Farpointe Data announced its new mullion keypad reader that supports popular proximity card and tag technologies with an integrated keypad for two-factor verification applications. The mullion-sized proximity card reader features an 8-inch read range for increased convenience as the user enters a PIN on the keyboard. Since many of the mullion keypad units will be used outdoors or in dusty environments, the mullion-sized proximity/keypad combination is designed to meet IP67 certification. The unit features tamper-proof and weather-resistant epoxy potting to avoid problems with dust, mist or water. It works in temperature extremes from -40°F to 149°F (-40°C to 65°C). With distinctive blue backlit keys, the digits are very easy to read in dark environments. The mullion keypad reader mounts directly to a standard-sized wall switch box or any flat surface.
