STANLEY Product & Technology, the leading provider of security and access control solutions, has announced the introduction of its next generation display card reader – PACOM 8707. Developed around the company’s highly successful PACOM Unison platform, PACOM 8707 will initially be available in the Nordics, with the intention to roll it out across other countries and regions in due course.

PACOM 8707 has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of companies of all sizes that want the most secure access control solution possible. As the first line of defence against those wishing to infiltrate operational technology systems and information, PACOM 8707 incorporates state-of-the-art card management and authentication, and supports all generations of the MIFARE protocol, including MIFARE Classic, MIFARE Plus (Levels 1 and 3), as well as MIFARE DESFire EV1 and MIFARE DESFire EV2. It also supports radio frequency identification (RFID) based cards and the Wiegand over the air protocol.

In order to provide an enhanced level of protection against hackers, PACOM 8707 also supports the latest version of the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) to ensure that sniffing devices can’t be installed behind the reader or along the communications path. The use of OSDP also allows means the card reader can safely interface with control panels or other security management systems.

When used in modern commercial buildings, display card readers not only have to offer a high level of security and performance – they have to look good and be user friendly too. These elements have been designed into PACOM 8707 with a timeless and user-friendly design that is based around a cutting edge organic lighting emitting diode (OLED) display. This offers a solution that is much sharper than traditional liquid crystal displays (LCD) and can be read at wider angles and brighter light conditions, ensuring the information is readable in almost any environmental condition.

The screen itself can be used to display both text and graphics, facilitating customisation and the opportunity to, for example, incorporate corporate logos or provide basic instructions to users on what action to take next. This is all made possible thanks to 16 backlit buttons, which are also designed to be accessible to people with disabilities.

Remote and local programming and configuration couldn't be easier. Programming cards or manual card reader programming devices are not required, as the downloading of encryption keys is carried out from PACOM Unison software, which then configures the card reader along with the rest of the security system. Alternatively, it can be locally configured through the OLED display when installed by an on-site systems integrator. Furthermore, the PACOM 8707 is highly flexible and its 10-30V DC range can accept a wider range of input voltages, ensuring that it can be installed in nearly any environment both indoors and outdoors.

Gavin O'Keeffe, Global Technical Director at STANLEY Product & Technology, commented, ‘The PACOM 8707 sets a new standard in display card reader technology and elevates the functionality and performance capabilities of the PACOM Unison platform. The features we have introduced in PACOM 8707 make it the most secure, functional, flexible and user friendly device of its kind and it will meet the ever-growing demands of end users, as well cementing our leading market position.’
