Boucherle Pick: Essex Ligature-Compliant Readers

Essex Electronics readers are American designed and manufactured, and known for being robust, no-nonsense readers that are purpose built for tough applications and some-times even tougher compliance requirements. An example is new nonligature compliance requirements for behavioral healthcare facilities and correctional facilities that have suicide watch protocols to protect those in their care from harming themselves. This reader meets that requirement and is designed for durability and reliability. This heavy-duty, vandal- and tamper-resistant stainless-steel reader only protrudes 1/8 inch, which meets or exceeds new ligature-resistant compliance requirements that systems integrators and security consultants must design for when using smart card readers that use genuine HID technology.
