Ontime System have been installing TDSi Access Control Units since 1982 when both Companies were first formed. (That is TDSi and Ontime Systems Limited.) After such a long association customers can expect a high degree of expertise and understanding in the application of these products.

TDSi Access Control Units (ACUs) have developed beyond recognition in terms of functionality since the very early units. Their most basic unit the Microgarde MG series host a range of features to meet the demands of users in these troubled days of casual and opportunistic intruders.

This Microgarde range of ACUs probably meet most commercial users requirements with an inclusive application program supplied with the system.

The Microgarde application enables complete control of up to 32 controllers connected either through a standard computer network or direct cable connections.

A variety of reader technologies may be used with the Microgarde controllers most of which are listed on other pages of this section of our web site.

Access Control Unit (ACU)

One of TDSi's Microgarde ACU's uniquely housed within an Ontime supplied Power Supply Unit.

The MG1 model can control a single door with two readers for In and Out transactions or just one reader for inward movements and a Press To Exit Button for egress. The MG2 doubles up this availability controlling two doors with added features like interlocked lobbies where each door must be opened in sequence.

For more sophisticated systems ask about eXgard where extended networking and reporting is available for multiple sites and very high security.

For integrated Access Control with Staff Time and Attendance where just a low security staff entrance is involved then click Auto:Time Access.

Note: Access control systems are better designed by installers who understand the implications of implementing this equipment so feel free to have an Ontime Systems' Consultant visit your establishment. Use the Contact Us facility of this web site or telephone 0800 975 0960.
