Orion Entrance Control, Inc.'s OBSG-HG Receives 2015 Govies Award

In honor of outstanding government security products, Security Products magazine and security-today.com awarded Orion Entrance Control, Inc., a leading manufacturer of innovative and customized access control solutions, a 2015 Govies Award in Access Control Devices for their OBSG-HG Optical Barrier Swing Glass, High Glass.

OBSG-HG by Orion Entrance Control, Inc. is an esthetically-pleasing barrier that provides superb lobby security.

Made with 3/8-inch clear, tempered, “no touch,” swinging glass, the OBSG-HG offers an unobstructed view that enhances the look of any lobby with a modern flair while meeting and maintaining the highest security standards. Operating the barrier is easy with the use of an access card or other credential and a reader mounted inside the stainless-steel casework. For authorized entry, a top-mounted, LED-lighted green arrow will glow, pointing in the direction authorized. A chime sound emitted from an 8 ohm speaker will occur simultaneously. However, for unauthorized access attempts and tailgaters, visual and audible alarms will be triggered.

Orion’s technology features Beam Scanning Optical Detection (BSOD), an algorithmic pattern that allows authorized users to effortlessly pass through the lane while manipulating laptop bags, briefcases, bags and purses. Because this technology recognizes patterns of movement through the barrier, should someone attempt to piggyback, a visual and audible alarm is triggered. BSOD allows for faster throughput (up to one person per second based on the access control system’s output) as it scans the lanes in both directions simultaneously, and the lane’s ¼-inch detection provides a low number of false alarms with the highest degree of security screening.

“We are very grateful for winning the 2015 Govies Award for our OBSG-HG,” said Steve Caroselli, President, Orion Entrance Control, Inc. “Our company works hard to create superior optical barrier solutions for the safety and security of facilities, and this award demonstrates our ability.

To see the OBSG-HG in person and participate in a hands-on demonstration, stop by Booth #5135 at ISC West 2015 in Las Vegas at the Sands Expo Center in the Venetian.
