NMR100 TCP/IP enabled magstripe reader

Portable Card Reader TA48 Mini portable magstripe reader
NMR100 Networked Card Reader

The SST NMR100 is a wall-mountable magstripe card reader with built-in RS232, RS485 and TCP/IP interfaces. It is ideal for door access, labor tracking and time-and-attendance systems.

In its simplest form, the SST NMR100's internal memory can be programmed with a list of authorized users and associated schedules, and it can operate as a standalone access control system. Its internal memory can also be programmed to store a record of which user was granted or denied access, as well as when.

For larger or more demanding installations, one or more SST NMR100's can be connected to a host computer, using any of the built-in interfaces. The access log can then be downloaded, either periodically or in real-time, to the host computer. New users can be added or removed from any of the readers over this same connection, and any of the internal settings can be changed in a similar manner. Up to 126 readers can be connected through the RS485 connection, and since each NMR100 gets its own IP address, the TCP/IP connection can support a virtually unlimited number of units.

Installation is easy, using standard modular plugs, and the TCP/IP connection allows for direct connection to a LAN. Power can be provided either locally, or over one of the modular cables. A built-in relay allows activation of a door strike, turnstile gate or similar device, and two sense inputs can be used for connection to door contacts, push-to-exit buttons or motion detectors. Two independent 64K memory buffers allow the unit to easily support and log 5000 users (using 8 digit ID), and all LCD messages are programmable over any of the interfaces.
