TCP3 Authentication / Release Station

From secure printing to industrial robotics, TCP3 enables user authentication and access control security for devices that lack a USB port.

ELATEC’s RFID readers enable organisations to extend the use of their employee identification badge to authenticate for applications beyond physical access. Unfortunately, not all printers and other devices have support for the direct connection of a USB proximity card reader, such as those with no USB port. In these situations, the ELATEC TCP3 Authentication / Release Station extends ID card-based capabilities such as authentication and pull printing to any printing device regardless of the manufacturer, make or model.

  • can act as an Ethernet network router

  • enables user authentication and access control for devices that lack a USB port

  • minimizes IT support costs associated with additional IP or MAC addresses while consuming only one network drop from its Host port

  • allows simultaneous communication of print data and printer status at gigabit speeds

  • configuration can be saved for later usage on other TCP3s thus saving expensive man hours

  • optionally available with Power over Ethernet as the source of power

  • supports USB 3.0 and gigabit Ethernet networks

  • can be used to control access to devices which require special operator training and certification
