Client has a secure fence line that requires access control at all gates. These gates accept access for both commercial and non-commercial traffic, which each using differing access technologies. The solution requires the mounting of two readers of differing technologies (card and keypad, for example) at appropriate height for either vehicle type, but how does the reader configuration allow for this requirement?
The Mercury definition:
The Alternate Reader feature is the ability for a set of readers to be present on the same side of a controlled opening, allowing identification credentials to be presented at either reader for an access request.
The Mercury answer:
Using the Mercury AP3502 or EP51E, in conjunction with a double goose neck stand, readers can be installed on either side of a controlled opening. These readers can be logically linked together, yet function independently when access identification is presented to either one. When access rights are granted the same relay will function as programmed to unlock the opening.
