Nedap system insights
Use the following information to understand the basics of how Nedap systems work and know what to expect when migrating from Nedap to a Security Center access control system.
- Large system integration and multi-site support (number of doors, cardholders, and so on)
- High security requirements (global antipassback, two-person rules, and so on)
Nedap integrations and technology
Before migrating, make sure you understand how Nedap integrations work and what technology they use.
- Nedap hardware is proprietary. You must replace the board and connectors; the wiring to and from controllers and readers can be left in place.
- Newer Nedap systems mostly use HID readers. Previous integrations mostly used Nedap readers (RS-485 with AEOS protocol).
- Nedap cabinets are often integrated with deister or Traka lockers.
- Nedap uses MIFARE DESFire card technology. DESFire stores keys in the controller.
- Proximity or 125kHz card technology is no longer frequently used.
- Nedap controllers have PLC functionality. AEmon's State Monitor works like a PLC controller and uses visual programming.
- SAM modules inside the door controllers allow for encryption based on ANSSI guidelines.
- Nedap uses Java on their platform, controllers, and software.
Migration tips for Nedap AEOS Blue devices
The AEOS Blue is Nedap's main line of door controller hardware. The following section provides a brief description of the AEOS Blue devices to assist you in migrating from Nedap to a Security Center access control system.
- AEOS Blue hardware line supports RS-485 protocol for Nedap readers, and Wiegand protocol.
- One AP70803 door controller can handle up to 31 AP7000s interfaces, using the RS-485 BUS at a maximum distance of 1200m.
- Start each system with 1 Synergis™ Cloud Link (SCL).
Each SCL can have a maximum of 32 Mercury LP1502 controllers, and each LP1502 controller can have a maximum of 64 readers, up to a maximum of 256 readers per SCL. The recommended integration is 4 controllers per SCL.
