SciTech Wireless (Redmond, Wash.), a manufacturer and supplier of wireless access control system interfaces globally, is now offering two new products in its WILDR series that are designed to provide better wireless access control scalability and flexibility for data centers.

The company states that its WILDR product family was designed to remove wireless implementation obstacles, including the necessity of long distances requiring trenching.

The company says that use of the platform can also help data centers avoid 'public right-of-way' red-tape, while also avoiding the need for core-drilling to route wires; or surface-mounting wires; or other ways of compensating for lack of conduit space between buildings.

Platform details

The SciTech Wireless WILDR platform provides connectivity between doors and control panels--and between control panels and servers--supporting a variety of architectures, independent of the access control systems manufacturer.

Developed with easy deployment in mind, SciTech notes its products are software transparent to all wired access control suppliers, and can work with any existing wired access control system.

Available modules include:

  • The WILDR-MIU, an Addressable Wireless Master Interface Unit, providing RS-232, RS-485 and RS-422 transceivers.
  • The WILDR-MIU1, an addressable single-door (or access panel) interface radio providing a wireless card-badge-credential reader interface, as well as for door controls (LEDs, electric strike, door position indicator, and REX button).
  • The WILDR-MIU2, an addressable dual-door-panel interface radio suited for rack cabinets (i.e. a virtual cage radio).

Value proposition

In the official product announcement, SciTech Wireless contends that Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) technologies are necessary for every facility, new or old, for purposes of protecting employees, tangible assets, and intellectual property.

However, as further stated by the company, "Every facility has unique security requirements, diverse environments, and special circumstances demanding innovative solutions where standard PACS fall short, or are very expensive to implement."

SciTech Wireless says its family of wireless products supports very high levels of architectural flexibility and scalability to overcome difficult installation challenges, at a "fraction of the cost of a traditional wired set up."
