Proximity Access Control Readers
Radio Key readers are available in three form factors: the RK-WM, an S-shaped mini-mullion; the RK-WS, a traditional single-gang box “wall switch” housing; and the RK-WL, a large post/wall mount housing for long range applications.
Radio Key readers use 125 kHz proximity technology, and work with Secura Key encoded cards and key tags. Radio Key® readers use patented Dynascan® automatic tuning to optimize the reader to its RF environment, which provides dramatically better read range than competing products with the same antenna size.
Radio Key readers have an SIA standard Wiegand output and transmit data in virtually any Wiegand format up to 40 bits, so the are compatible with most access control panels including the Secura Key SK-ACP.
Radio Key models have a wire pigtail for easy field connections. All Radio Key® readers are weatherproof, epoxy-potted units suitable for outdoors. All models are UL 294 Listed and FCC/CE approved devices.
Touch Card Access Control Readers
Touch Card technology combines a legacy card technology with a high-tech solid state reader. The cards contain a Barium Ferrite insert, which is encoded by magnetizing spots in a specific pattern with specific polarities. While the original mechanical technology used an insert reader with small magnets and a micro switch, the patented slot-less TOUCHCARD reader uses sophisticated Hall-effect sensors to read the cards through a stainless steel plate, and it is protected from weather and vandalism.
