This standalone single-door access system offers proximity fob access
control for your door for up to 999 users, and with a smart, compact reader head unit. Furthermore, there is the option to add a second reader to the system, allowing you to create a 'prox in, prox out' scenario requiring presentation of the proximity fob to the reader to both enter and exit through the door.
The compact fob readers measure just 60mm x 60mm, and are supplied with an optional faceplate to screw on over the housing when installing should you wish to make it more noticeable. The reader houses a small sounder and bi-colour LED
indicator, creating both an audio and visual alert for the user of a successful
(or failed) access attempt.
At times, a 'weak point' of an access control system can be the reader head needing to be sited on the outside of a building, exposed to the elements and as such at risk of failure due to water or dust ingress. That's not a problem with this system! A distinct advantage here is that these readers are fully suitable for external use, boasting a fantastic IP68 rating. This is the highest achievable ingress-protection rating,
confirming that the readers are 100% sealed against dust, and also
watertight against complete, continued submersion in water. Please be aware however that the controller unit is not suitable for external use, and will require siting internally. Of course this does have benefits as it ensures the control unit is at less risk from tampering.
Inputs & Outputs
Whilst the control unit and reader are both quite compact, don't let looks deceive you! The control unit can be configured to do more than simply register information from the reader. Firstly it has two relay outputs meaning you can use one to trigger your electric locking mechanism, and you
can then trigger a sounder or any other device you may wish
to trigger upon granting access. Secondly, there are two inputs available, as such
allowing for the use of a push-to-exit button, a trigger from a fire
alarm panel, or any other exit devices you may wish to have trigger the
reader to unlock your door. Examples of this includes a door contact input, which
can sound an alarm in the event that the door is not returned to its
locked state within a programmable timespan.
12-24 volts on either AC or DC, this system has a wide scope of
installation possibilities, with suitability for use with a massive
range of electronic locking and access control equipment - the majority
of which fall into the realms of 12-24v AC/DC.
Variable door release times & door alarm timer
Depending on how far from the door the reader head is situated will determine how long you wish the door release time to be i.e. the duration that the electronic lock mechanism or
electric strike release will be triggered for. With this particular system this can be varied
between 1 second and 9 seconds giving the opportunity to set it to suit the circumstances of your location.
If you have a door contact wired into one of the controller inputs, the alarm timer can be triggered. As such, this will raise an
alarm should the door be held open too long, or wedged open etc. The
acceptable threshold of door-open-time can be varied between 30 seconds
and 4 minutes (in 30 second adjustments). In most cases 30 seconds
would be deemed most appropriate unless prolonged opening is to be
expected under normal use, perhaps if trolleys of stock are being moved through from one side to the other for example.
Adding and removing users could not be simpler.
Adding new users and removing no longer permitted users is
very easy using the supplied master card for the system. Begin by presenting the master card for five seconds at which point the
screen will show a 'dot' (.), showing you that you have successfully
entered programming. Next simply present a new user fob, and the
system will beep to confirm that it has enrolled the new fob. The unit will exit programming mode after 30 seconds and at this point
will display the ID of the last user added. You would then note this
down for your records for future management in whichever record system is most appropriate for your premises.
If it becomes necessary to delete a user, for example a member of staff leaves, or has lost a fob, you can identify the ID of the user to be removed from your records and then present
your master card, hold the S1 button until it displays '001' on the
screen, then repeatedly press the S1 button until the number reaches the
ID of the user to be removed. At this point you would press the S2
button, and the number on the screen will be removed and replaced with a
blank '---' record. This shows the user's fob has now been removed
from the access list and as such will no longer trigger the reader to release the door if presented.
