The AXB-PCCOM:

Allows a PC (Macintosh, IBM-compatible,or otherRS-232device) to emulate up to four AXlink bus devices.

Allows you to create custom PC software applications (conforming to the AXB-PCCOMprotocols) to control AXCESS systems.

Can be located up to 3,000 feet from AXCENT, AXCENT2, or Axcess card cage. This overcomes theRS-232distance limitation of 50 feet or less.

Does not require special Axcess programming to work on AXlink. In programming, treat AXB-PCCOMas a standard Axcess panel.
