Mercury Security Single Door PoE IP Access/Control Controller

The E-EP1501 is an embedded IP networkable access/controller unit designed to control a single door or physical barrier such as a turnstyle. Manufactured by Mercury Security, it is part of a range of the most widely used access/control hardware products in the world. This is due to it’s open architecture, reliability and high security.

More than 15 IP software manufacturers currently support Mercury hardware ensuring your hardware investment is safe.


  • Single Door Control
  • 2-Wire RS485 Reader Connection
  • Support for 8 x Programmable Card Types
  • 2 x General Purpose IOs
  • 2 x Relay Outputs
  • AES 128-Bit Encryption
  • Supervised or Unsupervised Inputs
  • PoE or 12~24VDC Operation
All the on-board I/O necessary to control one access/control door is built-into the E-EP1501. Readers, keypads, and readers with integrated keypads that use Wiegand, clock and data, or RS-485 signaling are supported. Inputs and outputs can be assigned to door-related functions or as general purpose I/O. Inputs can be unsupervised or supervised using configurable end-of-line resistance values. Outputs are implemented using form-C (NO/NC) relays and can be used for fail-safe or fail-secure lock operation.
The E-EP1501 is network ready and is managed by a host computer running IP access/control software. The host computer downloads credential, command, and configuration data to the E-EP1501 and uploads event and status change information for display to an operator. Once the E-EP1501 has been configured it can run independently should it lose its connection with the host computer. The E-EP1501 will store events in battery-backed RAM when it loses its host connection so that they can be uploaded to the host when the connection is restored.
