Johnson Controls launches the CEM Systems S3050 portable reader
The CEM Systems S3050 Portable Reader is a lightweight hand-held card reading device for use with the AC2000 access control and security management system.
It is designed to be used for ID card validation at temporary entrances or remote sites which have no power and as a mobile device for random checks within pre-defined zones.
A large full colour touch screen provides quick and easy navigation and also provides information about card validity, including cardholder details such as name, date of birth and an image of the cardholder.
The cardholder image display on the S3050 reader provides visual verification which is ideal for when mustering is required and for minimising the threat of card sharing.
Up to 250,000 card ID’s can be held in the reader’s database for differentiation between authorised and unauthorised personnel. Up to 16,000 offline card swipe transactions can also be stored for on-line transmission to the AC2000 system. Card technologies supported include 125kHz HID Proximity, DESFire CSN, HID iClass/iClass SEOS, PicoPass Sector and CEM DESFire.
When defined as a muster reader, the S3050 is loaded with the current system muster state, and the total number of recorded cardholders is displayed. When cardholders swipe their card, the displayed muster count is decremented. Any remaining cardholders can then be listed in a mini report on the portable screen.
An occupancy feature allows a cardholder head count to be performed within a defined area to prevent card sharing. Spot checks can therefore be carried out on the number of people on, for example a bus or plane.
