TCP3 Authentication / Release Station
From secure printing to industrial robotics, TCP3 enables user authentication and access control security for devices that lack a USB port.
ELATEC’s RFID readers enable organizations to extend the use of their employee identification badge to authenticate for applications beyond physical access. Unfortunately, not all printers and other devices have support for the direct connection of a USB proximity card reader. In these situations, the ELATEC TCP3 Authentication / Release Station extends ID card-based capabilities such as authentication and pull printing to any printing device regardless of the manufacturer, make or model.

TCP ConvertersConnect an RFID reader to an existing Ethernet network
The main purpose of the TCP converters is to enable RFID authentication and access control for devices that lack a USB port, from older single-function printers to industrial robotics. They can be connected on one end to a Local Area Network (LAN) and on the other end to a RFID reader via USB cable. When the user presents a card to the reader, the information is sent over the network to a local server and depending on the response, a print job can be released or, in the example of industrial robotics, operator authorization granted.
