The construction site entry experience is transformed by MSite.

A next-generation fingerprint reader which transforms the site entry experience for construction workers has been launched by MSite*, the UK's leading developer of access control and workforce management solutions.

Whereas most fingerprint readers on contemporary construction sites have only a red/green (stop/go) function and often play up due to dirty hands, the MSite fingerprint touch screen system from HRS combines a rugged, all-weather fingerprint sensor with an intuitive, interactive touch screen to revolutionise the access algorithm.

Designed specifically for the foibles and harsh environments of the construction industry, identification speed takes under a second while the MSite fingerprint touch system can match up to 10,000 fingerprint templates. It can even be reconfigured via the MSite website to ask users if they are arriving or leaving before they complete the transaction.

The latest option to the market-leading MSite portfolio, the touch screen system supports access control and time and attendance modes and accepts input from the user to confirm they have understood safety messages before proceeding onto the site - highly beneficial for Health and Safety directors to ensure they get the latest procedural messages across to the workers on the ground. It even gives users feedback about why they may have been denied access, such as an expired accreditation.

Available in multiple languages to cater for the construction industry's diverse workforce as well as wall-mounted and desktop-free; and wireless, cable connected or via 3G/4G, the system can be loaded with a main contractor's bespoke questions. It can also be configured to allow certain users to enter a PIN code for access, instead of presenting a finger.

Built to operate in temperatures ranging from -20˚C to 40˚C, the 12-volt system outputs Wiegand data for integration with standard access control systems.

MSite's head of product design Simon Appleton said: “The MSite touch screen represents a huge leap forward in the technology required to make fingerprint reading in the construction industry a quick and accurate event. The touch screen element also adds a whole new dimension of interactivity between individuals arriving and leaving site and the management team.

“Add to this biometric advancement the access control and workforce management functions of the original MSite system and you have a system which outperforms anything else on the market.”
