ProxNet opens new doors fro GSC systems as new features are introduced.

Dec '99 Access Control & Identity Management

Three new additions to ProxNet are opening new doors for GSC's successful access control system; the remote reader head, alarm monitoring unit and a new time & attendance software option.

Remote reader head

A remote reader head has been developed for high security access points. One remote reader can now be added to each of the ProxNet system's 254 proximity readers. The fully potted unit is virtually indestructible, and is water and dust proofed to IP66. The read head is therefore most suitable for dusty and wet outdoor installations.

Alarm monitoring

An alarm monitoring unit has recently been released. The unit is able to monitor emergency exits, room temperature level sensors, passive infrared detectors, panic buttons, etc. Each alarm unit has eight inputs and up to 254 units (2032 alarm points) can be added to the ProxNet system.

Time & attendance

The ProxNet system is now able to fully integrate with a time & attendance software package without the need for duplicate employee databases. Individual ProxNet readers can be configured as clocking points and individual card holders can be configured as clockers.

All clocking information is accumulated in a 'clocking date base' and can be exported into GSC's TimeMaster Time and Analysis win software. From TimeMaster, all analysed clockings can be exported to payroll packages.

Says Erich Glatz, "GSC Systems commitment to continually improve existing products and to develop exciting new access control and time recording systems to market requirements, forms a good basis from which the company is moving into the new millennium."
