Defender total access control from HBA systems.

Dec '99 Access Control & Identity Management

HBA Systems, the long established security equipment distributor, has announced the availability of two new total access control systems, allowing facilities managers to quickly implement single or dual door control systems.

Both of the two new access systems utilise Dallas tag technology; each tag contains a unique 48 bit serial number which cannot be duplicated, cut or copied in any way.

The TAC1 provides for the activation of one relay, typically used for the control of an automated door. The supervisor uses one of up to 10 master tags to enroll each of the Dallas tags for use by up to 400 users. A global void facility must be used to invalidate nonrequired tags. Up to two readers may be used.

The TAC3 system expands on the facilities provided by its smaller brother by adding a liquid crystal display and keypad for use by the system controller. An RS232 port allows all system activity to be logged to a printer or PC, the on-board realtime clock time and date stamping each event. Individual void and validate as well as a global void of nonrequired tags is provided. Two relays may be activated by up to two readers. Anti-passback ensures security in controlled environments. This system allows the logging of 900 tags as standard; however, easy expansion up to 3500 tags is possible.

Two styles of reader are available: a low-cost unit for internal mounting and a weatherproof stainless steel vandal-resistant model.
