The Ekinex access control system is based on transponder technology, exploiting all its flexibility and security. The devices are fully compatible with the KNX system and can be combined with the FF and 71 series of Ekinex KNX wall-mounted devices. The ekinex access control system combines comfort and energy saving in the best possible way; it is particularly suitable for hotel buildings, where it allows flexible and advanced systems to be created, optimising the services for guests.
The Ekinex EK-TR2-TP card reader is used to access the room. The device is installed outside the room or other hotel rooms that need to be reserved for access. Each card is equipped with an electronic circuit and, once it is close to the reader, it transmits the unique access code. Entry is permitted or denied depending on the authorisation available.
The Ekinex EK-TH2-TP card pocket is used for presence detection. The device is installed inside the room; the card is inserted by the guest in the special slot. With this very simple gesture, the guest will active all the systems included in the room (typically the lighting, the air conditioning or the socket for the television). At the same time, the presence is notified to the supervision software EK-TSW installed on the PC of the reception. Information on the status of the room (such as the need to rearrange, to replenish the bar, the need for maintenance or the inability to use the room) is instead notified to the reception by the hotel staff, thanks to use of dedicated cards (master-card).
The devices are made with dimensions equal to 2 modules in Italian standard (44 x 44 mm), are powered by 12-24 V AC/DC and can be installed on a square flush-mounting box (2 places) in Italian standard or on a round flush-mounting box with fixing holes distance equal to 60 mm. Both have a relay output from 4A to 24V and a freely programmable binary input; the output can be used to control loads, while the binary input allows the connection of devices such as the tie rod for the bathroom alarm or a contact for opening doors or windows. Being based on KNX technology, the only open standard worldwide for home and building control, the devices offer maximum flexibility of use and functional versatility.
The programming of the cards and the configuration of the devices can be performed from the reception or from another location where the programmer module is installed, connected to a PC with the programming and supervision software EK-TSW installed.
