AXCESS Announces Universal RFID Connectivity to Security Systems

Friday 19 December 2003 10:29 CET | News

AXCESS has launched a universal connectivity to building and gate access control systems for its ActiveTag RFID system.

Using hardware options and powerful middleware, any access control security system can be easily upgraded to take advantage of the automatic identification and control capabilities of RFID (radio frequency identification). Hands-free personnel and vehicle access to doors and gates, and automatic electronic tracking and protection for high value assets has been shown to improve the security provided by todays installed systems. RFID also reduces direct labor costs and the impact the security system has on worker productivity. The system is sold through the industrys largest security integrators where access control systems in the U.S. alone accounted for over $2 billion in sales last year. The patented ActiveTag system uses an embedded battery in the card sized, electronic tag for extra-long range identification. Tags are used for personnel, vehicles, assets, prisoners, and cargo. Each tag transmits to receivers from 18 inches up to 150 feet away. The system offers multiple connectivity and compatibility options including the Weigand communications protocol, the standard interface for all access control systems. The AXCESS system can also be connected to existing systems via computer serial port and using Ethernet TCP/IP networking. For network architectures, the ActiveTag system employs a powerful and flexible middleware solution for translating virtually any security, inventory, or logistics transaction for compatibility with the existing system.
