“We selected Idesco readers for this project because they have proven to be functionally reliable, neatly-designed and resistant in various conditions”, says Jacek Ozarowski, Dyskret project coordinator. They also came to rely on Idesco expertise while still selecting a reader supplier for this project. “Over the years, we have had very good experiences with Idesco’s R&D specialists, as well as their technical support”, says Jacek Ozarowski.
Throughout installation, Krakow airport of course needed to remain fully operational. Consequently over 80 of the 450 Idesco readers were installed with installation plates, which support faster, more convenient installation, and permit reader installations over challenging surfaces like metal surfaces or close to another reader.
“Indeed, Idesco installation plates helped us to neatly place readers in difficult sites or over challenging surfaces. They enabled convenient installation with connectors, e.g. on marble wall plates or over metal door frames. In some cases, where a two-way access control was used, two readers had to be installed back-to-back on standard partition walls (i.e. not thick concrete); Idesco’s insulation plates now ensure user cards won’t be read by both readers simultaneously”, says Ozarowski.
Jacek Ozarowski also noted the speedy installation was a crucial benefit since work had to be executed in extremely demanding conditions at a nearly fully operational airport. “I can rightfully say that Dyskret Poland executed the contract successfully and in a timely manner”, says Jacek Ozarowski.
As an experienced and trusted system integrator, Dyskret won a comprehensive contract to deliver to Krakow Airport – in addition to access control – all electrical works and installations, both high- and low-voltage ones, fire alarm, voice announcement system and flight information display system for passengers, IT network, CCTV, and a building management system with ventilation, air conditioning and lighting automation.
