Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, owner of Schlage contactless smart credentials and readers, has announced the launch of Schlage’s new WPR400 Wireless Portable Reader.
Designed for use in contactless access control systems, the device offers a cache mode option for offline applications ranging from attendance, event admission, checkpoints, signal testing, perimeter expansion and more.
“The WPR400 Wireless Portable Reader lets users extend the reach of their access control systems,” explains Karen Keating, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies Portfolio marketing manager. “For a field trip, a school could use the reader to check in students when boarding a bus. Industries could use the reader to verify who has left the plant during a fire or other emergency. There are a myriad of applications.”
The device communicates to access control systems via the Schlage PIM400 (Panel Interface Module), the same as used within the Schlage AD-Series wireless access control system.
According to Ingersoll Rand, the reader is also field-configurable to work as a Wireless Portable Signal Tester, making installation of wireless access control systems quicker and easier.
