SECURITY TECHNOLOGIES GROUP ANNOUNCES THE AVAILABILITY OF RE-DESIGNED LONG RANGE PROXIMITY READER

 

Farpointe Data, Inc’s Pyramid Series Proximity Reader Optimised for Applications Requiring Longer Read Range.

 

Hargrave, Northamptonshire "November, 2009 — Security Technologies Group (STG) announced today the availability of the P-710 Andes Proximity Reader for their Pyramid Series ProximityTM line by Farpointe Data Inc. 

 

The P-710-H Andes Proximity Reader is a member of the Pyramid Series Proximity® line of OEM proximity readers, cards and tags. A high performance design, it is classified as a medium range reader, and is capable of delivering read ranges of up to 15 inches (381mm). The longer read range of the P-710 adds convenience to a wide range of access applications, including turnstiles and parking control.

 

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. Both Wiegand (industry standard 26-bit and custom) and magnetic stripe 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, "the enhanced level of performance together with the multi-technology capabilities, plus the inclusion of MAXSecureTM providing an additional level of system security, is exactly what our customers have been requesting.”

 

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