IDTronic Releases New Turnstile RFID Gate Readers

IDTronic has announced the availability of its ID Gate 7500 and ID Gate 8000 RFID turnstile readers.

The ID Gate 7500 is IP 44-rated, indicating that it is applicable for indoor and outdoor use. For example, the company reports, the reader is suitable for fitness studios, indoor swimming pools, waterparks, wellness resorts, theme parks and other outdoor applications.

The reader's housing and barrier arms are made of stainless steel. The reader features an LED display on both sides that indicates status and direction. The display shows a customer where to hold his or her card or wristband to verify authorization for entry into a particular area. In addition, the turnstile reader has an extra indication of passage direction on its side posts.

The turnstile is connected to a remote panel allowing the ID Gate 7500 to be controlled from a reception area. If the turnstile receives an emergency signal, or if it is switched off, automatic folding arms come down, enabling evacuation.

The ID Gate 8000 reader features a housing of colored artificial stone and is suitable for use in wellness areas. The reader is composed of stainless steel and can be selected with optional coatings and colors.

The reader, designed for access-control applications, features LED illumination that indicates whether or not a person is authorized for entry. A green light signifies an individual is authorized, while a red stop signal indicates that the turnstile is closed and entry is denied via that location.
