HID Signo toughened up for harsh environments

by Geny Caloisi

HID announced the availability of the new HID Signo Mechanical Keypad Reader 40T, engineered to offer high performance in harsh and challenging environments where the weather is wet or cold and visibility is low. 

The new reader has a robust IP-65-rated construction – meaning the electrical components are dust-proof and watertight – along with a traditional mechanical push-button keypad, which makes it easy to use when wearing gloves or where some building users are visually impaired due to low-light conditions.

“As a high-performance reader with reliable features for harsh environments, it’s a great offering for customers who have a preference or specification for a traditional mechanical device,” says Spencer Marshall, HID’s Head of Europe. “It also comes with all the security and mobile-ready features you’d expect from our signature range of Signo readers, providing customers with the utmost flexibility. Whether using the keypad, smartphones, fobs, or cards, users can gain fast and easy entry into buildings.”

The new Signo 40T Reader comes with the following key features: 

Digital wallet ready, the new reader supports a wide range of credential technologies, including HID Mobile Access®, via native Bluetooth and near-field communication (NFC) capability. This means users get touch-less entry without having to open additional apps. 

Highly secure storage of cryptographic keys on certified secure element hardware, plus a new surface detection feature that enables automatic recalibration and optimisation of read range performance, the new Signo 40T Reader sets a new standard for enhanced security indoor applications

With out-of-the-box support for Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) for secure bidirectional communication, the new Signo 40T Reader is designed to easily integrate and fit without requiring considerable time or unnecessary extra cost from installation engineers. 

The reader is also designed to enable remote management. The new HID Signo Mechanical Keypad Reader 40T is available today in Nordic countries including Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
