Why Access Control?
Nothing is more vital to the health of an organization than making sure that its people, material assets and operations are safe and secure. Access control addresses the full scope of risks that might arise, including risks that other security systems such as burglar alarms and intrusion detection simply are not designed to handle. By preventing people from entering places where they do not belong, access control protects against theft as well as liability and disruption to your operations. Access control can also integrate with other security and operational systems to give you a comprehensive, cohesive management tool.
Access control enhances security by eliminating the need for keys, which are easily lost or duplicated & disappear when terminated employees fail to return them. By using our access control badges instead, you can quickly & conveniently adjust or delete privileges any time an employee's status changes. If you install our access control software on a networked system, you can even perform these tasks from a remote location. Avoiding the annual expense of re-keying a facility is just one of the many financial benefits you will accrue from investing in an access control system from Magen Security.
Bar Code Reader & Cards
The BC-301 Bar Code Reader uses inexpensive bar code cards and reads most common code formats , including Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5, UPC/EAN and Codabar. The readers are fully weatherproof and its tough shell is made of carbon-filled polycarbonate for extra durability. The bar code reader connects to the access control system via a simple Weigand interface.
Magnetic Stripe Card Readers
The Polaris-2 series provides the right combination of quality and reliability. A card can be swiped through the reader in both directions and the reader’s microprocessor automatically detects and rejects read errors. The reader has four different configurable output modes (26-bit Wiegand, 34-bit Wiegand, ABA-Clock & Data and ABA-Wiegand), so that readers can be installed on existing systems. The different output modes are obtained by connecting the proper wires during installation, to program the reader. The mode can be changed by simply powering the reader down and rewiring it for the new mode. The “*” push-button on the keypad of the POL-2KP is a dry contact with a 50 mA power rating. It can be connected to an alarm panel or to an intercom’s door call input, for example.
Magen Security has partnered with industry leaders to provide a high-security personnel identification system using biometrics to establish an imposter-free identity database and to verify the identity of authorized persons. Access control biometrics includes everything that requires identity authentication by scanning a person's unique physical characteristics such as fingerprints and hand geometry. Biometrics offers a superior combination of strength, affordability, convenience and ease of use. It is used where high security is a necessity such as hospitals, police, the military as well as the financial industry.
In addition to biometric identification, these solutions also offer a verification process using a card credential. These biometric solutions are available with an integrated card reader or can be connected to an external reader. Both the fingerprint reader and the hand scanner can be integrated into Magen’s access control system
Magen Multi-Technology Readers provide a multi-protocol, multi-frequency solution that reads multiple 13.56 MHz smart card technologies, MIFARE® encrypted sectors, and most of the common 125 kHz proximity cards including ioProx with XSF format - all from one reader. The readers are perfect if you want to transition to smart cards over time or if you want to utilize both smart cards and proximity cards at your facility. Magen Multi-Technology Readers make access control more powerful, more versatile, and more cost-effective by allowing you to implement a smart card solution over time. While you are transitioning to smart cards, the Multi-Technology Readers will read both the existing collection of proximity cards and smart cards.
These keypads are constructed of stainless steel and feature a one-piece rugged, compact and vandal resistant design. The keypad contains no moving parts and uses a proprietary piezo electric technology ensuring that the 12 digit keypad will perform reliably in even the most demanding environments. For maximum flexibility two LEDs (red and green) are user programmable and an annunciator beeps with each key press.
In busy environments like casinos, Magen door controllers help to prevent the public from wandering into restricted areas where they don’t belong. You can make security and building operations even more effective by integrating our door controllers with alarm panels, HVAC systems, and CCTV systems, such as those from American Dynamics.
The Magen door controller range offers support for single door installations (using the KT-1 one door controller), as well as medium to large sized installations.
Telephone Entry System
The Magen Telephone Entry System (MTES) is an ideal entry system for small, medium, and large sites with an existing access control system, or applications that require telephone entry access only. The system provides visitor access control to apartment buildings, gated communities, condominiums, office buildings, and industrial sites. A tenant communicates directly with a visitor using the MTES and can grant or deny admittance directly from a telephone land line or cellular phone with the touch of a button. The MTES is simple and easy to install, can co-exist with Magen controllers and can be remotely managed using EntraPass software. A simplified version of the EntraPass software is included with the MTES for fast configuration & firmware upgrades, live transaction monitoring & system backup.
Exit Control Devices
With T. Rex request to exit detector and PB-EXIT control button, Magen creates a new standard and provides a complete solution to exit detection and door surveillance for access control applications.
Door Strike Locks
These commercial and industrial rated door strikes can withstand the traffic involved with access control applications. And the solid construction electromagnetic locks will provide years of maintenance-free operation.
An electric door strike allows doors to remain locked to public access (usually on the exterior side of the door). However, the door may still be opened quickly and easily from the inside without the use of a key. These commercial and industrial rated door strikes can withstand the traffic involved with access control applications. They are tested to 500,000 cycles. These strikes are fail-secure for free exit applications. They can be used with cylindrical, narrow line and mortise locks with centerline latch entry. The strikes are listed under UL1034, ANSI/BHMA E09321 and New York City MEA 404-91-M.
An Electromagnetic + Mag Locks these solid construction electromagnetic locks will provide years of maintenance-free operation. Dual voltage (12-24 VDC) operation and up to 680 kg (1,500 lbs) of holding force fits most requirements. The supervised option (ML831SCSC28 model only) provides lock status information (locked or unlocked) and will detect reduced holding force due to the presence of materials between magnet and armature, or power loss.
