HD number plate reading offers convenient long-range identification

30 April 2015

A new high definition automatic number plate recognition system (ANPR) for access control is being launched to the UK market providing vehicle identification even at a10m distance.

Unique to the industry, Nedap’s ANPR Access HD offers dedicated capabilities for seamless access control without adaptation, unlike other products.

The HD sensor combined with powerful IR LED lighting enables it to read number plates, ADR hazard plates, etc. in challenging circumstances at distances of up to 10 metres.

Nortech’s MD Stephen Blackler said “We’ve been supplying the standard Nedap ANPR system for two years and it has proved very popular for those access control applications where vehicles can’t be issued with electronic tags.”

The product has been proven to work with several leading access control systems, establishing itself as the ideal solution for vehicle access control and barrier-free entry applications. It is perfectly suited to commercial car park facilities, corporate sites, visitor’s management applications, retail parking and airport parking.

Introduced to the UK by access security specialist Nortech, the ANPR Access HD can be operated in standalone mode or combined with their Norpass PC-based access control software to manage admissions to sites.

While the South Wales headquartered company develops its own access control and vehicle management systems, Nortech has become the main UK distributor of Nedap’s ANPR systems, as it believes the system to be ahead of its field for tag-free vehicle access control.

 “Stephen added “The solutions that we provide using ANPR Access and ANPR Access HD don’t require the client to have access to a public vehicle registration database” 

“We can also provide solutions that keep track of how long vehicles are on site and include exit control to provide added security and customer convenience.”

As a certified Nedap partner, Nortech also provides their other long range identification systems such as uPASS Access, uPASS Reach and TRANSIT, which are already established as reliable RFID tagging solutions.
