GAO RFID has released a Wiegand-to-Ethernet RFID controller designed specifically for door access applications.
The network access controller, model 491018, is able to connect to any type of Wiegand reader such as magnetic stripe reader, RFID reader or fingerprint reader. It also offers a master card for adding or deleting access privileges directly from the external reader, thus acting independently without connection to a network or PC.
The controller features a door left open alarm function and is available with separate control unit and reader for higher security demands. Additional features include central control and communication with a network server using RCP or UDP protocol for easy overview of access events.
The programmable control unit provides a Wiegand port and a 10/100 Base Ethernet port for communication. Two input sensors detect unlocked door and exit button pressed. Two relay outputs for external alarm and electric lock are also provided.
