New aptiQ multi-technology readers from Ingersoll Rand

Leading global provider of security and safety solutions Ingersoll Rand has launched aptiQ™, a series of multi-technology readers designed to simplify the transition from older security platforms, such as proximity 125kHZ, to smart technology. The new range of electronic access control readers includes the ability to read a variety of contactless technology platforms, such as proximity, XceedID® MIFARE®, and aptiQ™ MIFARE DESFire™ EV1 smart card. The readers are also Near Field Communication (NFC) compliant, giving users the ability to migrate to mobile credentials in the future. To maintain the highest security levels, the aptiQ™ reader allows mutually encrypted communication between the card, reader and diversified keys, which protect data integrity and prevent unauthorised access. Paul Taylor, Sales Leader for electronic access control products at Ingersoll Rand, said: “The aptiQ™ readers are a superior product from both an aesthetic and technological point of view. Our new product range is designed to provide installers with unique advantages over others available on the market today.  Existing proximity systems can be expanded and upgraded to SMART technology with ease, whilst the simplified offering allows one reader to be carried to cover virtually all their maintenance requirements.” “We are so confident that installers will love the new AptiQ range”, he continues, “that we are offering 100 installers an MT15 unit free of charge as part of a Try Me campaign. Anyone interested in receiving one should email lisa_jones@eu.irco.com or call 01922 707400.” The aptiQ™ readers come in four contemporary designs with various colour options to complement a range of décors. Installation is made quick and easy using a simplified mounting bracket and a ‘plug and go’ wiring harness which enables prewiring in new construction and allows for easy maintenance in the future.  For more information about Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies please visit www.ingersollrand.co.uk.
