BiTSTREAM Page

The BiTSTREAM PoE family allows an installer to power an access control system exclusively through PoE power, eliminating the need for field wiring and AC drops. BiTSTREAM's unique Fire Over Ethernet (FoE) feature allows egress on fire alarms through a single centralized fire alarm connection.

BiTSTREAM Features

  • BX50 Fire Over Ethernet (FoE) - When using the BT500 in combination with one or more BX50s, a central fire alarm connection at the BT500 can be used to provide fire alarm disconnect over the ethernet connection, eliminating the need for a fire alarm connection at each door.
  • BX75 Local Fire alarm disconnect - the BX75 uses a traditional fire alarm connection at each BX75. The BX75 is not compaitble with FoE.
  • BT500 Central Battery Charging - The BT500 has an on-board battery charger for centralized SLA battery backup without burdening the rack's UPS system
  • BX50 & BX75 Local Battery Charging - the BX power supplies provide a local battery charger compatible with traditional SLA or newer Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) batteries.
  • Network Managed - The BT500 is fully network managed, allowing monitoring of voltage, current, and power per zone, battery monitoring, and individual or batch zone shutdown for resetting frozen devices. Compatible with MSM Enterprise.

BiTSTREAM midspan injectors provide power and pass data to PoE compliant devices, such as IP cameras, door locks, IR illuminators and other access control edge devices.
Features include: 8 or 16 ports at 90W/port, remote management via LAN/WAN, plug and play operation, remote PoE shutdown per port or all ports simultaneously, and 10/100/1000BaseT Gigabit support. A built-in fire alarm connection provides Fire Over Ethernet control for BX50 PoE Access Control power Supplies.
BiTSTREAM midspans also include a 48V battery charger for cost effective back-up power vs traditional backup methods.
BiTSTREAM midspans are housed in a 1U rack mountable metal enclosure and have a 100 to 240V universal AC input.

BX Series power supplies provide 12 and 24VDC system and lock power to PoE devices such as access panels, locking devices, readers, REX devices, cameras, and IR illuminators from a PoE source.
BX50 power supplies work with the BT500's Fire Over Ethernet (FoE) model to allow fire alarm disconnect from one central fire alarm connection at the BT500 midspan, eliminating the need for a fire alarm connection at each locking device.

BX Series power supplies provide local battery backup using low-cost SLA batteries, or newer-technology Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) batteries.
