SECURITY TECHNOLOGIES GROUP ANNOUNCES THE AVAILABILITY OF A MULTI-FUNCTION PROXIMITY READER

 

Farpointe Data, Inc’s Pyramid Series Proximity Reader Ringe Extended to Include Reader to Bridge Functionality Between Both Alarm and Access Control Systems.

 

Hargrave, Northamptonshire "November, 2009 — Security Technologies Group (STG) announced today the availability of the P-610 Niagara Proximity Reader for their Pyramid Series ProximityTM line by Farpointe Data Inc. 

 

The P-610 Niagara Alarm Status Proximity Reader is a member of the Pyramid Series Proximity® line of OEM proximity readers, cards and tags. In addition to proximity identification applications, the P-610 includes either two or four (installer selectable) independently controllable LED’s that may be used to alert users to the status of the alarm system. This unique design allows the P-610 to bridge the functionality between both alarm and access control systems.

 

The reader supports Farpointe’s 125-kHz Pyramid Series Proximity cards and tags, as well as HID’s standard 125-kHz proximity cards and tags. Optional compatibility with AWID’s standard 125-kHz proximity cards and tags makes this reader, in common with the rest of the Pyramid series range, extremely versatile.

 

Making use of Pro-XTM RFID technology ensures the Pyramid Series Proximity line offers best in class read range. Wiegand (industry standard 26-bit and custom) outputs are included as standard to ensure that the range is compatible with the majority of industry standard access control panels and systems.

 

The reader incorporates a single-piece design, which mounts directly to metal or plastic US wall switch boxes, or flat surfaces.  As with the complete reader range, this reader utilises ease-of-installation characteristics, such as requiring only two mounting screws and both horizontal and vertical mounting slots for accurate alignment.

 

The electronics are sealed in weather-and tamper-resistant epoxy potting for both indoor and outdoor operation making this one of the industry’s highest IP rated readers (IP67 rating).

 

Said Denis Kane, Director of STG, "with false alarms within the intruder alarm industry being a major issue, and the majority of those false alarms caused at the setting and unsetting stage, the addition of this extra functionality to advise users of the alarm panel status is sure to go a long way towards drastically reducing this problem.”

 

"Yet again Farpointe have stepped up to the challenge and produced a solution that not only meets, but also exceeds, customer demands.” noted Kane.
