Altronix ACM8E converts one (1) 12 to 24 volt AC or DC input into eight (8) independently controlled fuse protected outputs. These power outputs can be converted to dry form “C” contacts. Outputs are activated by an open collector sink or normally open (NO) dry trigger input from an Access Control System, Card Reader, Keypad, Push Button, PIR, etc. ACM8E will route power to a variety of access control hardware devices including Mag Locks, Electric Strikes, Magnetic Door Holders, etc. Outputs will operate in both Fail-Safe and/or Fail-Secure modes. This unit is designed to be powered by one common power source which will provide power for both the board operation and locking devices, or two (2) totally independent power sources, one (1) providing power for board operation and the other for lock / accessory power. The FACP Interface enables Emergency Egress, Alarm Monitoring, or may be used to trigger other auxiliary devices. The fire alarm disconnect feature is individually selectable for any or all of the eight (8) outputs.


  • Wall mount enclosure for indoor use.
  • Dimensions 12.25"W x 15.5"H x 4.5"D (311 mm W x 394 mm H x 114 mm D).
  • 1.125" and 1.375" combination knockouts.

Main Features
