Total Package: Breaking Down the Best RFID Access Control Software and Equipment

Exploring the EMX Patriot Reader

The EMX Patriot series offers long-range UHF RFID reading capabilities through circularly polarized equipment designed to deliver long-lasting performance and blend in seamlessly with your environment. They boast an impressive range of 18-25 ft and meet RS232, RS485, and OSDP standards. With a variable 9 to 48VDC input voltage and the ability to support multiple Wiegand bit formats, it’s designed to be tailored to your system and requirements. 

Designed for plug-and-play installation, it comes with a reader, power supply, mounting bracket, and a test tag. Simplify set-up and prepare your system for success with its easy-to-read LED indicator and adjustable levels, allowing you to control the LED timing, buzzer settings, and relay output.

The Patriot can store up to 500 authorized tag numbers in the reader itself for access control without a door controller, which amplifies its value and versatility. It’s compatible with all EMX RFID credentials, while also providing some functionality for generic EPC UHF Gen2 tags. This unique solution is capable of delivering strong standalone performance, but its capabilities are expanded when paired with the Defender. 

Exploring the EMX Defender 

The TRES Defender dual relay access controller pairs with the Patriot reader to deliver full-scale functionality. It offers a streamlined solution for access management and can handle up to 20,000 users with an audit trail that allows you greater oversight into what’s happening with each vehicle or pedestrian gate. It can also simultaneously manage multiple gates and still allow for a seamless and safe flow of traffic. Four doors can be read and controlled at once, making it the perfect choice for apartment buildings, office complexes, and other high-usage areas with multiple access points. 

The Defender carries a compact design and comes compatible with standard protocols so you can feel confident it will fit into your environment and system. It also integrates with modern networks and delivers reliable performance with a diverse range of customization opportunities to tailor it to exactly what you need. It comes in two styles — a PCB model and another kit option that comes with everything you need for a complete solution.

When you want to level up your oversight and control within your facility’s security, turn to the Defender to advance your RFID reader’s capabilities and expand what you can do.
