Ingersoll Rand launches new range of security readers
Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies leading global provider of security and safety solutions, has launched a series of multi-technology readers designed to simplify the transition from older security platforms, such as proximity 125kHz, to smart technology, in the Middle East and Africa.
This new range of electronic access control readers under the aptiQ™ brand includes the ability to read a variety of contactless technology platforms, such as proximity, XceedID® MIFARE®, and aptiQTM MIFARE DESFireTM EV1 smart card. The readers are also Near Field Communication (NFC) compliant, giving users the ability to migrate to mobile credentials in the future.
To maintain the highest security levels, the aptiQ™ reader allows mutually encrypted communication between the card, reader and diversified keys, which protect data integrity and prevent unauthorised access.
Nabil Rahal, standard electronic access control sales leader - Middle East and Africa, at Ingersoll Rand said: “The aptiQ™ readers are a superior product from both an aesthetic and technological point of view. Our new product range is designed to provide end-users with unique advantages over others available on the market today, namely the ability to expand and upgrade the credential technology with ease. With aptiQ™, users now have a simplified offering which will meet the access control needs of virtually any application.”
The aptiQ™ readers come in four contemporary designs with various colour options to complement a range of décors. Installation is simplified using a mounting bracket and a plug-and-go wiring harness which enables prewiring in new construction and allows for easy maintenance in the future.
