CHELMSFORD, Mass., Sep 25, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Axis Communications, the global leader in network video surveillance, today introduces AXIS A4011-E Reader. The reader has an ergonomic design with an illuminated keypad and clearly identifiable symbols. It supports touch-free entry with most entry card formats and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation. AXIS A4011-E will be featured in the Axis booth (#1023) at ASIS International in Atlanta from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.
“A year ago Axis announced its entry into the physical access control market with the industry’s first non-proprietary, open IP-based AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller at ASIS International,” said Bruce Stewart, business development manager, access control, Axis Communications, Inc. “Today we expand this offering with the introduction of AXIS A4011-E Reader, which is based on proven technology from ASSA ABLOY. This feature-rich and future-proof door reader is suitable for most installations, meeting our customers’ demands for a total solution.”
The new AXIS A4011-E Reader has an intuitive user interface with illuminated symbols and a sound indicator to clearly display the status and communicate with the user. The keypad features backlight illumination and durable stainless steel buttons.
AXIS A4011-E is a future-proof and generic reader that supports several different card formats in order to meet specific system requirements. It can handle two different card formats simultaneously, which simplifies system expansion and enables easy migration from one card technology to another.
Axis first entered the physical access control market with the launch of AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller last year. AXIS A1001 is an independent unit that can be installed at each door, completed with third-party door accessories such as sensors, door locks and readers. Although AXIS A1001 is compatible with most standard readers, AXIS A4011-E is specifically designed to work with AXIS A1001 for easy configuration.
Additional features of AXIS A4011-E Reader include:
— Support for most 13.56 MHz card formats such as iCLASS, MIFARE Classic, MIFARE Plus, MIFARE DESFire EV1 and SEOS
— Built-in tamper switches between housing and wall
— High reading speed
— Operating conditions: -13F to 158F
— IP54 rating
AXIS A4011-E Reader is expected to be available in selected countries in Q4 2014 through Axis’ standard distribution channels at the suggested retail price of $369.
