A typical parking access control system will consists of the following equipment:
b. RFID reader
c. Access controller
d. PC hardware + OS
e. Licensed Parking software
The above usually applies to all parking systems small and large. This application note highlights the ability to reduce the cost of simpler installations with TagMaster RFID readers. The equipment you will need is only as follow:
b. TagMaster RFID reader
Benefits and How we can help
1. Built in database
All TagMaster RFID readers have a built in database. Users can deploy a white list to the readers so that the reader will operate the barriers when a valid card is displayed. To use the access control feature on the XT series reader, a MicroSD card is required.
2. Built in logging feature
The built in logging feature will list the number of detections of valid and also invalid tags. The log can be retrieved by the user manually. User can select whether to log all card reads or just valid cards. A timestamp of date and time will accompany each log entry so users will have visibility of the time of detection.
3. Configurable reader action
TagMaster RFID readers can be configured to blink a certain colour when a valid or invalid tag is detected. It can also be used to activate a barrier via the dry contact available on the TagMaster RFID readers. The dry contact activation time can also be configured to cater for different barrier requirements. This also allows the reader output to be connected to a wide variety of contact driven gate devices such as:
b. Automatic Gates
d. Traffic Light
4. Loop detector connection option
The TagMaster XT reader has a loop controller input so the user have the option of using an external loop detector with the access control feature. This allows the reader to detect the presence of vehicles.
5. Low costs and simple installation
The features built into the TagMaster RFID readers allow for a very low cost implementations of standalone parking systems that can be offline and can operate without user intervention.
