Long Range Access Control

The long-range reader can be used to open a gate from a vehicle.  It can also be used for other long-range applications. It has a range of up to 39 ft.

Gate Access Control System Diagram

The long-range system consists of the TVIPUHF-LR long-range reader, TVIP-Procontrol160-Kit access control box, and access control software that runs on your Windows computer.

The long-range reader connects to the access control box through a serial Wiegand type connection. The control box and the computer are both connected to the local area network.  The software controls all the credentials. If the credential is accepted, the control box sends a signal (relay connection) to open the gate.

Long-range access system diagram

The long-range access control reader uses higher frequencies, such as 865MHz, or 902MHz.  Since this is a different frequency than the standard door readers, the credentials are different. These special credentials are available as a card or as a stick-on tag for the vehicle.

The same access control software (TVIPTirSoft) controls standard readers. This means that all the readers can be integrated into the organization’s system (except using different credentials).  You can select IP door access readers that use proximity credentials, or even biometric readers.
