ProxNet Multi Door Access Control Systems

ProxNet is an access control system based on RFID technology. The two main components of the system are the controller and up to 254 proximity readers and/or alarm monitor units. Optionally a PC running management and reporting software may be added to enhance the system. All communication is via a single RS-485 network.
The system supports up to 4000 card holders. The number of card holders can be increased if certain features are not used . Each card holder carries a uniquely encoded proximity card or tag, and presents this card to within some 10 cm of a reader to gain access via the associated door, turnstile, booth or boom. All readers are capable of making intelligent access decisions and logging transactions even if temporarily disconnected from the controller. The use of non-volatile memory in both the controller and readers ensures that no loss of data will be experienced during power failures
