Farpointe Featuring Ranger® Long Range Identification at IFSEC International

Integrates Long Range Reading with Increased Device Control in Leading Proximity or Contactless Smart Card Systems

Sunnyvale, Calif., USA – Farpointe Data, a DORMA Group Company, the access control industry's trusted global partner for RFID solutions, today announced that attendees of the IFSEC International exhibition in London 16-18 June can see how its new Ranger WRR-22 and WRR-44 433 MHz receivers can use either 2-button or 4-button transmitters to open two or four different doors from ranges up to 200 feet (61 m). Each button outputs transmitter data over separate Wiegand outputs yet the receiver installs like a Farpointe Pyramid Series proximity reader for easy integration with popular proximity or contactless smart card access control systems. Since 433 MHz is an internationally harmonized standard, organizations can standardize on the Ranger long range reading system around the globe.

"Ranger WRR-22 and WRR-44 receivers are a terrific solution for long range access control applications such as gates and vehicle barriers, moving aircraft in and out of secure hangars, arming and disarming alarm systems as well as situations calling for emergency duress," emphasizes Scott Lindley, Farpointe Data president. "Instead of using a long range card, which could activate more than one device or door at a time, the transmitter holder selects exactly the mechanism to be immediately triggered."

Available in either a two- or four-button configuration and equipped standard with a weather-resistant potted proximity or contactless smart card module, the transmitter can be used as a presentation-style access credential. For example, a button may be pressed to access a long range application, such as a gated parking structure, and then be presented to a traditional access control reader to allow entry into the building.

Using standard 26-bit Wiegand protocol and featuring standard mounting holes, the WRR-22 and WRR-44 can be used as "add-on" or "wire-in" receivers. Using custom Wiegand protocols, such as a 32- or 36-bit protocol, the long range solution can be made even more secure. This prevents credential duplication and ensures that the readers will only collect data from this single system's coded credentials. The lithium cell battery is tested to exceed 250,000 presses.

The new WRR-22 and WRR-44 433 MHz receivers carry the CE Mark, are ETL listed to the UL 294 standard, are intended for use globally and are available for shipment now.

At IFSEC International, Farpointe Data will be in Booth C1800.
