D.A.C.S.

Door Access Control System

The D.A.C.S door access control system is applied for security of ships at sea and in ports. The system monitors the closed condition of predefined doors by means of electronic door units. These devices are provided with a proximity reader for touchless identification. Each person authorized for door access receives a transponder card, which allows area and time-depending definition of access authorization for each single door.
