Products combine iClass access control reader, electric strike, position switch


PHOENIX, AZ (October 4, 2010) – HES, Inc. announces the release of its iCLASS integrated products, a unique combination of HID iCLASS access control technology and HES electric strikes. These convenient, one-box solutions offer installers and integrators the sophisticated technology of HID iCLASS access control with the physical security of an HES electric strike in a pre-integrated package for a consistent installation experience door after door.

Each HES iCLASS integrated product features a low-profile mullion reader built on HID 13.56MHz iClass technology, a best-in-class HES electric strike with latchbolt monitor and a door position switch. The solutions provide standard Wiegand output for compatibility with most online Access Control Systems.

Engineered to incorporate many popular HES electric strikes, the innovative HES iCLASS solutions offer consolidated wiring and integrated connections. The unique design provides added protection for sensitive access control components by concealing them securely in the frame, increasing security, tamper resistance, and durability. Only the modular reader antenna is exposed.

The HES iClass Integrated Products join the HES Integrated Proximity Solutions in HES’ family of products geared toward providing convenience to system integrators.
