Powell Tronics goes to the Extreme with new Morpho products at Securex

May 2017 News

According to Powell Tronics CEO, John Powell, Securex provides the company with the opportunity to not only present new technologies to the market, but furthermore to interact with its existing customers and suppliers. This year marks the company’s sixth consecutive presence at Africa’s largest security and fire exhibition.

“We have redesigned our stand to act as a dynamic background to the new products we will be launching at Securex. In addition to Impro’s Portal range of products, IP intercom equipment and our own range of bespoke solutions and time and attendance software, we will also be introducing two new products from Morpho,” says Powell.

SIGMA Extreme

The MorphoAccess SIGMA Extreme access and time fingerprint terminal replaces the MorphoAccess and Bioscrypt 4G legacy ranges. Based on the same platform as the entire SIGMA product line, the outdoor MA SIGMA Extreme is specifically designed to operate in the harshest conditions. Not only does it resist rain, snow, dust and salt mist but it is also capable of withstanding strong impacts and is resistant to vandalism.

The SIGMA Extreme features a bright capacitive touchscreen with very responsive controls and a biometric sensor, and is claimed to be the largest single fingerprint sensor on the local market. Other notable features that enhance the robustness of the terminal include the IP65 enclosure, the sturdy wall mounting and the tempered glass screen.

MorphoTablet 2

The second generation MorphoTablet2 secure biometric tablet is the perfect partner for Powell Tronics’ ATOM T&A and PT-Rollcall software solutions. The 8-inch touchscreen Android device offers 4G high-speed data transfer, complete credential acquisition/reading capabilities, plus enhanced usability and robustness to ensure seamless enrolment, ID verification and identification on the spot.

Powell says that the second generation’s predecessor has been used, together with PT-Rollcall, in a well-known South African tertiary educational facility to verify the identity of a specified group of first-year students at the 2015 year-end examinations.

The device’s 13 MP camera with dual LED for face capture, 1D/2D barcode and MRZ reading ensures complete accuracy, making the device perfect for instances where complete identification verification is required. Applications include elections, ID document issuance, criminal identification, time and attendance, access control, border control and registration/rollcall.

Powell Tronics has experienced a steady growth since its inception, a fact that Powell attributes to the highly motivated and experienced sales, technical, development, administration and management teams. “We have also invested heavily in ensuring that we stay abreast of new technological developments in the market and strategically incorporate them into the software products we develop in-house.”

By proactively monitoring the market instead of reacting to technology trends, Powell Tronics differentiates itself from being merely a supplier of products and moves into the realm of innovation facilitator. A strength which sets the company apart is its ability to ascertain, through intense customer involvement and relationship building, exactly what the market requires.

Confirmation of the company’s customer-centric philosophy is evident in the large number of Powell Tronics’ visitor management systems currently deployed at a number of premier residential estates in the country. Added to this is an increasing penetration into the educational sector, where products such as PT-Rollcall are enhancing the reliability of register-taking for examinations.

Powell explains that the company’s latest software offering – the ATOM time and attendance suite of products – is finding favour with a number of industries. Most recently, enquiries have been received for portable solutions from the construction industry and the farming community, to use the mobile clocking version of ATOM software for employees that do not report to a centralised point.

Powell Tronics will be running regular business card draws with attractive prizes on its Securex stand. The sales team will be on hand to demonstrate all of the company’s products and to discuss solutions.
