Product Features & Benefits

The access control card validation and capture pedestal is fitted with Nortech’s MRC350-NR01 externally rated card capture reader together with a card hopper for the collection of captured cards. The card capture reader can support a wide range of contactless card types by the integration of an appropriate card reader. The retrieval of access cards can be made through a lockable access door that is separate to the maintenance access door.

Optionally, the pedestal can be fitted with an intercom for which there are several options available.

The pedestal height is ideally suited to normal cars and vans as well as pedestrians. For vehicles with a higher driver position, the pedestal can be mounted on a raised plinth.

The main body of the pedestal can be finished in user specific colours.

There is space within the pedestal for the installation of a third-party access control unit.
