STORM choose HID Global’s iCLASS SE® platform to drive new generation of AXS keypad/readers

1 Jun 2016

Storm introduce the new generation S60 Mullion format  access control keypad with integrated Genuine HID® contactless technology. These keypads will offer enhanced security with dual authentication. A combination of PIN entry and presentation of a contactless card requires both knowledge and possession to achieve authorized access.

Designated as the AXS S60 and S60i, first customer shipments commenced in June.
The new S60 keypad features a narrow format suitable for installation in a door frame (mullion). The keypad also features Storm's signature Halo-Illumination
Developed to meet new accessibility standards, the keypads feature bold keytop characters permanently marked onto full size keys.  Excellent tactile response and tactile delineation make these keypads ideal for use by those with sensory or mobility impairment.  Optional keytop illumination ensures they are suitable for use in dark or partially lit locations.  Impact resistant and sealed against the ingress of water and dust, these keypads are rated for continuous use in both outdoor and indoor locations.

Pairing the legendary durability of Storm keypads with HID Global’s contactless technology creates a new gold standard for an access control interface.   “Storms adoption of Genuine HID technology provides customers with additional choice and options for improved accessibility” said HID’s Thierry Roz (Director, EMEA Embedded Business Development). “Access for those with impaired vision or restricted mobility is seen as much more than a compliance issue. It is a basic human consideration.”
