Terminal Sonda ACD-5

Terminal Sonda ACD-5

Sonda ACD-5 terminal combines three devices: fingerprint reader, proximity reader for EM-Marine cards or Mifare, controller of the actuators (turnstiles, electromagnetic locks and bolts).

The terminal is designed for biometric access control and time tracking systems. The terminal perfectly suits any kind of turnstiles and is ideal for office and industrial premises. The device is to be installed separately for entrance and exit. It easily integrates into any existing access control system.

High optical resolution of the sensor enables accurate and rapid processing of even very difficult to read fingerprints.
