The new Loft stand-alone readers are now available: Private      (ref.4530) and Memokey (ref. 4540). For October, we hope to launch a campaign with the new Loft kits, which will include the power source and door release (and proximity cards in the Private kit).

Loft readers are conceived for indoor installations, due to their dimensions (they fit into a door frame or the aluminium profile of office panels), easy installation and design.
(*They appear in the catalogue as 'Slim' readers).

Door controller ref. 4420 enables a more secure and simpler installation by incorporating the door release activation relay on the inside of the installation. Allows connection of Wiegand or Magstripe readers available on the market when Fermax is unable to fulfil a requirement (extended reading range readers, substitution of an old installation, magnetic band readers, ...). May be used with the current MDS system (replacing Wiegand Interface ref. 2476), but where it will provide most advantages is with the new CAC central unit (anticipated for September).

Interface ref. 2338, which lets you connect the PC to the central unit for configuration now includes cable RS-232 as a standard feature. In this way, the final customer does not have to construct it. The cable is 3 metres in length.

For greater distances between the PC and the central unit, ref. 2338 must be placed near the PC and the central unit connected to ref. 2338 by means of a twisted pair (CAT-5 or similar) at a maximum distance of 1,200 mts.


People living in residential areas increasingly wish to protect their facilities against the entrance of intruders to prevent robberies, abuses and overcrowding. The most obvious case at this time of the year is that of access to the community swimming pool.

Centralised access control systems (MDS) have recently been installed in the Florazar II complex in Cullera, Valencia (4000 users) and the Iturbi Building in Valencia (1000 users). Both complexes have an entry and exit proximity reader at the swimming pool entrance, to prevent the same card being used by more than one person (anti-passback), so ensuring that the number of passes issued to each apartment is not abused. In this way, non-residents are unable to access and the number of guests is controlled.
Proximity key ref. 4450 is used, as it is convenient and you can swim with it. The systems have been extended to the garage to allow controlled access to the different buildings making up the facility.

Features of the Florazar II complex:
9 stairways with access from the garage. 3 general entrances. Communal swimming pool.
23 MDS Bruto proximity readers ref. 2552.
7 central units ref. 2434.
2 two-way turnstiles.
4000 proximity keyrings ref. 4450.

Features of the Iturbi Building facility:
11 stairways with access from garage on 2 floors. 2 general entrances.

Communal swimming pool.
24 MDS Bruto proximity readers ref. 2552.
1 central unit ref. 2434.
1000 proximity keyrings ref. 4450


The Royal Nautical Club of Castellon has been fitted with a Centralised Access Control system (MDS) with 4 accesses, combined with electronic door entry system to allow access to visitors. The more than 1000 users can access by means of their proximity cards, personalised with the club logo. A subsequent extension to more accesses and users is also anticipated.

Features of the facility:
4 single-line outdoor panels with 4+N amplifier and MDS proximity reader module ref. 2560.
1 central unit ref. 2434.
1000 proximity cards ref. 23361 personalised with the Nautical Club logo.


The readers in the MDS system must be assigned to zones and configured by means of Wincom+ software. They must be defined as dual (D) except when the anti-passback or capacity control functions are to be used. In these cases, it is necessary to define entry (I) and exit (O) readers, in order to know if the user is entering or leaving the zone.


The functions demanded in hotels are access control to the rooms and energy control.
Fermax provides both solutions by means of proximity card with magnetic strip ref. 2363. Stand-alone proximity readers (City or Loft version) are installed outside the rooms, when simplicity of installation is desired (the readers do not have to be interconnected), or centralised (City version and coming soon in Loft version), in order to carry out management from reception, such as incidents register, authorisations/cancellations of cards, presence of the guest in the room).
The energy saving is made by means of a power disconnector that works with the cardís magnetic strip which, in contrast to the habitual disconnector (microswitch), works only with the card authorised. In this way, when the guest leaves the room, the light and air conditioning is disconnected after a one-minute courtesy pause.

Cards may be customised with the hotel logo.
