Johnson Controls has introduced its multi-functional Software House TST-100 Touchscreen Terminal, providing an enhanced end-user experience at the door. With an intuitive touch screen user interface, native intrusion functionality and compatibility with both legacy and IP-based door controllers from Software House, the TST-100 Touchscreen Terminal adds value to the access control system by allowing users to have more flexibility and control at the reader level.
The TST-100 features a large, 4.3-inch graphical LCD touch screen that displays a range of colourful icons and custom command menus, providing end users with quick and easy feedback of the access control operation, and allows guards and other individuals the ability to easily arm and disarm intrusion zones and issue custom commands directly at the door.
Built using the HID Global 5127 Mini multi-technology read head, the Touchscreen Terminal supports a range of highly secure smartcard technologies, including HID iCLASS SE and iCLASS Seos. It uses high-speed encrypted RS-485 for secure communications to an IP controller, making it ideal for healthcare facilities, educational facilities, airports and other critical security environments where network connectivity directly to a reader on the unsecure side is not allowed.
“The TST-100 Touchscreen Terminal hits several targets of multi-functionality, advanced security and ultimate usability all within a sleek, user-friendly touch screen interface,” said Rafael Schrijvers, access control product marketing manager, EMEA, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls.
The TST-100 also offers intrusion functionality at the door without the addition of an intrusion interface, allowing end users to view arm/disarm intrusion zones on the device. A command menu provides end users with the ability to issue custom key commands to the intrusion system as well. The reader’s programming includes Johnson Controls’ Reliable Messaging (RM) protocol that facilitates compatibility with any iSTAR door controller.
The Touchscreen Terminal can be added to any Software House platform, including the C•CURE 9000 Security + Event Management system, and can also be integrated with the victor Unified Client. The TST-100 includes the IP-based Ethernet Access Control Door Module (IP-ACM), which when installed near the doors it controls, establishes secure IP, network-based communications with iSTAR door controllers using cyber-secure AES encryption. The Touchscreen Reader’s IP-ACM door module also includes Power-over-Ethernet (POE) capability, helping to lower installation costs.
