SPRINGFIELD, Mo. and MUNDELEIN, Ill.—Digital Monitoring Products and LifeSafety Power recently announced an integration delivering a customized enclosure that simplifies installing power supply and sub-assemblies for access control.

“A lot of our dealers have told us they like using LifeSafety power supplies and enclosures,” Adam Kinder, product manager for DMP Access Control, said in the announcement. “We’re excited to offer this integration to our dealers. This gives them an additional power and access control solution they’ve been asking for. In combination with our controllers, it’s a solution that requires no modification.”

LifeSafety specializes in smart power solutions and patented remote networking capabilities. Among its access control power systems, now LifeSafety offers the “DCLASS” integrated DMP power system for two to 18 doors. It’s a customized system that’s combined with DMP’s 734/734N Wiegand Interface Modules, all in one compact and secure UL Listed enclosure.

This all-in-one approach minimizes wall space, simplifies installation, and reduces time and labor costs, according to the announcement. Traditionally, access control integrators need three separate cabinets for system power, lock power and access hardware, plus an electrician to wire the cabinet space and each of those power supplies. The DCLASS combines DMP’s access hardware, system power, lock power, and optional network management modules into an optimized wall space footprint.

“Since our modules are covered inside the enclosure, they’re available to order with or without their plastic covers,” Kinder explained. In addition to single and dual-voltage options, he added, “The DCLASS offers a managed option with networked power specifications for live voltage and current reporting, as well as remote battery load testing, output power cycling, and abnormal operation alerts.”

All of the DCLASS power configurations and related technical documents are posted on LifeSafety Power’s website.
