Galaxy Control Systems Dual Reader Module (DRM) is designed for use with the company’s 635 Dual Serial Interface over RS485 UTP cabling. It enables up to 64 readers to be connected without the need to run dedicated cabling from a centralized controller, which significantly reduces overall costs. The DRM accommodates a single door with a single reader, two doors each with a single reader, or a single door with two readers for in/out anti-passback operation.
The Barracuda DSI model protects inward swinging doors. With the door closed, the product is placed on the floor and the user slides the metal plates under the door. Pushing outward on the handles engage the plates to the exterior door jamb and the device is securely locked in place by simply inserting a pin. To secure an outward swinging door, the DSO model is positioned so that the bar rests on the door jamb on either side of a closed door and the built-in hook is placed over the door handle. The device is secured by spinning the turn handle until it is snug in place.
Zwipe’s next-generation biometric card, a contactless smart card credential with on-card fingerprint reading, quickly reads the user’s fingerprint in less than a second. Eliminating the problems of solely deploying PINs and standard cards, the contactless Zwipe biometric card lets users authenticate themselves directly on the card through something they are, a fingerprint. Only then will the card system activate the lock.
Yale Locks & Hardware
The Key Free B1L and T1L boast the quality cues of Yale’s current lock line, including fully gasketed installation, ANSI/ BHMA grade 2 certification, motorized tapered deadbolts, and intuitive phone layout keypads.
