The FD-020-230 Alpha reader is a dual-protocol reader. Thanks to a switch, the output switches from Wiegand to RS485.
The RS485 mode is specially developed for iPassan and increases the reader-controller distance to 1,000 m compared to 100 m for Wiegand.
In Wiegand mode, the reader is compatible with a wide array of controllers on the market.
It is designed to integrate the Urmet Alpha modular door entry panel system.
Key/reader security is optimal as FDI Mifare® Plus keys are used. These keys boast production-encoded AES 128 bit security that the Alpha reader checks when reading the key.
Finally, this reader is totally configurable via the web portal https://partner.fdimatelec.com/
The Wiegand output format, the LED behaviour as well as the type and security of the keys/passes to manage is defined on the screen and then encoded in a configuration key/pass that is also secure.
When this configuration key is shown to the reader, the reader integrates the new settings.
- Reader default-compatible with FDI Mifare® Classic and Mifare® Plus (AES 128 bit encryption)
- Configurable Wiegand protocol
- Integrated LEDs and buzzer
- Firmware can be updated remotely in RS485 mode
The Alpha reader draws its power supply from the FDI access controller.
In RS485 mode, the reader two-way communicates permanently (FDI protocol) with the iPassan controller. As such, the controller is real-time aware if the reader is connected as well as its status.
In Wiegand mode, the reader sends a frame to the connected controller as soon as a recognized key/pass is presented.
