A Revolutionary Reader? Nedap uPass Access

Is a revolution [link no longer available] in access control readers upon us? That's the claim of one manufacturer, who has introduced a line of readers that can read standard credentials up to 6 feet or more. While that itself is not new, they are emphasizing the reader's small size. In this note, we examine Nedap's uPass [link no longer available] reader to see if a revolution is truly at hand.
