ProdataKey's Aux 8 Brings New Options For PDK System Expansion

Draper, UT | March 9, 2023: ProdataKey (PDK), manufacturer of the leading cloud access control platform built for mobile, continues to grow its line of Red high-security access control hardware with the introduction of Red Aux 8. Aux 8 is an input/output board designed to expand the footprint of PDK systems by conveniently extending support to auxiliary devices that require control and monitoring. Door position sensors, motion sensors, alarm intrusion sensors, elevator controls, push buttons, and more can be connected to the board's eight inputs and eight outputs through wet or dry contact relays to create a more comprehensive, site-wide solution. It can also connect to electric strikes and mag locks, bringing access control to doors that don't require a reader.

Built with PDK Red technology, Aux 8 has built-in Ethernet connectivity and self-discovery to simplify IP configuration and functionality. Like other devices in the Red lineup, it includes supervised connectivity, power, and health monitoring. Wireless and PoE++ communication is available with the PDK wireless or PDK PoE++ module kits. Aux 8 comes within its own enclosure, but is also available as an expander board that fits within the fully customizable Red Max. Use multiple boards to create a completely scalable solution.

"Since launching our Red line of high-security hardware last year, our customers are loving its flexibility, convenience, hardened security, and affordability. The new Aux 8 brings all those benefits to a broader set of applications,"

said Brach Bengtzen, PDK Director of Marketing.

"It's the latest example of how we continue to create technology that enhances our products and the products of our technology partners."

Aux 8 begins shipping March 20, 2023. See it on display at ISC West in Las Vegas, PDK Booth 30016, or visit to learn more.
