Thursday, November 17, 2011 FingerTec 0 Comments

With the recent release of our new product AdapTec Plus, many might wonder what is the role of AdapTec Plus in supporting the terminal. The AdapTec plus is a combination of a power supply with enhanced access control functionalities. It supports FingerTec’s encrypted 26-bit Wiegand communication output; providing enhanced security level for extra protection. With the data encryption, the life span of the terminals can be prolonged without the risk of short-circuiting. 

The H2i’s firmware has been updated to work with the AdapTec Plus. The latest firmware is available for download here
