Orbit IP: PoE Ethernet reader

An Ethernet-based device designed for registration, attendance monitoring and access control.

Unique to the reader is its Power over Ethernet (PoE) interface, with power as well as communications running through standard LAN cables. This is a one-box solution that can be plugged directly into a computer network, without the need for additional controller, power supply or concentrator hardware.

Orbit IP acts as an HTTP client that communicates with a server via the TCP/IP protocol. Upon detecting an NFC card, the reader sends a request to the web server, while the server can respond with a standard HTTP message containing embedded instructions for the reader to perform actions such as LED sequence flashing or triggering a relay. The reader can access various page extensions such as .php, .asp, .cfm, .pl, and .html, allowing for management systems to be developed quickly and easily.
