ProdataKey Rugged Readers | Security Information Monitoring

Drapers, UT | March 14, 2022: ProdataKey (PDK), maker of the leading cloud access control platform designed for mobiles, today announced the release of its new “ruggedized” readers for use with cards and holders. 125 kHz keys. The new units, available in plain and mullion styles, with or without keypads, improve upon PDK’s older “ruggedized” readers by combining exceptional weather and vandal resistance specifications in the same model. The new rugged readers feature an IP68 weatherproof rating, making them fully water and dustproof, and an IK10 shock resistance rating – the highest possible. These qualities make them ideal for building exteriors, gates, commercial areas, industrial sites and construction sites. They are also a good choice for schools, given their resistance to student vandalism. Readers can be used as part of any access control system.

The style of the line is commensurate with its durability. All models feature a sleek profile, zinc metal casing, and tempered glass coating that is hard-wearing, scratch-resistant, and won’t crack with prolonged exposure to sunlight. For added security, keypad readers can be used to implement two-factor authentication, requiring users to provide credentials and a PIN to gain access. The keypads are backlit for easy use at night.

“We expect strong demand for our new rugged drives,” said Brach Bengtzen, chief marketing officer at PDK. “They’re attractive and uncluttered, but you can swing a baseball bat at them and they’ll still work. For anywhere readers can get battered by weather or abuse, these devices offer a great solution.”

The rugged drives will be on display at ISC West in Las Vegas, March 23-25, booth 11109. Visit to learn more about them and the full line of PDK products. Rugged drives are available and shipping now.
