About the article


an intelligent access control system

Surveys show that people are feeling increasingly less safe. Consequently, protecting property and buildings receives more and more attention these days. One of the aspects of such protection is access control. The system described here goes further than most such systems. Besides granting persons selective access to specific areas, iAccess allows you to check who was granted access to which area and when.Nowadays, access control systems are available from quite a few manufacturers. These are usually either quite elaborate systems designed for thousands of users and offering a large number of features, or very limited models that are more suitable for private use. Most commercially available systems use electronic keys, such as magnetic cards, badges, iButtons, or transponders. There are also models that use PIN codes and/or biometric features.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
