ProxiPen® Information
Detex introduces the latest innovation in guard tour verification technology: the new GCS ProxiPen Data Acquisition Unit and TopGuard Patrol reporting software. ProxiPen’s data points are Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags, which the ProxiPen senses and reads automatically whenever they come into its reading range. You don’t need to actually touch the RFID tag to get a quick, accurate reading; just get close!

This means that ProxiPen can read a tag even if it is wet, frosty, dirty, greasy, or painted over. In fact, ProxiPen’s RFID tags may be concealed behind wallpaper, sheetrock, plaster, paneling, mirrors or any other nonmetallic surface; a real plus in applications where aesthetics or vandalism are considerations.

Toughness plus advanced technology – but easy to use. ProxiPen is compact, lightweight and easy to use since it has no external controls. Correct data readings are confirmed by visible and audible signals. Its electronics are sealed in a tough polycarbonate housing, making the reader completely waterproof and resistant to heat, shock and hydrocarbons.

Change your own battery. With its low power consumption, ProxiPen delivers 50,000 data readings from one “AA” battery, which you can change yourself without tools. Any stored data is preserved in non-volatile memory. To discourage tampering, the ProxiPen disables itself if the battery is removed for longer than 10 minutes and records the date and time the battery was removed. The ProxiPen is then easily reset with the TopGuard Patrol software.
The price is right! The ProxiPen kit includes everything you need: a ProxiPen, a data transfer unit, 33 RFID tags, the TopGuard Patrol software, and an incident book – all at an incredibly competitive price. And the TopGuard Patrol software can be used with other GCS data acquisition hardware, including the popular Escorte system – in combination with the ProxiPen if so desired.
