It has a 250 foot range that can be extended even farther with an optional EXA-2000 antenna.
Two relay outputs are provided: one for gate or door access; the other for obstacle control using the MGT, the industry’s only supervised safety edge transmitter. The AP-4 looks for an hourly status transmission from the MGT to report on transmitter functionality, battery condition, and case integrity. If any of those conditions require attention, the AP-4 will alert the user by beeping once every five seconds. The user must then activate the transmitter twice in order for the AP-4 to grant access.
Installation and set-up are simple. The AP-4 operates on 12-24 volts, ac or dc. It can be powered directly from the radio power output of most gate operators. Learning, suspending, or deleting transmitters is as simple as pressing few keys on the AP-4’s built-in keypad. Program data is stored in non-volatile EEPROM; data retention is in excess of ten years, even in the event of a power failure.
The AP-4 is compatible with all MegaCode format transmitters, which come factory programmed with one of over 1,000,000 possible codes, all but eliminating any chance of duplication.
- Ideal for gated communities, parking facilities, and industrial sites.
- Easy to program and use.
- Easy to add, suspend, and delete individual transmitters through programming mode – no transmitter dip switch to set.
- Supports up to 480 block coded transmitters or 239 individual transmitters/wireless keypad entry codes, and supports one fully supervised safety edge transmitter.
