The Census®

The Census® "Label" reader can simultaneously interrogate tags up to 1.0 metre from the reader's face. The range can be reduced to 500mm using a selector link. The RF communications between each Census® tag and reader are scrambled to eliminate the chance of simulated
tokens being used.

The "Label" reader is suitable for flush mounting directly on a wooden door when it produces a profile of 4.5mm. A 10mm spacer is provided to enable surface mounting on glass or other surfaces. The unit is designed to secure directly to a standard electrical switch back box for flush mounting on a wall. It is also suitable for pole mounting when used for car park applications.

The reader can be configured with a number of output options including "open format" 26 bit Wiegand, special format Wiegand or Clock & Data. These outputs are complemented with an RS232 compatible serial output as standard, thus enabling two data acquisition systems to be addressed simultaneously.

The product is suitable for numerous applications, they include but are not limited to:

  • Hands Free Access Control
  • Car Parking Control
