Rugged Readers: The Future of Durable Reader Technology

As technology advances, it's becoming increasingly important for businesses to stay ahead of the curve. One key area in which this is especially true is in the realm of access information and credential scanning. That's why the team at ProdataKey is proud of one of our newest products: The Rugged Readers.

What are Rugged Readers?

Rugged Readers are high-tech scanning devices specifically designed to be as durable as possible. They are built to withstand the toughest working conditions, and they're capable of withstanding dust, extreme temperatures, and water with an IP68 rating. In addition, Rugged Readers have an IK10 rating ensuring vandalism won’t be an issue. This means that they're ideal for use in a variety of industries.

Why are Rugged Readers so important?

There are several reasons why Rugged Readers are becoming increasingly popular. Firstly, they provide businesses with a more reliable way of collecting and transferring access control information to the cloud such as exit and enter information and who has come in and out of your building. With a Rugged Reader, you'll never have to worry about losing important information due to a damaged or broken reader. This is because Rugged Readers are built to last, and they're designed to perform even under the most adverse conditions.

Another important benefit of Rugged Readers is that they're straightforward to use. They're equipped with various user-friendly features, including PIN keypads and simple connectivity options. This means that even those with limited technical experience can use and install them with ease.

The Rugged Readers are designed to be vandal-proof, and their IK10 rating makes them the ideal solution for businesses operating in challenging environments where vandalism is a common problem. These readers are built with a sturdy, impact-resistant casing that can withstand the most challenging conditions, including tampering and intentional damage. Whether you're dealing with rough handling or malicious attempts to destroy your equipment, you can trust that the Rugged Readers will keep working and provide accurate access information.

Another key benefit is the added security provided by optional two-factor authentication on keypad Rugged Readers. This requires users to provide both their credentials and a PIN to gain access, adding an extra layer of protection. This feature makes the Rugged Readers with PINs an ideal solution for businesses looking for a reader that is built to last while still providing impeccable security.

Finally, Rugged Readers are designed to be cost-effective. They offer an affordable solution for businesses looking to find a durable reader that can withstand rough environments without breaking the bank.
