SciTech Wireless Solves Security Access Control Issues For Leading Testing And Calibration Lab Cascade Metrology With Innovative Wireless Technology

REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cascade Metrology knows a thing or two about quality instrumentation. The company is responsible for testing and calibrating Speed Measuring Devices (Doppler radars and lidars) used by law enforcement agencies and other sensitive instruments used in laboratory settings by fortune 500 companies. When Cascade moved its metrology labs to a new space, engineers took the opportunity to vet a selection of wireless access control systems. After careful testing, the clear winner was SciTech Wireless ( SciTech's WILDR (Wireless Interface Low Power Digital Radio) solution represents the gold standard in secure, wireless access control.

Access control systems (ACS) are essential for any security-conscious locale, such as a corporate office, warehouse, airport, industrial facility or gated community. At entry points, users gain access via badge swipe. In traditional access control infrastructures, Access Control Panels are hard-wired (as a minimum) to card readers, door locking mechanisms, position sensors, and request-to-exit switches. Control Panels are wired to a centralized server computer running the system management and monitoring software. SciTech Wireless developed a wireless solution called WILDR that eliminates the need for most, if not all, of these wires. Instead, information travels over secure radio frequencies. In the event of power failure, the devices have battery back-up capability.

"Three years after initial deployment, SciTech continues to provide superior service and technology to Cascade Metrology Labs," said Cascade General Manager, Seyed Javad. "The metrology labs frequently modify their floor plans to accommodate different testing environments. WILDR allows this without the heavy construction of moving conduits and rewiring control panels. The company sees a significant return on investment every time a wall or door must be relocated."

Additional benefits of wireless deployment are evident through the entire lifecycle of the system. Installation of a wireless system takes a fraction of the time required for hard wiring. It's also less expensive and less arduous, both initially and in the long term. With multiple data ports (RS-232, RS485, RS422, Wiegand, Clock & data), the WILDR unit can interface seamlessly with any existing access control system. The badge reader interface has a data buffer capacity of 8184 bits, allowing for custom, organization-specific data lengths, including FIPS- 201, HSPD-12, and PIV.
