The Wiegand Wireless Bridge (ES004) is
a substitute for hard-wiring any standard
Wiegand protocol. With "Bunker Busting"
wireless technology, the system can transmit Wiegand data and/or a relay signal up
to one mile with obstructions and 50 miles
plus line-of-sight!
"Considering the price point of this stable
technology, installers may include this as a
standard installation method over wire. In
the past, wireless was considered a 'contingency' should running conduit be too expensive or out of the question all together. Now,
utilizing a 'bridge' may be less expensive
than wire and labor required to complete
most jobs," says Zach Eichenberger, director of marketing for Controlled Products.
Feature sets include one Wiegand input,
two relay outputs (wet or dry), request to exit,

CONTROLLED PRODUCTS ADDS THE
NEW OPTEX OVS-01GT SENSOR TO ITS
BEST-IN-CLASS LINEUP OF PRODUCTS
The OVS-01GT from OPTEX is designed
to reliably detect the presence of a stationary
or moving vehicle while also having the ability to ignore pedestrians. It also eliminates
the hassles associated with the installation
of a ground loop. No more concrete cutting
required. The OVS-01GT is designed to be
mounted 2 to 3 feet off the ground and can
detect both small and large vehicles.
In security gate applications, it is important that the sensor only detect vehicles
and ignore human movement similar to
a ground loop. The OVS-01GT has five
selectable menu setting options to ignore
human movement.
With the OVS-01GT there is no need to
stop traffic through the driveway during
installation. It mounts quickly and easily
and wires directly to the gate operator. No
additional loop detector is required. There is
no need for special programmers. A simple-
to-use menu with visual indicators provides
a simple and quick installation.

and a door monitor input. All of this information feeds back to the controller for authorization of the credential and is captured in the
audit trail. A sealed 12-volt battery can be
connected to the integrated charge controller for battery backup. Kits come with 9-volt
batteries for quick and easy field testing prior
to installation ensuring range needs are met.

"Installing dealers have an opportunity
to lower the overall cost of installation with
Sure-Fi. With rising costs of copper and the
competitive world of bid work, this product
can make earlier adopters stand out from
the competition. We are excited to add this
product to the line-up," says Scott Neeley, vice
president of sales for Controlled Products.

"This technology solves many problems
for our installing dealers. Increased regulations over the collection of water and limiting air born silica particles increase the
cost and pain associated with standard loop
installations. In some cases loops simply
cannot be installed due to poor road conditions or existing subterranean infrastructure including post tension cables, etc. We
are excited to offer this revolutionary new

product to our client base," says Jim Lema,
east area manager for Controlled Products
Systems Group. ■
