EdgeReader ER40 82120

IP Intelligence at the Door with Integrated iCLASS Reader for Host Systems

The HID EdgeReader IP Access Solution puts control and host interface at the door -- right inside the HID contactless smart card reader. The HID EdgeReader ER40 is a unique iCLASS reader with an IP-enabled intelligent access control processor and host interface solution in a single unit. With the same footprint as a traditional reader, the EdgeReader ER40 provides a complete and full-featured access control hardware/soft- ware infrastructure and contactless smart card capability at "the edge" of the network for OEM software host systems. A perfect solution for new building installations, the EdgeReader ER40 requires less wiring and controls every access function at the door.

The cost-effective EdgeReader ER40 is ideally suited for today's IT-centric security environment, addressing the requirements for an IP-based solution incorporating PoE capability that takes advantage of existing CAT-5 cable infrastructure.

The EdgeReader ER40 can be fully integrated into any host system utilizing an IP network software interface.
