Asset tracking readers

September 2017 Asset Management, EAS, RFID, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

ZKTeco has a wide variety of access control and tracking solutions. This includes long range UHF scanning and tracking which can be used for access control, asset tracking and people tracking. These particular long range UHF readers can scan between 1 m and 12 m, depending on the scanner type and angle at which it is installed.

In combination with these scanners, a wide variety of tags are also available, which is used to tag and identify the specific asset or person being tracked or granted access to a specific area or gate. The tags come in ranges of vehicle window tags, asset tag stickers, high heat tags, vandal proof and rugged tags, people armband tags and many more different types to choose from. The tags can be epoxied to an asset, or stuck onto an asset in a sticker format, or even bound to an arm or leg of a person or animal. In the animal tracking range, we also have cattle-ear tags available, which can be used to track cattle or other forms of livestock on farms.

The long range UHF scanners communicate directly to the ZKTeco Inbio series access control panels, which would make installation onto an existing ZKTeco site effortless and speedy.

The long range UHF scanners are compatible with most Wiegand interfaced readers, as it transmits information on a tag in the Wiegand protocol to the control panel or master unit. Some integrations are mostly plug-and-play, but in more protocol and format sensitive system environments, some development for the interfacing of these scanners may be required, but this can be easily accomplished with ZKTeco’s South African team of developers.

The system is cost-effective and affordable, and can also cut costs and losses in areas like stock loss, asset loss, attendance at work or on-site, etc. Ultimately the system does not necessarily need to be an asset purchased without the chance of a return in costs spent, and if implemented correctly for the reasons of prohibiting losses, the system can return its value by cutting down on these losses respectively.
