New T&A/access control terminal with RFID proximity reader

March/April 2000 Access Control & Identity Management

Intelligent Instrumentation of Tucson, Arizona, has recently announced a new addition to its FactoryView product line. Its TIMEpoint time and attendance/access control computer is now available with an integral RFID proximity reader.

Radio frequency identification (RFID) cards are read by simply presenting the card near the face of the TIMEpoint computer. This allows very quick and secure clock-in or clock-out and/or access through a controlled doorway.

The RFID TIMEpoint is designed specifically for time and attendance, labour reporting and access control applications. It easily withstands the high-traffic industrial environments common to time clocks. Employees clock in and out by moving the RFID card within about 10 cm of the TIMEpoint. No need to line up a card with the slot or even slow down when walking by the unit and no contact is necessary. When the data card is read, the person can receive immediate feedback via the internal beeper and the backlit 2 x 40 display. Doors can be automatically opened using the optional digital I/O interface.

The TIMEpoint reads standard Motorola 26-bit lifetime warranty cards, ISO 30 cards, key tags and other ID tags available from Motorola and Motorola distributors worldwide.

LANpoint data collection computers from Intelligent Instrumentation are based on open standards, are reliable, rugged and can be used with familiar technology. They are true DOS PCs with Ethernet and autoID capabilities, designed for demanding data collection applications. They work just like any other client PC on the network but are smaller and more rugged than standard PCs and have no moving parts that wear out or need maintenance. Applications can be developed and managed using standard PC programming languages and tools. No additional software, such as programmer toolkits, are required.

Intelligent Instrumentation is represented in South Africa by Johannesburg-based Designs Unique.
