Access Control System

Access Control SystemsSystems

Access control systems are an excellent way of managing who can enter a building. what parts of a building they are allowed access to and when they can access any area. The system will also log all events (doors open /closing etc.) and by whom and at what time. It can also log when a valid try of the door was attempted and by whom. The electronic access control system grants access based on the credential presented. When access is granted, the door is unlocked for a predetermined time and the transaction is recorded. When access is refused, the door remains locked and the attempted access is recorded. The system will also monitor the door and alarm if the door is forced open or held open too long after being unlocked.

Access control systems are made up of a controller, keypad and access control devices wired to the controller to control doors and gates.

The Devices that Can be Used in Access Control System are:

Electromagnetic Lock: This is a powered lock which bonds the faceplate which is attached to the door with the magnet attached to the header of the door. These come in all sizes and holding force to suit most door types.

There are two main types of electric locking devices. Locking devices can be either “fail-safe” or “fail secure.

A fail-secure locking device remains locked when power is lost. Fail-safe locking devices are unlocked when de-energized. Direct pull electromagnetic locks are inherently fail-safe.

electromagnetic locks are offered in both 600 lbs. and 1200 lbs. dynamic holding force capacities.

There are two types of EM Locks:


The single door is there and there are single lock and single magnetic control.


Two-door are there and there is double locks and double magnetic lock.

There are two types of Mounting:



Reader: This reader requires a valid card to be swiped at the reader to gain access to a door. The access rights of the card will determine whether access is a grant or declined. It provides the perfect balance between reliable functionality and design aesthetics to meet security needs.

Categories of Access Control ReaderReader

Card Reader : A card reader is a data input device that reads data from a card-shaped storage medium.

Keypad Reader : By using a 4-8-digit code allows access if the code is valid. The keypad allows multiple users with individual access codes. The Swipe and Proximity readers all can have addition keypads which means both methods must be used to gain access for higher security access.

BioMatric Reader : There are several forms of biometric identification employed in access control: fingerprint, hand geometry, iris, Voice Recognition, and facial recognition. Biometric technology has been promoted for its ability to significantly increase the security level of systems. Proponents claim that the technology eliminates such problems as lost, stolen or loaned ID cards and forgotten PINs
