They’ll endure truly rough handling

26.04.2017

Having a tough access control reader is essential at sites with higher risk for vandalism. It’s another reason why Idesco readers are designed and built to unsurpassed durability and reliability.

IK-09 to IK-10 durability ratings

Almost all Idesco’s popular reader housings have been tested against the SFS-EN 62262 durability standard. Basic and Quattro housings were consistently graded class IK-10 (withstanding impacts of 20 joules), while Slim housings scored class IK-09 (withstanding 10 joules impacts).

Epoxy potting

Probably the biggest reason Idesco readers score so well is because their electronics are deeply secured in hard epoxy potting. This tough epoxy shields the reader’s electronics particularly well against impacts, but also protects them against damage by environmental conditions such as moisture and dust.

Keypads have no moving parts

Most keypads are easily damaged with simple tools by a casual vandal. Worse, they easily collect ice or dirt that block their movement. That is why most Idesco keypads are designed and built entirely without moving parts. Instead, electronics for detecting key pressure are embedded safely under the reader’s cover. That makes Idesco keypads, with no moving keys, much more durable and reliable.

Tamper alarm

Finally, if an Idesco reader connected to your system is either violently removed from its location or even subtly tampered with, it automatically informs your system with a tamper alarm signal.
