The reader has an ergonomic design with an illuminated keypad and clearly identifiable symbols. It supports touch-free entry with most entry card formats and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation.

Axis A4011-E is a future-proof and generic reader that supports several different card formats in order to meet specific system requirements. It can handle 2 different card formats simultaneously, which simplifies system expansion and enables easy migration from one card technology to another. 

The Axis A4011-E reader features compatibility with Axis A1001 network door controllers, support for most 13.56 MHz card formats such as MIFARE Classic, MIFARE Plus, MIFARE DESFire EV1, iCLASS and SEOS, has built-in tamper switches between housing and wall, high reading speed, handles operating conditions between -25 ºC to 70 ºC (-13 ºF to 158 ºF) and has IP54-rated against weather and dust.

“Since the launch of our successful Axis A1001 network door controller, we’ve had many customers ask about a door reader from Axis”, says Wai King Wong, country manager, Oceania. 

“With the introduction of Axis A4011-E reader we are now able to provide a feature-rich and future-proof door reader suitable for most installations. The reader is based on proven technology from Assa Abloy, a company with great experience in readers and access control solutions.”

The new Axis A4011-E reader has an intuitive user interface with illuminated symbols and a sound indicator to clearly display the status and communicate with the user. The keypad features backlight illumination and durable stainless steel buttons.
