Vandal proof card readers for external access control

Siemens Building Technologies : 28 October, 2013  (New Product)
Siemens releases a range of new Mifare compatible card readers with vandal proof features and weather resistance
Vandal proof card readers for external access control

The new AR10S-MF/AR40S-MF card readers for the SiPass integrated access control system from Siemens are compatible with Mifare Classic, Mifare Plus und Mifare DESFire EV1 cards. When used in conjunction with Mifare Classic and Mifare DESFire EV1 cards, advanced encryption technology is employed between the card and the card reader. In addition, all communication between the card reader and the host system can be encrypted, delivering an exceptionally high level of security. The card readers are also ready for near field communication (NFC) standards which allow for contactless communication.

The basic version is a straight card reader. Other versions incorporate an integrated keyboard and an easy-to-read OLED display that enables system alerts and messages to be delivered instantly. Both the keypad and the display are illuminated, and their brightness automatically adapts to the ambient light conditions. All versions have an LED frame which can be illuminated in red, yellow or green.

The card readers are available for surface and flush mounting. They clip securely to a backplate or recessed box that has been previously installed and can be removed only using a special key. This feature is particularly useful in new buildings where the backplates and recessed boxes can be installed in the rough-in stage and the readers attached only when the building is ready for occupancy.

The readers are made of tough and durable materials that will easily withstand normal weather conditions and the effects of commonly used cleaning agents and solvents. Surface-mount versions have an IK08 impact protection rating, making them extremely resistant to vandalism. With an ingress protection rating of IP55 and an operating temperature range of -40ºC to +55ºC, they are the perfect choice for both indoor and outdoor applications.
