Suprema, Inc., a leading global provider of technology in biometrics and security, recently announced the launch of a new model of IP access control multi-smartcard reader and controller, ‘Xpass S2’.
Compared to its predecessor Xpass Slim, Xpass S2 is remarkably enhanced in RF performance as it now supports reading of various more card technology standards including MiFare, DESFire, ISO14443A/B, ISO15693 and FeliCa, as well as NFC. It also reads and writes data on the card sectors.
In addition, with IP65 ingress protection rating, Xpass S2is equipped with built-in adaptive heater and works under a harsh environment at a wide operational temperate range of -35? to 65?. It also supports expanded capacity, up to 50,000 user badges and 100,000 event logs for enterprise level organisations as well as small and medium sized businesses.
Xpass S2 comes not only with TCP/IP interface, but also more traditional interfaces such as RS485 and Wiegand to provide higher flexibility and multiple installation options for different environments. A built-in relay and a configurable Wiegand interface enable Xpass S2 to be used as a standalone controller with other 3rd party readers.
The device is designed by focusing on satisfying both aesthetic and practical aspects, featuring multi-colour LED indicator and extra slim profile of 11.4 mm. Measuring 80 mm of height and 120 mm of width, it perfectly fits switchboxes for most US, EU and APAC countries to provide easier installation.
“The Xpass S2 is the latest addition to our growing access control lineup and provides extra flexibility for our customers in designing their access control systems with or without biometric solutions,” said Young S. Moon, Vice President of Suprema Inc. “Along with our biometric access control system, the Xpass S2 is expected to set Suprema as a leader in IP access control, meeting various needs for flexibility, complexity and scalability”
