Access Control Software

Simple yet Powerful. Orbis is the latest innovation in access control software; it breaks new ground in the licence-free security software market with its unparalleled combination of features and practically limitless capacities.

Key to any access control system is the ability to simply and intuitively configure who is able to go where and when. Orbis Software presents the key information of Who, Where and When on a single, simple to use screen, greatly reducing system configuration and administration time and effort.

FEATURES
Other manufacturers would usually add a premium for these features, but with Orbis software they are included as standard.

Licences
Up to 10 client PCs’ licences are included free of charge.

INVIXIUM Biometric Readers
IP-based INVIXIUM fingerprint readers can be connected to an Orbis Controller. This includes extensive customisation options for the behaviour of the reader, anti-shock settings, duress and standard
finger entry. USB connected readers are supported for enrolment only.

Attendance Reports
On demand, simple attendance recording in the Orbis Software generates reports based on access events recorded at configurable site entry and site exit
readers.
Custom Card Formats
Orbis supports the creation of custom card format decoding information, to allow for a wider range of card populations.

Alarm Processing
Equipment can have cameras and graphics associated with them that will be displayed in the alarm handling pop-up screen when an alarm is processed.

Card Format Decoding
Functionality has been added to allow a specific decoding format to be selected for each bit length, this can be used in conjunction with the custom card
formats to add support for additional card populations.

Database Administration
A tab on the settings screen gives the ability to configure the previously hidden backup settings, restore a databaseand purge event data in situations when database space becomes an issue.

Device Management
The frequency of background checking for device health can be controlled via the device management tab in the settings.
Equipment Discovery
Equipment discovery is achieved using the discover button in the equipment configuration screen. Orbis controllers that are connected to the network and
then powered up will be discovered via the Orbis ‘I-Am’ message.

Historic Reports
The reporting functionality has been incorporated into a new screen accessible from the history tile on the dashboard. This provides a means to search for events that occurred more than 7 days in the past.

History Tabs
The history tabs allows quick viewing of events relating to configuration information for equipment and access.

Open Graphic Object
A ‘static’ object is available for use on a graphic to allow the opening of another specific graphic without the need to use the open button.

Open URL Graphic Object
A ‘static’ object is available for use on a graphic that can be configured to open a URL on clicking. For example, to open a web page to a camera configuration screen.

RFID Technology

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a relatively new technology; its first applications were developed in the 1980s. By means of a system with RFID equipment, people, assets or animals can be identified and tracked without direct contact or line of sight. This technology is very efficient in harsh environments such as industrial applications. This also makes RFID technology ideal for vehicle identification because it is not restricted by weather conditions of any kind - it operates well in rain, snow, dirt and low temperatures.

In access control applications, mechanical keys and locks can be replaced by electronic RFID identifiers (transponders and tags) and readers, which leads to cost savings and better security because entering and exiting the building can be better controlled. It is possible to collect, analyse and store access control data. RFID identification does not require physical contact between the reader and the identifier which means that there will not be a need to replace mechanical parts because of breaking or wear. It is also very easy to control access rights. If an identifier gets lost, the locks do not need to be replaced, as would be the case if a mechanical key disappears. The access rights for that single identifier are just removed from the system.
RFID technologies can be categorised by frequency: 125 kHz, 13.56 MHz and UHF technologies are commonly used. The 125 kHz technologies are low frequencies with a lower data transmission speed. These technologies are often used in closed systems that are not compatible with each other. The 13.56 MHz frequencies already have common standards and offer some benefits when compared to lower frequencies, for instance, they enable greater security by offering the possibility of encryption. It is possible to use 13.56 MHz transponders for many applications since they offer the possibility to divide the memory of the transponder into sectors. It is also possible to store data on transponders during transactions.

UHF (Ultra High Frequency) technologies are used for applications requiring longer (2-4metre) identification distances. UHF technologies are often used in logistics applications such as pallet identification. Use of this technology for automated vehicle identification or electronic vehicle registration is growing rapidly as it enables a vehicle to be identified without stopping, even at high speed. Until recently, longer identification distances have required active transponders with a power supply inside. Now, longer identification distances are possible with passive UHF technology where transponders get their operating power from the carrier signal generated by the reader. This leads to cost savings because the transponders last practically forever and they don’t need to be replaced because the battery dies.

