Borer designs intelligent PoE smartcard access control reader that reduces installation costs
FUSION Smartcard Reader eliminates the need for a separate control panel, wall box and power supply to reduce component count, bespoke cabling requirements, installation complexity and associated costs.
Borer's FUSION Smartcard Reader is a complete access control solution providing full online and offline card validation with decision making capabilities at the point of entry. This removes the need for a separate control panel, wall box and additional mains power at every door facilitating speedy, cost-effective installation.
The FUSION Smartcard Reader connects to the Borer FUSION access control database via a Midspan Ethernet Bridge and the Local Area Network (LAN), eliminating the need for extensive cabling.
The smartcard reader utilizes Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology, which enables everything at the door to be powered over a Single CAT5/6 Network Cable – delivering enough energy to power two card readers and a electric strike or magnetic lock as well as delivering data – and thus eliminating the need for additional wiring.
The elimination of unnecessary equipment together with low energy consumption and a sleek, light, 100g design, the FUSION Smartcard Reader delivers a cleaner, leaner and greener solution that can reduce lifetime cost of ownership.
The intelligent smartcard reader's secure internal database holds a massive 120,000 cardholders/transactions at the reader enabling decisions to be made at the reader. All data held on the database is securely encrypted to prevent manipulation or misuse.
Firmware updates can be automatically downloaded to the reader over the LAN network, enabling new generations of smartcards to be supported when the technologies are introduced.
The FUSION Smartcard Reader support for open standard (ISO 14443A and B - MIFARE and DESFire, ISO 15693) technologies where a single card can be used for a range of applications including: banking, travel card, cashless vending, access control and attendance recording.
