Kantech offers network communication devices including IP Link modules, converters, and modems - everything you need to secure entry and exit at your facilities.
Kantech IP Link makes it easy and affordable to manage your Kantech access control system over a network. IP Link manages polling of door controllers and communicates with the EntraPass software only when an event has occurred for lower bandwidth usage. IP Link is easy to set up and configure. Use an EntraPass workstation, a web browser, or the KT-Finder, an intuitive standalone application designed to locate and configure the IP Link.
The USB-485 Communication Interface is a protocol converter used to connect a PC's USB port to the RS-485 input on your Kantech controller KT-1/KT-200/KT-300/KT-400. The maximum bus length is 1,200 m (4,000 ft) when using an Ethernet Grade 3, unshielded, two twisted pair cable (Belden # 1227A recommended).
The VC-485 Communication Interface is an RS-232/RS-485 protocol converter primarily used to connect a PC to a KT-100/ KT-200/ KT-300 controller. The maximum bus length is 5 km (18,000 ft, when line repeater is used) and 1,200 m (4,000 ft) for EntraPass when using Ethernet Grade 3, unshielded, two twisted pair cable (Belden # 1227A recommended). Two VC-485's may be connected back-to-back to be used as a line repeater in order to extend the RS-485 communications bus.
You can choose either one of the two modem options that allows you to connect via a host site or a remote site.
