Question:

We have an access control project in which the integrator is installing a PoE controller system and wants us to install the hardware. I’m looking for 1200 lb mags on a single door with motion detector based REX units. All this is to be powered by the 0.6 Amps at each door. What can we furnish?

Answer:

Most mags need separate power supplies to operate with PoE. The Securitron M62 only draws .25 A (250mA) at 12V DC, and the BEA R2E-100 active infrared sensor draws .2 A (200mA) with the sounder maximized. You did not mention this, but you will probably need to power your reader as well. HID’s ProxPoint Plus draws .75 A (75mA peak). Result adds up to less than your .6 amps available.
