Access control specialist TDSi has launched a new family of EXprox² proximity and EXsmart² MIFARE® readers, extending its proven range.
The whole range is available with or without keypads, providing users with a number of options: PIN only; card only or PIN and card operation. When specified with a keypad, the readers deliver additional ‘have and know’ security, whereby the user must both present their card and validate it with their unique PIN before access is granted.
Each keypad reader is supplied with a tactile, blue-backlit key pad and both a light grey and graphite-coloured cover, which simply clips on for ease of installation. All units are fully encapsulated making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, with maximum protection from both water and dust ingress, and the keypad itself follows DDA compatibility conventions - with a ‘pip’ on key number 5.
Featuring both Magnetic Clock and Data and 26-bit Wiegand outputs, the readers allow the read in/ read out functionality of TDSi’s MICROgarde controller to be realised on both doors.
To aid both speed and ease of installation, each reader, whether specified with or without a keypad, now has a square form factor, making them suitable for fitting into a standard electrical (MK) back box. As a result, housings may be sunk and pre-wired with the reader unit itself fitted as and when required.
Stock of the new readers is now available; for more information, contact TDSi’s sales support team on +44 (0) 1202 724 999 or visit www.tdsi.co.uk.
