Standalone online access control system ‘reliable and cost-effective’

People and vehicle access control specialist, Nortech, has launched NanoQuest – ‘a secure, single door self-contained access control system’. The standalone proximity card reader / access controller combination is ‘small, powerful, and supports up to 500 users. Said to be easy to install and operate, it houses both the access control electronics and the 125 kHz proximity reader. Nortech said: “Its slender and elegant compact design suits most settings, while the robust construction allows it to be used in most working environments.” A NanoQuest unit controls access through a single door for up to 500 authorised users and can also be used as a secure method of controlling devices such as intruder alarm panels, lighting, and heating.

The configuration of its many features and the addition / removal of user cards are made simple with a ‘Master’ card. Special ‘User’ and ‘Auxiliary’ cards can also be added to control auxiliary devices and access-restricted areas, and free exit input is included.

The unit can also output card data in RS232 format when in ‘NanoQuest’ mode, and in both RS232 and 26-bit Wiegand format in ‘Reader’ mode so that it can be used as a standard card reader as part of a future migration to a larger system. It can also be armed by an external device, and allows door monitoring and alarm output to external alarm devices.

Nortech, which offers ‘a flexible range of card and fob packs’, has been an independent British supplier of products and solutions to the security industry for over 25 years.
