Automatic number plate recognition systems ( a link to a video of ANPR in action) can be an excellent deterrent and evidence gathering device for crime and speeding. Detection/prevention systems have an additional benefit when used in access control installations. They can be used as a means of counting vehicles in and out, for effective car park management. Additionally, they can allow or deny access and egress when used with your Paxton Net 2 access control system.
The ANPR cameras can be used to replace readers at site entry points and linked with the Net 2 hardware can identify a vehicle using its registration plate. The license reference is stored within the Net 2 software and subject to access rights will be permitted through that barrier/gate at that time.
ANPR is a networked system which reliably reads licence plates at speeds of up to 100 mph with 95-98% accuracy. It can read in the dark and with the glare from vehicle headlights.An unlimited number of traffic lanes with each vehicle being logged on the system’s database
- Precludes the need to purchase, distribute and manage vehicle tags, reducing initial investment and running costs.
- Vehicles can be authorised in advance without the need for the vehicle to be present or for tags to be posted and automatically de-authorised by time and date.
- Licence plates are managed in the same way as standard access control credentials without the need to refer to the DVLC or other external bodies. There are no additional service costs or fees required.
- Licence plates can be managed on the Net 2 system within a user’s individual record. This avoids the need to invest in a separate vehicle and people access control systems.
The NEDAP HD ANPR Camera
The Nedap license plate reader is an all in one camera including High Definition camera, analyser and high power IR illuminator.
The ANPR reader has processing software embedded onboard. By default, the license plate reader features RS485 and Ethernet communication interfaces.
The ANPR Access HD covers nearly all European countries and has a broad list of world-wide countries supporting a large range of IR-reflective license plates. The usage of an HD sensor, in combination with the high power IR, enables reading more complex number plates in more challenging circumstances and from a wider range.
The WIM or Wiegand Interface Module
The Nedap Wiegand Interface Module is a module that allows for easy conversion of the Nedap ANPR reader to a required Wiegand format.
Use in combination with Nedap ANPR
The Wiegand interface module transforms seamlessly integrated license plate reading into a Wiegand badge reader output. It receives the license plate information via RS485 from the Nedap ANPR reader and converts the signal into a required Wiegand format to allow for easy integration into our Paxton Net 2 access control systems, eliminating time-consuming integration associated with alphanumeric license plates.
