HID has two lines of VertX controllers: EVO (newer) and Legacy. The newer line of controllers have significantly more processing power and memory than the older line. Both lines of controllers use the same interface modules (V100, V200, V300) that remain unchanged.

In the following tables, we compare the characteristics of the EVO controllers with that of their Legacy counterparts.

VertX platform differences between EVO and Legacy

Characteristics EVO Legacy
Flash memory 256 MB 8 MB
Maximum cardholder capacity 250,000 44,000
Offline cardholder capacity with Security Center1 65,0002 22,0002, 3
Power supply 12 – 24 VDC 12 – 18 VDC
Operating temperature range 32 ° – 120 ° F ( 0 ° – 49 ° C) 32 ° – 122 ° F ( 0 ° – 50 ° C)
Humidity tolerance 5% to 85% non-condensing 5% to 95% non-condensing

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.

3 Up to 125,000 credentials with full memory upgrade.

4 HID states that a V1000 controller can support a maximum of 32 downstream interface modules (16 on each RS-485 serial bus). However, the performance tests run by Genetec Inc. indicate that as a “best practice”, 20 downstream interface modules should not be exceeded (10 per serial bus).