Key Features
• Durable and reliable access control readers
• Up to 60% more energy-efficient than other industry standard readers
• Eco-sensitive construction.

EM readers

Lumidigm Sensor Technology

Multispectral Technology
Lumidigm multi-spectral fingerprint sensors unleash the subsurface fingerprint to increase biometric performance and make your application more secure and reliable. The Lumidigm sensor returns superior images on anyone, anytime, in any environment.
• Highly secure and reliable
• Superior image quality
• Lower overall lifetime costs
• Enrols and verifies ALL people
• High user satisfaction
• Better return on investment
• Liveness detection.

Image quality
The accuracy and reliability of any fingerprint biometric is dependent on the image quality of the print itself. Lumidigm’s patented multispectral
imaging system uses multiple wavelengths of light to capture an image of both a person’s external fingerprint
and their identical ‘internal fingerprint’ — the foundational capillary bed.
Even if the external print is damaged or obscured, multi-spectral imaging uses the internal print data to ensure clear, clean images of anyone in any environment. Good images enable good biometric
performance, which lowers the overall lifetime costs of system ownership by reducing management oversight,
workarounds and frustrated users.

Performance
Lumidigm fingerprint sensors enhance the throughput and accuracy of any application. High-quality images are
captured by multi-spectral sensors even when fingerprint ridges are hard to distinguish due to genetics, age,
dirt, finger placement, or environmental conditions.

Lumidigm sensors can easily enrol and verify ALL people — including that 2-5% of the population with “problem fingerprints” that fail to enrol on conventional sensors. The Lumidigm advantage increases return on investment and user satisfaction by eliminating these enrolment problems.

Liveness Detection
Lumidigm provides the biometric industry’s best liveness detection technology to protect against fake and spoof fingerprints. Only Lumidigm continually enhances its detection capability and provides spoof updates
to contain risk and help future-proof your investment. Lumidigm is committed to providing the most secure sensors available.

CARD TYPES

EM Proximity
The EM4102 (125KHz) is a CMOS integrated circuit for use in electronic read only RF transponders. The circuit is powered by an external coil placed in an
electromagnetic field and gets its master clock from the same field via one of the coil terminals. By turning the modulation current on and off, the chip will send
back the 64 bits of information contained in a factory programmed memory array.

The programming of the chip is performed by laser fusing of polysilicon links in order to store a unique code on each chip. The EM4102 has several metal
options which are used to define the code type and data rate. Data rates of 64, 32 and 16 periods of carrier frequency per data bit are available.

MIFARE Classic
The MIFARE Classic family is the most widely used contact less smart card ICs operating in the 13.56MHz frequency range with read/write capability and ISO/
IEC 14443 A compliance.

Smart cards based on MIFARE Classic ICs are a commonly known solution in various applications such as transport and access management. NXP
Semiconductors offers support and local services covering the whole MIFARE portfolio. Improved ESD robustness of MIFARE Classic EV1 allows further
increase of inlay and card lamination production yield.

MIFARE DESFire EV1
Ideal for solution developers and providers wanting to combine and support multiple applications on one
contact less smart card. It fully complies with the requirements for fast and secure data transmission, flexible memory organisation and interoperability with
existing infrastructure.

MIFARE DESFire EV1 is based on open global standards for both air interfaces and cryptographic methods. It is compliant to all four levels of ISO / IEC
14443 A and uses optional ISO / IEC 7816-4 commands. Featuring an on-chip backup management system and the mutual three pass authentication, a MIFARE DESFire EV1 card can hold up to 28 different applications and 32 files per application. 

The size and access conditions of each file are defined at the moment of its creation, making MIFARE DESFire EV1 truly flexible and convenient.

CARD BUREAU SERVICES
Photo Identification Cards can be produced from a basic card with a user’s name and photograph
to a card with secure printing and the name embossed. Dye-sublimation and Re-transfer printers in the bureau ensure a quick response to card printing.

Pre-Printing Cards During Card
Manufacture


Offset printing gives you a rich finish, accurate colours and fine detail. Your logo and design can be brought to life at very little cost. Silkscreen printing enhances the card and gives a more vibrant feel. Metallic inks, pearlescent and spot colours can be combined with the offset process very easily.
