Gallagher unveils new T30 access reader

Issue 8 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

Security manufacturer, Gallagher, has launched its new T30 keypad reader. The first of its kind from Gallagher, the T30 card and PIN reader offers an extra layer of security without the display screen of the T20, providing customers with flexibility when choosing hardware to secure their sites.

Robust enough to withstand the harshest conditions and with an IK09 impact protection rating, the T30 is available in MIFARE and multi-tech variants, offering compatibility with MIFARE smartcard and NFC technology, and Bluetooth credentials through Gallagher Mobile Connect.

Meredith Palmer, chief product officer at Gallagher, says, “We’re very excited about the release of our T30 reader. With two-factor authentication, the T30 is the perfect reader for sites that require that vital extra layer of security, but don’t need all the ‘bells and whistles’ built into our T20 reader.”

The original release was planned for October; a date set long before COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions came into effect. “Our team pulled out all the stops to release the T30 to market a full month ahead of schedule, which is quite an achievement during the current pandemic climate,” says Palmer.

The T30 is compliant with FCC, CE, and C-Tick approvals, with UL compliance currently pending. The T30 reader is available for order now.
