Access Control Technologies

Remsdaq supplies proximity card, smart card, biometric and OSDP readers as its principle technologies.

The EntroPad card reader is designed and manufactured by Remsdaq and incorporates a number of advanced features to make it the ideal choice for a wide range of applications: from public buildings to hospitals, military and other secure facilities.

EntroPad is a smart card reader, keypad Request To Exit (RTE) button. The product is designed to work with almost any Wiegand output access control panel including other leading brands. EntroPad supports MIFARE, PicoPass  and the Remsdaq EntroClass Secure credential with read/write, English or Arabic touch keypad and hands-free RTE variants.

EntroPad is a highly versatile smart card reader with an antimicrobial coating making it ideal for public sector and health applications. The LEDs (outer band and keypad buttons) can be set to one of several individual colours to match into any environment using an EntroPad Config Kit. This alarm sounder can also be silenced using this kit for sensitive hospital areas including intensive care units.

Remsdaq access control panels and controllers work with a number of other access control card readers and the company has ensured integration with biometric readers from Invixium and IEVO. Mullion readers and keypads are also available.

Proximity Cards

A proximity card is a type of contactless smart card that can be read by a card reader if the card is within range of the card reader. Unlike a magnetic stripe card, a proximity card does not have to touch the access control card reader. The card reader reads the encoded number on the proximity card and verifies this information in the access control database.

Smart Cards

The modern smart card is contactless and has a built-in microprocessor and memory. The microprocessor is there to provide the card reader with the credential which is then checked by the access control system within its user database. If permission is granted the door will open and if not the door will remain closed. Smart cards can also carry other information for the card holder including biometric information, cash for use in vending machines and pre-paid membership information.

Contactless smart cards use the same radio-based technology as proximity cards but at a higher frequency of 13.56kHz compared to 125.5KHz. This higher frequency allows for communication with several cards at the same time and the flow of more data. Contactless cards do not have to touch a reader or have to be removed from a wallet or purse.

As well as manufacturing access card readers, Remsdaq also supplies:

  • credentials in the form of EntroPass which can be used on a smart card or key fob token
  • a desktop enrolment reader for easy credential registration and database setup
