    The AP-5’s programmable relays make it suitable for environments where you need to control more than one entry, such as a vehicular and a pedestrian gate. The new model also features a programmable access relay activation time, from one to 120 seconds. For swing and slide gates, up to six Linear Model MGT safety edge transmitters that can be assigned for entrapment detection to trigger obstacle outputs.

    The AP-5 also is good for use in environments where RF noise or wireless signal interference can be a problem. The controller features a built-in, high-sensitivity, narrowband 318-MHz super heterodyne receiver with an external antenna that can pick up signals from a Linear MegaCode® block-coded transmitter from up to 500 feet away. A whip antenna is supplied as standard, or Linear’s EXA-2000 directional antenna and EXA-1000 omni-directional antenna are available as options for improved performance.

    Each AP-5 supports up to 480 Linear MegaCode® factory block-coded and custom block-coded transmitters. Each of the 480 remote transmitters can be programmed with just a few keystrokes, and since there are no dipswitches to set, it is easy to add and suspend transmitters. Including Linear’s MDKP exterior wireless keypads as part of the access control system means you can use any combination of up to 238 individual transmitters and/or MDKP keypad entry codes.
