Access Control

Reader access

Nedap Identification Systems and Axis Communications have introduced an integrated product based on Axis’ physical access control products.

It combines the firms say Nedap’s identification readers with Axis’ physical security devices. This was launched during the Intersec Dubai exhibition, in January.

According to the companies, customers get an open and future-flexible IP-alternative. Axis’ physical access control products offer identification and entry control besides access management.

Nedap’s TRANSIT Ultimate, pictured, is described as a long-range reader, based on semi-active RFID (radio frequency identification), enabling automatic vehicle and driver identification at distances of up to 10 m (33 ft). This reader is now available as a standalone product, using the open architecture of the AXIS A1001 IP-based network door controller that features embedded access management software. Nedap’s uPASS readers, that offer vehicle identification using UHF (ultra high frequency), are expected to become available likewise as standalone this year.

Stephanie Hensler, Director Business Development, Access Control at Axis, said: “Nedap offers very effective technology to enhance the physical security benefits of our physical access control products, ensuring greater security and safety. By combining our two companies’ expertise and products, we can deliver a solution that not only strengthens customers’ security coverage today, but provides an efficient and cost-effective way to scale to address future requirements as well.” And Wouter Vansteenkiste, Senior Channel Development Manager at Nedap, said: “As a result of our partnership with Axis, we are able to provide our sales channel as a state of the art standalone physical access control solution that leverages the full potential of our high end long-range identification readers.”
