Cypress Showcases Wireless Short-Range Duprex RF

Lapeer, MI -- Cypress Computer Systems Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of access control and security related products, will exhibit the short-range wireless DUPREX RF (Dual, Supervised Reader Extender) at ISC West 2005, held in Las Vegas on April 6 - 9, in booth #14108. This cost-efficient solution, built on Cypress?s trusted SUPREX technology, is used to extend the distance between any two access control readers and a controller. With the capacity to span up to 500 feet, the short-range DUPREX eliminates the need for additional controllers and is ideal for applications where hard-wiring is time consuming and costly. Available with weather-proof enclosures, Cypress's DUPREX is designed for easy indoor or outdoor installation, and provides immediate feedback from on-board diagnostics. DUPREX is ideal for multi-location organizations, including building and office complexes, parking gates, and elevator shafts. It features alarm output from the central unit, immediately indicating power or communication loss with the reader at the remote unit.

DUPREX's fully supervised protocol eliminates interference, ensuring that the reader's data will arrive intact through "real world" noise, transients, and other adverse line conditions. Reader technologies include Wiegand readers using swipe, insertion, and proximity formats (8 to 200 bit), and Magnetic Stripe readers using swipe or insertion (up to 253 bits).

DUPREX is also available in a wired version as well as a mid-range and an extended-range Radio Frequency (wireless), Fiber Optic, Ethernet, and single reader models. For more information visit
