HID has two lines of Edge controllers: EVO (newer) and Legacy. The newer line of controllers can take an optional 2nd reader and have enhanced power efficiency (12 to 24 VDC), therefore, can support 12 V or 24 V locks.

In the following series of tables, we compare the characteristics of the EVO controllers to their Legacy counterparts.

1 In Security Center, a cardholder can have multiple credentials. A cardholder with two credentials is counted as two by HID.

2 With Security Center, the unit's cardholder capacity is lower than its maximum cardholder capacity. This is partly because extra memory is used as cache to allow unit synchronization to be performed without affecting normal operation.
