Nortech Control Systems Ltd reports that it’s joined AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Preferred Partner Program.
California-based AMAG has certified the integration of Nortech’s uPASS Reach, and Transit Ultimate, readers which use Nedap technologies. Both of these products offer vehicle access control and are certified to be used with AMAG’s latest Symmetry access control software. The products require specific card types but Wiegand readers are compatible with all Symmetry door controllers.
Nortech makes and distributes access control, card access, and vehicle access products. Nortech says that it’s well positioned to offer training, technical support and advice on the certified products to all AMAG’s customers and partners.
Nedap’s uPASS Reach and uPASS Target are passive tag readers using UHF technology. They offer between 5 to 10 metre read range and are for access control or for monitoring the traffic flow in residential or commercial projects.
Transit Ultimate uses semi-active tags and RFID (radio frequency identification) enabling automatic multi-lane, vehicle identification at distances of up to 10m and at speeds of up to 125mph, it’s claimed. It is used for security applications and vehicle access control applications in harsh site conditions, the makers add.
AMAG Technology says that its Symmetry Access systems are designed for type and size of user from small offices and colleges to government agencies and multi-national corporations. David Ella, AMAG Technology, Vice President-Product and Partner Programs said: “Customers can now integrate access control with vehicle access to provide another layer of security in environments where controlling vehicle access is critical to security.”
