The Matrix System Gateway is an intelligent Ethernet-to-485 converter/switch that automatically maintains connections between the system’s third-tier intelligent door controllers and second-tier building controller. The gateway’s unattended fail-over capability reroutes all communication to an alternate controller, allowing the system to maintain all high-level access functions despite key component failure. Other fault-tolerance options include installation on separate network segments and the ability to allow building controllers to be shut down in a hot-swap mode for maintenance without affecting the access control system. It also automatically propagates data across the system from the server to the intelligent building controllers.
