  • Works up to 300 m (1000 ft) from the controller, unshielded cable significantly reduces installation costs
  • Quick connect terminal block (P225 & P325 series)
  • Digital signal processing (DSP) for enhanced security
  • Weatherproof design for indoor and outdoor applications
  • Integrated piezo & bi-color LED
  • Integrated tamper switch on P600 (optional on other models)
  • The use of snap-and-lock terminal blocks (P225 and P325 series) allows for easy wiring and saves you time and money
  • Integrated keypad models are ADA-compliant and based on the 8-bit burst industry standard
  • Use the keypad’s * and # buttons in conjunction with the EntraPass software to arm and disarm external alarm panels
  • Kantech XSF readers are compatible only with Kantech software, with access to over 4 billion unique codes that provide increased security and an absolute guarantee against card duplication
  • Extended range makes the P600 long range reader ideal for parking lots and access applications where special consideration is needed to facilitate access
  • Up to 73 cm (29 in) read range (P600)

Bioscrypt™ Fingerprintreader

     Product ImageProduct Image

The Bioscrypt FingerPrint Reader prevents unauthorized access via lost or stolen proximity cards by requiring that the fingerprint of the person requesting entry matches the identity of the cardholder.

This two-in-one solution combines a self-contained fingerprint verification package with an embedded IoProx proximity card reader. The two technologies are housed together in a modern case that conforms to mullion mount standards.

The reader stores thousands of templates, performs verification, and provides standard reader connection in XSF ioProx format (Extended Secure Format) or 26-bit Wiegand format.

The Bioscrypt FingerPrint Reader is perfectly suited for applications where there is an existing ioProx reader system. The reader will use existing cards, but will verify user identity through fingerprinting before allowing access.

Exit Control Devices

T.Rex Request to Exit Detector
                          Product Image   

The smart exit detector                                                               

The T.Rex creates a new standard and provides a complete solution to exit detection and door surveillance for access control applications. Outstanding innovations such as X-Y Targeting™ and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) implementation make the T.Rex the fastest and most reliable exit detector on the market.

X-Y Targeting targets a specific area of detection

While some exit detectors on the market offer adjustments of the detection pattern with masking or horizontal alignment, the T.Rex is the first detector to offer vertical detection targeting using two adjustable louvers located in the detection chamber. The installer "trims" the detection area by adjusting these louvers from 90° down to 5°. Horizontal adjustment is provided by rotation of the lens.    
X-Y Targeting

Added security
These two adjustments allow the installer to mount the detector so that the detection area will not "hit" the floor along the door jamb. This defeats attempts to circumvent door supervision by sliding objects underneath the door. Such objects would be detected by sensors mounted in a traditional way.

T.Rex Exit Detector

DSP prevents "Door Forced Open" alarms
Kantech's T.Rex utilizes infrared detection coupled with DSP sampling specifically designed for access control applications. There is a substantial operational difference between T.Rex and a common infrared intrusion motion detector.
A typical intrusion detector operates at low sensitivity levels and is looking for the positive presence of a human. An exit detector such as T.Rex, however, must detect the extremely fast movement of a hand (the target) about to push the door or turn the door handle. A failure to detect this movement prior to an exit application will actually cause a "Door Forced Open" alarm.

  • Zone of detection is easily adjustable for pinpoint accuracy
  • Hands free, no buttons to push
  • Integrated 90db local door alarm sounder independently controlled by access panel
  • Designed specifically for access control applications
  • Unlocks or shunts door automatically
  • 4 models available
  • Optional backplate allows T.Rex to be mounted on a single gang box

PB-EXIT Control Button

Product Image
The PB-EXIT control button is a spring loaded, square green exit button mounted on a stainless steel plate. The SPDT contacts switch when the button is depressed and return when released.
This button can be used for momentary release of fail-safe or fail-secure electric locks. It may also be used to input an exit signal to the access control system. In some areas, local building or fire safety regulations may limit the use of exit buttons and it is recommended to consult or get approval prior to installing exit buttons.
  • Exit signal dispatch to access control system
  • Mounts on a single gang box
  • Contacts are UL listed with 10AMP capacity

Electric Strikes & Locks  

Electric Door Strikes
These commercial and industrial rated door strikes can withstand the traffic involved with access control applications. They are tested to 500,000 cycles.
These strikes are fail locked (fail-secure) for free exit applications. Do not use to control egress. Can be used with cylindrical, narrow line and mortise locks with centerline latch entry. The strikes are listed under UL10B (fire rated), UL1034, ANSI/BHMA E09321 and New York City MEA 404-91-M.
Product Image
Holding force:

  • 906 kg (2,000 lbs) for fire rated models
  • 634.2 kg (1,400 lbs) for non-fire rated models

Electromagnetic Lock

Electromagnetic Locks
These solid construction electromagnetic locks will provide years of maintenance-free operation. Dual voltage (12-24 VDC) operation and up to 680kg (1,500 lbs) of holding force fits most requirements.
The supervised option (SCS model only) provides lock status information (locked or unlocked) and will detect reduced holding force due to the presence of materials between magnet and armature, or power loss.

  • Dual voltage
  • Adjusting manual bracket
  • MOV surge protection
  • Anodized clear aluminum finish
  • No residual magnetism
  • Easy access wiring cavity
