product overview


DriverControl® is a network controller for connection between Biodit’s wired biometric devices and Biodit Management Software.

DriverControl® can operate with up to 2 biometric devices for controling one door bilateral or two doors unilaterally. It has 4 programmable relays and 2 programmable digital inputs. DriverControl® can also controll electronic locks, automatic doors, parking barriers, turnstiles. Through the device it can be controlled electrical appliances such as lighting, air conditioning, ventilation systems and elevators.

The communication with other controllers and specialized software is conducted via the built-in Ethernet network card linked to an existing or newly built LAN / WAN network.

Main Characteristics & Technical Features
