AMAG Technology Delivers New Javelin Family of Keypad/Display Readers

Powerful Reader Delivers Access Control and Intrusion Management in One

Torrance, CA, - AMAG Technology, a security management solution provider that offers converged access control, IP video and enterprise intrusion management, today announces its new Javelin family of readers. The Javelin readers can operate as standard readers with versions of Symmetry(TM) Security Management V6.x or as fully functional, intelligent alarm keypads when used with Symmetry Homeland V7 with the Symmetry Intrusion Management module and supported Symmetry M2150 multiNODE controllers.

"Customers including healthcare, education, ports and airports, but especially the government and the military utilizing Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs), now have a unified Symmetry platform for a powerful integrated access control and intrusion management solution to secure their buildings, classified information and employees," said AMAG Technology, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Matt Barnette. "The Javelin reader offers a robust solution tailored to simplify the security process and improve efficiency."

The Javelin 884-KP reads NXP MIFARE® and MIFARE® DESFire smart cards, in addition to Personal Identity Verification (PIV), Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) and First Responder Authentication Card (FRAC) cards. The Javelin 880-KP reads 125kHz HID Proximity credentials. Other models will be released over time.

The Javelin LCD graphical display verifies card acceptance or rejection, and can prompt for a user's PIN to verify command functions. Access control and intrusion messaging such as PIN prompts, door information and intrusion area alarm status is displayed using configurable text, icons and user friendly graphical images. The keypad and reader are backlit for ease of use and provide the power saving option to reduce the lighting levels when the reader is not in use.

An onboard Wiegand Interface allows a separate external reader to be connected to support additional card technologies such as barcode, magnetic strip, HID iCLASS®, etc. This unique capability allows you to create a custom multi-technology portal by combining a legacy reader of your choice with the appropriate state-of-the-art Javelin model, thereby helping to smooth out the process of transitioning a population to a new card technology. This capability does not require an additional reader port on the panel, and works with both access control and intrusion functions.

When used with Symmetry Homeland V7 and the latest generation of M2150 hardware, the Javelin delivers access control and intrusion management functions through one easy-to-use terminal. Authorized users present their card at the reader to disarm the area behind the door and unlock the door. Access can be controlled based on intrusion status and authorized card holder permissions. The combined system provides simplified administration, enhanced security and eliminates the need for a separate intrusion detection system.

Key features of the Javelin contactless card readers include:

o Integrated access control and intrusion management in one system with Symmetry V7

o Aesthetic reader design

o LCD graphical display to easily read commands

o Programmable display through Symmetry software

o Secure, bi-directional, Pseudo-Random supervised MCLP communications

o Tailored soft keys for intrusion management

o Wiegand reader input to allow alternate credentials

o Integrated door pre-held warning buzzer included

o Multi-tone audio sounder for access granted/denied and PIN prompt

o LCD for verification of card accepted and card rejected

o PIN prompt and verification of command function initiated through the reader keypad

o Three color LED alert status indication

o Energy saving light presets
