• Extra software and hardware filtering, including “Inductive Kickback Protection”, to help eliminate spikes' caused by powerful electric and magnetic door release
  • Self-resetting, electronic fuses that restore power once the problem has gone away, unlike traditional glass fuses where a 'spike' can cause the door to remain open or locked until an engineer visits
  • Remote ON/OFF control option allows connected doors/products to be controlled manually or by timers.
  • PCB-only option enables a unit to be installed in the same cabinet as door controllers

Most Dycon power supply units are suitable for use in access control systems but some have additional futures that make them especially able to overcome some of the hazards asssociated with many sysems

Why do 4 out of 5 top UK access makers choose Dycon?

An access control system depends on the reliability of a  power supply unit to open/close doors whenever a valid card or token is offered. When a power supply unit fails to deliver that power , often because an electrical 'spike' from the electric or magnetic door release has blown a fuse , the door remains firmly closed.  Card-holders become frustrated, doors get pushed and pulled and even permanently propped open until an engineer can visit the site and, in most cases, simply replace a traditional glass fuse! Dycon access units, available in 12VDC and 24VDC versions, use self-resetting electronic fuses and power is restored quickly and without the need for an engineer to call.

This is just one reason why 4 out of 5 of the UK's top access control manufacturers use Dycon Power Solutions, either OEM versions inside their controllers or recommend their use as stand-alone units.

  • Dycon's ability to remotely switch ON or OFF the power providing automatic door release or locking when required
  • The units' quick and easy status monitoring, with LED displays to show Battery fault, AC power status and any problem within the unit itself. Some models have outputs that enable these indications to be send to control rooms and service desks, further reducing potential system downtime
  • Tremendous electricity savings during operation with at least 131KWh of electricity saved per 1A power supply, this can mean significant savings in buildings where you might have 10 or more doors.
