Continental’s Legacy Panels Continue To Work With Our Latest CardAccess 3000 v.2.6 Software
Continental’s legacy panels continue to support all access control functions for one to four doors and are used in large government facilities and private businesses around the world. Our intelligent, easily configured control panels, i.e., Smarterm, Miniterm and Microterm can store multiple card (bit) formats in its internal memory and allow existing card populations and readers to remain in place. For adding extra features and enhancements, try our field expandable Smarterm panel. Unlike our competitors, these panels will work with our latest software, CardAccess 3000 v.2.6, saving you time and money.

Smarterm, Miniterm and Microterm are reliable, field-tested and will operate as standalone units if server communications are interrupted. Programming does not require server communications to continue, as it automatically stores system transactions in its internal memory. Our controllers accept industry standard Wiegand output devices and supports virtually all card/reader technologies. Proximity, Biometric, Magnetic Stripe, Barcode, Wiegand, Barium Ferrite, Keypad and Smart Readers are easily connected and controlled. Multiple ports can be connected to the CardAccess server for maximum system expansion and multi-stage lightning/transient provides protection and maximum reliability in harsh environments.

For true distributed processing and powerful access control, our controllers may be networked together in a plug-and-play fashion to create a fully expandable system. Up to 63 Smarterm, Miniterm or Microterm’s can be intermixed on the same communications network. Controller communication choices include: hardwire (repeat or multi-drop mode), LAN/WAN, dial-up or fiber optics. For optimal system configuration, our controllers support RS232 and RS422 communication formats. To learn more about our legacy panels, visit or call 1-800-645-9330.
