Axis Communications, the world leader in network video, today introduces AXIS A4011-E Reader. The reader has an ergonomic design with an illuminated keypad and clearly identifiable symbols. It supports touch-free entry with most entry card formats and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation.

“Since the launch of our successful AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller, we’ve had many customers ask about a door reader from Axis”, says Ola Jönsson, Business Development Manager, Axis Communications. “With the introduction of AXIS A4011-E Reader we are now able to provide a feature-rich and future-proof door reader suitable for most installations. The reader is based on proven technology from ASSA ABLOY, a company with great experience in readers and access control solutions.”

The new AXIS A4011-E Reader has an intuitive user interface with illuminated symbols and a sound indicator to clearly display the status and communicate with the user. The keypad features backlight illumination and durable stainless steel buttons.

The AXIS A4011-E is a future-proof and generic reader that supports several different card formats in order to meet specific system requirements. It can handle two different card formats simultaneously, which simplifies system expansion and enables easy migration from one card technology to another.

Additional features of AXIS A4011-E Reader include:
• Compatibility with AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller
• Support for most 13.56 MHz card formats such as MIFARE Classic, MIFARE Plus, MIFARE DESFire EV1, iCLASS and SEOS
