Introducing new 'easy installation' 2N Access Unit M access readers

5th September 2023

The 2N Access Unit M has been redesigned to provide easier installation.

2N Access Unit M readers

The 2N Access Unit M is a powerful access control reader that features an in-built controller, supports multiple access technologies, and needs only a single UTP cable for connection and power.

2N's latest variants of their mullion-style readers have been designed with ease of installation in mind.

The slim design of the Access Unit M already offers easy installation in tricky locations such as doorframes - however, to further enhance the easy installation process, 2N have added extra long Ethernet connection cables to these new variants.

The installation process couldn’t be easier now thanks to the nearly 3-metre-long Ethernet Cable. Simply pull it through the door frame, into the ceiling, and connect the access control reader to the IP infrastructure.

What makes the 2N Access Unit M stand out?

  • Sleek Design: The Access Unit M boasts a slimline, mullion-style design, making it an excellent fit for installations in confined spaces, such as door frames in meeting room entrances.
  • Versatile Access Options: The 2N Access Unit M offers support for multiple access technologies within a single unit. These options include RFID, RFID paired with mobile access control via Bluetooth, or RFID combined with a keypad for projects that require two-factor authentication.
  • 2-in-1 Controller and Reader: All the necessary technology is seamlessly integrated into this compact device. This not only streamlines cabling but also eliminates the hassle of searching for the perfect installation spot for the controller. It also functions without requiring communication with a server.
  • Durability Across Environments: The 2N Access Unit M is built to withstand challenging environments. Boasting an IP55 ingress protection rating, it can be confidently installed outdoors, and thanks to the tempered glass front panel, it will retain its pristine appearance even after years of continuous use.
  • Secured RFID Card Reading: Employ MIFARE DESFire cards encrypted through 2N PICard technology, ensuring optimal safety for both assets and individuals.

  • Wall Mounting boxes for the Access Unit M readers

    2N Access Unit M - Flush installation box (916121)
    Mounting accessory that provides a cavity for hiding and terminating the cables in the wall. Typically, the installer will use this box when installing the 2N Access Unit M reader on a brick wall as they can easily cut a hole for the box. The 2N Access Unit M reader is always surface mounted.

  • 2N Access Unit M - Surface installation box (916122)
    Spacer that provides a cavity for terminating the cables in installations such as garages where you can’t drill a hole in the wall.  These walls are typically made of concrete or reinforced concrete.

What User Credentials options does the 2N Access Unit M offer?

The 2N Access Unit M offers multiple options for flexible access such as:

PIN Codes

Using PIN codes means users need to input a unique code for entry into a building or designated area. This method is ideal for granting temporary access to visitors, as a supplementary backup credential, or as a part of multi-factor authentication.

RFID Cards

The 2N Access Unit is available in variants supporting both 125kHz and 13.56MHz frequencies, which you can use if your company wants to switch to a more secure card variant. However, even regular 13.56MHz can be copied, so it's recommended to choose secure MIFARE DESFire cards with encrypted data - the 2N PICard is a great option that the 2N Access Unit M supports!

Mobile Access Control

Embracing the future, this method enables users to utilise their mobile phones as access credentials and boasts numerous advantages. Convenience tops the list in our minds: people are more inclined to forget their RFID cards at home than their phones!

The 2N Access Unit M uses patented Bluetooth technology WaveKey which makes access fast, reliable, and secure.
