HID introduces parking area active tag

May 2000 Access Control & Identity Management

In response to the growing demand for parking-area access control, HID Corporation has announced the addition of PowerProx to its product family of Prox by HID. The affordable, long-range, battery-powered tag mounts easily to the inside of a vehicle windshield. PowerProx works with existing MaxiProx readers and is fully compatible with any system that can use HID proximity cards. Now one system can answer all building and parking access control needs.

"At a third the price-per-lane of high-frequency readers and a reduced tag cost, PowerProx provides enhanced security and convenience at an exceptional value," said Joe Grillo, HID Vice President. "In addition, this low-frequency tag reduces the number of misreads considerably. High-frequency tags emit a signal up to 6 m, so when a vehicle is attempting to gain access, tags in nearby vehicles are often unintentionally read. PowerProx has exactly the right read range for parking applications."

"The PowerProx active tag utilises HID's standard MaxiProx reader at entrance points in parking areas," explained Peter Lowe, HID Vice President of Engineering. "The battery-powered tag provides a signal to the reader for up to three years. All that is required is for the driver to be within 2-2,5 m of the reader to open the gate."
