SC West, one of the most important security and access control events in the world, just closed its doors. With new trends taking effect at an astonishing rate, access control manufacturers constantly need to improve safety, performance, and connectivity of their equipment. Here are three access control trends we learned about at ISC West.
Real-Time Speed Control of a Brushless DC Motor via Ethernet
Ethernet connectivity is overtaking traditional fieldbuses for an increasing array of functions. Faster data rates and easy industrial implementation are among the numerous technological advances. Motors with integrated industrial communication protocols simplify operation.
Bluetooth Connectivity for Easy Parameter Functionality
The ability to program the software through a smartphone app simplifies the installation phase. The app is typically available for free from either Google Play or the Apple Store. The operator can analyze & adjust all the parameters from a distance of up to 250ft. from the drive. Thus, Bluetooth connectivity keeps users from having to enter hazardous or difficult-to-reach work areas.
Increased Automation for Heavy Gate Operators
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) are frequently requested to help gate manufacturers adapt to a variety of conditions or parameters by incorporating a PLC with various sensors (pressure, photo-electric, etc.). The usage of Crouzet’s limit switches eliminates the need for additional connectors, giving the ability to provide a custom length cable to reduce manufacturing costs.
Facial Recognition and Registration Plate Reading
Two-factor authentication improves recognition accuracy of authorized drivers and passengers. The system must be able to capture and recognize driver and passenger faces through heaviest tinted windows under different weather conditions up to distances of 15 meters. It also should initiate registration plate recognition. All in just 3 seconds to guarantee faster throughput & better security.
Improving Safety and meeting customers’ needs for innovation
During the three days at the exhibition, Crouzet’s team networked with the companies revolutionizing the industry. Face-to-face discussions were particularly insightful. Sharing knowledge about up-and-coming Access Control trends brings success to businesses who strive to meet the challenging needs of customers.
Crouzet’s engineering expertise, co-design capabilities with innovative products, DC motors & telecontrollers, keep at the forefront of the highest standards for the demanding access control industry.
