OSDP adoption solutions

OSDP adoption solutions Logo

Cypress offers a line of products to simplify the implementation of the Open Supervised Device Protocol.

Ask about the original Cypress award-winning OSDP-Wiegand converter and the in-panel interface.

The Open Supervised Device Protocol, or OSDP™, is the Security Industry Association's access control protocol which is replacing Wiegand for improved entrance security, 2-way communication, interoperability, remote reader maintenance and other benefits. OSDP earned IEC certification as an international access control standard in 2020.

Wireless Handheld Readers (HHR Series)

Wireless Handheld Readers (HHR Series) Logo

Credential readers are essential to access control systems, so why limit them to the wall?

The Cypress Handheld Reader communicates wirelessly through its base unit with your access controller, allowing the securing of additional entrances or establishing checkpoints beyond main entrances. Wireless readers can be used to badge in staff who have undergone temperature or PPE checks. Useful for random challenges, as well as credential checks in security booths, in trucks and aboard buses. The Handheld Reader is further recommended for mustering and emergency assembly points.

The handheld unit may be worn by a security officer, and set to perform a function, such as triggering an alarm or opening a door, at the touch of a button.

Save money instead of completely replacing incompatible equipment, with the Cypress Multi-Format Data Converter. The Data Converter translates numerous reader technology outputs into nearly any other standard or proprietary format, for dozens of field-selectable translations. Recommended for connecting dissimilar card, tag, badge and biometric readers. Custom Data Converters are also available.

Wiegand Splitters & Routers

Wiegand Splitters & Routers Logo

The CVX-OPTW Wiegand Splitter connects 2 readers with one panel using the same Wiegand port, or connects 1 reader with 2 panels sharing the same data. It can also be used between devices with different Wiegand voltage levels.

Also available is the Intelligent Wiegand Router, which can be custom-engineered to connect a reader with 2 panels and route data to the appropriate panel. The Intelligent Wiegand Router is recommended for multi-tenant applications.

Suprex® Reader-Extenders

Suprex® Reader-Extenders Logo

When installing a credential reader far from an access controller, or when cable is already in place, a Suprex® Reader-Extender saves time, money, and reduces mess.

Use a Suprex along with existing RS-485, Ethernet, or Fiber Optic, or connect wirelessly. Suprex models are recommended as alternatives to using a second control panel. Specific recommended uses include:

Wireless: Use when installing readers at sites across parking lots, railroad tracks, or in settings where it is undesirable to trench or where minimal disruption is preferred, such as buildings with historical significance or those which contain asbestos.

Fiber Optic: Use in desert, lightning-prone or corrosive environments, or when greater distance is desired.

RS-485: Use at sites where RS-485/2-wire is available, or in elevators and at sites where high immunity to electrical noise under adverse conditions is needed.

Ethernet: Plug Suprex Central & Remote units into routers / switches to install readers anywhere on an existing network, or connect directly with Ethernet crossover cable.
