Tyco Security Products Releases Next Generation S700e IP Card Reader, Controller

Tyco Security Products Releases Next Generation S700e IP Card Reader, Controller. Tyco Security Products, part of Johnson Controls, announces the release of the S700e Intelligent IP Reader and the companion S700 Exit Reader from CEM Systems, extending the powerful reach of CEM Systems' AC2000 access control and security management system.

This next generation IP card reader and combined controller is the ideal solution for controlling access to restricted areas or for use in areas where card activation of machinery is required. With its onboard Ethernet connection, the S700e bypasses the need for an intelligent control panel within the AC2000 system.

The user-friendly unit offers a large graphical LCD display with several easy-to-read and simple to comprehend predefined messages, such as Access Granted, Expiring Card, Lost or Stolen Card, Wrong Time, Wrong Zone and Passback Violation and icons for intuitive operation.

The soft-touch capacitive keypad on the S700e allows for dual-authentication by presenting both a card and entering an associated PIN. The unit features four analog inputs that monitor door or alarm conditions and two changeover relay outputs that activate door strikes or other equipment. The companion S700 Exit Reader, which offers the security of a bi-directional door when deployed, can be used in conjunction with the S700e Intelligent IP Reader.

The S700e master reader provides reading support for 13.56MHz smart card and 125kHz proximity technology, and is designed to handle a larger reader database for off-line card verification and alarms. The S700e can hold up to 250,000 cardholder records and up to 50,000 offline transactions. It works with a host of card technologies, including MIFARE, DESFire, iCLASS, iCLASS SE, HID 125kHz Proximity and PicoPass. A forward-thinking technology, the S700e supports IPv4 networks and is IPv6-ready.

It is also rated for outdoor use, handling temperatures from -20 to 70 degrees C, or -4 to 158 degrees F, making it a versatile option in many settings.

"Building on the success of CEM Systems' s610 intelligent readers, the next generation S700e IP Reader and S700 Exit Reader put intuitive, intelligent access control where it's needed—at the door," said Richard Fletcher, Product Manager, CEM Systems.
