SECURITY TECHNOLOGIES GROUP ANNOUNCES THE AVAILABILITY OF ECO FRIENDLY (fleaPowerTM) TECHNOLOGY FOR THEIR PROXIMITY READER RANGE

 

Low power option for Farpointe Data, Inc’s Pyramid Series Proximity reduces user’s carbon footprint.

 

Hargrave, Northamptonshire "October 12, 2009 — Security Technologies Group (STG) announced today the availability of fleaPowerTM for their PyramidTM Series Proximity line by Farpointe Data Inc. 

 

Pioneered by Farpointe Data and available exclusively with the Pyramid Series ProximityTM line, fleaPowerTM is a new, patent-pending technology that dramatically reduces the power requirements of a proximity-RFID reader. Through the application of Farpointe Data\'s latest advanced technology, fleaPowerTM can reduce the power consumption of a PyramidTM Series Proximity reader by as much as 500%. fleaPowerTM offers a number of tangible benefits. First and foremost, fleaPowerTM is a true ‘eco-technology,’ doing its part to save energy and the environment. Second, fleaPowerTM reduces the amount of money a user must spend to operate their proximity readers. Third, fleaPowerTM offers the systems integrator the true option of powering a reader directly from the access controller, eliminating the need for expensive separate power supplies. And finally, fleaPowerTM enabled readers are the best choice for emergency situations, as they can be powered much longer by back-up batteries.

Said Denis Kane, Director of STG, "fleaPowerTM is Farpointe’s own eco friendly "green technology” designed to help conserve the environment and reducing energy costs. The way we like to think about is; would you leave a light bulb on overnight? Readers stay on 24 hours a day 7 days a week. This energy reduction will result in long term energy savings. Also, in emergency situations our fleaPowerTM enabled readers can be powered much longer by back-up batteries”.

 

"Additionally, with more and more access control panel manufacturers moving towards Power over Ethernet (PoE) to power their panels, readers and locks, this development will assist with the limited power available through current network equipment”, noted Kane.
