LAS VEGAS, Nevada — The OSDP COMSET Configuration Tool, manufactured by Cypress Integration Solutions of Lapeer, Michigan, was named best in Design, Diagnostic and Installation Tools in the New Products and Solutions Awards at ISC West 2023. The awards program, hosted by the Security Industry Association, recognizes innovative physical security solutions.
Introduced in December 2022, the Cypress OTT-2100 is a portable standalone tool used to configure OSDP readers in the field, and diagnose the state of the OSDP communication between the reader and the controller. Configuration is a necessary step in installing readers using the Security Industry Association’s Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP), which replaces Wiegand as the industry’s access control standard.
“Tools, such as the OTT-2100, will help the industry better understand SIA’s OSDP protocol and make its adoption less daunting,” said Jacob LeRoy, Senior Sales & Development Manager for Cypress. “The OTT-2100 automatically finds the baud rate and uses the broadcast address, so you don’t have to know the current settings of the device. You literally just plug it in and go.”
The COMSET Tool’s OSDP polarity-switching feature changes the polarity of the OSDP connection until it establishes communication with the OSDP reader, meaning the tool has to be plugged in only once.
Configuring device addresses and baud rates is simply accomplished using DIP switches. Three RGB LEDs display status of configuration and OSDP communication, and a built-in listening mode is used to monitor whether the OSDP communication session session is functioning normally. The tool is powered by the included 3V coin cell battery (CR2032). Learn more about the OSDP COMSET Tool at CypressIntegration.com/OSDP/OTT-2100. See the SIA award announcement at bit.ly/NPSatISCW23.
About OSDP: Developed under the leadership of SIA’s OSDP Working Group, OSDP is an international IEC standard that replaces Wiegand and improves interoperability among access control and security products. Along with interoperability, OSDP is preferred for its encryption, authentication, supervision, 2-way communication and functionality. SIA recommends broad adoption of OSDP, especially for high-security settings. Learn more about OSDP at https://www.securityindustry.org/industry-standards/open-supervised-device-protocol.
