PACOM has just been awarded a Benchmark Innovation Award for their 8003 Hybrid Controller. Benchmark is a highly-respected security magazine out of the UK. Award winners are chosen by Benchmark’s editorial team, there are no applications, no fees, no voting.
The PACOM 8003 is an intelligent control board, which can operate in a standalone capacity within smaller or remote environments, or as part of a fully integrated access control and alarm system for larger buildings and multi-site applications with more complex needs. It is suited to a wide range of applications, protecting entire premises or delivering protection for smaller niche projects.
“The Benchmark Innovation Awards scheme recognizes and rewards innovations which deliver real benefits to installers, integrators and end users. Devices or systems must either deliver a new concept or different approach which is both effective and realistic, or should include a specific feature or function which ranks as innovative.”
Satellite sites, such as utility substations or distributed facilities, can enjoy a reduced cost of installation; something made simpler by the small footprint of the device. It can also be used for communications field devices or automated teller machines (ATMs) in banks or retail spaces, providing a high level of protection against events by creating alarm notifications in case of communication outages, power loss or critical component failure.
