Multi-factor Verification with a Lifetime Warranty

Farpointe Data announced that access control manufacturers and integrators can now provide their customers with its new Farpointe P-640 Patagonia reader that supports popular proximity card and tag technologies with an integrated keypad for 2-factor verification applications. The proximity card reader features an expanded eight-inch read range for increased convenience as the user enters a PIN on the keyboard.

"Of great importance to OEMs, the P-640 Patagonia proximity card reader and keypad carries a lifetime warranty," explained Scott Lindley, president of Farpointe Data. "OEMs can assure their channel network and customers that they will only have to pay for this special unit once. If something goes wrong, Farpointe will replace it."

Farpointe doesn't provide this warranty lightly. Since many of the P-640 units are slated to be used outdoors or in dusty environments, the proximity/keypad combination is designed to meet IP67 certification. The unit features tamper-proof and weather-resistant epoxy potting to avoid problems with dust, mist or water. It works in temperature extremes from -40°F to +149°F (-40°C to +65°). With distinctive blue backlit keys, the P-640 is very easy to read in dark environments.

"For a growing number of end-users, single factor verification does not provide the access security level they now require," explained Lindley. "Today, they want to have multi-factor verification with what they have, a card, plus what they know, a PIN. With the P-640 Patagonia reader, access control manufacturers and their integrators can provide them with the most reliable solution for what they need."

The P-640 mounts directly to a standard North American sized wall switch box or any flat surface. It is available for shipment now.
