IEI Products Highlighted in Product Line Catalog
IEI has produced a definitive catalog containing comprehensive information on all of the company's products offered in the marketplace. The Product Line Catalog is a 56 page, high quality piece with information on IEI's Access Systems, Stand Alone Access Control, Electronic Access Control Locksets, Accessories, and Intrusion Detection products.
John Murzycki, IEI's Senior Marketing Director said, "From a strategic perspective, it is critical that our customers understand the wide range of products that we provide and how to apply the right solution for their particular application. Dealers purchasing IEI products should obtain a copy of this catalog to provide them with helpful information on our complete product line."
The prox.pad plus IR, using infra-red wireless technology, is IEI's latest product addition. This fully integrated controller with proximity reader and keypad compliments the LS2 Series locksets. All communication to and from the prox.pad plus IR and the LS2 Series locksets is achieved using IEI's wireless infra-red "Data Transport Device" (DTD).
The prox.pad plus IR provides entry level to mid-sized access control functionality with the use of two onboard relays and two inputs for request to exit and door position monitoring. By using the proximity reader and keypad together, a higher level of security is achieved by requiring both to grant access.
The prox.pad plus IR can be directly mounted to a single gang electrical box or to most flat surfaces. Enhanced system functionality is achieved when managed with IEI's Hub Manager Professional software. The software allows the management of people and doors through fast and easy report creation and step-by-step wizards that assist in adding expanded feature functionality.
