card reader system

Controls access/use of machinery, alarms and lighting

The Thomas Access Control Active Presence Card Reader System offers a secure method of enabling and disabling equipment and machinery, alarm systems, facility lighting, power and more.

By placing a valid card in the Active Presence Reader, the reader will trigger a built-in relay to activate what is being controlled on its own, or only after a validation signal from a connected access control panel is received. Removing the card deactivates the onboard relay and sends a second signal to the connected access control panel. The continued presence of the user’s card is required to keep the connected device/system active.

Active Presence Reader Only

Working with standard HID and AWID 125 kHz proximity cards and Wiegand compatible access control panels, the Active Presence Reader allows for simple integration with many existing systems.

Active Presence Complete Kit

The Active Presence Reader can also be purchased as a complete kit which includes the reader, access controller, power supply, software and 5 starter cards. With the Cansec SmartLock® Pro Plus controller and software included in the system, adding card holders and granting access is made simple.
