TZ Centurion Bridge
IP Access To The TZ Centurion™ system
The TZ Centurion Bridge provides the IP gateway to the TZ Centurion™ rack access control system, and provides power and communications to the range of TZ locking devices, sensors and readers. The TZ Centurion™ devices connect to the TZ Centurion™ Bridge using standard structured CAT5e / CAT6 cabling up to 100m. Each TZ Centurion™ Bridge IP gateway requires just one IP address, as communication to the connected devices in achieved using RS-485. The TZ Centurion™ network can be operated as a stand-alone system using the integrated TZ Web Client or as part of a multi-TZ Centurion™ Bridge network managed by TZ Centurion™ Server, or through integration with a third party access management database via SNMP.
TZ Web Client
The TZ Web Client is embedded into each TZ Centurion™ Bridge unit and provides the capability to:
- Setup and configure devices.
- User and RFID setup and permissions.
- Alarm configurations for sensors.
- Downloadable event and alarm logging.
- Device status control panel.
- IP and network configuration.
- Configure SNMP control and monitoring.
For larger installations of multiple TZ Centurion™ Bridge units, or where more analytical data is required, there is the TZ Centurion™ Server software.
