“The addition of the Farpointe Data long-range reader and transmitters allows AMAG to offer our customers an access control solution for applications where a door or barrier needs to be opened from a long distance, such as for vehicle access applications,” said Dave Ella, vice-president of product marketing, AMAG Technology.

Farpointe Data’s Ranger® long-range readers and transmitters allow doors, gates or barriers to open or close up to 61 m from the high frequency credentials. The readers operate with the Symmetry Access Control software and all three controller product lines: Symmetry M2150, Symmetry SR Controller or Symmetry EN door controller and do not require additional software or licenses.

“Ranger receivers are a terrific solution for long range physical access control applications such as entering buildings, lifting gates and vehicle barriers, moving aircraft in and out of secure hangars, arming and disarming alarm systems as well as situations calling for emergency duress,” emphasizes Scott Lindley, Farpointe Data president. “Instead of using a long range card, which could activate more than one device or door at a time, the transmitter holder selects exactly the mechanism to be immediately triggered.”
