Comelit-PAC security range is launched


Comelit-PAC is expanding its PAC Access Control Range with the launch of the security 511DCi IP One Door Controller.

This product comes with high security as standard and the renowned quality that is to be expected from the company that pioneered proximity access control.

The new PAC IP single Access Door Controller from the global security specialist has been designed with equal capability of the unrivalled 512 DCi 2 door controller, with the innovative advantage of supporting one door rather than two, on either a read in/read out or read in/request to exit basis.

Available installation-ready in either an Enclosure with 50W PSU, or as a DIN Mount option, it is fully integrated into a PAC eco-system.

It supports a wide range of integrations with third party products and readers and has been specifically designed to work with alarm, fire safety and building systems.

Launching the range Steve Riley, PAC GDX Division Director said: “We’re thrilled to bring to market our 511 DCi single door controller.

“This is an exciting launch for Comelit-PAC, recognising our incredible commitment and investment into research and development, and ensuring we present products with mutual benefit to our complete customer base, not least the time, resource and cost savings that can be achieved.

“At Comelit-PAC we’ve listened carefully to installers, distributors, and specifiers who were all explicit in the need for an alternative single door controller.

“One that would allow them to be more competitive in today’s challenging market conditions with a solution that can deliver superb features, strong reliability, and high security as standard.”

He added: “Our new 1 Door Controller has been designed to specifically address this and offer an unrivalled proposition to our customers and the market in general.

“Coming with all the feature-rich specifications you would expect from PAC Access Control, it’s a solution that is quick and easy to design, quote, and install.

“It also means PAC can be utilised both for new installations and the retrofit of any other existing systems utilising the existing cabling and reader infrastructure. All of this and delivered with a price point that will certainly make Security Installers pay attention.”

The 511 DCi 1 Door Controller supports a vast range of reader, card and token formats, including PAC OPS – PAC’s market leading Anti-Cloning Technology.


It has also been designed with inbuilt intelligence for offline working continuity, presenting powerful reliability, backed with a long-life and five year warranty.

As standard, this 1 door controller comes with PAC’s exclusive One Touch Test feature to allow single engineer commissioning, and a five second test confirming all cabling between the controller, reader, and lock is correct and working.

Key features include its expansion capability via either additional network points or by utilising PAC’s 485 Bus with 512 DC controllers allowing up to 47 doors from one IP point locally.

Overall, the company sayd that a PAC Access Control System can support more than 2,000 Doors, and up to 75,000 Cardholders, making it suitable for any installations from a single door all the way through large enterprise level systems.

Steve added: “Our capability to work from initial design with distributors and specifiers through to installation, where we are always conscious of simplifying the process to encourage installers to offer this smart technology, have been meticulous.

Even after work programmes are complete, we have ensured monitoring capability to guarantee continued high security. It all comes together to show how we are committed to our high levels of service and for all of our customers to feel we are “with you always.”
