ENGEA is a control system that manages opening of a safe and any lock boxes in it. A serial connection creates relationships between the safe, individual lock boxes and several ATMs, generating hierarchical interlocks and extensions to the relative opening delays.
ENGEA consists of a “+Sicurezza” main motorized lock, one or more “Skudo120” keypads and, as an option, several “Lock200” motorized locks for managing the lock boxes. The system allows communication with subsystems consisting of “+Sicurezza” locks and “Skudo120” keypads that can be positioned on emergency doors or security doors or on ATMs. Communication is also possible with third party systems.
In ENGEA the “Skudo120” keypad and “+Sicurezza” board dialogue via a fibre optic channel for more protection against theft attempts, preventing disturbances (spikes) able to damage or alter the operation of the board that governs the locks’ opening, from being introduced through the communication channel.
The “Skudo120” keypad’s power is supplied by a dc-dc converter galvanically separated from the main board’s supply. This solution was adopted to prevent the spread of faults.
Communication between devices is through the “CAN bus“ system, chosen for the particular reliability of the communication protocol.
ENGEA is equipped with hardware devices able to recognize corrupted packets and to arrange for their retransmission without involving the management software, ensuring that the correct reception of each single packet is received at the same instant by all devices.
ENGEA provides a second "CAN bus" interface prepared for the installation of a "Cripto200" cryptographic module that allows management of ATMs connected to it with a higher level of security.

Typical applications:
